I thought this was a great tutorial.  It shows how to use 3d reference to make an actual 2d animation.   If you have a hard time drawing this might be the way to do things if you want to do 2d.

Here is if you want to do more manga still frame comics

 

When writing your manga, animation, anime, comic, etc you really need to hook people from the beginning.    I found this awesome videos showing you how you need to hook folks in from the start.

 

Here is some more “watch the master” at work!   This has a great interview and was fun to watch Mighty Otaking work while chatting with PikaPetey.  There are a ton of gems in here so feel free to watch the recorded live stream!

Well here is your chance.    MightyOataking has a Patreon going on right now with project files.

If you don’t know who mightyOtaking is please check out his work below.

He uses a lot of 3d reference to make it look really cool and speed things up.

 

 

Okay I’ve been into UE4 for some time.  I wanted to share with you this really awesome video showing you step by step how to animate a scene.

While UE4 is for making games its built in Sequencer could be used to Render and create great looking animations for you.  I’ve spoke about this in the past but here is a more in depth tutorial.

If you want to make something that resembles GANTZ  I could see combining UE4 for rendering with DAZ and Poser for animation and characters.

Also a really interesting idea is to make a 3d VR anime film.   That would be awesome.
