I really liked the intro this guy made.  It looks pretty good especially animated by one person.  I thought I’d share with you some of his video tutorials on how to make anime.  Again the process works in standard animation as well.

I’m going to throw this one in as well.  Animating with Adobe After FX.

Live2d Euclid is looking amazing.  I want you guys to keep an eye on this software.

Imagine combined several methods together to create your anime.

This one would be great because you could draw it yourself or again you can get the aid of a 2d artist and then combine it with this software and if you remember we showed you in a previous tutorial how to make Anime Backgrounds.   Well combine this and it looks like it supports MOCAP and whalla you have a 2d show.  It also looks like it supports facial capture so you can actually get your voice actor and actually record as she does lines.

Wow guys!  Awesome blossom.   I hope you are starting to put alot of these things into thought and you are starting to plan your anime.

Imagine the possibilities.

 

I love this trailer for the comic book called Kairos.

It just makes me want to see this as a movie.

Maybe you can make a manga and animation that go hand in hand as a promotion!  In truth Anime and manga go hand in hand.  Often times Manga tests the popularity of something and if popular is created into an anime.  In turn that anime creates Manga sales.  Maybe an idea when you are deciding to get into business.

Part of making your own anime is not really just a step by step process.  I can share many methods with you but you as the artist need to come up with your own techniques based on your time and skill level.

Personally I’m more into the 3d CG world because once digital assets are created then you can move them around any which way you want.  However there is a drawback to cg as discussed in a previous article.

I want you in your endeavors to experiment with different methods.  Here is an example of how some minimal movements makes for some interesting animation.
