Hey ya’ll.

I just wanted to stop and chat a bit and tell you how much I enjoy working on this website.  There are a few big things coming down the pipe.

I will be working on 3 animated cinematic comics.  I’m going to be doing it in 3d so I am building the assets.  I will actually be showing you how to build those assets and how I do this stuff step by step.

I can’t wait.

But I had a question.  I was wondering what type of tutorials would you like?  What type of inspiration?  What would you like to see here on this website?

Usually I look all over the web for the best tutorials and share various methods you can use to make your own animation/anime.  Now I would like to know if there are any specifics to 3d anime, 2d anime, etc.

Please feel free to share.

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.

 

So you have a great story and want to tell it.  You want to make an Anime or Anime?  Or would you rather make a Manga?  Well….why not combine the two in a visual novel.

I see a few advantages to this.  If you are not the best artist you could still hire someone to make some of the characters for you thus reducing the cost to make and yet you would still be able to tell your entire story with fewer drawings.

Here are some of the top Visual Novels

Here is a free software to help you make your own visual novel.

Here is a video breaking down a rig for Puppet Animation.  Personally I’m okay with it if it is creative and good.  I guess because I come from the old flash days when you had to do things differently because there was no streaming at the time.  Tween animation helped keep file sizes down.    Because of this I’m okay with this type of animation if done correctly.

Here is a tutorial breaking down a rig.

Here are examples of good old fashioned tweening.  Funny thing is this has become really popular over the years even in mainstream work.

I know she is making names for manga but this is a good hack to creating memorable character names.

Thank you my mangakaLife over at YouTube.  I love your stuff.
