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.

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.

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.

Watching this video reminds me of the time I started using Flash and that Ifinally had the ability to do what I always wanted to do and that was make animation.

Looks like I was not the only out there.  Enjoy this little documentary about the Rise of Animation.

Here is part 1 by the way!

I love 2d animation but for a one man show I think 3d is the way to go because once assets are built animation goes quite quickly.    Here are some great 3d animes that show you what can be done.

I’m okay using 3d to tell my story.

I came across this beautiful tribute awhile back.   I loved the style and loved all the little details.  This tribute to Hayao Miyazaki is awesome.

And now here is the breakdown.  The guy actually uses free software to make most of this.

Its a lot of work but beautiful!
