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’m working on 3 Anime/Manga series.  Basically animated comic books online.  I’m going to document all my steps.  One of the biggest things for me is to give it some style and a different look across the board.  I’ve finally decided on the 3 styles for my 3 very different series.

Wink! Multiverse Adventures will be my first order of business.

This is a combination of styles but the main style will be done similar to JOJOs OP style done by Kamikaze Douga Animation.

I think your style is very important to creating something awesome but style can also mask some deficiencies in your own work, make it yours and work within your limitations as an artist yet still set you apart.

Here is more stuff from them.

Here is a method if you are not the best artist.  We can all trace.

Get some friends together, dress them up and do some good old fashioned rotoscoping.

Dress friends up as your characters and use some good old fashioned cinematography and walla you can have a really cool anime.

It worked for Flowers of Evil

Just imagine the stories you could tell including some really cool slice of life anime.

 

I was looking for videos about how to make anime and came across this.

 

Here is the making of video

Now I know what you are thinking.   What can I learn from this?  Actually you can learn 3 important things.

1. You want to make money out of your anime you have to reach an audience.   Or if you simply want as many people to enjoy it you must find an audience.   Notice how may hits this guy has. It is in Spanish.  There are tons of fans in the world who love, love, love anime.  Why not create something specific for some group especially if you are part of said group.  Like this guy.

2. Get out and film live action shots and learn how to piece things together without having first sit down and animate.  It will greatly increase your skills and who says your story has to be animated?

3. If you want it animated then try this…..film it in real life, then animate on top of it.

 

If you are going to make your own anime, you have to be able to animate.   One of the tools of choice is non-other than Flash, now called Adobe Animate or something of that nature.  I wanted to post this step by step guide for some of your newer guys just trying to collect information on how to animate.

Flash is where I started and I still have it on my hard drive today.  It is easy to use and was just what I originally started using as well as many Animators out there.

Adobe Animate is now available for around $20 bucks a month.  But if you cannot afford it there are tons of cool, free animation tools.

Here is the same creator above using FREE Tools.

 

The tutorials above are by Jesse Jones.  I ran into his work when several artists were animating an entire episode of Dragoball.  It was a fun project.
