If you are going to make an awesome anime you need more than good art, giant robots and big breasts to make something awesome. You need a good story. Here is some great tips to coming up with a story idea.
I wanted to share some of my favorite covers to some great anime theme songs.
So why am I sharing this? Well if you are going to make your own anime you do not want to forget MUSIC! Music is important to any anime. It builds the moment and builds the crescendo. You know the hero is about to win and things are going to get excited when it happens and it connects people to your story in ways you cannot even fathom. But how excited do you get when you hear this?
Yes music is powerful. You want people to connect to your music. One great thing is there are tons of musicians who love anime and would work with you on creating an awesome track! This can be one of the most important parts of your story. So think long and hard about creating an awesome theme with an awesome singer/songwriter. Today it is all but possible!
I love how this guy breaks it down Anime style. His stuff looks really good.
Grab some tools and get to it. The power is in your hands.
We talk about making anime. Truth is that year after year it is getting easier and easier to do it on your own or with some friends.
For example check out the latest trailer for Gantz 0.
Here are some behind the scenes.
So maybe combine Poser, Iclone or DAZ3d with one of the packages below.
Personally I’ve used IPIsoft but I’ve recently been thinking about Iclones Mocap or Iclone mixed with Perception.
Hey Perception if you want to give me a mocap suit and Iclone you want me to start making my anime using your stuff that I promote please call me. LOL.
Seriously….call me. Perception Neuron looks awesome.
Okay back to our story. Did you know the creator of Gantz actually used Poser in creating his comic?
So why not use something like POser, Iclone or DAZ to make your stuff?
Now I need to find some cheap facial capture software. If you know where to find it please let me know!
I love it. Reallusion please get me one of these. I will tell everyone about it till the end of days.
Hey folks I know a lot of you who make anime will eventually want a fight scene.
So here are some fight scene videos to learn from.
Here is an artist showing us how to use Sequencer to make cinematics. First let us show you the level of work you can do in UE4
Here is the making of this awesome looking cinematic and here are some videos that can show you how to do it yourself.
Here is the making of…
I hope you can see the possibilities. This animation was done in real time/live. They used characters and motion capture.
Motion capture is getting a lot cheaper. . I showed a video in the posts that shows just how much cheaper they are getting. So the question is can you combine Cheap motion capture, with say Poser, Iclone or Daz characters?
Imagine using something like the characters below. Popping some mocap ln there and using Ue4 for the render?
Michel Victor has some cool work.
He has extensive tutorials on how to add animation to a still drawing. You don’t have to make the whole anime frame by frame. Why not do a manga with a little bit of pizzaz to it.
You can get your tutorials here…
So I wanted to tell you about one of my favorite creators Brian Haberlin. It looks like his graphic novel Anomaly is coming to life on the Hollywood screen.
Relativity has closed a deal to finance, produce and distribute Anomaly, a live-action feature based on the interactive comic book created and written by top showbiz lawyer Skip Brittenham and Brian Haberlin. The script will be written by Ed Ricourt and Joe Roth is producing with Relativity’s Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker Tooley.
Which I think is totally awesome for him!
I’m sure many of you would like to create and get something on the screen, like a full fledged anime. Well truth is you can. You just have to create it first in some form or other.
I remember a great storyteller and one of my favorite, if not my favorite creator of all time, tell me if you create it they will come.
That man was Doug Tenapel.
So guys if you really want to do this and get an anime created go for it. At least make a manga and put it on Webtoons or something to that effect. Then you will see if they come or not.
This has a sort of an Appleseed, Final Fantasy feel to it.
Here is a CGI Breakdown.
I was thinking could you make a Final Fantasy looking Anime, Cartoon or Manga using Poser or Daz 3d?
I was thinking you could take a few elements like this and do something similiar to the above without having to create every single asset.
Get to it folks.
Also why are almost every short animation out there about someone getting chased by something else in a weird world. Do we like being chased?
