If you are making your own ahime RWBY to me seems like the one man standard you can reach.   It gives me a bar to reach.   After all this is a popular online anime.  I would love to be this popular.     So it is good to take a look at some criticism behind this internet animation.  This will give you some do’s and not to do’s.  So maybe you can make something even better.

 

When writing your manga, animation, anime, comic, etc you really need to hook people from the beginning.    I found this awesome videos showing you how you need to hook folks in from the start.

 

Yup it is.  Hard as working in the hot sun digging ditches for a living?  Probably not.

But I wanted to share MAStar’s words of wisdom and personal experience in making anime.

 

MAStar has been creating One Punch Man vs Goku.  It was a fun little animation.

He is working on another here and his own anime series.

Wouldn’t it be cool one day to create your own anime and folks dress up like your characters?

Truth is…it is possible.

Monty Oum made his own anime and built his brand and well….

Boom!  Yup it is possible.  What are you waiting for?

My last post was to share some tools you could affordably create MOCAP animations.  In this post I wanted to share ideas on how to put it together.

Here is an example of my work.

I made this for fun.  It took me less than 3 hours.  I combined my mocap system with Poser using Michael 3.0 and an Ironman model I found online.  Now I know it is not much but it was very easy.  Now using this easy method you can put it together and make some really awesome animations very quickly of course imagination not included.

Check out some more Poser + MOCAP animations.

 

I know there are a ton of people out there who love anime and have so many stories in their minds ready to be told.     I’m sure the dream is to go to Japan, find a company they can submit to and have their stuff made into anime.

They wish they could make their own but lack the actual talent to do so.  Plus no money.  This concept is also the same if you are trying to make a comic or manga.  It is still a challenge for the person who can’t draw.  So what can you do?

Collab?  Nope folks won’t really collab with you.  I know.  I tried.  So what can you do?

Well you may have to spend some money but maybe not as much as you think.

Brian Haberlin showed a really cool way to make comics.  I posted here earlier about it using Poser.

This is a great way to make a comic/manga without knowing necessarily how to draw.

But what if you don’t want to use the standard Poser characters?  Hire someone to model and rig the characters for you.  Now I know it costs money for this but the cool thing is this.   You can find modelers out there who will work with you.   Start simple and work your way up.

Sketchfab is a great place to find some modelers.

I’m doing a search right now for my newest characters and my current comic.

 

 

I know it is a little late but RWBY is back.

One reason I really love RWBY is knowing how this show was created.  It really helped me realize that this cool stuff can be created by even the smallest of groups using a little imagination and creative thinking.

I wish Monty Oum could have seen this show to fruition.    Thanks Rooster Teeth for a promising new season.

 

I always loved this little tutorial.  It is from the creator of GANTZ  GANTZ has been made into a manga, movie and anime.

The author uses 3d models, traces over them and adds detail and walla he has a manga.

Creator Gantz uses Poser

 

Here is some more of his current work.  That might be an idea to make your own manga or anime.

In the next few posts I will be showing you more of the stuff I will be working on and I will be using this method more readily but using Poser similiar to Brian Haberlin

Here is his method.  I hope you can glean some off this method.
