I’ve completed a few more shots from my Naruto vs Sasuke animation and figured it was about time to post another little gif of some of what I’m doing! This time, I decided to show some of my process, for those that’re interested…
As you can see above, I have 3 separate animations at different stages of the process. Here’s a breakdown:
 I always start out with a scribble test to get the general idea of what I’m doing. It’s ugly, it’s dirty, but it’s a very important first step! You never want to start out straight in to detailed drawings with animation. Make sure you’re happy with the motion first, then worry about good drawings.
 I then did up a naked mannequin rough to figure out what I’m doing with the body. No details on the face or clothes yet, just want to make sure I have my general proportions and anatomy where I want them. I also worked out a lot more of the motion. I made tweaks in the final, but I’m setting things in stone here.
 Finally, I dress it up, tie it down. If you look closely, different parts of Naruto’s body are different colors. This is because I worked in passes. In cases with this many moving parts, it’s best to focus on one thing at a time for the best motion. First, I started out with his clothes. This allowed me to experiment with how I had the cloth flapping around in the wind without worrying about the rest of what’s going on. After that, I worked out the hands and face. Getting the volumes of the face right can be a bit tricky when turning it in space, but there’s a few tricks I might do another little tutorial gif on in the future. Finally, I did the hair then bandana in a similar fashion as the clothes.
Hope that’s helpful to some folks out there! I’ll be posting more of my progress in the near future. :)
My new lazy hair tutorial because the internet here is so slow.
Check out my Lazy Eye Tutorial! » [x] « warning:
my music plays automatically and i cant edit it because of the internet, but it’s a soft music so no worries
I didn’t see any many galaxy/nebula brushes floating around, so I made my own! (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧*:･ﾟ✧ Hope someone find it helping ;v;
You have to add detail and effect by self, but it’s pretty easy!! Maybe I make tutorial on it later ;v;
I suggest detail and blend layers on luminosity or addition!! Use bright colours!
I suggest using a watercolour brush on following sets:
Min size: 60%
Keep opacity: yes
Smoothing Prs: 50%
Edge Hardness: 0
Min Density: 0
Max Dens Prs: 100%
Hard <-> Soft: 100
Dens: Yes Size: Yes Blend: Yes
I suggest using a brush on the following sets:
Min size: 3%
Keep opacity: no
Edge Hardness: 0
Min Density: 10
Max Dens Prs: 49%
Hard <-> Soft: 0
Dens: Yes Size: Yes Blend: No
… AND THAT IS THE WAY I MAKE FIRE! Simple and messy “how to gry”.
I will add quick smoke tutorial / step by step too Just wait. \o/
