Your art is sooo good, I love your style and the way you color, and your lines are so clean and smooth. Do you have some tips or suggestions for who's starting with digital.

Thank you so much! I’m really happy that you like my art. :D I’m going to write this post for complete newbies, but I actually have some specific advice for you near the end. I hope you’ll bear with me!

Below the cut is a step-by-step tutorial to how I make my gifs, and how I make them quickly. There are pictures to follow along with as I make a gif. I am using the latest version of Photoshop and I pay for it, so please don’t come asking me where you can find a free download, I do not know. For the purposes of this tutorial we will be using the gif below. 

Let’s Begin.

A couple months ago I was graciously given the opportunity to make a Game Grumps animated for the Grumps, which premiered on the channel today! I’ve been anxious for it to debut and now that its here I’m almost shocked. This has been a small dream of mine that I never thought would happen– But it did and I’m so glad it could be shared with all of you.

If you’re interested about the process of how I made this animation and my other thoughts feel free to keep reading below the cut!

anonymous asked:

hey, i love your gifs and i just wondered what you use to make them? keep up the great work!! :D

Aw thank you!! I use the mac app PicGIF! It’s $5 and it’s not perfect, but for the price definitely good enough! This is what it looks like:

You can edit gif dimensions, speed, delete individual frames, adjust saturation/hue/exposure/contrast/brightness, add text (and choose text color/size/font/shadow). You can make a gif from video or pictures. It’ll tell you the size too. Main drawbacks are that it crashes pretty frequently and the gifs aren’t like photoshop quality, but again FIVE DOLLARS that I paid ONE TIME!

the main thing you can’t do is crop a gif, but I use to crop gifs! It’s a great website that tells you the size of the cropped gif when you’re done (although it’s usually under the actual size by 0.1)

It also can’t do timed text, so if I want to do that I use 

It also can’t add a picture (like a text post) on top of a gif so I use for that (adding a picture to a gif with this website slows it wayyy down for some reason so I use this site to speed the gifs back up again)

So yeah! Those are the tools I mainly use to make my gifs!

#04: Thoughts On Animate CC

I’ve had Animate for almost a month now. I’m still using the trial version because I haven’t decided if I should get it yet. It probably has the most new features than any Adobe Flash upgrade ever. While a lot of these features will probably be ignored, I still think some of them are a step in the right direction. It’s the reason why I didn’t even bother trying out Flash CC, because I knew nothing would change.

If you didn’t know, Adobe recently rebranded Adobe Flash (CC), which is a program that a lot of people use to animate with, and changed its name to Animate CC. Flash has had a really bad reputation for the longest time with its constant crashing, ugly brush strokes, and overall buggyness. The first version of Flash that I used was CS3 and I’ve used all latter versions except for CS4 and CC and I can definitely say not much has changed. Also, as a side note, I don’t care what any animator says, Flash CS6 is the best, fuck CS3 and fuck Flash 8. In CS6, there are a bunch of features that I find useful (auto save, convert to bitmap, export sprite sheet) but still it doesn’t really feel like they’re adding actually helpful stuff for animators.
