does anyone know or have recommendations for a good animation program?
ive tried my hand at
flash/animate cc: although i know its regarded as the standard amongst animators, its sort of clunky and buggy for my personal work preference.
tvp: i think this program has a bigger learning curve, but has very beautiful traditional animation aspects to it. though i dont know how it fares well against programs like flash or toonboom in terms of keyframes.
toonboom: i was pleasantly surprised with this one. it sort of feels like a combination of flash and tvp. although animating can be a bit clunky like flash, i like it better than the latter.
csp: i dont want to drop $100+ on csp yet (i have the pro license already) since it has limited features compared to the rest, but nice brushes and vector features.
opentoonz: i downloaded this one since it was free and studio ghibli uses this too. there are too many features im unfamiliar with, so i guess this program has a bigger learning curve than the rest.
moho12/anime studio: im currently using a trial version of this one, but this program seems to be oriented around puppet rigging/bone animation. im trying to practice more frame by frame
Hey Everyone! I’m sorry I haven’t posted in so long, but the reason is because I just graduated from RISD! I’m a real person who does real people things now! I promise I’ll get back to drawing more regularly when things get settled. I will actually be moving to Ohio to work as a toy designer for Little Tikes. If anyone has any cool suggestions please let me know!
So does anyone know of a good artist on here who would be willing to use detailed descriptions to draw some characters for me? I’m willing to pay them for their work and would love to discuss rates with someone who is able. I’m trying to write a book and would love to have full body character profiles of some of my characters. If anyone knows someone please message me!
Does anyone know the original artist of this image? The only sources I can find are various tumblr blogs and we-heart-it pages. I tried to check out the blogs to see if the artist owns it but It doesn’t show me the image
My neil-gaiman inspired tattoo is complete! I know I’ve always said no bands or books because things change but honestly I’ve adored his work since I hid Sandman under by pillow because I knew my mom would find it and deem it inappropriate for a 10 year old. Pretty sure my enjoyment of his work isn’t going to change, even if my understanding does. He’s part of what inspired me to start scribbling in journals. Music and writing, I’m such a cliche… If my tattoo artist had a tumblr I’d tag him. He managed to turn my rambling description into art, and I adore it. If anyone’s curious it’s the ending of “A Writer’s prayer.” Look it up, it’s wonderful. Few questions I keep getting. Yes, it hurt. Yes I write, A LOT. Yes, I know it’s a very big piece of art. No I’ve never met Mr. Gaiman but I am going to hear him speak in February. Pretty damn excited. Thank you.
I also learned that there are two types of people. Those who fucking love Neil Gaiman and his work, and those who squint at me and go ‘Wait, who?'
Unknown Artist - Thinking in Visual Abstractions Collage. This was posted on my 1st tumblr as an “unknown artist” and I still haven’t been able to find who the artist is. I’ve had the image for a couple of years. Does anyone know who the artist is?
According to the spanish Wikipedia page, which I tried to read with my rudimentary knowledge of that language, this seems to be some group of artists. But I have no idea if this (found at roughly 39°20'13" N 2°59'27" E) actually has anything to do with it.
