Animation Process

I’ve gotten many messages asking about how I did my animation, so I thought I’d make a process gif and explain the steps

1.  Traditional pencil sketch using a grid method to match to the reference stills
2.  Block in color digitally 
3.  Add background

It’s that simple!  I did this for 18 frames in Paint Tool SAI and then assembled them in Photoshop to make a gif

Here’s a link to the animation if you wanna see the full thing
