how to do the 3d effect

anonymous asked:

how do you get that "3D" effect on your art?

OK so you make your lineart


color lineart

now duplicate the lineart !

then ‘preserve opacity’ for the duplicates and set it to multiply

then for the duplicates, change the colors to these

now you get this 

then lower the opacity of the duplicate layers somewhere in 20-30%

then move those layers a bit like this

then merge the duplicate layers to the original lineart


What is Dark up to?

(In case you didn’t know, some Darky shit happened in Mark’s video Don’t Play This Game)

2:49- The first shifty thing that happens in Mark’s video. Mark says “What happens if I quit the game?” Reality bends, and we hear that creaking that we heard when we first saw Dark again back in February. 

4:43- Mark wrote down what the game was saying and is saying it along with it. Again, we hear the creaking and we see as the facecam zooms in, loses its color, flips, and multiplies. Mark’s voice layers and distorts, eventually becoming so distorted we can’t understand it. There is no center voice that sounds like Mark at all. It’s all Dark.

6:04- Mark says “Bye, bye” as he always does, and he waves at the camera. But as he’s smiling, that 3D effect shows up again. The black and white background with blue and red. Even though it’s Mark, Dark is still there distorting reality, because that’s what he does.

But this shit right here is what got me:

Every time Mark says this, he looks straight at the camera, as if talking to us. But it’s not Mark, is it? That’s not how Mark speaks. He isn’t monotone like that. Distorted reality, layered voice, and that piercing ringing sound are all Dark. So do we understand Dark? 

Let’s be honest, Dark knows we don’t understand. He knows that we have no clue what’s going on and that we’re scrambling to make sense of it. And maybe he wants us to understand. Or maybe he doesn’t. Maybe our confusion makes us easier to control. The more confused we are, the more we theorize, and the more attention he gets.

So, my dear Dark, what are you up to?

(and let’s not forget that Mark was a little shit when he tweeted this)

His game. Thanks, Mark, for breaking the fandom again.

How do you do the line thing (lol) where it's black lineart over a ryb or myc looking mother layer of line art and it makes the lines look somewhat blurred and like your looking at a 3D thing without glasses (I laughed while typing this bc ur getting anons asking about things ur not sure what they're talking about and it's not like something I need to know immediately. Thank )


OK THIS ONE I THINK I KNOW WHAT YOURE TALKING ABOUT LOL its called chromatic aberration! i use it modestly since it can strain the viewers eyes or it really just depends on my mood. there LOTS of ways to achieve this effect, but this is how ive been doing it for years0

go to the channels panel which is right next to the layers panel

select one of the channels, i usually like going bottom up

*i should mention i usually zoom really close into the canvas to do this step. the farther the distance you move the channels from each other, the stronger the 3d effect

*i blurred the edges of her hair, added a grain gradation from the left.

hopefully this helps!! (and was the right tutorial LOL)

Alright people. I’ve been seeing so many posts of “OMG the RTTE animation is so horrible compared to the movies” and “Give us the better animation DreamWorks!” also “The animation is so crappy if they’re going to make a show why not actually make it good” and more and more hate comments about the shows animation.

People. Think about this for just a couple of minutes, and then you’re opinion may change. 

So, animators usually have a couple of years to work on a movie, and it took five years to make HTTYD 2. Guys, now compare that to how long RTTE animators have to animate thirteen, 25 minute long episodes. They have only about half a year to do that people! A half a year to animate 325 minutes of 3d animation! Do you really expect the animation to be spot on perfect when they only have that much time to do so much? That’s what the movies are for. If you want a really high definition, lots of detail and all that DreamWorks awesomeness, go watch HTTYD and HTTYD 2. The tv show is awesome as well, and the latest season was terrific. You can tell that the animation and effects have been improved, and even though it’s still not nearly as good as “the movies” that hasa to be expected. The series is terrific given to the amount of time they have, and I think we should be thankful that DreamWorks takes the time and effort to make it for us. So please, stop complaining. If you don’t like the animation, stop watching it and stop complaining. You can complain once, but stop complaining over and over everywhere you go about it. The show isn’t bad, and although it may not be “terrific” like the original movies, the tv show is still good. The storyline and plot is awesome, and the animation is really good, compared to some of the crappy 2d animation we have today. (I have nothing against 2d animation, actually, I like it just as much as 3d, I’m talking about some of the other Nickalodean tv shows) So please, be grateful to the writers and animators for doing such an awesome job on the time they have.                

Thank you DreamWorks for Race to the Edge, especially season 4. You made me proud. :D

Reblog if you agree with what I said above.

There, finished it…after struggling with it for about 4 centuries

hmm…this may or may not be a follow up to this only in a messier place and less clothing ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) i needed nsfw mikayuu alright

You can also find a lil’ wip thing here if you’re into that

Please do not share/repost my art anywhere without my permission. Thanks!

so I decided to combine this request with @owlsshadows‘s suggestion in the stream today… I really do not know how to 3D-ise 2d characters huh 

(thank you anon for the request!! I really need to draw reigen more… if not for this godforsaken cough I would have spent a bit more time on this. gosh the effect hurts I shouldve done that by hand)

Animation question: What software do you use? I've used Flash in the past, but recently am trying to learn After Effects. The tutorial I followed has me rig the 2D artwork and use controllers to animate vs Flash where I draw or use movie clips. What does the industry use and how do they animate? I want to learn the right tools to get into the industry.

Most shows that are animated in North America (as opposed to overseas which is what we use) are done in either Flash, Toonboom Harmony, or Maya. A few use After Effects in addition. It’s good to know all of those, but I’d say to focus on Flash if animating a 2d show is what you really want to do. If you want to go into features, you have to know how to animate in 3D.

anonymous asked:

did you go/are you going to college or anything for computer stuff, or are you just sorta teaching yourself and learning as you go? Love your stuff (and your style)!

Hi anon! I went to Google And YouTube University haha.

Seriously though, I’ve never taken a formal class on game design or 3D art; I’m entirely self taught and I learned everything I know from Google, YouTube, and asking questions on forums. Anything I want to know how to do, I just look up and research it!

There are plenty of free resources out there for learning game dev and 3d art, so you guys can totally learn everything I know how to do for free. Seriously, if you know how to Google effectively, you’ll be surprised at the things you can teach yourself. And don’t be afraid to ask questions! Forums are here for you, but also be sure to research your question before posting !

Do you have any tips on backgrounds? Yours are so stunning! (ʃƪ ˘ ³˘) ・*♡

OH gosh, well a good place to start would be these:

using focal plane for the illusion of space

background tutorial from Over the Garden Wall

Another thing that got me started on thinking of depth within a flat space was this aftereffects tutorial.  DEFINITELY look around their website, they have lots of free tutorials, they’re the same people who did the VFX for the holograms in SW:TFA, and a lot of their effects cant really be applied if you dont have aftereffects and their plug-ins, but their method of thinking can(which is more important). Their attention to detail is exquisite, if a bit dry to listen to.  

A lot of their work is creating the illusion of something that doesn’t exist in as a realistic manner as possible, and that means of thinking in a 3D space, anticipating motion, wind, lighting effects, and how all of this affects not only your area of focus, but the area surrounding it.  They think in terms of how an 3d object is presented in a 2d space and how the eye is drawn around the picture. Yeah their technology is expensive, and you probably don’t have it either, but their basics are super solid and they usually have tips that can be applied to all types of digital art. Its a good look into how the pros do it. It isnt strictly background work, but it all definitely applies when youre thinking of constructing a background that interacts with your character properly

But if you want example of how I do it, Ill put in under a cut:

Hi! Your edits are really beautiful omg please never stop making them ♥ could you please please (if it's not a lot to ask) share how you make them? I mean all of them have specific "sharpening" and a little bit of those red-greenish shadows (I LITERALLY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO EXPLAIN I'M SORRY English is not my first language). I'm still new to editing and I want to learn. Thank you for reading❤

hello~! ^^ don’t worry, english isn’t my first language either hehe! thank you for your wonderful words sweetheart!!

the “red-greenish shadow” is a 3D effect i use and i do it like this !

and for the sharpening i use smart sharpening and the following adjustments:

(i’m sorry that this is in german but you just have to copy the adjustments ^^’‘)

Hot dang, I’m pretty happy with this considering it’s my first time doodlin 2D digitally, and I didn’t even use construction shapes??! WOW!!!! and to top it off I’m goin all off memory!!! holy moly!!!! 

yay good job me
