I drew the background/most of the assets in around 3-5 hours. the animation that was frame by frame probably took a solid 3-4 hours mostly because I tried a couple of techniques before settling on rotoscoping jun’s walk. converting this all to AE and still learning the program took a good 3 hours, but it’s a long shot so it was worth all of this.
It didn’t feel long to do because nothing was busy work, really
I started with the main composition, drawing everything in photoshop and then getting ready for after effects.
I used the kitchen to frame everything and figure out what I needed to draw extra of, because really the canvas looks like this:
there’s a lot of overlap/hidden parts, these parts will move more in the panning motion so stuff like the table in the front needs to be completely made.
each bit is on its own layer so it can move at different rates when putting it into AE. The really bright red bits are for masks so I don’t forget, the red on the stove is for their reflections, and the red on the TV is for green screening the news later (need to put it into premiere… lol).
I also did some rotoscoping and animation in photoshop to be carried over.
bai’s head is a couple of drawn heads turning off and on. I added a bit of give to them too.
jun’s walking is a rotoscope (drawn ontop of video) of myself walking.
again! each bit is on its own layer, and it basically turns off and on as the animation goes on. this also applies for their reflections!
we haven't seen anyone from Thunderclan yet so, Tallcloud or Burningwing?
To start off i gotta say Burningwing is my very first wc oc i made over 10 years ago. My girl. My essential Thunderclan prophecy cat.
Burningwing’s parents are Darkrain and Foxfeather. Born in Thunderclan, she had a brother, but PLOT TWIST as kits they WANDERED OUT OF CAMP like bad little kits and got lost. They ended up getting found by a rogue gang and her brother was killed. Burningwing escaped and was found by a patrol and since that incident she became set on exacting justice/revenge on the rogues that killed her brother. She’s working on it. There’s just a lot going on in her life right now but she’s gonna get to it soon ok. Like right now something fishy is going on in her clan, cats have disappeared and she’s going to get to the bottom of it, but right after that some justice is gonna be served to those rogues.
Burningwing has a lot to say about anything you’re doing and a lot of questions to ask before she’ll agree to follow along with anything. And about that decision that you thought was a good decision? It was a terrible decision and you should have consulted Burningwing first because she would have set you right before you made that decision she didn’t approve of. Despite being very assertive and argumentative, at her roots Burningwing cares a lot about others and just wants the best for them. She is very spunky and pugnacious. Very set on JUSTICE and following her own moral code at all costs, and is perpetually ready to fight anybody and everybody for it. Prone to giving inspirational speeches. Cannot stay in her lane. She is a Protagonist
Tallcloud is an elder in Thunderclan. She was born as a kittypet, but joined Thunderclan as a young cat. She had a mate, who is long past, and has one surviving daughter, Ashnose. She is very prim and proper, a refined old lady type. She can be a bit cold, but she helps the queens with their kits and babysits them often.
I always have a lot of feelings about these two being bffs who watch cheesy movies together all the time so have every screenshot I have of them together bc they don’t have enough time together in the show
with added captions bc @electric-bluejay didn’t like that my jay post last night didn’t have any captions lol
Jimin 14. I might die today. 32. Can you pick me up? I’m lost.
Word count: 1677
Genre: angsty but mainlyfluff (Idk why me writing about Jimin always turns out like this lol)
A/N: This request was by the lovely @kpopisallmylife, like a million years ago. I hope it was worth the wait. Enjoy and take care xoxo.
You still couldn’t believe this was finally happening.
You looked down at the tiny fingers intertwined with yours. They were barely out of the sleeves of that oversized black sweater you loved, the one you gave him the last Christmas before he came back to Korea.
You remembered that day like it was just yesterday, although it had actually been over a year. You were holding your tears back the moment you handed him the black sweater you’d made yourself.
You could not show him how devastated you were to know he was moving to the other side of the world, even if it was to achieve his dream of becoming an idol.
It was a selfish feeling, but you couldn’t help it, it was his dream against your relationship, and you didn’t want to get in the way of them. But you still felt sort of betrayed because of him putting you aside because of it.
He promised you no matter how far you were from each other, you would always be his one and only true love. “I’ll wear it when you visit me and we meet again”, he said squeezing your hand gently.
