If you asked me a year ago if i will ever draw myself, I would have said no. But if its the only way we can ever be in the same picture, I’ll draw myself standing next to you over and over again to remind me even if we live all the way across the ocean from each other, art and internet can keep us together. Thank you for being you and the biggest ray of light in my life. Happy birthday, my special bean :’)! You mean so much to me and more!!!
Process gifs of the late Juuzou graphic I made for his birthday. Forgot to record some parts, but I hope this helps anyone in seeing what goes on in making this or curious in trying it themselves. Thanks to those who watched me do the Photoshop part in my livestream!
1) Original image from the Tokyo Ghoul illustration book (zakki)
2) Cleaning, redrawing, separating body parts in Photoshop
Cleaning, redrawing, and separating the main body
(if you’re on mobile, you can slide your finger on the gifs back and forth to see the frames and moe Hanbee more clearly)
Continuing with the head, eyes, and hair
3) Movements in After Effects
Moving the pieces and adding the color and text (certain parts were intentionally omitted from this time lapse; sorry for bad quality lmao)
Extra adjustments (forgot to record where I change to a bluer scheme and take out the paragraph)
4) Result + comparison (total time: way more hours than it should’ve been tbh)
