redraw animation

3

Since my tablet’s apparently broken, I was seeing if I had any doodles to post while I can’t draw digitally. I came across these… The top I drew like a week ago (right before my tablet crashed), the second I drew like a month ago, and the third is from roughly six months ago.

I’m happy with where my progress has come. ^^;

I did a couple of passes for this same shot. This one is a very short yet hard shot for me to do. 

My 1st pass is a very old take, and the early design of the character didn’t really have a focused direction - so it needed to be redone for sure. I realize he’s probably doing a bit too much for this scene; it being borderline over-acted.


The 2nd pass was definitely a lot more controlled, but I felt it lacked the intensity from the 1st pass. It was not dynamic enough, and the character felt like he wasn’t emotionally in the scene. It felt like he was just gliding to the poses, so it didn’t really have enough character to it. (Also, it’s evenly timed…)

The 3rd pass, I actually got advice and feedback from my friend Rune - who helped me figure out the poses. Draftsmanship and clear drawing are some of my wain weaknesses, so its always great to have someone else point out what causes the issues. Its pushed, yet more controlled and simplified. The gun leaving the screen as he swings adds a dynamism to the animation. It’s much snappier, for this being part of an action segment; it makes sense. I’ll have to come back and fix the drawing a bit so its a bit closer to the model of the 2nd, but I definitely learned a lot from re doing this shot a bunch. 

This feeling, when you are a fifth Dragon and Dragon X Kumei Formation was created only for four people.

I wanted to finish it with linearts ect, but I love so much that silly Jack sketches, that I decided to send this gif like that.
Also I love that idea of ‘Jack is the fifth Dragon’ AU.

This has to be the fastest animation I have ever done.

Screenshot animation redraw of my now favorite episodes of SVTFOE. Everything in this episode was amazing but this shot has the prettiest light. I just need to make a redraw.

“I’m sorry. I can’t kiss you.

Rei, Ami, Mako and Minako…

They all died before they could even kiss the boy they loved.

So, I can’t find happiness just by myself.

I’m sorry.

I’m not going to run away. 

There are still things I have to do.

Watch me. I’ll do my best.”
