What if Asriel lived and developed his magic?  Hope you guys enjoy!  Sound Design done by Strelok, and music done by Sully Orchestrations and animation done by me.

A 22-minute cartoon, at 24fps, has 31,680 individual frames.

Even with movements often done two frames at a time, or ‘on twos,’ that’s still a staggering 15,840 frames that need to be animated.

Only a certain amount of pre-drawn characters and objects can be re-used, depending on the plot’s needs.

As such, even for a show like Scooby-Doo that re-used cels, large sections of animation still needed to be drawn fresh, frame by frame.

So, what I’m saying is, with 15,840 frames, tight schedules, and low budgets…

…well, to paraphrase Joel Hodgson, the frames can’t all be gems.

Iiiiiiit’s that time again!

An animation update. This time of Anny! The more progress I make on the first act, the fewer shots I have that feature Anny which makes me sad. So, I’ve been trying to spread them out as I go. So many shots of Jon… so many..

Nothing new to post so i put here an other ID i worked on with goldenwolf team (http://runwiththegoldenwolf.tumblr.com/) last year. It was the second one done for the show star versus the force of evil, so this time we put some (simple) animated background for a change. Here are my rough animations :

Monologue assignment from 1st year of TAW with a grumpy Wirt (Over the Garden Wall) I just now tied down and colored. AND the monologue is Martin from my favourite BBC radio sitcom Cabin Pressure <3 

We had lovely Sarah Airriess - aka @tealin - as our teacher this time, and being a fangirl herself she had selected this as one of the clips we could choose… So of course I had to take it. 

(Also, I have rarely fangirled more than when she did an animation demo of Arthur from the show… *sigh*. It was amazing.)

Good News/Bad News: The Last 2D Animators at Disney are Doing Projection Mapping for Walt Disney World

The Good News: Legendary Disney animators Mark Henn (Tiana, Jasmine, etc.), Eric Goldberg (Genie, Phil, etc.), and Randy Haycock (adult Simba , young Hercules, etc.), are animating characters from Aladdin, The Little MermaidMoana, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, etc. USING THE CLASSIC, HAND-DRAWN METHOD for an upcoming Walt Disney World show, Happily Ever After, scheduled to debut May 12.

Besides the usual fireworks and pyrotechnics, Happily Ever After will feature the now de rigueur projection mapping on Cinderella’s Castle – only it will be done in glorious hand-drawn animation! What a wonderful way to keep kids aware of this now pretty-much-extinct Disney tradition!

The Bad News: Disney is wasting these legends on temporary theme park shows, when they could be using them to train a brand new generation of animators in the fine art of hand-drawn animation! Traditions like this MUST be passed down from one generation to the next, or else the intricacies and subtleties of the art form will be lost. Textbooks and video tutorials can only capture a fraction of the knowledge that these ‘old Masters’ have to share. It would be a shame if this knowledge died with them.
