I know, it'll be money and work, but I am totally interested
good luck on that you may need several years of art practice first in anime, second in animations.
after you may need voice actor...the software who can handle such large video works.
Anime productions are not really something who can be made alone and without money honestly.
Studio Ghibli released their animation software free to the public. But yes, art knowledge and months to years worth of patience, likely.
I dunno. Ask the guy that made a really awesome Star Fox episode what he did.
You could also ask this guy:
But seriously, why don't you start by making simple flash animations to see how you like it?
there's smith micro's anime studio. it's at version 11 now.
check out these books - How to Draw Manga Vol. 26: Making Anime and How to Draw Manga Vol. 37: Macromedia Flash Techniques. Though vol 37 is made for flash, the techniques carry over when you use anime studio.
Hope this helps!
I have Anime Studio, and plan to use it. I have the storyboards done, and now I need to do some sketching...... dayum
I think that it's really cool that you have aspirations--that's how people learn to do things, regardless of their project's success.
An actual anime, even a very short one in the gravity falls example above, take a LOT of time to do. That clip up there was storyboarded, rough animated, the backgrounds had to be painted, the animation had to be cleaned up, the colors needed to be added, effects and everything had to be composited. Hours and hours and hours of work. Hard work. It's good to have big dreams, but start off small first. And don't have any illusions about it! Even a single episode of an anime takes months of labor from a much bigger group of people.
I don't know your current skill level at any of the above-mentioned tasks or how extensive the project you had in mind, and I don't really believe in discouraging people from aiming high so long as they know what they're getting into, so good luck! I know for a fact I would never have learned how to animate had I not kept trying (and oftentimes failing haha) at my own projects. It's all part of the progression.
I'm about in the middle in skill. Not a idiot but not a pro. I am working on the second concept storyboard, and working on character's personality's
Have you ever animated before?
A couple of times, I pretty sure I threw out anything I had though
EDIT! I Plan to use either MMD or Anime Studio, or maybe animate both and see how I like it. (A lot more crediting for MMD, lol)
What about visual novels instead, and animating those characters through the Live2D engine?
It's also a lot of work, but at least it's a realistic kind of project, instead of a full one-man-team anime project.
as a graphic major please dont over do yourself. start with something small. simple. then work yourself up from there.
drawing anime frame by frame is a lot of work. dont take sort cuts or it will come out crap. rushing on projects isn't good ether. do it in moderation. like say.. work around ten frame a day. that would give you 70 frames a week. that way your not over burding yourself and still get something done. it takes 100s of frames just for a 1 minute animation.
for a 1 hour sketch. your looking at over 600 hand drawn frames. not including how detail you want them to be.
that is excellent advice. check barns and noble. they have wonderful animation books.
I'm working on one! (Well, I've been pretty dayum lazy lately,)
*smiles* you welcome ^^
Celianna that is amazing, I can't wait to see what comes of it.
i would love to use ToonBoom as im pretty good with drawing and that rigging tool looks nice but right now 400$ out of my price range. maybe i can get i on sale later on
Meh, I have access to Anime Studio, MMD, and Krita.. I'll choose one
If your interested, there is a fanime community on tumblr. They arnt proffesional but many of them are working to make their own animes.
However they call it fanime because alot of it is fan-anime so many of them take direct inspiration from specific anime series.
Fanime- not the convention
I have many inspirations... Not just one... I'd rather be alone anyway
