3.3K Milestone


4-frame Animation Loop


Thanks to the 130 people watching me at the time of this milestone! You're making me a stronger artist! :love:

This one is PURE Photoshop. I could have prettified it with After Effects, but I wanted the first PSD I shared to be self-contained.

Download it, rip it apart, and draw new stuff in it if you'd like.

It's only 4 frames, but man were they beastly!



Here's the Photoshop file








Made in Photoshop CS4 Extended
This Work is 100% Digital



How it was made...

Ruff Animation:

what file do you export it as to get that loop?

It's pretty much a small FLV file that I convert to a SWF and upload to dA. :nod:

The FLV was rendered out from After Effects at the time I made it, since Photoshop wasn't able to do that kind of rendering.

So much detail, so much dedication!
You're so my mentor now <3

Oh and one random question:
When you're busy animation, does your diet changef? I ask because whenever I start really putting time into mine, I start turning to junk food because I can't be bothered with putting time into anything else besides my animation. Then I wonder if anyone else does this too :(

It certainly took some patience, but it was fun to draw. :aww:

Yes. I have a tendency to eat big meals, but the size of my portions tend to drop when I'm working. My metabolism is really high, so I'm almost constantly hungry. I fight it off by preparing easy meals like stir frys, pastas, smoothies, oven-baked fish or turkey, pizza, and mexican foods. I do my best to avoid highly processed junk foods because they kill my concentration.

You're not alone. I often end up with burnt pizza and overcooked rice if I get too caught up in animating. :D

Good! It doesn't have much frames or complex animation, but very convincing, just like a real animation on tv!

wow this is a great resource! sorry for not seeing this earlier though. I've downloaded it and looked at everything and you have a lot of ideas and I agree, this one is the best! Although, I do think that the blurred red scarf and hair at the back looks a liiitle bit out of place, but I'm not sure whether it's because it's too much blurred or too less blurred. But on top of that, I really loved this, and I can't believe this is all for only 4 frames! This really helped me, thanks so much!

:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2010  Professional Filmographer
Ha haa! You're welcome! :D

The blurs don't work that well because they aren't real focal depth blurs. I could have made them using other software but chose to go the Photoshop route so others could see what's possible.

Good eye for picking them out and many thanks for sharing your thoughts! These files will get better because of them. :dance:

I see! Well as much as I want to see how it looks like with other softwares being used, I'd have to agree with you, because people might get lost if you did use other softwares. tehehe.

glad I could help you with your psd :) please continue doing cool artworks!
