We wanted to share a step by step break down of a scene I animated for “Heavenly Escorts.” Starting with the clip at the top, here are the break downs:
1)Rough animation. Here, I’ve worked out the animation, drawing rough lines.
2)Cleanup. Now that the animation is approved, I trace the rough animation with nice, clean lines and appropriate colors.
3)Color. With the lines drawn, I can fill in the spaces with flame colors.
4)Final Composite. 07 brings my animation into a compositing program, where he adds his final painted background for this shot as well as adding cool effects like glow to the fire!
I should add that I watched a lot of “Outlaw Star” for inspiration!!
This shot was a great team effort, and was so much fun for me to work on!
