My goodness, I thought I had my message inbox under control..
Thanks everybody for the kind words, watches and favs.
I get asked questions about animation but seeing as alota them are kinda similar
I thought I'd just put it in my journal as a FAQ
What software do you use to animate with?
I use Toonboom animate. Though I'm still trying to figure out how to use it properly..
So far all i use is the timeline and draw stuff in!
It looks like it has some neat functions. I wanna learn how to use Flash too.
Are you going to school for animation? or self taught?
Just learnin by myself. Well the internet is my teacher!
WHAT WOULD WE DO WITHOUT THE INTERNETS
The stuff in my gallery is mostly me trying and experimenting.
I'd like to go to an animation school to see what it's like however.
(and work in the animation industry!)
Might have to travel outside of New Zealand for that.
Y'all so far away!
How long does it take you to animate something?
I dunno, there's many varying factors.
How many people in a scene, effects, and how complex the movement or camera angles are.
That recent Korra one I did took about 3 and abit days?
I didn't do any cleanup, so it might have taken abit longer if I had done it
Do you have any advice/tips for beginners?
Oh man, I always feel abit weird giving advice to people.
I'm still kinda n00b. There's a ton of awesome artists out there!
I suppose if I had any advice,
#1 Work on your fundamentals of painting/drawing first.
it makes it much easier down the line and you can focus on actually animating and
making something move!
#2 Work hard!
Need alota pencil mileage.
If you had a more specific question or any other questions, you can ask away
and I'll try to answer it to the best of my ability!
Or you can shout random things at me on here or twitter.
Yay gifclub! [link]
