awesome animation, the speedy sections look great and the lines style is super suited to the sketchyness.

and yep planning animation is another level of annoying. that's why I'm avoiding it despite the strong attraction. it's a trap!
plus legitimate fight choreography is another skill in itself. I would love to have that skill to imagine a ridiculously awesome fight and then spew it onto paper and make it real.

Animations look great!
I love how you try to experiment with new media - it's very inspiring and feels so fresh. It's like discovering new opportunities. Great stuff :)
I guess animation has it's own set of problems like manga and illustrartions do. It's a completely different world for me @.@.
Hope to see more :)

These are so neat! I love the little scenes of environment and characters together.

The third one is my favourite. Did you plan out the drawing, or do you just add in each elements as you see fit?
No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

Cheers Echo!

No planning at all. I just add elements. Because I'm no Kim Jung Gi I've taken inspiration from Knights of Sidonia's pointilistic linework so instead of working from a scribble I just put dots around my canvas and then try to feel out the image from there. It's real hit or miss and looks super dirty if it's a complicated scene, but I'm happy I'm able to depict what I wish at least.

as I said on the sketch survival as well, that's some really nice backgrounds you've got there. sketchy for sure but the concept is really strong and the details give so much life to the idea.
generally unless you are super skilled the first concept will look messy and dirty. that's almost the point - to feel out the idea.
man I need to get my backgrounds going now haha

Feeling out the idea is my modus operande all the way. I figured that out through scribbling. But at some point the chaos has got to be formed into something otherwise the eyes really don't like it. I've had amazing experiences feeling out something in MSPaint + Mouse but they just don't hold up on a basic level in terms of how the viewer enjoys them unfortunately haha.

And cheers. And yes my goal is to discover the stick figure for backgrounds so that I habitually draw backgrounds as much as I habitually draw a guy with a sword/gun. That'd be great



Color failure. I've been a fool. I know the way to get over my dissatisfaction and aversion to colour: Do a regimen haha. I'll see what number will satify me, but honestly all the theory in the world won't do anything if I don't just go for it and colour.

That isn't to say that I am not a proponent of black and white forever, mind you. I just think i'm about ready to get a foot through the door

Ahhh yes the stick figure for backgrounds. Would be awesome to know what that is for me.

great attempt at color!
The main issue I see is that your brush strokes are still visible, maybe try using a larger smudge brush or stronger smudge settings. You can always go over again to add more darker shades, and then smudge that just a little. The key idea is to create gradients which imply form a lot better than solid areas of cel-shading.
But it looks really nice all the same. Colour is amazing like that I think.

Haha I figured it out for myself apparently. Now all I've got to do is learn to reference certain building styles, otherwise I'll default to sci-fi because it's easier to make funky looking buildings than era-specific ones.

And yeah I noticed that too. Colour does add quite a bit of oomph though. Interesting.

i suppose colour is awesome because it makes a big jump towards realism because we don't actually see in black and white lines. so any colour, no matter how badly done, is automatically more realistic.

great application of your background method, I almost wouldn't know you had done that if you hadn't told me.

he's casting a shadow on the building? I'm not sure what I'm looking at there but the perspective feels strange.
otherwise nice.

Gaah! Mission failed. I guess I needed tone after all. He's in one of the buildings and it's his reflection on the glass haha. I pushed things a bit too much.

Colouring tests continue. Lasso tool is a nice friend.

Ahhhhhh that was my backup thought, it did cross my mind but there wasn't any hint of glass, either a light glint or the edges of the panes, so I wasn't sure.

Colour sketches looking fab! The lighter shadows make it look a bit more realistic. Nice colour schemes.

Those ships look so cool!! I love all the little details and shapes incorporated into it.
Also the panels look great too. Think I'd like to see more of that universe c:
