sketchbook/news/randoms from a London animator. more work at vidavega.com
Here is the short short animation I made to illustrate a tutorial for the Feb 2011 Digital Arts - and what do you know it's a greyhound.
The tutorial focuses on how I use Photoshop/After Effects to composite and matte my hand-drawn animation and the few shortcuts I've found to alleviate the tedium of painting and editing things frame by frame... no getting away from the drawing aspect though (fun fact: there are 34 drawings per 3 layers in this barely 5 second clip- that's 102 in total).
