Oh hi there, please allow Vegeta to blast you into oblivion.
Been a little quiet around here, and that's because I'm working on something but not ready to talk about it just yet.
In the mean time, I thought I'd share the above animation real quick - it was a little R&D I did last year trying to simulate the old school traditional anime look digitally. It was inspired by the original illustration from the manga.
As usual it was done in-between jobs, so I gave myself only four days to work on this. I started with my go to Animate (Flash), but switched to a trial version of Toon Boom for its really fast colouring tools. Then After Effects took in the passes for compositing. The outlines, colours, shadows and effects had to be exported separately to allow for chromatic aberration, smudges, noise and other effects to be applied.
You can watch a breakdown of the passes here. While I enjoyed making this, the amount of work for only 5 seconds was immense. Can you guys imagine doing a feature length animation like that solo?
