For a while I've been struggling with finding a program I could easily draw with. I like the curves and smoothing flash does, but there's no flexibilty with brush size. Photoshop has brush size but no smoothing as far as I knew. Illustrator isn't all that free-draw friendly, and Toon Boom has a strange set for the brush look (essentials at least).
While in a 3-D class i took for the sake of review, I saw an amazing looking animation, and heard it was Clip Studio Paint. A few days later there was a 63% off sale. What luck!
I'm not sure if I will be focusing on digital paint, or what exactly my next focus will be, but if I ever plan on doing a digital drawing, Clip Studio Paint is what I'm using.
They even have cool backgrounds!
This program is more so for manga artists it seems, but I like flexibilty in my drawings, and I do draw from time to time. I just wouldn't as much because of frustration with the way lines would look. Again, depending on what I focus on, we might see more...
My hair's not that spiky. If you're gonna do a cartoon, you gotta exaggerate!
Evening everyone. It surprises me time and time again when my mind wanders into thinking about posting here, and how it always tends to be about a month since the last one. Is it an internal clock of sorts? A force of habit? Who knows.
The daily 3-D post slowly became a every 2 days, and then longer, as my attention streached from a piece every now and then to working on a project for a 3-D class. As a result I have finished a small 3-D short, the video you see above. Just some interacting in the desk, making a shape come alive. It's posted on the 3-D tab as well.
I now have an un-ani-related part time job, so my animation efforts will be limited to projects, random fancies I might have (hey you never know [Clip Studio Paint I'm looking at you]) and applying to career based things while I make some money on the side. I held off on non-ani-related working for a while because I wanted to focus on applying to ani jobs and improving my portfolio. However, I feel as though I hit a wall and won't necessarily get better without more experience, and that comes from applying and your own projects. Also since I've got a handle on the cover letter/resume writing I can now do both without feeling I'm neglecting one or the other. And I need money, man. Money, money, money.
Finished my YGO reanimate shots, so I'm on the list! Check it out!
It's possible that I might do more, if I feel like I have the time and energy. At this point they only need more second-length shots, but still, being a part of a group effort is a great thing!
And the ol' Overwatch of course. All work and no play...
