This is an animation for my old classmates all meet together in the Philippines. The scene takes place in the Philippines where my old childhood friend and classmate lives name E.J. or Ernest.

Ernest is the 3rd Person who I admire and get inspired with my art. Without him, I will even like art. I use to challenge him when we we're young. I remember back in 1996 we both fight because of Doraemon color between blue and green. Hahah I was wrong cause my TV that time is crap and I only thought it was green. Right now we are fighting again on Miku's hair color hahah xDD but yeah, unlike when we we're young, we're mature and that argument is just normal for a friend. The ending video is approxiamate 20 Minutes long

I know in anime, profile shots of characters are used often, however, it's not a good idea, as the profile is not a strong angle, rather use front, or 3/4 views (3/4 are the way to go)

I can see you put a lot of work into this, and that's great. :)

Just remember, camera moves should be motivated. the one that stands out the most, is when it weirdly tracks onto the painting, a straight zoom/track onto it, would have been nicer.

as for when your characters move or turn, the head leads the body. so have the head start turning about 2 frames before the body starts (that's if you're animating on 25fps) also, it's nice to have some secondary motion as the character settles, either hair swaying a bit before coming to a stand still, or even arms. it makes the movement seem less static.

and one last tip, when a head turns, it's nice to have it dip a bit, and have the character blink during the turn.

but, seeing as though this is all anime and what not, i think you did a nice job mimicking the style.

nice going!

I tween it with additional 3 frame not 2 and the cycle is around 12 FPS. It's not an action movie and not only that, the scene is just starting, later angles will be viewed. Not all movies or videos are dependent of angle. In fact, I can make fair flat animation same with family guy with a lock camera angle.

Camera moves are often for actions but to simplify the animation, various camera scenes are use and not all movement required. Also, this is not a studio work but an individual work and putting more frames will take more time.

Not all head turns leads the body as you stated would be nice. Some head turns doesn't require body movement. Her body turn is way lag because of 12FPS but I lock my animation to 12 since most Anime are around 15 or 18 FPS.

Also, that depends and only your opinion I believe, not all humans blink when they do a head turn. I could say it's not at all fact but thanks for the tip though.

Also thanks for your criticism, I don't need one I'll let you have one. If you want, you can check my other animation but no criticism needed from those. Thanks.

this was not criticism my dear. not at all. I am an animator, I thought I would give you some advice/tips. but you don't need to take it.

believe it or not, I do actually know what I'm talking about.

and as for blinking while turning a head, go read some disney blogs.

It's a criticism dear if you are giving advice or tips to a work by pointing out significant errors that can be corrected. Also even as an animator you are, different people have different styles and I don't want styles on base. I want originality that came from what I learn. That's why we're paying thousands of money for college careers. Also, thank you again for the advice or tips. As a fellow animator yourself, I respect advice and tips.

You may know what you're talking about but you explained it in a different way for me not to depict it right. It's on your own interpretation my dear but I kinda got your point somehow.

Also, I don't base on disney or western animation. I base on Japanese animation style anime since I'm Asian, I rather use my fellow styles. Western Animations like Disney have their own different ways of animation, same with Ben10 from cartoon network. You maybe an animator but you should know that not all animations are the same and not all supposed to be realistic when it's toons. 3D can get criticism for reality but I don't think comparing it on traditional frame by frame is going to make it better. Unless you have tons of members that animate for you, I can consider that animating frames don't really bother me since there are lots of work per scene.

Also thanks for the information and tips you given me. I maybe be a person who probably thinks high of myself but I listen to my fellow advices and tips and that's how I boost my confidence to improve. I hope you become a legendary animation yourself but I will stick with my own style like most people say, stick with it!

It's made using Anime Studio Pro 7 and Toon Boom Animate Pro. It was converted to flash using a software for deviantart view. Anime Studio is legit for animation and can get you addicted if you try!

really? wow I should try! :D :la: I've used Toon Boom before...only to make a rolling ball lol XD
can I ask something? What media do you use to draw the character and background? Do you draw it in Toon Boom/Anime Studio? cz it'd be difficult isn't it? And I wonder if you should make every character in Vector drawing...? O.O"

RJAce1014 Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
On Toon Boom, you can choose to draw animated characters but use Photoshop for BG's since BG's needs to be detailed. If you use anime studio pro, you might wanna use Photoshop or Paint Tool Sai to draw everything. Remember that animation, you don't need lots of shadowing detail on your character. Animation requires smoother in lesser detail but make the focus detail. That's what I learned from animation, the more detail it has, the more time it gets, that's why they use 3D for detailed animation instead since 2D can be slow.

Oh yeah, vector is the most useful tool in animation since you can edit it in various ways, it actually depends on how you use tools.

I see. Do you separate some of the body parts of a character? A teacher told me that you need to separate them. Like blinking eyes or moving arms. In some cartoon, it looks obvious. But I don't know about anime style because most of them don't look like anything being separated from the main body. ">_>

oh, I'll go right away to your next animation. x3

RJAce1014 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Well it depends. Some animators use that idea for fast animation process and some don't use it at all. For the body parts, it's called rigging with bones. You add bones to animate your model and make it like a puppet. Your teacher is talking about that, bone rigging. It's really fast to animate using that way instead of frame by frame.

Slypht Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh, so it's not every animation use bones-rigging method. And it's usually vector-based animation to use that, is it?

I guess you yourself is using frame by frame for this animation...am I right?

Oh, thank you so much, by the way! I really want to try animation but that's not even my major in university "orz
So your words are very helpful! :love:
I'm such a newbie and I ask too many questions...lol

RJAce1014 Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2012  Hobbyist Filmographer
Yeah, frame by frame is commonly use. But if you're referring to layers, of course you have to separate background layer to the model or character layer before frame by frame.

I'm using frame by frame with layers and combinations of Rigging. The cars that you saw is rigged with bones so I could move them smoothly. If I frame by frame a car, it will cause an idle movement making the animation crappy so you need to also use layer movements.

Also, I have a recommended software for you, just for hobbyist. Use Anime Studio debut for beginners and Anime Studio Pro for advance users. They use Bone-Rigging Method. You can google it to see the features and I'm glad to help you with it. If you are an animator independently like me or by a team (I have a team of animators too) We use Toon Boom Animate Pro. It's pricey and going to hurt your waller big time but it's useful for animation of series since animation is hard alone and without any good software that makes the production fast. So that's my recommendations.

It's okay to ask me questions. I'll follow up all things I know since I'm an artist who want to help others as well. Don't be shy to ask anything. In case of that, I also want to invite you to the group :iconrjace1014-fanclub:

Yep xD That's how I animate some of my hentai videos. Hentai are much easier since when the girl is doing her thing to the guy, it's pretty much lock in that scene with repeated animation in a various scene and camera views. You can make 1 Min just BJ haha you know what I mean xDD and it's pretty tight xDD. I use anime studio pro 7 so you might wanna try it xD

It won't be boring if camera angle and scene changes (Fact in all anime to keep their conversation long) Also with those screaming, it makes sex in the different level xDD
Yeah you should! I'll teach you how to use the software if you get one. You will get addicted if you start since seeing your artwork moves after long hours of coloring, you will be like WTF AMAZING xD

Oh yeah! I forgot! xDD I'll make Hentai and Ecchi folder now!
