I know some of you will have seen these before from my other blog, but I wanted to enthuse about it here as well.
For those that are unaware, I draw a stickman comic based on the 40K universe characters. I have done so for nearly three years now and I am using the characters to teach myself animation. It has been really fun to do so!
I swapped programs from Plastic Animation Paper to Pencil2D as I wanted to use software that had a choice of more than two colours. PAP4 was a great introductory program that taught me the basics, and had some really well written tutorials with it. I managed to create these without too much difficulty or frustration on my part:
The limitations of PAP4 quickly became clear however, and without a zoom feature it was tricky. Swapping programs enabled me to create pictures with colour, and thast helps define some of the character’s features. My first attempt was the Ork Gaak bombing a house. I am so pleased with the results and I am really looking forward to creating more animations, that are a bit longer as well!
Like my work? Consider being my patron – These animations and comics can take a long time to create and I don’t get paid for it at all. If you want to support me, consider being my patron on patreon. It’s $2 a month and I will animate you with some of the cast.
