Fish Riding by Qinni Fish Riding by Qinni
GIDDYUP =D~

Another scene from my short film.

Last teaser, I swear xD; I'll post the film up soon, I promise :D. You guys are going to LOVE the music. My composer was AWESOME and composed in the style of Joe Hisaishi (Miyazaki's composer yo :D). I love the music the most, hahaha;;;.


This scene was especially difficult to colour because she was straddling the fish but I needed the fish to be line-less while she had lines. Plus his tail goes in front of her while her legs goes in front of his body.

animated from scratch, at 12 frames a second.

Tools: Flipbook, Photoshop and Aftereffects for camera-move.

My other stuff:


edit:
Some people have been asking me how I'm animating, so here's the response I posted on Tumblr:

I first time out my animation in Digicel Flipbook, exported it as PNG sequence when I finally feel like I have it well timed-out. Then I load it into photoshop for clean-up and colour. Because photoshopís timing isnít very good, I then go to Adobe Aftereffects to put the animation together with the backgrounds I have already finished and also tinker with any possible post-production stuff I want to do, such as camera moves or muti-layered pans and any filters I want to put over, like glows and dust-effects, etc.

And thatís how I did my film :). Itís a little tedious, especially compared to if you just used flash, but I wanted to soft-shade my characters, and photoshop was the only program that let me animate in the way I wanted :).

Edit: full film here:
