Some screenshots of the ball & string task this week. It’s my first time using tv paint and I’m really liking it!
I started off with the ball and string simple animation, which honestly took much longer than I expected, just getting into the swing of a new programme. I scribbled a quick vague silhouette of my fox character using the ball as his rear, before going back over it on another layer in blue line and tiding up/adjusting his shape and features. Then I coloured him in (there were too many brush options not to try it). I wanted him to be pretty bristly and brush-like so I’m happy with his final texture.
Things I learned: I will save a lot of time by having a clear clarified design of a character planned out before jumping into animating. I only had a vague idea going in and ended up spending most of my time working on figuring out how the fox would look with each movement and going back and correcting myself with every change.
