Daily1 - Paperfall

I challenge myself to do one sketch every day. Learn more about it here!
<<First | <Previous | Next>

I have returned! Glory to the new daily sketches. Some of my watchers might remember that I already challenged myself to do daily sketches - and that I had to stop after 159 days. All of those old daily sketches are collected in this Journal entry. There are traditional pencil drawings, some things I tried out with my tablet and animations.

This is my submission to :icondreamers-welcome:'s monthly challenge. This month, the theme was paper and I have to admit, I was a bit inspired by the Stanley Parable. I'm not a gamer. But that one is still my favourite game. There are no notes falling down in the game, though.

Tell me what you think and what kind of thing you'd like to see in the future.

Hey, thanks for the comment! I hope I understand those questions correctly.
How do you do this?
Magic Sufficiently advanced technology. Well, after I had the idea, I started with the sheet of paper (one of the first frames on the top of the image). I used the airbrush tool with a small size to make the sketch. Then, I went from there and sketched the sheet over and over again, moving a bit from the last version. Towards the end, I sketched the stack so that I knew where the sheet would end up. Then, it was only a matter of moving the sheet fall down to the right position and trying to adjust its velocity and the perspective (in most of the animation, I didn't bother with perspective, which is great because it doesn't really matter in that case). And then, I had to sketch the sheet falling... upwards, so that I could have the sheet fall off frame down into the frame later on.
Finally, I traced the sketches with the brush tool (with about twice the size as the airbrush and smooth stroke settings). As a last touch, I added the blue shading.
Oh yeah, and ordering the frames correctly and checking what speed it should be displayed with and optimising...
What kind of app?
I use the GIMP as a desktop program. I've never had the opportunity to use it as a mobile app.

I hope this answers your questions. If not, I'm afraid you'll have to be a bit more specific. =)

Thank you!

Smooth? Maybe. Real? Hmmm... the good thing about a sheet of paper in mid-flight is that nobody cares about the sheet staying the same length. But yeah, as long as it looks good, I don't really care either. =D

No problem :D

Ahh I thought when it changed length that it just got further away from the (hypothetical) camera.

Dude, I know exactly how you feel! I don't know exactly how this got into my brain, but it reminds me of something that I must have forgotten somehow.
