BABY: Background 2

By
I'm really keeping a watchful eye on photorealism this time around. I want people to easily see the work that went into piecing the BG together rather than putting on the illusion that it was just one whole pic that I could have easily have swiped from google images.

So much photoshop... so very little macaroni.

Just a place holder for where I'll eventually animate Ima.
DynamoTom's avatar
oo place holders already : D
Skaijo's avatar
I don't know, I just want to get each background done in order first. But I want to make sure the bg is sufficient so I animate a quick place holder over the path that I'd expect the animation to go through--then fix a camera to it (but it's a very jerky camera at this point with no transitions between scenes, it's just to test the bg) and then... that's it for now. As soon as most of the bg's are done, I'll start the next process of animating bodies.

ahhh sounds like you have a plan for it all how far are you bg wise or are you doing the background then the rough linetest then the next bg?

DynamoTom's avatar
it really looks like you have found your own thang now to make characters to match this new elliquent style : D and oh my already over tween 300 XD

Talking with you has made me want to try to do this a bit more professionally. I've sketched out a storyboard on sticky notes, and will complete all the BG's and place holders before I start the actual animation. I think that's how the pro's do it. :3 Forgive me for not asking your like.
DynamoTom's avatar
lol stickynote storyboards ad bg placeholders is ecatcly how ive done it during uni XD its a great way to visually plan it and get a firm grip on timing

for not asking me what?
Skaijo's avatar
For basic process and such. Photoshop questions. etc. I'm trying to get by this on my own and whenever I come to you I admit it's a bit overwhelming all the stuff I need to get familiar with.
DynamoTom's avatar
oh no dont worry about it i figured it all out on my own at my own pace so its probably the best you do it to at your own pace instead of rushing it

just one step at a time

a general holla every now and again would be cool though : D

^__^ I wanted to find my camera and fish eye lens i bought a long while ago so I can start taking pictures again. If I'm successful, I'll be taking landscape photos and submit them here. If you like any of them, and would like to use parts of any of them for bg in any flashes you make, I'm giving you (and you alone) writing permission to do so. I think it would be a great way to create exposure, and I'd like knowing I helped you! :D
Skaijo's avatar
I appreciate the permission and will be sure to let you know ahead of time before I use any of your stuff. I'm interested to see the environment you live in and how I could use that material or even make a request or two. :3
seapuppy's avatar
lol, your welcome, but don't get too excited. I do still need to find my camera first. ^___^

I like macaroni : B
Skaijo's avatar
Lol, that's going in a Layton animation one day! xD
Skaijo's avatar
I made some homemade shells n' cheese last night. I used two boxes of it and baked it afterwards in the oven just the way I liked it. But I got way too excited and ate about 80% of what I made in one sitting and geez, I nearly shat a lung.

I see we both share a great fondness of stuffing ourselves with far more macaroni than we should.
