Here it is! The making-of of this pretty woman!
It’s a bit crazy now with all the preparations for Christmas, but I look forward to showing you the backstage of this animation.
Everything started with a sketch I did in my sketchbook.
As you know now, I’m not used to drawing a human character. So when I have a little moment, I practice a bit.
When I finished this lady, I liked it right away!
I loved her expression, looking away, dreaming about her future.
I saw her instantly animate, kicking in the air. Maybe her hairs floating. I thought it could be really poetic.
Also, it’s been a while I haven’t done animation, It was a good moment!
Firstly, I scanned my draw and used it as a reference for my animation in Photoshop.
I could end there, but this time I wanted to push it further
I thought It would be nice to have a style more hand-painted. And actually, It’s something I didn’t try before!
I printed all the frames of the animation, coloured them with watercolour, re-scanned, and replaced them in my photoshop animation.
I had to put each frame in the exact position and kept in mind the order of the frames. This part of the work was a bit boring! Hahaha!
In the end, I didn’t use all the frames I painted. It looked too boiled. So I simply used them when the girl was moving. It’s less distracting.
And ta dah ! It works! The animation is done!
I hope you liked this mini making-of. I really enjoyed doing this animation, I will try to do it more often. Maybe It could be a resolution for next year! hahaha!
Let see! ;)
