|06:11 pm - [Fanart}Hetalia - China - My first animated GIF!! :D|
Look, look! It's the first animated GIF image I've ever created :D Well actually, no, that's kind of a semi-lie. I've made one other animated GIF before, it's one of my Kazuki userpics, but that wasn't really fully done by me since I just took scans of Kazuki and made it into moving frames. This time I actually drew the pictures out frame by frame in Photoshop then linked it together in Adobe Image Ready.
Character of my experimentation is Wang Yao/China from Hetalia (how predictable XD). It's so rough and untidy, but I'm so proooooud, prouder then writing those 16-pg essays XD
Have to tidy up the lines, make the movement flow a little more smoothly, and add some colour, but I'm so excited I got this much done XD My final goal is to make one of those Hetalia MADs (basically a music video, don't know why it's called MADs in this fandom) using my own drawings, which is what motivated me to look up how to use Image Ready (although for the MAD since I have to add music I'll be using Adobe Premier most likely).
Total number of layers: 21
Total number of frames: 29
Total time spent: 6 hours
That is cool! I have used ImageReady too. ^^
The layers and frames get confusing so fast x__X I really need to start naming my layers, I'm having the hardest time trying to find the exact layer I want to edit when there's 20+ layers flying around.
Dude... that is amazing...
Whoah! It won't be long before you start making your own icons!!
Adobe Image Ready indeed gives many opportunities for image edition.
Well actually Photoshop gives the better options for editing images, but Imageready certainly makes it easy to animate them :D It's great that Adobe grouped those two products together, so if you install Photoshop you get Imageready installed too automatically.
<3 That's lovely~ =D
*_____________* MAD videos are amazing <3 <3 <3! Good luck with that!!!
I know! Some of the artists for the MADs are incredibly talented. I think with the amount of talent in this fandom across all the borders fans should bypass the censorship and cancellation of the anime and just make our own full-length Hetalia episodes XD
Agreed! I reckon fanmade episodes can't get much shippier than the original xDDD!
