Hello everyone…and kudos to the synfig team.
This is the result of my first day of trying out synfigstudio (0.63.2 on Ubuntu 9.04–I know, Medieval Linux) to see how a first-year drawing student would handle animating their quick gesture studies. Turns out that this may be the best way to start on synfigstudio. I’ve even left in the pages un-color-corrected, to show that the tweening still works.
This is the first of a series of pre-viz animations for my upcoming web comic ‘Amorok’ on my website http://nuegua.geekopolis.ca.
I’m just finishing the first draft of the screenplay.
And now on to my first character, Amorok (actually an Inuit [Eskimo] legend, not just a Linux sound machine).
and a rough first draft of a running cycle. I haven’t firmed up the design of Amorok yet, so the cartoon is a bit jumpy.
and here’s a second try. This one is quite funny, because I drew the first cell as a cartoon (Contact Left), and then unconsciously drew the succeeding cells as muscular and Renaissance.
