There are many different ways of creating animations. But today I am going to write about how I make hand-drawn style 2D animations.
Most of my animations are digitally created although I make storyboards and sketches on my drawing book. I used to use adobe illustrator to create vector objects for my animations. But as I have created different animations and come across diverse creative animations on social media channels, I have been more attracted to hand drawn animations.
I like the imperfect zigzaggy lines and shapes that can only be created by human hands. Since then I started creating more objects with my hands and photoshop; Personally, I think, photoshop has broader brush options than illustrator.
The first thing I saw this morning was the world covered in snow.
(Well, I checked my phone to turn off alarms and see notifications, but it doesn't count >o<)
It was lovely and beautiful.
Imagine the first thing you see in the morning is trees and streets covered in snow.
Also, it was not even December yet. It was November so this was a big surprise.
This was a truly lovely Saturday morning so I decided to draw something to remember this moment.
(That's how I normally get inspired to make my illustrations and animations. If I see something I like and want to remember it, I try to document the moment in terms of drawing or animation.)
I drew this on Procreate by using my iPad Pro 10.5" and apple pencil.
