This is a drawing i made in toon boom studio:
I'm trying to begin my first serious animation and I'm experimenting with a few software. So far from what i've seen, you can't produce traditional type of sketches like those of disney or anime with vector graphics. It just looks too sharp? digital?
For example i wanted the shadows in this drawing to blend a bit more, and make the eyes a bit more detailed and glowy, like in anime.
Also the eraser and brush tool usually suck with this type of software (vector based), so it doesnt really have the smooth feeling of drawing.
I dont know if shadows are even possible in Toon boom studio , it really gets on my nerves when i try to do shadows with that software. I also tried tvpaint but didnt like it. Does anyone paint the line art in vectors and does his/her painting elsewhere?
From what i see most 2D software is made for cutout animation,but what i need is one for more traditional based animation, which is going to be hand drawn digitally with a tablet.
I really need to solve this fast so i can start concentrating on the art instead of the technology, it's just nerve breaking.:confused:
Here's another drawing i made in Toon Boom studio and i painted the shadows and eyes in Tvpaint.
I think its coming close but i don't seem to be able to composite my material in tv paint due to the lack of a 3d camera, so now i also need a composition software!:D Isnt there a raster based software that combines all this? I can't really afford to buy 3 software.:)
Ok i made a run cycle:D. Here's the link:
I used Tvpaint for animation and coloring, photoshop for a quick background, and i composited in Toon boom studio.
I'm a newbie so it aint much of an animation, so it was basically used for software experimenting. From what i can say , personally i can draw,animate and paint in Tvpaint a lot faster than toon boom studio and it was a lot more enjoyable drawing in tvpaint, although i find its animation layers a bit nerve breaking.
The thing is i have no idea how to composite a scene with multiple software, where a character interacts with the background, for example jumps on background elements while the camera is panning. How would that be composited in a software like toon boom or after effects?
