Made this little short short to test the water a bit with this idea/experiment with new techniques, you can find it in the link below as it fell off the front page.
A little additional notes about it
I made it as mainly an experiment when I began it, I wanted to have a nice brushed style to the drawings while still being decently animated. All the roughs were made in Flash CS3 which I exported over to Krita 3.3 to paint the colors. Because I wanted the brushed effect I had to use a thick brush which meand I couldnt really use a fill tool to color it, so everything was hand colored as if it were a yeolde cell animation! After that everything was compiled in HitFilm4 and boom finished results.
I certainly love the results I got from this but I would certainly have to consider some quicker ways to color everything in Krita (or use something other then Krita). Main issue was the paintbrush had a mixing kinda effect so the color wasnt always flat (random painty gaps in various places) so a better brush would certainly make life a little easier in that regard.
Unfortunatly it didnt make the top 5 this time, I think either it was too short or I just didnt plug it here harder. Plus it was uploaded on the same day as 5 other great animations/games! I will just have the next one better and longer!
