Here is a sneak preview of a scene with the Supreme Commander Kutuzov from the 1812 animation. It’s using the sketches done by a friend, Naomi Allen, and using Adobe Photoshop and After Effects.
The sketches I edited by filling in the spaces with a loose paintbucket tool which gives a nice effect, pretty similar to my animation from last year. I like the effect and I think it looks really nice. I’ve also included the film effect I’ll be using in this video; it, along with some desaturaisation, gives the sense of an old film, a documentary film in fact, which should add to the experience of the animation.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy, please do send some comments.
I have been blessed to have met a lovely girl called Naomi this year and she is studying Fine Art. Perfect opportunity for some collaboration I think!
She is going to be sketching the main figures for my 1812 animation which I will be doing some small editing (colouring and layering) to and animating to fit into the scenes. Exciting! Here are a couple of examples of her sketches and in the near future there will be an example of how they are to be used…
