I wanted to create a fun character driven animated intro for my YouTube channel. The idea was to have my character running through different phases of animation production.
I began the project by designing an avatar of myself.
Then I used Adobe Premiere to edit the song down into an intro format. I also decided to script out the movement to the beat of the music. Animating the text so I have an idea of the timing when animating my character in Clip Studio Paint. I've never done an animation in this way before but it actually worked out pretty well!
You can see how the text and the animation follow along with each other.
I have all the key poses and in-betweens finished. Now time to clean up and make the finishing touches on camera movements to create more seamless transitions.
Now that the lines are cleaned up, time to color and bring everything into After Effects where I can composite a background and other effects!
