Software used: Toon Boom Harmony, Photoshop and After Effects. This is a piece I as a commission, I received a basic description of the character, time of day and the mood they wanted. I worked closely with the client to achieve this final look and make sure they got a product they were happy with. Overall, this was a very fun project to work on and I learned a lot about communication and how composition can really enhance the look of animation.
These are two of the first trials I sent to the client for feedback. I received several notes on how to enhance the atmosphere and character design geared more towards what they wanted. Every iteration built from a previous one until we achieved the final look.
These are several screenshots and videos detailing the process of getting to the final look. Like in all of my other projects, compositing in After Effects is the most important part, and in these process clips you will get to see how the base animation and background illustration are enhanced completely when put through AE, and effects are added.
