Ghibli Test

This is footage from a documentary about the creation of Studio Ghibli's film, Princess Mononoke. During the process, a few inbetweeners took a test to be promoted to key frame animators. The scene they had to do was very difficult and the results were interesting.

To add to that, here's a video of Miyazaki himself animating a scene where the main character takes a tumble. The comments he makes are so interesting and he tries so many different approaches for a scene that's only about 1.5 seconds long.

Nicholas Was...

Finally got one storyboard finished! I started this a year ago when Neil Gaiman released the audio as a free download and suggested that anyone who wants to use it for something creative to go ahead and do so. It was a good way to practice storyboarding and doing some basic traditional animation in Flash. Any thoughts or comments are well appreciated! :D

Digital Portrait

I have been trying to figure out digital painting and I am finally feeling more confident. Perhaps now better color temperatures.... Any tips?
