The FISH King Take 2

And here's the second scene! It took nearly 5 hours to animate and really made me wish I had a camera and software that were MADE for STOPMOTION!

In order to see if I was on the right track with the movements, I would have to take some frames, name them individually and save them to a folder, then import them into my video editing software, align them together and then play them back. I pretty much did this for almost every frame!

Anyways, so I'm pretty happy with the result, I will still touch up some of the frames in photoshop where I've noticed some errors.

Also, I've added the Fish King's voice (I went back to my original sketches and turns out that he's not the Sea King, I guess that will be for another animation). I first recorded the voice that I wanted and then figured out which frames should have which mouth movements in them. I used to animate the lip sync first and then record the voices later, to which I would shorten/lengthen frames to fit, but this doesn't work anymore since I've been animating at 30fps.

  1. Hahaha. That's really awesome. I've played it over several times and it makes me laugh every time. It looks great too! The slog is worth it.

    MORE, MORE!!!!!
