I have joined the UMD Games and Animation Group (GAG). (They are looking for a new name so that might change)
We have been working together to create an animation. This has been a great experience because each of us in the group has to ta take on a different job in order for this to get finished. Right now the animation that we are working on is a Digital animation, that has been story boarded and been put into an animatic.
My job is to illustrate the backgrounds and the characters so that the can be easily put into the video. We are using a program called Tuneboom, which is a fairly inexpensive program that acts as a light table that you can create you animation from. Because I am learning as I go I don't have much more information I can give you about it.
In future posts I will have examples of the illustrations as well as the Animatic.
