This tutorial is an update from my first tutorial. This time around I use Photoshop CC and delve into a few more techniques that I've learned while working in production.
Adobe Photoshop is a tool that a great number of creative minds are familiar and comfortable with. While it isnt software package that has been built with animation specifically in mind there it has huge potential as an animation tool. The ability to control an aesthetic within the software gives a very hands on feel to the process and endless possibilities for your end result. I hope that this tutorial will help bridge the gap between designer and animator, beginner and professional.
This is a quick look at some of the behind the scenes of the 2D traditional animation team that were involved in the making of the John Lewis Christmas advert - The Bear and The Hare. Produced by Blink Ink and Hornet Films.
