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.

A short I made to assist my pal Benjy with a marriage proposal to his girlfriend (*UPDATE* now wife to be).
Benjy initially approached me to produce a 5 second proposal sequence (for my convenience), as he knew I'd be doing this between commercial work, but I felt 5 seconds wouldn't justify or convey enough the significance of what he was about to do. I added an extra 15 seconds to give the short a little more narrative & emotion.
His brief was to create something with a classic hollywood romance musical-type feel. He also specifically requested a look inspired by Disney's award winning short, "Paperman", as his fiance (Victoria), really loved the film... Needless to say, I couldn't produce anything to that standard on my own & with the little time I had, but here's what I came up with in roughly 3 days.
Process-wise, I worked the timing & the rough animation in Flash (CS3), the cleanup in Photoshop (CS5) & the finish in After Effects for the diffusion & film grain. It was the first time I'd animated anything of my own in PS & I really enjoyed it (aside from a few annoyances with video layers vs reg layered frames). I plan on doing more of my future work using this same process.

This is the eleventh animation from my ongoing illustration project 'Handymartian's Illustrated Aliens'. You can follow the progress of this project at illustratedaliens.tumblr.com/ where I am uploading a new alien illustration every day, building up to a monthly illustration of their planet. This planet was created during November 2013.
