1. I'm working on Tindra Setter Fyr. Sometimes I don't know how to paint a certain texture, or what colours to use and what not. Then it's of such a big help to paint a quick, small scale sketch. This time I was about to paint a brick fireplace, sort of. But I didn't know how to paint the bricks in a way that both looked nice, but without drawing too much attention. So I made this sketch first. I think it's pretty nice. Now I feel much more confident in painting the real deal.

  2. In this episode of Animating For Life, I want to turn the attention to Toon Boom Harmony's functions called Image Switches and Shared Functions. In this example tutorial I'll be showing you how to solve common 2D depth sorting issues by clever use of Image Switches and Shared Functions - so that the animators don't have to get too technical when animating.

  3. Toon Boom Harmony can be tricky. And some features are great, but they require additional work to really stand out. Here's a little tutorial on how to first set up an arm for bending and animating with bones. Then how to solve the z sorting problems, that always arise in 2D animation.

  4. This is my first episode in a series of short videos about making professional 2D animation, in a small studio.
    In this series I'll be using Toon Boom Harmony, Toon Boom Storyboard Pro, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop and Lightroom for software. And I'll be using pencils, paper, japanese poster paint etc for the background. I'll also be touching upon topics like story telling, keeping animation work down and other related stuff.

    Please check back once in a while, to follow the ongoing work with my animated short Tindra Setter Fyr.

    cheers
