I’m so excited to share this right now. It’s been a pretty intense week! I found out I was a finalist in AgIdeas Newstar competition, I made the final shortlist for Dream Works - Designing Dreams Studio, and a cartoon I worked on with my friends aired in America! You can see a shot I did in my reel.
My reel includes work I did for The Australian red Cross, The Beards, Comedy Central and of course many a loopdeloop!
A super huge mega thanks to everyone who has given me lovely words of support and encouragement. It really means a lot to know people actually care about the silly things I do. Anyway, that’s enough feels for this post! I hope you enjoy watching my reel
Pop on over to my new Tumblr to follow my animation happenings!
I changed the name of this blog to lisa-vertudaches365 to avoid confusion with my new blog.
It seems that someone snapped up my old URL from this blog pretty fast. Which is totally weird, and a little confronting because it’s my name! (yes, welcome to the internet I guess…)
I’m hoping it will eventually go away. It’s just a spammy, nonsense blog, so definitely don’t follow it.
If you’d like to keep following my illustrations, I now post from this blog:
Well to start off, if you’re new to animating in photoshop, here is an excellent tutorial by Alex Grigg: http://www.alexgrigg.com/Photoshop-Animation-Techniques
I don’t really know of any tutorials explaining that particular thing, but it’s easy to do, so i’ll try and explain it :P
What I do to get that boil effect for type is trace over a font with the brush tool, 4 times or 5 times on separate layers, and loop it throughout the animation. It’s good to try and trace the type as accurately as possible so the jitter isn’t too severe, and it will still be nice, smooth and legible.
I hope this helps, I’m not the best at explaining my techniques :)
Happy animating :D
