The relaxed, semi-cupped hand: as an artist, you will draw this a billion, zillion times. Print these out for practice and reference.
(EDIT: No, this is not a post about crotches & butts, but you’ll need to know how to draw those, too, if you’re drawing hands relaxed at one’s sides. Note that the big thumb knuckle generally falls at crotch-height. Note also that the palm rarely faces the thigh directly: the palm-side of a relaxed hand tends to angle *slightly* toward the back; the knuckle-side angles slightly forward. This reverses as the hands swing behind the walking figure. For more tips, visit me on Twitter: @Hamm_Tips)
the software is similar to emote/emofuri, a little more complicated though, with modeling, texture maps and set up is different, but at least it’s in English! with an extensive how to manual and dozens of sample models to play around with
there’s free version you can download
I picked up this program almost instantly, after struggling with emofuri all day (T^T I’ll try again another time), I really just wanna jump into this style of animating
Hey guys, you wanted one, so I came up with one :)
There are 3 things which are very important for high quality gifs.
1. The download
2. The sharpening
3. The coloring
1. Let’s start with the download.
I prefer torrents, because they are fast and they have almost every anime. Basically I download them here. Just type in the name of the anime you’d like to gif. It will show you a long list with different downloads. Every link which are offering you 360p or 480p downloads.. you can push them aside. Search for the ones with 720p quality or better 1080p. I know it may took long, up to 2 days to download them, but it’s worth! It’s such a pain to gif with low quality frames, because it looks so weird and they’re not as good as the high quality ones.
