The First Steps
Ex. I went over doing a music video for a song, different fairytales and then settled on doing salt fairies which was something I had the idea of before but had just done sketches of.
2. Making a storyboard or coming up with what your subject will be doing.
Ex. I thought about doing a snow fight, them in class and I didn't know how much I could get either of those done so I ended up doing an intro of a TV show kind of thing.
3. Find out how you are going to draw each part of your animation.
Ex. I drew out the outline of the animation and then sketched where I wanted the fairies to go.
4. Start your animation.
What did I do to make an animation?
This is one of the drawings I did of the first fairy to see what details the fairy might have in the animation. This is a lot more in depth than the fairy in the animation because of how many times I knew I'd have to draw it. So the fairy in the animation is much more simplified.
This picture was really just a rough drawing of what colors I wanted the fairies to be.
These are some other sketches I did in the beginning to see what the fairies would look like. Then I also made a salt fairies logo which I put in the animation. So the animation would be something like an intro to a TV show. Then in the picture you can also see how I sketched out what routes the fairies would take.
