This is from way back in 2012! I accidentally deleted it while using the mass editor so I’m reuploading it, haha…

Seoul, South Korea 2014
A selection of images from a recent vacation to South Korea with my friends. We departed exactly the day the ferry boat sank which explains the eerie silence we encountered at the airport.
Nonetheless, Seoul was a pleasure to explore, such a navigable city brimming with art and a vibrant youth culture. We stayed at the Yellow Submarine Guesthouse in Hongdae and spent most of our days eating glorious Korean meat and appreciating the impressive coffee their cafes had to offer. In a word, Seoul is inspiring. We hope to come back soon (also to see our beloved boybands <3 )
The next photoset would probably be my photos from our experience at the airport while waiting for the arrival of a KPop boyband. Fan culture is immensely, immensely fascinating, being a fangirl myself.
The whole film took me altogether about 5 grueling months (usually 10-12hours a day) to do. I often felt my butt was going to grow into the chair I usually sat at.
Please note that this was simply my way of doing my film to achieve the soft-shaded style I wanted; there are many other ways of doing this and some are a lot faster with different results~! :)
- My film on DeviantArt | My film on Vimeo
- My film gifs on Tumblr
- You can see my storyboard animatic here (although the original had music, but like I mentioned, my placeholder music was by Joe Hisaishi, you know, Miyazaki’s composer, so it’s not really legal to upload it).
This tut differs a bit from my dA version, because tumblr lets me put the combination of gifs and jpegs :D.
Here’s a book that will really help you start animating:
here’s some books that are good for composition, storytelling and colours:
- Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation
- The Art of Pixar: The Complete Color Scripts and Select Art from 25 Years of Animation
- Prepare to Board! Creating Story and Characters for Animated Features and Shorts
I hope these helped
I ask that no one removes the credit or source for this tutorial/guide please. thanks :)
And this is a keeper! No doubt about that! :)
I’m just gonna put this one on standby
for when I start my senior film!
