I’ve completed a few more shots from my Naruto vs Sasuke animation and figured it was about time to post another little gif of some of what I’m doing!  This time, I decided to show some of my process, for those that’re interested…
As you can see above, I have 3 separate animations at different stages of the process.  Here’s a breakdown:
[1] I always start out with a scribble test to get the general idea of what I’m doing.  It’s ugly, it’s dirty, but it’s a very important first step!  You never want to start out straight in to detailed drawings with animation.  Make sure you’re happy with the motion first, then worry about good drawings.
[2] I then did up a naked mannequin rough to figure out what I’m doing with the body.  No details on the face or clothes yet, just want to make sure I have my general proportions and anatomy where I want them.  I also worked out a lot more of the motion.  I made tweaks in the final, but I’m setting things in stone here.
[3] Finally, I dress it up, tie it down.  If you look closely, different parts of Naruto’s body are different colors.  This is because I worked in passes.  In cases with this many moving parts, it’s best to focus on one thing at a time for the best motion.  First,  I started out with his clothes.  This allowed me to experiment with how I had the cloth flapping around in the wind without worrying about the rest of what’s going on.  After that, I worked out the hands and face.  Getting the volumes of the face right can be a bit tricky when turning it in space, but there’s a few tricks I might do another little tutorial gif on in the future. Finally, I did the hair then bandana in a similar fashion as the clothes.
Hope that’s helpful to some folks out there!  I’ll be posting more of my progress in the near future.  :)

Oh my god, how does this not have thousands of notes already?
Fantastic work! This is honestly some amazing animation (the likeness is spot on, and IT’S ANIMATED holy crap) and you are wonderful for showing us the process. Thank you so, so much!
