@00:11Thank you :) And thank you for asking me for a tutorial, it's quite a compliment by itself :) Actually I was already asked to explain my process, so I think I will just write a walkthrough explanation with some videos and sketches (or links to them) and post it in my journal or maybe in a gallery if I figure out how to do this sufficiently. I don't know when this is going to happen, though, I'm quite busy at the moment, but I will do this when I will have enough free time.
Only please note that I am not a professional and the way I work is still evolving and I'm still looking for best way to do that.

(optimistic edit) Thank you, YouTube, for being here: [link] YOU HAVE TO CLICK IT (end of edit.)

(desperate edit) WHYY IS IT OUT OF SYNCH?! (end of edit.)

He is reading "The Colour of Magic" by Terry Pratchett. I wonder what Rincewind did.

Okay, you see, I wanted to animate lip sync for this guy: [link] , because I loved the idea of him having Jeremy Irons' voice (thank you so much, L16 :iconl16: :) ); and when I was looking for some clips I could use, I came across the scene from "The Colour of Magic", where Irons played Vetinari... I find this idea quite amusing, though I sense it might not be THAT funny for others.

Aaand it isn't really... entirely polished, but I won't be able to finish it anytime soon anyway, sigh.

Voice: Jeremy Irons, "The Colour of Magic" (c) Terry Pratchett, I think.

it does?
wait, do you mean that it does actually sound like "lipsync", or that it sounds like some sexual innuendo I did not intend?

...aaaand thank you :)

@00:11Could you possibly do a tutorial of an animation? I'm trying to do some amateur animations on flash and I'm getting lazy about drawing the skeletons before the actual flesh figures. There's a lot of things I need to learn. BTW I love the frame rate, and fluidity of the motions. Very cartoony yet lifelike. :)

@00:11This is so cool, you never siece to amaze me. plus his eyebrows are the coolest things in the world so much expression. I tried using gimp once but i couldn't figure out how to animate using it.

About the GIMP- I just draw frames on separate white layers using brush tool (for onion skinning I change layers' opacity) and then save each layer as JPG, and then put them together in other program.
I mean, I could simply export them to animated GIF directly from layers, without JPG phase... but I don't like GIF too much.

Thankyou, that helps i shall try it that way next time. i was having troubles with when i tried playing it as a gif, instead of playing each layer separately it would just add each layer over the top of the last until it turned into a scribbly mess. I shall try saving each layer separately :)

:iconhaffri:
haffri Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2009
@00:11Okay, here's whole saving process, step by step, to show what step it is exactly;

Save as => something.gif

"Export File" window: use "Save as Animation" option

"Save as GIF" window:
-tick "loop forever"
-specify delay between frames
-tick "use delay entered above for all frames
-frame disposal where unspecified: choose "one frame per layer (replace)" THIS IT THE ONE, I think.
-(i don't really know what other options are for :) )

And now it should work... but I'm still a little confused by all those options.
Also, I think you could specify the 'frame disposal' thing in the layer's name, but I don't know exactly how to do it. And this way it's faster than change each layer's name, one by one.

Seriously, I have no idea why that "combine" option is default. Why would anyone need that anyway?

Oh, I know what you mean; I don't really know why would anyone need such effect in gif :) I think to change that, when saving as GIF, you have to check "replace" box instead of "combine (?)" in the options window which pops up when saving. I'll check this and let you know.

@00:11The artwork and animation is great, but wtf is he saying? it just sounds like random grumbles with no actual words :\
Reply
:iconhaffri:
haffri Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2009
Thank you :)
And about what he is is saying:
If you mean the sound quality maiking it impossible to understand, I believe he is saying "Shame on you, Rincewind" (Rincewind is a character from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series, for more info read description);
If you mean it's out of sync, you can watch it on youtube: [link] ;
And if you mean the lips movement is not done properly and doesn't fit the rhythm of words (in the youtube version; sound is not right here, on DA, somehow), then... well, my bad. (if it's this one, please tell me, please)

no, the sync and movements were spot on to the sound, just that you can't make out the sound because it seems so muffled

I think you did an excellent job on your part of the work, it's just the audio track that's broken :aww:

@00:11it was out of sync a bit yeah, definitely better on youtube. Man it's surprising how much better youtube quality has gotten over the past year! did you animate this with a tablet by any chance?

:iconhaffri:
haffri Featured By Owner Aug 23, 2009
@00:11Yes, done entirely with tablet, in GIMP. I really wish I had a lightbox, but over the holidays it's out of reach for me.
It might be a part of Sean's evil plan to force me to use software, though.

so sean flies all the way over to poland just to stalk you and snatch any kind of physical tools and replaces it with copies of adobe and toonboom. you know he always had some kind of a sinister look in his eyes.

I should be getting a lightbox soon, but mainly more for trying out more inkwork and random comic book crap.

grr, can't find the link! It's A2 size, doesn't have a rotatiing disk on it but it's looks really nice! has little holders on the top of it for your equipment (pens, pencils etc.)

I'm pretty sure it was for about £40, need to find that link again! :(
