Title: SkillShare – Create A Motion Comic Part 1 & 2
Create A Motion Comic Pt 1: Adobe Photoshop
Bring comic panels to life in this class covering Motion Comics! We’ll be mostly using Adobe Photoshop to animate public domain comics from the 1950s Golden Age; we’ll also cover a bit of Adobe After Effects for more precise animation techniques.
Create A Motion Comic Pt 2: Adobe Character Animator
Bring comic panels to life in this class covering Motion Comics! In this section, we’ll be using Adobe Character Animator to animate the faces and mouths of comic characters using motion capture technology. This gives us actual fully animated talking heads with physics like swinging hair and blinking eyes, all controlled by our own facial movements and lip synced sounds.
We’ll also cover designing our Character Animator puppets in Photoshop and bringing the scene into After Effects!
If you haven’t seen Pt. 1 of “Creating Motion Comics” I highly encourage you to check it out as it establishes what motion comics are, why they are a great animation alternative, and how to put together frame animation in Photoshop.
