Short LOZ Animation [PROCESS] by AmazingArtistYellow Short LOZ Animation [PROCESS] by AmazingArtistYellow
I get so many requests to make tutorials on animation.
I'm sorry guys! I can't upload tutorials because I'm a bad teacher and I'm still new to this stuff. The only thing I can provide you guys at the moment are processes of how I make my animation. ^^;

So, here's a short and simple animation of Sheik bowing her head (It really ain't that simple because of the perspective slightly changing as she bows her head)
This took a total of 3-4 hours to finish this 0.25 second animation (Excuse me! I don't have a tablet! :X).

As you can see, ANIMATION AIN'T THAT EASY!!!! But really, it ain't that hard either. If anything, it's just time-consuming (And frustrating at times if you're working with, I dunno, 20 frames or more).

STEPS:
-I draw a sketch of how the animation should start
-I trace over my sketch and begin drawing the other frames
-I clean/make minor edits to the lineart (In this case, I edit Sheik's eye to make it close as she bows her head)
-Add color to EVERY FRAME
-Draw a background and add it TO EVERY FRAME (I dunno, they're in a desert or something.....)
-Adjust the brightness of EVERY FRAME to match the background
-Adjust the colors of EVERY FRAME to somewhat match the background
-Add highlights to EVERY FRAME
-Adjust the highlights to make a glowing appearance for EVERY FRAME
-Add any extra characters necessary (In this case, Link) to EVERY FRAME (oh, and if the extra character/s are moving, the job gets a lot harder)
-Add a Gaussian blur to EVERY FRAME (because it looks nice)
-Add any other special effects if necessary to, say it with me, EVERY FRAME (in this case, I added a vertical linear blur to give that "special" lighting effect)

There's probably other better, much more easier ways to make animation *cough*3Dmodels*cough*, but if you make animations, or plan on doing animations frame-by-frame (Like I do), then I applaud you for your patience! :iconclapplz:

Programs used: Adobe Photoshop CS5 and Sony Movie Studio 12

I honestly thought the thumbnail when it said "Shift Colors" said "Shit Colors".
In the way of "Literally adding so many colors you're shitting them".
This is a good example for a noob like me, I applaud you sir Epic clap 
You're one of the many who don't get annoyed and aggravated that so many people ask you "How You Do Dat"
