My dear friend, today I want to share with you my animation works. This animation is a teaching video I make for a well-known preschool publication.   The theme is to teach children to learn the numbers from 1 to 10.

今天想跟大家分享一下我的動畫作品,這支動畫是巧X智的教學影片,主題是教小朋友學習1~10的數字。

Outline of the animation 大綱

This collection was published in December, so the content of the animation is based on Christmas. The protagonist is the Christmas genie. The story is about the genie looks for his hats and gift bag from many hats and bags. Kids will learn to count 1 to 10 from the story.

The character design is completed in Illustrator, the material is reinforced in Photoshop, and the final movement is finished in After Effect.

 

這集出版的時候是12月,所以動畫的內容就以聖誕節為背景,主角是聖誕精靈,藉著小精靈在眾多帽子及袋子中尋找自己的帽子和禮物袋,教小孩子從1數到10。

造型設計的部分是在Illustrator完成,在Photoshop加強材質,最後動作是在After Effect完成。

Storyboard of the animation 動畫腳本

Let’s see the storyboard which describes the layout, camera movement, and sound effect.

以下是動畫腳本,敘述了畫面內容、鏡頭運用、以及旁白音效

Character Design of the animation 角色造型

The first step is the character and scene design. The hats and bags are photos of real objects. In order to integrate these elements into the cartoon scene, the scene and the elf must also have obvious textures.

The above genie is the draft. I apply the paper texture to his skin, and the clothes and hat are changed into the wool texture. In addition, the customer hopes that the genie looks more lovely, so I change his eyes to be larger and watery feeling.

The elks are a bit like dogs because the customer requests the elks looks cuter, and finally changed to a dog-like shape so that the children will feel more cordial.

When I draw a character, I will separate the limbs which need to move later, so the character can walk and raise hands in the animation.

一開始第一步就是造型及場景設計,因為帽子與袋子是實拍,所以客戶要求這些元素放在場景中必須看起來不突兀,尤其是主角聖誕小精靈也要配合有明顯的材質。

上面那張精靈是造型的初稿,材質感覺不夠明顯,於是把皮膚的部分把加強了紙的質感,衣服帽子改成毛線的質感。另外客戶希望精靈的造型更可愛,所以把眼睛改成比較大並且有水汪汪的感覺。

麋鹿的造型有點像狗,因為是小朋友要看的影片,所以客戶要求要比較可愛,最後改成類似狗的造型,這樣小朋友會覺得比較親切。

畫角色的時候,就要把四肢和任何需要有動作的部分分開,這樣之後才能有走路舉手等動作。

Scene Design of the animation 場景設計

The main scene is the scene at home with a Christmas atmosphere. So I put a fireplace to create a warm feeling, and decorate the wall with some Christmas elements. The most important, the Christmas tree is indispensable for Christmas.

The first one is the draft of the indoor background. The customer wants to have a warmer feeling, so the door is changed into a wooden door, the fireplace is lit up, the painting on the wall is replaced with a lovely Christmas painting, and the Christmas decoration is more colorful and lively. I draw an outdoor view so that the outdoor scene will not be too monotonous when the door is opened.

主要場景是家中場景,要有聖誕的氣氛。所以我放了一個壁爐製造溫暖的感覺,牆上做了一些聖誕布置,更重要的是聖誕節不可缺少的聖誕樹。

第一張是室內背景的初稿,客戶希望有更溫暖的感覺,所以門改成木門,壁爐點上火,牆壁上的畫換成可愛的聖誕畫,聖誕布置裝飾得更熱鬧。腳本中需要打開門,所以畫了一張戶外的景,門打開時門外才不會太單調。

Animation Process 動畫製作過程

Once the styling and scene have been identified, the animation section is about to be executed. At the beginning of the animation, after the genie says hi to everyone, he wants to go out and drops gifts to the children on Christmas Eve. He feels a little cold when opens the door, so he realizes that he forgets to wear a hat.

I use the display and hide to make the effect of flickering for the decoration on the Christmas tree.

In order to create the effect of a door opened, I use the wooden door deformation to create the illusion that the door opened.

In order to make the effect of wind blowing, the bangs should be drawn separately from the hair, so that the wind blow effect can be made by deforming the bangs.

造型及場景確認了,就要開始執行動畫的部分。動畫一開始,小精靈跟大家打招呼之後,就要在聖誕夜出門送禮物給小朋友。正要出門時覺得有點冷,才發現自己忘記戴帽子了。

聖誕樹上面的裝飾,利用顯示與隱藏來做出閃爍的效果。

木門打開時,利用將木門變形來做出打開時的角度變化。

為了做出風吹的效果,所以瀏海的部分要跟頭髮分開畫,這樣才能透過將瀏海變形來做出風吹的效果。

The genie goes back to the living room to find his hat out of the five hats on the big table.

There is a motion that the genie is happy to turn around. In fact, the 2D animation is not suitable for this kind of action, but the customer does not accept my suggestion and insists on turning circles. So I had to draw all angles to make the feeling of turning circles.

小精靈走回客廳,要從大長桌上的5頂帽子中找到自己的帽子。

中間有個動作是小精靈開心轉圈,其實平面的動畫並不適合做這種動作,但是客戶不接受我們的建議,堅持要轉圈。所以我只好畫各個角度,將這些轉圈的角度串起來,勉強做出轉圈的感覺。

After wearing the hat, the genie is ready to go out and finds that he has forgotten to bring a gift bag, so he has to find out his bag from 10 bags.

小精靈戴上帽子後正準備出門,又發現忘了帶禮物袋,所以要從10個袋子中找出要出去送禮物的大袋子。

Finally, the genie finally gets everything right and takes the sleigh to send gifts to children.

The effect of snowing is built in the After Effect. The snow effect is not very good, but the cartoon animation doesn’t require realism, so it is barely acceptable.

最後終於順利的帶齊所有的東西,乘著雪橇出門送禮物。

下雪的效果是After Effect內建的,覺得效果沒有特別好,不過卡通動畫不要求寫實,所以勉強可以接受。
