This is the animated intro for our latest showreel, followed by the various stages in the animation process. It starts with the “pencil test” shoot that shows the pencil line on paper, then shows the cleanup or “outline pass” which we create in the computer after scanning in the drawings. From there it’s the “base color pass” that fills in all the colors of our character, and then finally, the “final color pass” adds shadows and any final details to finish the piece!
