Hand Drawn Animation in Photoshop Sped Up- Rough Squash and Stretch Test

There's a tutorial by the artist and animator Aaron Blaise about creating a squash and stretch effect for character animation. This is my very rough attempt at creating one for a character I made up. I made this in Photohshop and recorded it to see how long it would take me and to look back over any mistakes I made.             

The tutorial can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vsp2Z1IIy4

In the tutorial Aaron Blaise is using TVPaint as his animation software, but seeing that I don't have that and I don't really like using Flash, I went for Photoshop and created this very short piece in there.


Over all this took me around forty minutes to complete, and the video editing took a further thirty minutes to do.

Castle on a Cloud- Animation Lip Sync Test

I wanted to try out some lip syncing and fancied using Photoshop to animate on again. This is very basic blocking out of a short clip of animation, which I could take ahead further and improve. For now I've left it too late in the day to add more onto it, and I might get another sound bite to work from for tomorrow. Sound bite is from the 11 Second Club.

Experimenting in Photoshop: Grey Scale to Colour

I came across a tutorial on how to colour black and white drawings. I wanted to try it as I had never tried rendering a drawing like this and I like the look it creates as it reminds me of book illustrations. 

The link to the tutorial is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zurMZ97uLKM

I really like how this image has turned out and hope to use this technique in the future.

Grey scale (longest part, took around 7-8 hours for me)

Animating in Photoshop- Test Shot

I wanted to try out more animation in Photoshop, so I made this very quick test shot. I'd like to do more with hand drawn animation, and I feel I know where I need to improve from making this quick test. I feel I need to improve on animating shadows, and clean up lines. Also feel I could do with some more drawing exercises to help me improve with drawing anatomy.
