Animate Saitama from anime One-punch man in one day
In this post, I will explain in a simple way how you moved the character Saitama from the anime One Punch Man, in just one day, in order to finish a scene on a day that is not difficult at all, especially when you are free on that day.
I collected some pictures of Saitama from the net, put them on the screen, and then I drew in my mind the movement that I wanted, which was his speech, and then he punched the ground strongly, then I drew a simple and quick sketch of the movement, with adjustments, erasures and repetition of the drawing until I reach the desired result, and this is the most important stage. Let your hand rest and draw as you wish, because we will fix everything later.
After the quick lines, I drew directly black, with cleaner lines over the diagram, but in a single layer, and I repeated that, erased all the previous errors, and focused more on making the lines as neat as possible, and being airtight, because Toon Boom Harmony that I work with, does not color if there is a small hole in the drawing.
After drawing I painted, without shading, and I relied on finishing one color first, for example, “I color the dress in yellow in all scenes, and when I finish with the yellow color, I move directly to the red color and finish it in all the scenes etc.”, with coloring the floor and stones And everything that surrounds the character, and I add the background that I drew in advance in the Paint Studio clip program.
Camera and effects
The last step is always the movement of the camera and the effects, and it is the easiest step for me and I love it a lot and I add whatever effects I like and I play with the movement of the camera however I want, as you notice during the video that the camera shakes when it punches the ground, and when I finished it I added the lights Like sunshine and light bloom in order to give it a more anime look.
Thus, I explained without complicating how I did this scene, I started it in the day and finished it at night, and I did not finish in my life a whole scene in one day, it is true that I finished in a day, but it was very tiring, and I did not like the idea of my long sitting for a scene Therefore, I do not think I will repeat this matter, on the contrary, I found that doing a scene on several days is easier and better and does not cause fatigue.
