I’ve completed the first pass of coloring all of the characters in my thesis and now I am moving onto adding shadows and lighting effects to each character in Toon Boom Animate Pro. I’ve also completed most of the backgrounds but I still need to animate a few non-human elements. Below are a few examples of how I will apply effects to the animation via Toon Boom’s network system. This overall process should be completed by May 1st, about 2 weeks before the submission date.
Below is an example of how I arrange the network for a rigged puppet like leg with a frame by frame animated leg in the same shot.
