test- animation colorist by mayshing test- animation colorist by mayshing
:star: Look to the left, Click Download to download PSD file.

Programs: 
Anything that can color will be fine. 

Directions: 
1. Duplicate lineart layer. Place it under the official lineart. 
    EX: Layer 1 on top of Layer 1 copy

2. Fill/color on duplicated lineart layer using drop tool, sample color from the finished color sample on file. (NOT the model sheet! The color is different from scene to scene so current model sheet is only for reference.) 

3. After finish, check if anything flood outside of your color layer and cause pixellation. If that happened, clean it up so it's neat and clean. If the coloring does not meet requirement I will request retry. 

4. Merge down the lineart layer to the duplicated copy layer. 

Repeat until you finish. 
After you finish email to mayshingATgmail

If you pass you will be listed into the colorist group, when there's job coming I will pass it out to all available artist. 

:star: model sheets of the character for your reference: altabe.deviantart.com/art/Jere…


Test for coloring for people interested in helping out with my animation.


:salute: Be aware, the workload is not light, you will be required to show me result in a week once given assignment. It's like a job, like the do it or doom homework, do it like it is.



:D You will be included on a special marketing discount when the dvd is out.

Sai works just fine, it takes a bit longer than photoshop.

Are you still looking for colorists? I'm looking for experience, even if it is free work.

I was wondering...Does this just mean, coloring frames that you've drawn in flat color? If so, I was wondering if I could help out :D I have a tablet so it's pretty easy for me to color. I'll give this a go for you :D Anything to help you~

Alright. So what I've done is coloured one of the 2 frames and fixed the already coloured one. Phew~
Hard work but I'm really enjoying it :D

Do you want me to merge the groups? Or leave the layers for you to take a look at?

I'm definetly interested and will give this a try. You can check out my gallery for examples of what I can do with color. This week I'm busy preparing for a convention this week end, but I'll be available afterwards. If I have time this week, I'll do your color test if you feel it is still necessary. Would love to help out on your project. Keep up the great work with your art.

hiring is open always, because when we pass out the assignments, not everyone has time at the moment. So we take as many as we can and just use those who are available. ^^

Alright! Thank you! Um... do you have a preference as to applications right now? As in, would you rather have colorists or inkers...? Sorry to ask so many questions ;u;
Reply
:iconmayshing:
mayshing Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011  Professional Filmographer
rather have inkers, but inkers require more skill such as knowing animation and be sensitive to lines quality, as well as know anatomy, its not as easy to get them.
Reply
:iconperelandri:
Perelandri Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2011
I see... I'm still not that experienced in animation yet (though I'd like to think I have a pretty good grasp on anatomy >A<;; ) but it's a field that I want to get a job in eventually...! Do you have any suggestions for guides or anything that would be good for would-be inkers to use? :>

Hey you're welcome, oh well I love animation and I'm planning on making a really short short this summer, so I thought it'd be good practice helping you out, plus I'm so lazy and unmotivated most of the time,that I guess it'll force me to do something instead of moping around midway through June, yeah. Plus I loved your heart's melody and I loved how you took up this grand idea to make this epic animation..yeah so I wanted to help you out. I hope I can pass :lol:

Thanks.

no problem. i am posting my thesis soon and its a giant leap from Heart's melody. I didn't post my third year because I had an agreement with the musician not to post it until I can fit the animation to the finished piece.

Thanks man. Awesome, can't wait to watch it. I bet it is, you must've gotten even better.

:lol:

Music certainly does add a lot to an animation. Its like speech isn't always necessary, but I feel that music really completes an animation...well the right kind any way. I just saw your journal, goodluck with your screening!

Must be awesome, to have your animation screened in front of a whole audience eh, neat :iconnewglomp:

music is a big part of it, but the musicians currently working with me all still need room to grow, I avoided professional's songs because it will limit my film's public access or it might become too expensive.
