Wink Painting Animation

Hello all,
It's great to be a part of this awesome forum.
Lots of awesome stuff here!!

I love watercolor painting and animation so I combine the two if it makes any sense :-)

I've been animating for about 10 years and here's a little bit of what I do.

Thanks for checking it out.

Default Thanks !!

Thank you David and Max.
To answer to your question, I paint on watercolor paper but
To make those individual layers not transparent and rather overlapped
I scan individual frames, take the white part of the paper out on photoshop(alpha channeled) and composite in After affects :-)

I like very much the watercolor style. With it you can paint animation and true themes. But is difficult, you must have a lot of experience

Talking

Among all of my colleagues that I studied animation with, I am not even at average skills but I love watercolor painting and my mentor Corny Cole III told me I can and I should animate with watercolor since that's what's the most natural to me :-)

My mom is a watercolor artist in Fairbanks alaska and I grew up watching her paint. It's so cool to see two mediums I love dearly cross over like this. If you don't mind me asking, whats your new animation going to be of/about?

I remember a friend started using this kinda style just before he left University. Shame he didn't experiment with it earlier. He would have got a first, it was his best work. This showreel jogged my memory. Very nice.

Thank you for the positive feedback.
My new animation will be also in watercolor. It will be about "Free Spirit" but that's pretty much all I am going to say if anything, I will have my updates on my website or blog. www.willkim.net It's not easy pursuing what not everyone prefers to watch but slowly I think it is reaching out to some audience. Thanks again!
