Currently trying to perfect the backgrounds for my Animation.
I started with a sketch for my wallpaper. When I began with the sketch I was planning on simply drawing several flowers to create this wallpaper. But I got to a point and realized that I could simply make edits on the computer, so I brought my image into Adobe Illustrator.
I live traced it and added color. Although my animation is going to be really dark and muted. I wanted to start with a bright image that I can bring down in After Effects with the rest of the animation.
Then it came to creating the scene. It had a lot to do with rotating and simply playing with it. I’m still not sure if I am completely happy with it, but it’s a step in the right direction.
Then I of course don’t simply have one indoor background in my animation, but instead two, so I needed to create a second. This time I went for a more subdued background. Once again I will change the way it looks in After Effects, but it’s definitely a start.
