I’ve learnt so much this week and I’m so pleased with the final outcome. So here it is, D for Drip!
I had this idea from the get go, I just had to work out how I was going to get there! I followed a tutorial about liquid shapes so I could get the hang of that, then it was just a matter of transcribing it into my dripping letter D. The main thing I learnt was how to use CC Rough Edges and how to combine shapes so they all work together as one.
Another swift thing I learnt for this letter was background patterns. I’m really pleased about learning this as it brings the whole animation alive, as whilst I didn’t want to distract away from the main animation, I also didn’t want just a plain, dull background.
All in all I’m very happy with this animation, and I’ve definitely picked up on a number of skills I will continue to use. The whole thing took me about 4 hours in total, but that also includes the time spent on the tutorial.
As always, thanks for reading! I’m always eager to hear any feedback on my blog, some animating tips or just general chit chat, so Tweet me if you fancy on @stephhh.
