OK, here they are, my last ten animation background frames made in RoughAnimator app. Enjoy!
Now to fill them with animation!
You're probably wondering about the "Buy Me a Coffee" button on my title. I have joined Ko-fi, the website that helps fans of an artist get paid for their work through small donations, or "coffees", of $3 each, the price of a cup of coffee. I am welcoming all of you to "buy me a coffee" so I can entertain you with more cartoons online. Thanks in advance.
I posted a funny message about Ko-fi on my Facebook Fan Page. When my very serious brother Paul saw it, he just didn't get it. The post said something about our Mom not liking my drinking all the coffee in the house so will you please help me buy my own coffee and, oh yeah, support my art? Paul thought this was some kind of insult to Mom, and let me have it verbally, saying how he felt. Of course I've had harsh critiques before, but this one was coming from someone close to me. It kind of ruined my Sunday. Eventually, I did show the post to Mom, and she didn't feel insulted in the least. I don't know what Paul's problem was, but it was his problem. And it ain't mine!
Last Sunday, of course, was Father's Day, and my Daddy didn't want anything special, so he enjoyed his day like he did any other day: watching cable TV and raiding the refrigerator. Hey, it was his day! Speaking of which, here's my latest Trump & Co. cartoon about that subject:
Here's hoping your Father's Day was more loving and less materialistic.
This week I've been working on cartoon backgrounds in my RoughAnimator app on my tablet. Take a look at them.
These are the first ten. I'll show you the other ten next time.
Last night I finished four gag cartoons, and I want to show them to you. First, this week's Our Follies:
Next, the latest Trump & Co.:
Now, a new OFFtoons comic:
And lastly, my new cartoon E.C. Follies, starring those Region Rats, the Rattisons!
Did you have a good time reading my cartoons? I sure had fun making them! And I'm making lots more. Enjoy!
For several years I've been using a 2D animation software called Anime Studio. I always got the Debut version every year because I could afford it, and I'd been doing pretty fine with it, making "cutout" animation in the style of South Park (but not the humor style!). Now, I want something different: I want my 2D animation to look like my hand-drawn print cartoons. So I decided to learn hand-drawn animation with RoughAnimator.
RoughAnimator is a 2D animation app I got in the Google Play Store (I have an Android tablet). It took a while to learn to draw on a tablet with a stylus and I'm still working on it. But so far, I've done some animation that I think is pretty darn good, and looking like my print cartoons. You've seen some of it in past blogposts.
Well, now I'm experimenting more with RoughAnimator doing backgronds--ones that move. Here are my first three.
RoughAnimator is available in the Google Play Store for Android and the App Store for iOS, both for 4.99. It's also available for Windows and Mac, both for 9.99 at roughanimator.com, where you can also upload a trial version of both.
