First of all, thanks to all the new people who've watched me and thanks to everyone who's watched my latest animation (if you haven't already watch it now!! www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iVJEi… It's been a pretty big project of mine and I've been working on it for quite some time, I'm just glad it's finished... it feels like such a heavy burden has been lifted off me now. I guess it's sort of been my dream to create a battle with different anime and video game characters. I'm also happy it's got a lot of positive feedback, I wasn't really expecting this much :D Anyway, I'm not too sure what I'll do next ^^; I think I'll take a break from animating for now and perhaps start drawing more (I don't think I'm too good at drawing atm so I think I'll practice a bit before I submit anything) I would also like to create some vocaloid music videos some time in the future. As for a sequel to this animation, I have a few ideas for it (some characters I'd like to include are Raiden (MGS), Ulquiorra (Bleach) and Caius Ballad (FF13-2) ) but I haven't given it a lot of thought, and I probably won't start it for a long time anyway. But if you have an idea or want a character in it then please comment below! ^^

Also, I'm hoping to upload it to niconicodouga (I guess it's sort of like Japan's version of youtube) since after all, all these characters do have Japanese origins so it may be well received there too. If somebody can and would like to translate my script to japanese please let me know!

Hey it's been a while! :D I just finished Ichigo's body now so now I have to create his bankai clothes, then rig him. Then I'll model and animate one of the fight scenes from Bleach. All in 2 months. Maybe... (knowing me it will probably take much longer XD )

Dude check this out.3d animation that was made to look like 2d:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=NKGPhK…

It really looks like 2d anime.Unreal engine was used for rendering.I am actually trying to research how they made it look so anime like.I might be using 3d afterall for my animations.Currently occupied with my archviz masters project using UE4.

:o Damn that looks good! Some parts really do look like they were hand drawn. I think the low frame rate helped with that, to match up with the same frame rate as 2D anime. I considered lowering the frame rate of my previous animation but was a bit skeptical as I thought it would look too choppy, but I might try doing that for my next one seeing how it looks good here.

Exactly,I read somewhere the real trick to it was they used stepped animation only.The same way u would animate in 2d.That just makes animating way easier.That also means u don't need a complex rig to get the job done.Just pose by pose is good enough.

They use a lot of tricks in 2D animation to save frames such as cycling a movement or still frames for characters, which can easily be replicated in 3D. Character animation in anime runs at about 8 - 12 fps when there's a lot of action, which is a third to half of normal 3D animation. I suppose the 3D software could just interpolate between those frames to make it fluid, but it might break the illusion of it looking like a 2D anime.

You might also want to check out the latest smash bros trailer:

I believe that same style of cell shaded animation is used in the Fire Emblem Awakening games (though I'm hesitant to watch them yet since I'm planning to buy the game...). It looks really good, probably the style I was aiming for in my last animation.
