Now we have to create our own interactive story. We have the next two weeks to do it. This week is manly about character design. We have to choose a specific style for our story and then create at least 2 characters. I chose Manga as style and a panda and cat as my characters (yes I do love animals). I actually drew Manga when I was younger, but I must admit I have not done it in years. Anyway I got nostalgic when I heard Mange was one of the style options we could choose from.
We watch videos on youtube describing the 12 Basic Principles of Animation by Frank Thomas & Ollie Johnston. I would truly recommend for anyone whos is interested in animation, but still has not reached Disney-animator-level to watch them! Afterwards I threw myself into the task and started drawing.
