Here’s something fun to take your mind off all your anxieties—my son Nathan’s storyboard for his latest animation project. He’s taking 2D animation this semester at the University of Utah.

    I’ve always enjoyed animation, though I can’t draw a straight line myself and certainly not a figure. I assume this is hand drawn, since I can see the foundation circles sketched for head placement and such. Did he draw and then scan each panel? How does this process work?

    He uses a program called Procreate on his iPad. He can make rough sketches directly onto the screen with an Apple Pencil, then package and export them together as an mp4. I believe he will have to use Adobe Animate to complete the animation phase, though. He did show me that he had done a very basic 3D model of the kitchen in Blender to use as a template when he gets to hand drawing the cels for the animation.

    Hand drawing? That’s old school!

    Yes! Though he hand draws on an iPad, so there are some advantages to that. This is the first time he’s done 2D animation this way, so it’s a new experience for him. It’ll be rough, but I think he’s done a good job so far.
