I made this short animation to illustrate an After Effects tutorial for the Feb 2011 edition of Digital Arts Magazine. I love the convenience of working digitally but always try to keep the digital as invisible or at least as sensitively mixed with hand drawn elements as possible in my own work, so this tutorial explains the steps I go through to layer and blend my hand drawn and inked animation in After Effects.
Find the tutorial online here or get the print version from digital arts back catalogue.
