August 2019 #animaitsuki Challenge (Extended through September!)

This month will be different from the rest. Instead of a poll of which we always do, Jarrett and I already decided on the challenge: a tribute to Kyoto Animation.
I know that some of you guys are already collaborating for a tribute to them which is awesome. Help spread the word and love of a studio who brought much happiness to the world!

Yes, we all are saddened by the devastation the attack brought upon the anime industry, we lost a lot of good people in that fire. We want to make animations for this month’s Animaitsuki in honor of Kyoto animations incredible work.

Let make animations based on our favorite shows that Kyoto Animation brought to us!

Remember to post your work here and on twitter at the end of the month with #animaitsuki and #アニ毎月

Hey guys! Good news!
Since a lot of us care deeply about this month’s animaitsuki(myself included), we’re going to extend this for another month alongside the September animaitsuki. The poll for that will be posted soon!

Wonderful. I was rushing to finish mine for this saturday… almost done. More time to correct some issues won’t hurt. Thanks.

Oh, awesome! I have the 1st genga done for my submission, but I REALLY wanna clean them up for this event. Might even go all the way and tween/color them! Thanks for letting us know! :smiley:

Got my idea ready for this challenge. Just need to clean up that first frame, and then work on building out the rough keyframes.

Beautiful line work :wink:
And beautiful character… Mio.
Trying to finish mine but struggling with wind and hair.
Will it be a september Animaitsuki challenge alongside the extended august one or not finally. I saw a poll that vanished :slight_smile:

Thanks! And yeah it will just be extended august this month.

Yeah hair and wind is tough, I’m going to attempt wind and cloth physics in this one of Mio, I always have the hardest time with the side burns, feel like they never really look right. They typically end up noodley

Rejected shot from my animaitsuki. Will post the final soon.
Gladly I didn’t do all the inbetweens for this one but it was difficult to reject it . Hairs are not on model and it was a problem with another shot. good training nevertheless.

Here is my tribute to Kyoto Animation. The final project have music on it… Really trying to go through all the process from the original idea to the compositing.
Looking forward to what everyone is doing.

Damn, ive just seen this i would love to participate. Ill work expeditiously now

So here’s mine I guess. Not really an animation, it’s an animatic, but hey, it contains more unique drawings than any animation I’ve ever done (143 to be precise). It’s for the bigger KyoAni collab I advertised here some time ago. It grew from 30 seconds to 3:20 minutes, because I barely knew what I was doing, oops.
