Hi everyone, I would like to know if you animate on paper or digitally and why.
I would originally draw on paper, but learned digital animation for work in my country of Canada. I left that job after about a year and then got hired doing layout/rough genga in Japan. While I have only been here for about half a year, I’ve been working completely traditionally on paper and I really enjoy working this way, something about the tactile feel and the rawness of a pencil line really draws me in. I don’t consider myself a very strong animator compared to my co-workers (nor that good at Japanese), but I am learning a lot. Recently the studio was asking me about working digitally because I’ve done it back in Canada. I am really torn if I want to go back to working digitally. Would like to hear some opinions. Maybe I should do layout and rough genga digitally, and 2nd genga traditionally?
