Tutorial Krita – How I animate in Krita


hello everyone and welcome back to my channel in this video I’m gonna be showing you how I animate in Krita. Something that I usually do before I start animating is .. decide what I’m gonna animate first. For this video I’m gonna be animating an eye moving. Next what I do is .. I make a layer that has that I’ll be calling sketch, and then I make sure to .. set that show inside the timeline. After that I go into the, one of
these little spots on the timeline then go to the .. frame that says zero and then I’m gonna right click on that and create a blink frame. So that they’ll be sitting here for me to start drawing on to. Sometimes I forget to do that, so that’s something that I make sure I do.. whenever I start. And for now I just want
this animation to go on for 30 frames I’m gonna create a frame after this and
make that a blink frame now what I’m gonna do is .. sketch out the circle for the eye. I’ll be back to you with that after I get that down. alright. next thing I’m gonna do is create another frame, and I’m going to name this frame sketch two, and on this one I’m not going to be animating the eye. I’m gonna make sure it’s add this one to
the timeline so we’re to show up I’m gonna change the color of this to something else, so it won’t look the same as the first sketch layer I did.. not be able to tell them both apart. Now I’m gonna start animating. I don’t know exactly what I want the eye to do, but I’ll figure that out as I go along. it’s usually a lot of trial and error when I’m working on animations. Sometimes I have a very clear idea of what I want to do and I just need to figure out the
timing for it, and sometimes I don’t know exactly what I want to do but I have a
vague idea so Just some stuff out or just
picturing it in my mind is usually how I get going with that. for the first part of this is just gonna
be a lot of sketching, and figuring out the timing for this, but like once I get
down all the sketches I’ll have more to say, so I’ll see you there. When I’m doing
animations and I have a beginning and end what I would do is turn on this
little thing here that’s like a light bulb that is the onion skins button
right there so I can see the layer below. For this animation I’m probably just gonna do a simple blink or maybe not simple but a blink. when I do animation I usually go frame by frame, and even before I get to the lineart part of the animation. I’m trying to figure out the timing for how I want it to go. It all depends on what I’m animating to help me to determine the timing, and I usually replay
back the animation over and over again till it looks the way that I want it to. It’s a lot of trial and error. Usually I try to make sure I get the animation
down pat before I start the lineart but sometimes even while I’m doing the lineart, I’ll either add some animation or I’ll take out some animation. Which means I’d have to go back to the sketch layer to add some if I needed to add something or I could just you know leave something out. Animation is more of a hobby to me so I
don’t take it too seriously, if I don’t do an animation perfectly well, but every
time I do an animation I try to do something different, or to improve as I
go. Just like I do with any other piece of art that I work on. Well this is a little bit on how I do animation in Krita. I hope this video was helpful to
you in some way, and I thank you for watching, and I’ll see you all next time. bye you
