Hi guys,

i decided to try to animate berserk (only little random scenes for the moment) to understand better what kind of medias to use and how to organize the massive work it means.

i was thinking about 2 ways of animation:


1) full 2d animation using both manual and digital drawing/coloring

2) 3d hand-built and painted dioramas for environments and Rotoscoping for characters (so create good cosplays and use credible actors)



i started with the 2d animation just because i can do it by myself and don't need much more than my computer and some pencils/paper.

here the first test i am working on, it's really complicated and long and i's still work in progress but i start to understand better what and how to do it.



here what i started to do (it's more a video board than a finished animation):

let me know what do you think about it, both suggestions and insults are well received!!! :)

holy crap that is sick!  :isidro:  :guts: What you have going on here is very good. Maybe one day I will learn animation techniques. I personally  think you should go with 2d animation using both manual and digital drawing/coloring.

It looks great! I prefer the black and white one. But man you have a lot of work ahead of you.

Doing a portion of the Lost Children would be cool since it's the one area that's never had any related animation.

I agree with Vixen, your stuff looks amazing, Especially the 2D hand drawn stuff. Maybe even ask around what kind of scenes people would like to see a little animation for. Maybe even use them as GIFs for peoples profiles and stuff.

And YES Lost Children would be an amazing place to start...

Also there is a Berserk fan group making digital animations of the manga. I don't have the info for them but I bet they would love your help!

Wow.  If this is something you're passionate about I hope you continue.  Both styles are so different, but the second would be my preference in style, though I like the look of color when animated.
Be objective or be silent.

Terrific work, Rapaz! You know it's funny, Lith and I have talked in the past about doing something similar ourselves, but it's so difficult that I never actually got around to it. :ganishka: I like your approach, though - it's like a moving colored page of the manga! All it needs is some creepy music in the background.

Perhaps you guys can team up and create a fan-made Berserk limited animation series. Like Clutch Cargo

That airplane of Clutch Cargo's that you see "flying"? It's actually a filmed drawing of an airplane being physically dragged across a drawing of a sky  :ganishka:

The second way with dioramas and rotoscoping sounds electrifying.
There arent many things made like that, so it makes the idea even more interesting,
 At least for the visuals.
