The Balloon - Grease Pencil short animation

I've created The Balloon to test the capability of the new Grease Pencil in Blender 2.8

It's combination of frame by frame and puppet technique. I chose straight forward approach for this project, everything is contained in a single blend file and I've worked on each short sequentially.

I originally intended to make the project file available to public, but there are lots of mistakes and imperfections I've made along the way, so it's kind of messy in there. There are many thing that I did the "wrong" way, due to not knowing the full capability of GP. I've learned a lot from this project, though.

Thanks the development team for this amazing tool.
Enjoy the film.

  1. Very nice!
    Wish you had used a better background texture tough, it doesn't look that good on bigger screens.

    Looking forward to your future works :)

  2. It would be great if the author could show his workflow as a tutorial to teach other people how to produce short animations by single authors. This way we will have more and more people producing projects like this.

      Hi, I've tried recording the 'behind the scene' last night,
      but maybe I was too sleepy it feels like I was mumbling non-sense :-D

      I'll try again soon.
