I’m deep in the process of making my motion comic short film, The Innocence of Seduction, using the process of motion comics. Marvel made cartoons in this manner in the 1960s and 2000s, there was a Watchmen motion comic that exceeded the movie, and shows like Minoriteam utilized the technique to hysterical effect. To go along with the finished movie, I’ve been recording several “how to” tutorials and the first part- Creating Motion Comics with Adobe Photoshop – is now up on my Skillshare channel!
In my class we cover where to find artwork, how to extract and repair it, using Photoshop’s animation features, creating tweens and warps, and more! It’s Part 1 of a 3 part series on Motion Comics, with future installments focusing on Adobe After Effects and Character Animator. I’m excited to share the process as I think motion comics are a fun way to keep the original aesthetic of the comic art form while adding the drama of film.
