Post news RSS A Short Video Of The Hand-Drawn 2D Animation Process Behind Elroy And The Aliens

As we’re always saying, nothing beats “pen and paper” if you want to get that juicy cartoony vibe into a game.

Hello, folks!

So this is what our old-school animation process with modern tools looks like:

#1 Drawing Rough Keyframes:
Neck-breaking key poses for our hero’s animation.

#2 Drawing Rough Inbetweens:
Without them it’d be 1990 all over again. Timing and smoothness add to the fun!

#3 Drawing Clean Lines:
Cleaning up the illustrations making it all nice and tidy.

#4 Adding Color:
We like it colorful and shiny, ow yea!

#5 Shadowing:
Custom shadows make Elroy come to life even more.

The most important part of the whole thing –> #6 Love:
We always interlace the whole animation process with our pure and immaculate love for all the cartoons we have liked so much ever since we were pooping in a potty in front of the TV on a Saturday morning. :)

Check out our Website, Youtube channel, Twitter and Facebook for more Elroy content.

Thanks for your support!
