Post Anime Designs Methods and Skills
Anime Designs Methods and Skills
by: Ivan Lim

There is variety of ways to design an anime series. Very often, it depends on how an artist draws or designs, or what his or her personal techniques are. With most things that relate art, it can be difficult to apply system or structure to create anime. There are many anime series that start with the artists relying on the storyboard. This contains an artist drawing out plot and main flow before more meat is added further down the process of production. Animators who use such methods are generally structured in their ways and techniques. Other artist may have an abstract feel about their final project. They might have some vague idea in their minds writing it out panel by panel. They might not have a final progress in the whole story, lettering their ideas and imaginations run wild before choosing the one that feels right at the final stage. There are many artists who are said to be more structured and do not depend solely on visual direction. These artists can write different scripts that make different possible arcs to the anime plot. Then they choose the best one and start artistic design on it.

Despite the difference in technique, all animators still have to remember the final storylines to be delivered. This helps them to remain in focus in order to reduce waste of effort and time in not meeting production deadlines. Artists always try to improve themselves especially in the field of heavy industry as anime. There is no question that keeps a talented artist far, but nothing can substitute dedication and hard work. Most animators understand that and apply it to become good illustrators. To become an anime artist, you cannot gain new knowledge through the work of other animators. You should understand and learn their new techniques and see how you can work them into your own. It will lead to new creative stimulus and ideas.

While anime art is an artistic type of expression, animators should also research other forms of art such as writing, painting and even more boring and more structured engineering styles. These could be added to the overall experience and the anime art can only increase with different techniques and experiences from their artists. Anime is usually considered a type of limited animation. That means, the convention of limited animation is applied to make fool into thinking that there is more movement than there is. The internet has played an important role in the anime exposure of Japan. Before 1990’s, Japan had limited anime exposure in other countries. As the popularity of internet started, so did interest in anime. Most of the fandom anime came through the internet. The combination of different internet communities and raising amounts of anime material, from video to images helped to increase the growth of fandom. As the internet gained more popularity, internet advertising revenues increased from 1.6 billion yen to 180 billion between 1994 and 2004. Now, anime is considered as one of the greatest exports of Japan.
