Apply Research - Looking at Animations that incorporate Photoshop

To gain inspiration for my Apply animation, I scoured Vimeo and Youtube and found interesting animations that had incorporated Photoshop into their work.

Mac 'n' Cheese from Mac 'N' Cheese on Vimeo.

This first animation is very detailed and holds a digital painted quality that is aesthetically pleasing and works well with the plot and style of the animation. The movement of the characters flow well as there are no jagged movements and the frames of the movement aren't visible to the eye.

Rabbitkadabra! from Rabbitkadabra! on Vimeo.

This animation is created through the use of Maya, Photoshop and other digital software. The style of the animation is cute through the portrayal of the soft lit scenery, characters that have big eyes and detailed appearance, eg texture of clothing, added freckles, etc. I found this video inspiring through the expressions of the characters and the plot of the animation, as it absorbs a happy ending which is appealing to a young audience.

The "A Fox Tale" animation is created through the use of Photoshop, After Effects and other digital software which creates this soft CG animation style that reminds me of a less textured Kung Fu Panda. (I also think its due to the kung fu/martial arts action scene in the animation that reminds me of Kung Fu Panda)
The animation is aesthetically pleasing through the use of the frame angles, close ups, long shots to make parts of the animation dramatic and the illustrative style used.
