Food Module: Colouring in the Animation Sequences

After Anna had completed the line work for the animation sequences that Rebecca had made, I began to colour the files using Photoshop. I used Photoshop as the animation sequences were made in psd files as well as the ease of adding colour to lineart using the program tools. I mainly used the wand tool and bucket tool to fill the lineart with colour, extending the selection by 1 pixel to ensure that there would be no pixelation with the fill. The only problem I encountered whilst colouring in the lineart was the position of the star on his top. As the animation was quite smooth and the lines grew as he takes a deep breath, it was hard to figure out whereabouts the star should be as the collar of the t-shirt was positioned differently in each movement. I was able to solve this problem by exaggerating the placement with the more exaggerated movements of the shoulders and used the onion skinning option to be able to see where the previous star was placed on the top.
