Tahno Week day three: teamwork.
Drew this a few weeks ago and was eeeh about posting it because not my best work, but I think the tahsami tag could use some love.
The making of this.
I’m so thrilled this gif was popular. (omg Bill Rinaldi? Sempai noticed me!) There seemed to be a bit of confusion as to how I did it or whether it was “real.” So sorry if anyone was fooled, I would have made it clearer but I didn’t realize how convincing it was! You know how it is, when you’ve drawn it all you can see are the glaring flaws. x___x
But anyway. These are some progress shots from how I made it. I could go into a more detailed description of the process, but it’d be really long, and boils down to: Step 1: sacrifice goat to Satan. Step 2: draw for many many hours.
(No progress gifs of Tahno because he was pretty simple—just a pan and blink. The interesting part of him for me was the costume design, which is ridiculous and not very animation-friendly, but suits him.)
Done in Photoshop CS5 and Jasc Animation Shop Pro.
