Make Fun Sliced Up Monster Character Animated Gifs With Affinity Designer and The Free Wick Editor Free Tutorial Download
About This Class
Have you ever wanted to learn to create monster characters and have a little bit of fun with them. And have you secretly yearned to go one step further and experiment with them, separating out their heads, bodies and legs and then get truly creative with your character designs.
If you have, look no further because in this class you’ll be creating and coding your own animated monster character gif using the free open sourced web browser based Wick Editor games and animation tool – wickeditor.com together with the brilliant mobile illustration iPad app, Affinity Designer to create six monster character designs.
I was inspired to make this class after seeing and playing the popular children’s mix and match styled card games. I thought you must be able do this digitally using software, or an app, to automatically jumble up all these picture parts and make an abonimable looking, but fun animated monster gif, or web game out of them.
I always like to check out image ideas first on websites like Pinterest, where I can see many different types of monster character design and games. It just gives me an idea of how I can assemble my designs and set them up, so that they’re ready to be used as coded assets in The Wick Editor for an animated game.
And sometimes even getting started on a character can seem really hard, so I show you how I start making a monster by simply drawing a triangle in Affinity Designer and then challenging myself to only use that shape to make a character, really as a kickstart to get my creative juices going. I find this a great alternative to sketching lots of ideas out, as for me I prefer to work digitally, trying out experimenting with lots of ideas on my iPad first, using the brilliant range of creative apps you can now get for it.
