For my research task I have decided to study and analyse an animation named ‘The Reward’ produced by a team named Sun Creature. This animation is one of many made for a youtube project called ‘Tales of Alethiron’.
The channel/their website also features many videos showing the production process, this includes initial illustrations, animatics and storyboards. When it comes to animation all of the assets and backgrounds will be made on photoshop, most animation studios like this will have sketchpads that allow artists to draw with a stylus in various programs.
I like the art style of this animation, the attention to detail is something you don’t see in a lot of 2d animations. Another unique thing that ‘Sun creature studios’ do in their animations is having no dialogue, this is extremely challenging to do in ‘frame by frame’ animation as the only way of storytelling is in body language and facial expressions.
