I'm just guessing that you are scanning or photographing your artwork and then attempting to separate elements. Usually animators work with completely separate layers. Making a seamless background from a cutout requires some skill and depending on the subject can be done fairly easily with the Content Aware fill. It would really help to know a little more about your project and maybe see a bit of your artwork.
Thanks for your reply!
Yes that's what I've been doing so far. I figured later that it would probably have been easier to create the layers digitally.
I am a fan of traditional means though, so wanted to give myself a challenge.
I tried the clone tools, healing brush and content aware fill with varying results. Perhaps I just have to switch between them all?
Here's a few examples. It's my first attempt at a comic so not superb..
1)Test Page Layout- The idea will be to move from frame to frame as you would in a comic book, but with camera movement etc.
2) In this panel I wish to move the glass and hand upwards as if the character's lifting it.
3) Here I want to add a Camera pan to left with a 2.5d effect on the character and perhaps slight
movement of background characters.
My story focuses on two characters mostly and is a romantic story with emphasis on motion, gestures, dance and how it can communicate a message.
Thanks for having a look!
You might wanna look up some Photoshop tutorials... Yes, you'll have to use combinations of all the tools and may even need to re-draw considerable parts. And you should indeed work in layers and draw some clean plates. Capturing naturalistic painting styles otherwise is pretty difficult...
Okey. Yeah I'm trying to absorb everything I can of tutorials:) I was fearing that I might have to re-draw it, but seems there's no way around it.
