3 PROGRAMS ???...

It took 3 different programs to make this one image. I drew it in Flash, cleaned it in Illustrator and colored it in Photoshop. I think I'm just dumb and don't know any of these programs well enough to use them to their full potential. I mean..,there's gotta be ONE program that can do it all, right?

To clarify - A program that will allow me to minipulate the proportions of my thumbnail drawings then 'clean' them with a crisp 'vector' line that looks like a kick ass Illustrator brush. Then be able to color it as if it were watercolor with drybrushed highlights, alpha shadow layers and stampable custom t-shirt designs and, AND the ability to zoom in infinately witout pixelation and then break it all down in that 'same' program for it to be aminated. That's all.

Someone please enlighten me.
(and just sos ya know...I called myself dumb so that you wouldn't)

THANK YOU!!!

 


A big thanks to everyone who helped us reach and surpass our goal on INDIEGOGO. Your donation are much appreciated and will help us to put together our pilot 'animatic'!

The MonstroCity High blog is now public - so come on by and visit! See all the MCH development since it's inception in 2005 - from the making of the vinyl figures to concept art to test animation, interviews and sad attempts at me trying to write the theme song.

Although we DID reach our funding goal it is still at an early stage and we will hopefully have a NEW revised page at INDIEGOGO with a NEW goal and a load of NEW vip perks and opportunities for fans to get involved. So stay tuned and once again...

THANK YOU!

*btw - you can still help fund the show and receive VIP perks by visiting the Indiegogo link above.

We need your help to get MonstroCity High into production.

SERIOUSLY, we can't do this without you! Believe me, we tried. It's not that we didn't want to come to you first, it's just, umm....well, this is awkward.



Maybe you should visit our project at IndieGoGo.
