2D Animation

2D animation takes you back to your childhood

That’s right. The first thing you probably saw on the television as a child was a 2D animated cartoon.

That’s because 2-dimensional animation or 2D is the most popular form of animation. It is also one of the oldest forms of animation having been introduced during the 1800s. It was created by using multiple frames together, with each frame featuring a drawing that is slightly different from the one on the next frame. For each second, 24 frames were drawn. That’s a lot of frames! While the original technique meant hand-drawing each frame, today, advanced software is used to create and animate characters and backgrounds.

2D animation is also the most accessible medium

2D animation is everywhere. Whether it’s children’s cartoons, adult cartoons (Archer anybody?), explainer videos, product and service advertisements, billboards – it’s safe to say that 2D animation is by far the most popular medium of animation; and we do it all. By operating in these two dimensions we as animators can focus the viewer’s attention on the meaning and the storyline, instead of having them look at everything all together. Simple storylines can be brought to life in the most interesting and alluring way thanks to 2D animation.

2D Animation

Steps in the Animation Process

Conceptualization and Scripting

Before we can start a project, we need to figure out the end result – and then we work backwards. In our initial meeting with a potential client, we understand the client requirement while working out the big picture. This concept determines character sketching, sequencing, and scripting outcomes. We also use this opportunity to understand the overall feel of the clip or video and learn what it is trying to achieve.

Storyboard

With a clear concept in mind, we start developing a storyboard. A storyboard is a graphic representation of how the video will unfold, shot by shot. It’s made up of a number of squares with illustrations or pictures representing each shot, with notes about what’s going on in the scene, as well as what’s being said as part of the script during that shot. This helps us create a clear picture of the storyline, character design, and overall production layout.

Animatics

An animatic is a string of storyboard images edited together (often with sound) to illustrate how a sequence will flow in motion. It’s a next-level technique after storyboarding. It’s not always a necessary step, however, it does provide a fuller sense of what the finished project will look like. During this phase, we introduce pre-planned visual elements that are later used in the animation outcome while maintaining compatibility with the story.

Clean-up and Coloring

With an animatic skeleton in place, it’s time to work on the final product. It is in this stage where we do the final character and background drawings to produce a finished product (film, episode, explainer video etc). Once the clean-up process is done, we start adding colour to the animation.

Content and Keyframes

If the process wasn’t interesting enough so far, this is where the magic happens! The next step is to develop keyframes to determine the timing of movements of characters and background elements while developing the character skeletons used to animate and modify specific parts in these characters. This is what helps us begin to bring everything to life, whether it’s for a film or tv series, or a simple instructional video for a product or service.

Compositing, editing, and the final product

In the final step of the process, our animators compose different scenes as per the storyline and begin. The character skeletons from the previous step begin to look more like themselves, and backgrounds get filled in with details. Depending on the type of video, we insert voiceovers, sound effects, and music, and then once we have everything completed, we render the end result.
