My name is William Gannon and I am a British animator that has experience within 2D hand-drawn animation in an exaggerated cartoon art style. My work is generally inspired by that of the western animation studios and teams under Warner Bros, MGM and Hanna Barbera, as well as European comics. Upon graduating, I would like to work further towards becoming a full-time animator or storyboard artist within animation production for television and/or freelance projects.
In this piece, I used Clip Studio Paint for the bulk of the process, with animation, conceptual art and background design all being completed using the software. Each sequence would be exported and sent to a separate piece of editing software to be pieced together accordingly. For editing the piece, I used Adobe After Effect due to my prior understanding of the software in terms of basic video editing knowledge.
