How we create character animation

You can count on our 3D/2D character animation studio to go the extra mile during character animation production, just to ensure that all the movements are smooth, measured, and believable. We pay a huge amount of attention to detail and leave no stone unturned until the whole sequence is at the high level of quality that you deserve.

Asset collection

Obtaining the 2D/3D model of a character is absolutely vital for further animation, as is understanding what they are meant to do in the sequence. If the asset is not available when we begin work, we can also perform the modeling and motion planning ourselves.

Rigging & Skinning

At this stage, we design the digital skeleton of the character, which may not be visible in the final animation, but will nonetheless determine the position of each limb, joint, and significant body part during movement.

Production

We import the assets into our animation software of choice and get to work in creating the sequence. The order of events is usually prepared in a storyboard, and we work with the content until the technical parameters and overall impression are favorable.

Finishing touches

VFX, SFX, lighting, shadows – these things can be easily overlooked by some companies, but not us. We will polish the animation and touch it up with the needed effects until it is simply impeccable, and deliver it to you at a high definition.

FAQ

Can you also design character behavior and interactions on top of animation?

Yes, definitely. Though our studio is primarily focused on creating 2D and 3D assets, we also have capable developers in the staff that have both created scripts and functionality for game components, as well as complete games for multiple genres and platforms. Thus, you can delegate more than one aspect of your project to us, and we promise not to let you down.
Yes, absolutely. Both 2D character art and animation are in our wheelhouse, and our years of experience in game design will go a long way towards making sure that the character sprites follow the rules of the gameplay and adhere to storytelling aspects. Our parent company also employs a multitude of game developers, so we can even help you with other aspects of your game, like coding and porting.
