SNEAK PEEK - Valiard Animated Trailer by The-Ez SNEAK PEEK - Valiard Animated Trailer by The-Ez
Hi, guys! :wave:

Here's a little treat for those of you who have been closely following the production of the animated trailer for The Valiard Mansion®. The trailer is being animated the old-fashioned way, frame by frame, following many of the same steps used to create all our favourite 2D classics. 

:bulletpink: We're still looking for talented animators, inbetweeners, and cleanup artists! :bulletpink: You don't need any animation experience to inbetween or clean up — just be able to draw the characters and you're in!
Visit www.TheValiardMansion.com for info on how to apply!

:bulletorange: CREDITS :bulletorange:

I would love to help, but I feel so embarrassed.
I contacted them, then shortly got incredibly busy at work, and then I felt too ashamed to respond after the delay O<-< you guys probably want me 

best of luck on finding artists...!

Wow this is amazing! The inbetween is so smooth! If I worked more on my animation skill I'd love to try and help out, though currently I'm sure there's not much I can do. Still, I have the opportunity page bookmarked. salmon heart bullet

This is amazing. QwQ I saved this file(and of coarse I save my favourite arts~), but the name changed to its original title to "longest_giffu_ever_by_the_ez". It's just funny to me.  :icononionxdplz:

Yeah, hey, we do need a lot of help still! So please apply if you can! :D 

Your drawing style is a far cry from the Disney style of the project, but if you can copy styles well, then you'll make the cut, no problem. Maybe draw one of my characters as accurately as you can and send that in with your application. That'll improve your chances significantly.

Let me know if you have any more questions. :)

Yeah, there's a resurgence of 2D animation going on in little pockets all over the world. Not sure if it'll be a commercially viable medium ever again, but it won't die out amongst us enthusiasts. :D

Thanks for your support! :aww: :heart:

*gasps* That’s looking more and more awesome already!
I’m too slow at animation to apply for that job I suppose, but I’d love to be part of the cleanup and/or inbetweening gang… I’ll make sure to apply sooner or later! Bless you for putting up such a late deadline – I’m gonna need it, because I seriously have too many things on my plate to assure that I’ll be able to create new art for the application! I’ll see whether I can at least try my hands at a few fanart sketches of your lovely characters, though.

The-Ez Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2017  Professional General Artist
Well, you're definitely the sort of talent we're looking for, so we wouldn't show you the door if you ever applied to be a part of Team Valiard! :D

I'd personally love to have you on the Inbetweening crew if you're ever up for it. You're skilled at drawing anatomy and we definitely need folks who can take some initiative with poses and expressions working in Inbetweening.

But no pressure. It's volunteer work — at best it's an unpaid internship for your resume, though the studio offers college credit if that's applicable, and you'll be fully credited for your work. But ah, it's still unpaid, so I'd totally understand if you gave it a skip. :aww:

No matter whether you apply or not, it's cool having you follow the project. Thanks so much for your support! :D :heart:

Toradh Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2017  Professional Traditional Artist
Ahhh, now that was quick! And I was prepared to send you a portfolio or something, it just didn’t have time yet, gah…!
I’m not studying, but if I do end up somehow scraping together the time to join you, I’d love to learn from the more experienced people in animation business, and something like my name appearing somewhere would be amazing because then I’d have a reference for future employers.
…Now, let's stop dreaming, I’ll definitely try to scribble at least a few of your lovely characters for you, it'll just take some time because paid work and getting new paid work is still a top priority, unfortunately.

So glad you like my works, though! I’ll get back to it!

Ah, Lulu, don't worry! I know your busy with your studies. ;) You've got bigger fish to fry. No pressure.

That being said, it would be an honour having you on Team Valiard. Whenever and if ever you're ready to join, you'd be very welcome. :glomp:
