CLEAN UP ARTIST:-HOW TODRAW AND CLEANClean-up animation is the process of creatingthe final drawings you see in the finished film.Clean-up is generally done on a new sheet ofpaper.
They can be done on the same sheet as the rough animation if this wasdone with a “non-copy blue” pencil. This certain tone of blue will beinvisible for photocopying machines or grayscale scanners, wherethe finished animation will be transferred into a computer for furtherprocessing. CleanupProcess This is almost every clean-up artist’s ideal scenario, towork with a great animator who draws on model and leaves very little open tointerpretation. It lets the clean up artist know exactly what the animator wants,and it changes their approach to how any clean-up artist handles the scene.
The ProcessFor cleaning-up a Rough in the clean-upprocess, we take the key drawings (‘keys’) that are often roughly drawn andtrace out a good version with one solid line. Rough key drawings are also knownas ruffs. Weusually start with a model sheet that shows exactly how to draw the characterfrom many angles. Placing a clean sheet of paper over a rough key drawing(ruff) we trace over the drawing in one neat line, producing a finished versionof the drawing. A number of different animators may work on the same characterin an animation.
With all the varying styles that these animators have, it isnecessary to add a step to the process that makes the character drawings lookthe same. That step is called clean-up. The clean-up department is responsiblefor bringing all of the drawings back to the original specifications of themodel sheet, making it look as if each character is drawn by one animator, notby many people.
Traditionally cleanup was done manually.Now we work on computers, which give us the accurate output of animation. Withgood knowledge of animation and tracing, any clean up artist can perform wellin clean up while using the computer.Cleanup Process performed by clean up artist in Adobe Flash 01 Aftercompleting the sketch on light box animator convert the rough animation intodigital frames by any digital camera or scanner and give it to the clean upartist for further processing.
