@Gloria_Oldenpinner Text version will work, thanks!
Animators, I should have character reference sheets out before the 23rd. In the meantime, would the following people post their signature outfits here as references for the characters' outfits:
@Kieran_Candleview1 @Iliara_Mustardtop @Jacoby_Elderfun1@Hans_Oddcraft@Ariella_Newheart@Hanna_Brassheart@Ilayne_Merespark@Aislinn_Mollisong1@Emily_Purplebottle
Please and thank you!
@Jane_Gogglerubble I was going to go in game right now to take a picture, but my server isn't working. However, I do have a picture.
This is my signature with my red and gold gear mask (which is optional)
@Ilayne_Merespark Game isn’t working for me either. (It’s broken-hearted because Goku left... ) @Jane_Gogglerubble
@Jane_GogglerubbleOk. I'm going to start now.
Is this correct? So scenes 1-2 will be the same and you will add the characters.Scenes 3-6 will also be the same.7-8 are a little different from 3-6?9-12 will be the same as 3-6.
Is that right?
I'm not sure what my signature outfit is...
Most likely the first one since Elm's signature is the Coat Tails Suit.
And I really like the Faux Fox Finery anyway.
@Jane_GogglerubbleI decided to use Scratch because I can't figure out how to link my project from Khan Academy. Just need to learn how to use it and I will have it ready.
Awesome! Let me know if you need help, I know a lot about Scratch.
Btw, DO NOT USE BITMAP. Make sure to turn everything into vector so that you can reshape the shapes to make the scenes.

Hey animators! This is a guide of how to draw the base of the characters! The rest of the character reference sheets will still be posted as soon as I can finish them, but I thought I'd go ahead and post this along with Raven's. Let me know if these are helpful!
3 circles form the head and torso. A curved cross on the 1st circle shows where the face will be. 2 smaller circles on the 2nd circle form the shoulders. 2 ovals on the 3rd circle form the hips. Lines are used for the arms, legs, and feet. Small circles are used for the elbows, knees, and hands. The figure should be 6-7 circles or heads tall for an adolescent, and 7 circles or heads tall for an adult (as shown).
Create another layer, and trace the figure as shown in the picture. Add details like ears, hair, and clothes. Straight(ish) lines are used for the arms and legs. Curves are used for the head and torso. Hands and feet are a mixture of the two.
Delete the first layer or erase the red sketch, leaving only the blue sketch.
Hands: Draw a circle and a square. Create another layer, and trace as shown in the picture. Add fingers and a thumb. Delete the first layer or erase the red sketch, leaving only the blue sketch. This is a great guide for drawing hands!
Raven Character Model:
Rough sketch using base (this is what the animators will be drawing).
Color (adding eyes, eyebrows, and patterns)
How do you create a gif file?
@Zander_Eldercraft By using this website, or another like it.
Trinian Character Model:
@Jane_GogglerubbleDon't you think that that outfit looks a little, um, girly? Not the outfit, but just the way it looks. Maybe another shade of purple? I don't know, maybe it's just me.
I was thinking that, too. The color might be changed, or the outfit itself. What does the boys' version of the coat tails suit look like? Maybe someone could post it....
@Jane_GogglerubbleLike @Ariella_Newheart said, sorry to be picky, but I think we should switch all clothes to a boy or a girl character. For instance, Raven. In my opinion, she would look better in the girl's Shepherd Watch outfit.
I can get all the guys outfits if we do decide to do this.
@Jacoby_Elderfun1 @Ariella_Newheart Thanks for the honest feedback! I had tried to make the outfits suit their genders, but I agree.
I can either switch the outfits to the right genders, or if we want to find the girl/boy versions , we'll need reference photos for:Girl version of Jacoby's outfitGirl version of Kieran's outfit
