After watching the NHK documentary about “Kokuriko zaka kara” I tried to make an animation using all the things I learned from this show and from my visit to studio Ghibli last year. Drawn the e-konte, layout, the background, and movement frames by hand, then colored it in Photoshop. You can see the result above (also contains the line-work and motion key-frames renders).
dude you rock
Did you animate this in Photoshop as well? It's very nice. LOVE Ghibli.
