Vraiment superbe !

Quelle est la part d'utilisation de Gimp dans tout ça ?
Est-ce un seul fichier .ora ou bien 10 fichiers distincts (1 pour chaque étape) ?

So funny and... (avec l'accent) "typiquement féminin." Bravo pour cette superbe planche que j'ai aussitôt partagée sur Facebook. On en veut d'autres ;-)

  David REVOY

@Philippe : Merci pour le partage et pour les autres , j'y travail ;)

@flem : Je ferais peut-être un petit 'making-of' si je trouve un après-midi pour ça car c'est pas évident de l'expliquer en texte, mais en gros :
- J'ai utilisé Gimp pour sketcher les silhouettes en basse définition , puisque j'aime la capacité de découper / réduire / agrandir / déformer les personnages. Avec ça j'ai donc eu mon storyboard complet et mis en page.
- Ensuite, j'ai agrandi l'image pour passer en haute résolution et enregistré en *.ora avec le plugin d'export en ora ; et sous Mypaint j'ai affiné les silhouettes du storyboard pour les expressions. J'ai 'encré' sur un calque au dessus.
- Là j'ai repris Gimp avec un nouveau document ou j'ai fait un speedpainting ( des tâches de couleurs ) pour trouver ma palette.
- Sous Gimp, j'ai ouvert mon encrage, et j'ai fait le fond coloré que j'ai pu répéter par copier coller sur chaque cases.
- Enfin sous Mypaint j'ai fini la colorisation jusqu'a son point final.
Gimp m'a permis de réduire et aplatir l'image en 700px de large.

@Emmanuelle & @DeburgER : Thanks !

Merci David pour ces explications détaillées.
C'est très dommage que MyPaint ne possède aucune fonction de découpage / réduction / agrandissement / déformation et qu'il faille sans arrêt faire la navette avec Gimp...

Tu parlais de Krita pour remplacer tout ça. Est-ce vraiment réaliste à court terme ?

  David REVOY

@flem : A court terme ( admettons pour la rentrée ), non. Sur le long terme ( dans 2 ou 3 ans ) ; certainement.
Niveau outils de manipulation ( découpe / deformations ) Gimp 2.6 (et+) surpasse Krita. Krita est intéressant pour ses moteurs de brosses , varié et véloces. La fonction symétrie/kaléidoscope, le CMJN , l'arrivé prochaine de la compatibilité photoshop du format PSD lui seront un gros avantage sur le long terme. Mais encore pas mal petit bug assez dérangeant atteigne la version principale en développement pour parler d'outil de production stable. Donc, je pense qu'a Noël , j'utiliserai toujours un mix des trois. La prochaine grosse différence sera surement que j'abandonnerai le fork Gimp-painter pour la prochaine version de Gimp ( si celle ci sort au publique avant 2012 ) ; avec Mypaint et Krita qui on déjà un équivalent de 'mixbrush', ça devrait me suffire.
