After teaching myself blender last November I hadn’t had a lot of opportunities to use it professionally. When freelance work dried up in March of this year I decided, “if not now, when?” 9 months later, I am proud to present the animated intro for my original web series: “Redline Ronin and The Seven Deadly Swords”
The short was created in blender 2.81 and TVPaint. It relies heavily on 2d techniques and NPR rendering inside blender’s native eevee real time render engine. Please check it out and enjoy!
