The Christmas Hope

Tests and drafts that went towards a Short Animation about the Nativity that I created for a few friends who are Sunday School Teachers. After finding out that they couldn't do a Christmas Play because of 'Crown Disease' in 2021, we spent a few weeks putting this together.

It is the first time that I have animated anything for anybody - and because of the timeframe (and it being one person animating as much as possible), most of it is closer to a rough Storyboard than a full-on cartoon. Regardless, it was an opportunity to learn how to animate in Clip Studio Paint, as well as experiment with ways to go about finishing it, let alone making it as good as possible.
