Rebelle Digital Watercolor Demo



Rebelle is something I've never used and didn't know about up until now. This video by a user speaks for itself. You can try the online version or download a demo, or purchase a full version which is very reasonably priced.

Face Expressions

A range of face poses for Miss Green. I apologize for melting your eyes with the choice of background color.

First Poses

I copied the bone rig from Yellow and used it on Green. It was easy to do. Got the face working like the other two characters, in that I can move it around the body, move the eyes and pupils independently of each other with everything being masked correctly (the most challenging aspect of these simple looking character designs).



  But no face expressions yet.

The Female Colors

This is 'Green', the third character in a group of four based on complementary colors. I'm only posting it because she took a short time to create so I feel I'm getting quicker with the vectors and masking in Anime Studio Pro. She's not rigged yet but I'll try re-using the bone rig from Yellow.

Some Poses.



I've gone in and fine tuned all the limbs with smart bone actions to fix any weird bending issues, so knocked out some quick poses, he'll be a strange character to animate because of his low hanging arms.

Mr Yellow

The second character (Yellow) rigged and ready (almost) for animation.

Look Development in After Effects

I animated some of the face expressions and added a lighting effect to the Red character. I exported a PNG sequence out of Anime Studio Pro and brought it into After Effects for some experiments with backgrounds and textures, trying to get a feel for a final look if I where to take this exercise further.
