This is the process that I followed to create Stars Nya’s animated Power Ups.
I had the design very clear in my mind, this time I made it in 3D without a previous sketch.
I applied a green transparent material with transparency for the circle, and opaque materials for the borderds and cross. I tested it with different materials and render effects, more and less cartoony-cellshaded, It looked nice, but it looked a little boring.
Finally I rendered the animation with simple materials and black edges. I tested to repaint one frame in Photoshop.
I liked the repainted version, then I edited all the frames in Photoshop to make it look more Cartoony.
3D Render animated
Final version animated Yay!
We hope you enjoy it and be sure to check back for more updates!
