Enjoyinglifeinseoul chose to feature his animation , saying...
Well, it took me some time to decide which of my animations to have featured. I considered some of my older ones like “Prince of Persia” or “Turtle Shell! Turtle Shell!” and the latest ones like “Demon Fire!” and “Witches of Misery!” In the end I went with “Witches of Misery” because most of the challenges and special techniques I had used in the others were covered the last time I was featured here.
Some fresh problems popped up this time and I thought that the solutions I came up with might help some of your readers. The other reason I choose this one, is because, I had so much fun making it from all aspects: The poem that the animation is based on, the characters themselves, the backgrounds and the flash props as well. I am also trying to get it published as a children’s book. Who knows maybe it will be seen here by a publisher.Watch Enjoyinglifeinseoul's animation below and then read about his inspiration and challenges in creating the video.
Witches of Misery by enjoyinglifeinseoul on GoAnimate
The inspiration behind this animation came from many places. The first is probably some images of witches I came upon over a year ago, that resulted in me thinking that it would be great to see an animation about them. But I was busy at the time, so I put the thoughts away.
The main challenge I encountered came from how I wanted to present each witches story. As theirs is a realm of magic I wanted each tale to reflect that visually. I didn’t just want the stories to be told with a regular scene. So I came up with the idea of each story being told/shown through one of their magical items; the mirror, crystal ball and cauldron.
