Thanks again for your support and trust.
This update will introduce our Flipbook reward in more detail. Firstly, I want to remind you this video of the flipbook. I think it’s the best introduction to it. If you like it in the video, it is even better in person.
You can see the story of the animation in the video. It tells the story of Princess Luna's grief over the MelodicPony's passing. In memory of the joy, beauty and thoughts the tones of his music bring to the lives of others, she made his legacy shine eternally on the night sky.
The book will have 200 pages, with size of 10,5 x 14,8 cm (4,1 x 5,8 inches). But moving on from these technical informations. I would like to tell you about more behind the scene informations regarding the flipbook and the animation itself.
Book that was shown in the video is a few year-old test print, which went through rough handling over the years as is well visible on the cover. The final version will have laminated cover, which means that it will be a lot more difficult to damage your book via regular usage, so this shouldn’t happen to your flipbooks.
Another thing I want to mention is the colors. In the final print, the colors will be looking better with bigger contrast. Here you can see a comparison of how the picture looks in the printed book and compare it with original digital image. The result will be closer to the digital image on the right, though still not exactly the same. This is due to the test print not having properly prepared colors for the printer, which was fixed.
One last thing I would like to show you is shading. Here you can see the original image without shading and compare it with the shaded image. This shading was a bit inspired by the style used in DuoCartoonist animation Children of the night.
I hope this gives you a bit behind the scene look of how the flipbook was made. I hope that you will enjoy the finished books in your hands.
Thanks for your support.
