Worthy Animation #4 – Walter Mazoyer

Walter Mazoyer is french. His passion style is Anime. If you don’t believe me, then watch this incredible rough pencil test of a super-powered heroine battling a giant shapeshifter.

If you’re working on a 2D film that requires a few effects, then these Avatar pages are just for you. This was posted 2 years ago on a site dedicated to hosting all of the greatest effects animation tips and pieces that exist on the internet to date. In addition to the Avatar guide, I’ll also leave a downloadable link to the 207 page pdf full of effects animation notes that Ron Doucet (TV animation director, 14 years of experience) scanned throughout his career.
