I am half of Duo Cartoonist, and we are creating new tools and techniques to make cartoons better and faster through our Patreon. Of course this involves making lots of cartoons.

We release 80% of our content for free. But if you want a VIP access, new tools and techniques that will allow you to make your art faster and with far less heartache, we'd like to welcome you in our little Patreon community.


Do you remember “Space Jam” ? It may not been the best movie  ever,

but it had something fascinating hidden inside, and that is LUMO.


LUMO was, back then, a new computer based system.

It  allowed to shade cartoons in a way that looked almost like

“Who

Framed Roger Rabbit”, only that it no longer required ultra fancy

equipment, plus the postpro crew stopped tearing off their clothes in

despair.


Now fast forward till 2016, and picture

Spirit’s determined face, while looking at that old 90’s concept of

automation and promising herself shel’ll never shade a toon manually

again, like she did last week.



Shading takes

forever! it slows down the process of getting a finished piece

exponentially, for you and for me!. Just imagine, two clicks, and your

character would be ready to be published. No eternal CTRL Z, no extra

drop of sweat.


We  definitely didn’t want to use carding for Moon Rises, so that did it for us.

Half

an hour later we managed to replicate LUMO In Photoshop,  controlling

the light direction with just  1 slider, but it wasn’t enough, because

generating the map was too complicated.


So fast forward two days and we created something new. Two systems for

illuminating a character, one for animation, one for illustration, which we

called “ROGER”. So with just a few clicks in photoshop , you get this:


NEXT SHARING SATURDAY: EXPLORING ROGER. A WHOLE NEW WORLD

If you wish to learn more about LUMO, you can check this link here. If you

find a way of generating those exact normal maps, contact us! we’ll love to see.

140.118.9.222/stan/www/paper/2…


Patrons $10 and above will get the PSD of the LUMO replication system, so  they can play with it, plus the ROGER system next week, which we won't release anywhere else.
