portrait of my friend done with prismacolor soft cores. it looks grainy because i had to edit it to get back as close to the original colors as i could before the scanner lightened it.

“My favorite story out of this is Malia, when she was 4, she had a little dance thing. Well, Michelle was gone that weekend so I’m taking her to ballet. And I get her in her little leotard and her little stuff. I did her hair, put it in a little bun.
We get to the dance studio and one of the mothers there right away comes up to Malia – she thinks she’s out of earshot of me and she says, ‘Sweetie, do you want me to redo your hair?’ And Malia who’s 4 says, ‘Yes please, this is a disaster’. You know, she didn’t want to hurt daddy’s feelings.”

Hello there, wonderful work with your art! I was wondering if you could tell me how exactly you animate the moving text on your comic? I've seen it done a couple times now and I'm very curious to know how it is done. C:

aha its a pretty lazy process but hell yeah lets go

first up im using photoshop, so although the steps are probably pretty similar in other drawing programs, they might not transfer exactly like this

image

youll want to make three different layers at first, one for the message or writing youre trying to animate

image

then go ahead and write whatever you want on that first layer. THEN, set the opacity of that one to about thirty or so

image

, and on the layer right above it, just write the same thing right over the top of it. its alright if the lines dont match up EXACTLY, but youll obviously want to try to get it pretty close

image

do this once more, until three separate layers have the same message message written in mostly the same way

image

then theres probably a way around this, but i just bring it to image ready, where i can actually save it as a working gif

image

then the animation ! youll have one frame per layer, each one set at however fast youll want them to change - i usually set them at 0.2 but you can mess with it until it looks the way you want

image

THIS is what youre going to click to save it, instead of just save - otherwise it wont set it as an actual gif

image

you did it

There you go :>

there it is theres the way around that
