Rough Head Test Using FreeForm Pro for After Effects
This is a really rough test of a character head I am working on for an upcoming animation. I painted his pieces in Photoshop and used FreeForm Pro for After Effects CS5 to get the head to be rounded. I am building a tutorial based on the process required to do this right now.
The face has a lot of stuff going on using the puppet tool mixed with Free Form to make it expressive. The mouth and eyes are hand animated and used on the face as a nested composition….I haven’t animated the pupils yet and the animation is super STIFF, but it is just a test.
