About Course

Clean up inking and color 201 online course is part of a series of courses designed for our diploma program.

Clean-up animation is the process of creating the final drawings you see in the finished film. It does not necessarily mean a “clean” fine line. The artist, usually a team of artists, uses key drawings and animation charts from the animator, making it appear as though one artist has created the whole film. The clean-up artists will follow the intentions of the animators and stay true to performance and movement. On average clean-up usually takes twice as long as the rough animation pass because of the precision and extra drawings that are required to complete a shot.

Some of the topics covered in this course are:

  • Ink drawing not tracing
  • Contrast with inking
  • Practicing speed
  • Lyrical line quality
  • Inking rough pencil
