This is a video done by me, using pencil-drawn images to create an animation as close as Bleach's 12th Opening. As it is pencil-drawn, the sketchy-papery feeling is maintained and it will be black and white.

Inspired by Teh777's Maple Bleach [Opening 12] video. This short animation clip is done using my own pencil drawings/sketches and photoshopped images only. I don't have a tablet, so I drew on paper and scanned them in. It was really tedious that way, but oh well. The whole animation was done by myself with the help of the following items.

Canon Pixma MP150 (Scanner)

Adobe Photoshop CS5
Adobe Flash CS5
SonyVegas (thanks to Teh777)

NagelSeries' Clouds Photoshop Brushes [Free]

Time Taken To Complete: 2 weeks+
Animation Speed: 12 FPS
Total Animation Frames: 1101
Actual Pencil Drawn Frames: 235

WNx Homestay is a comic created by me. All characters designed in the comic are based on real-life characters who played CabalSEA who are in the WarriorNation guild a couple of years back. Character designs may have similarity to other people's designs as they were all very simple shapes which can be learned almost anywhere. WNx stands for WarriorNation. Please go to this link for more information about the comic.


It is clearly stated that this animation clip is done based on Bleach's 12th Opening with WNx Homestay Comic characters. The comic strips can be seen/found at my blog here.
