Hand Drawn Animation

Many animated videos nowadays rely upon computer generated images and software for their impact – but Dragonfly haven’t lost sight of the magic that traditional animation can offer. The hand drawn line is something much more personal than those rendered on a computer screen, and more unique. In spite of its flaws and quirks, or perhaps precisely because of them, it tantalises our minds like nothing else.

Traditional 2d animation can be fun, quirky and humorous – but it can also be sad, touching and poignant. We can show you how to explore the full spectrum of emotions, and do it in a way that no one else has done before.

The Process

Beautiful, nostalgic and intricate animations often come out of a hand drawn process.

This process is obviously incredibly time consuming; an animator will draw all the assets and every frame by hand. This can be a long and pain-staking process, demanding a huge amount of time and a high level of skill from an animator.

For this reason, hand drawn animations don’t come cheap – or fast. However, if you’re willing to part with the cash and invest your time, hand drawn animations are often some of the most beautiful and striking out there.

What else can our animators do?

We’ve got access to some of the best artists working in animation today. If you don’t need a fully animated video producing, they can still be very useful people to have on your project. Here’s some other ways they can help your business.

Conceptualisation.

Our guys are artists, they’ve based their whole careers on their ability to come up with creative ideas and make them real. If you need concept art, or you want to come up with a visual look for a product or design, let us imagine it with you.

Storyboarding

If you’re putting together a production, with us or on your own, being able to effectively storyboard your ideas is key to your success. Our artists have the skill to clearly and creatively show off your script and make sure everyone is working on the same page.

Character design

Some of the strongest campaigns are based around a great character, whether it’s Ronald McDonald or an Olympic mascot. If your company is thinking of creating a fictional spokesperson we can design it and help to make it one that people will love.

A world without limits

Dragonfly’s animators are artists in the truest sense of the word – they live and breathe in the pursuit of creating beautiful pieces of art that stop audiences in their tracks. There’s nothing more captivating than a truly fascinating painting, and there’s no better way to capture your viewers’ imaginations than through a hand drawn production.

With a whole world to play with the only limit is your creativity. You can bring unique characters to life, construct an entire universe complete with its own physics, create a species of bizarre creatures – or just show everyone how great the world we live in can be.

``When you work with Dragonfly, you get a creative ally, helping you rise above the rest.``
