Looks awesome. When can we see the finished product? We already missed you on Boondocks' final season! (not that it sucked or nuthin'. Just no LeSean!)

I know you must get this a lot but..

Could you possibly explain how something like this works?.. like, what's all the outlines and markers mean to an animator or peoples you work with in other departments when you're transferring the works between each other?

I'm asking because I'd love to know how the animation process works with you guys.

I'm looking into doing my own ish productions in some future.

:)

I've animated lots of things but mostly in 2D for fun and 3D for work, but not professionally in 2D, what program(s) do you use to clean up a frame when you have it at this point?

So I've been watchin the animator's survival kit video. Maybe he hasn't gotten to this light effects callout thing yet. But I know I've seen it in all my Animation production books and pics. Of course they are all anime so hard to read up on the technique. Is there somewhere online or in english I can read about this technique. Google is not my friend today. I believe I get the jist of it. I just want to be sure I understand how it works. Looks to me like it's based off of darks, shadows and mid-tones in order to separate the colors evenly per cel. Kinda like separating colors of cmyk and pms for pre-press printing. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

From what I understand this method is mostly done overseas and on anime style productions (but I could be wrong!) - R and handled differently in western traditional animation on feature films and so Richard William's Animator's Survival Kit is not probably going to cover it. He's going to primarily concentrate just on animation itself. Lighting and shadowing is the purview of the SFX departments in traditional animation done in house in the states and those are rarely covered in the various 'how to' books out there. I've rarely seen proper tone mattes covered before or even how to do cleanup animation. Try and get your hands on some art of books of some traditional animation films like The Tarzan Chronicles by Glen Keane or the Art of the Prince of Egypt, if you can find it. Anyway I may be misinformed but I've only ever seen the above sort of drawing done overseas. :)

Correct. It's strictly anime style choice indication. Also, my animation director worked at MAD HOUSE and AIC for years. :-)

Yeesh and how can I even comment on this thread without saying how awesome the above key drawing is. Yes, indeed, it is awesome. When are we getting a third artbook, by the way? :D

Thanx for the input. My search will continue.
And yeah, I kinda figured it was an "over-the-seas" only type thing, but I was hoping not, especially since this day in age we seem to imitate those things that work over there over here.

I have no idea what CB Production Notes are but a couple things come to mind:
The Boondocks is a kick ass show
These notes are beautiful
At least you attempted with some notes
