How did Wayne create the grasshoper jumps sound ?

Some explanations concerning the shadows :
Main Color layer and Shadow-A layer… Done!

Next, I need to paint in the shadow-B layer that gets cast on grasshopper’s back.

It was fun experimenting with the different tools in TV Paint’s FX Stack to create the first part of the shadow. A couple people have asked how I’m making the shadow so here’s a brief breakdown…

There’s probably better ways to do this but here’s what was used if anyone is interested:

Image

1) Duplicated the Color layer for the shadow shape.

2) "Perspective:4Points": Used this to flip the shape vertically and stretch the image across the ground. Also used the center point to re-register the shadow shape to the character.

3) "Color Adjust": Adjusted the brightness to turn the image black.

4) "Histogram": The black silhouette appeared slightly yellow against the BG plate. Used histogram to make the shadow slightly purple.

5) “Fade”: Used this to key the opacity to make the shadow semi-transparent.

6) "Center Blur": Used to blur the farthest edge of the shadow more while keeping the origin (foot contact) sharper.

7) "Gaussian Blur": Used to add overall blur especially when the character is farther from the ground (on the grasshopper).

One thing I’d like to figure out is to see if there’s a setting to make the semi-transparent artificial shadow not be additive, or darker, when overlapping the real shadow cast by the grasshopper.

This is great.
The grasshopper's jump sounds like just a simple mouse click.

Hi guys! I was browsing your forum and found this thread. Chad, it was nice talking to you at CTN! Thanks again for the TVP demo. I'm loving TVP! I might ask you guys a few more questions once I familiarize myself a little more with the forums. :)

Cheers!

All artwork was created using TV Paint 10.5 Pro on my Microsoft Surface Pro 2 over several months in my spare time."
