A few people asked me for pictures of my gif making set-up and what software I used. I don’t do everything the same way. The easiest way is to take a series of photos with my camera or phone and then open them in photoshop and make them into a gif with the Photoshop animation thing. I do this with 2D animations too with scanned pieces of paper rather than photos.
The software that I sometimes use is “Boinx iStopMotion” (that’s what I’m using in the photo). I have a Nikon D3100 plugged into it (before I had this camera I used to use a webcam). It’s easier to animate with iStopMotion because it has onion skinning so you can see the previous frame at the same time as the new frame. I think any animation software you can find would have this feature.
What else can I tell you? The “set” is just some pieces of coloured card. The background piece of pink card is leaning against some heavy things and also blu-tacked to them so it won’t move. Everything is blu-tacked in place (including the camera which is blu-tacked to that pink sketchbook and the sketchbook is blu-tacked to the table).
If you want to try making stop-motion gifs I would suggest getting a gif making app and film it with your phone. Just make sure you fix your phone in place (with blu-tack if you like) so that it doesn’t move while you take the photos).

Hooray! I’ve really enjoyed taking requests for the last couple of days. Thank you so much for sending suggestions to me. I wish I could have made them all!
Look at #request philippa to see all the requests I managed to do.

This is the last one I’m doing tonight but I’ll do more tomorrow. Thanks so much for all the requests!

I’ve had quite a few goat related requests. They must be on trend. I’m not sure if these even look like goats but I tried!

I’m taking some requests tonight and tomorrow as a treat after moving house. Send me requests in the ask box.
