BettyOpera's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Film & Animation
I am a Dutch animator currently based in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
After studying and graduating from the Grafisch Lyceum Rotterdam I decided to pursue my dream of becoming an awesome animator by furthering my studies at the Willem de Kooning Academie, also in Rotterdam.

Over these past few years I've been able develop my knowledge and skills in the field of animation, experiment with different techniques and explore the different areas within animation, whilst also broadening my knowledge of art in general.

I've focused myself on 2d (character) animation, motion graphics, visual effects for film and television and have had the occasional fling with 3d animation. Right now I am focusing more on video effects and compositing, but 2d aniamtion will always be my first love.

Thank you very much for the invitation, but as a brand-spanking-new freelancer I'm going to need all my time for acquisition, payed work, administration and...taxes...goodie :)

You're very welcome, I think it's gorgeous. I'm trying to improve my own graphite skills right now..needed some inspiration.

Thank you! =)
Good luck! Graphite can be a bit tricky, but it's fun once you've got the hang of it (although sometimes certain items can be a bit tedious =P). There are some tutorials in my gallery as well, if you're looking for tips. =) But your animation is fabulous, so I'm sure you'll have no trouble mastering graphite. =D

je filpjes zijn geweldig!!!! hoe veel tekeningetjes heb je wel niet nodig gehad voor "a animation of man"?!?

Dankjewel :D In de eindversie zitten ongeveer 850 tekeningen, maar daar zijn heel wat tests aan vooraf gegaan...

He said, 'I like your animation about cats, they look so real.' I take spanish, and that's what he said.
