QUILL SIGNATURE

My First Love was Animation Shop. It must be getting on for 4 years now that I have sat at this desk and tried to increase my knowledge of how Animation Shop works. I taught myself to do the writing signatures and eventually would spend hours at a time making up different signatures with all sorts of writing tools  for my Friends in Msn Groups. I will now attempt to pass some of that knowledge on to you I hope lol Grab yourself a cuppa , relax and enjoy it, it will take a bit of time to master it , its well worth it though, once you see the result :))

FIRST OF ALL OPEN ANIMATION SHOP AND HAVE YOUR POT AND QUILL OPEN

SET UP YOUR COLOUR PALETTE - I CHOSE A DARK BLUE TO GO WITH THE QUILL

GO TO FILE - NEW   I TYPED IN 300 X 300 - TRANSPARENT CHECKED

IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST TIME DOING A QUILL SIG I WOULD SUGGEST YOU USE A SMALL NAME TO START OFF WITH THREE LETTERS

 

 CLICK YOUR TEXT ICON TYPE IN YOUR LETTERS - I CHOSE A PLAIN FONT

HIGHLIGHT YOUR QUILL AND POT - GO TO EDIT - COPY

WITH YOUR NAME FRAME ACTIVE GO TO EDIT - PASTE INTO SELECTED FRAME  POSITION IT SO IT LINES UP WITH YOUR NAME - SEE BELOW

WITH ABOVE ACTIVE GO TO EDIT - DUPLICATE SELECTED YOU WILL NOW HAVE TWO FRAMES

CLICK ON YOUR ERASER ICON IM USING SIZE 5 TO ERASE THE QUILL

GO TO VIEW - STYLE BAR IF YOU DON'T SEE BELOW

ERASE ALL THE QUILL IN YOUR FIRST FRAME

USING YOUR ZOOM TOOL WILL ALLOW YOU TO SEE ANY STRAY PIXELS THAT ARE ABOUT

 GOING BACK TO ZOOM 1:1 WILL TAKE YOU IMAGE BACK TO ITS ORIGINAL SIZE

 YOUR PAN TOOL WILL TAKE YOU BACK TO BEING ABLE TOCLICK ANY ICON

ONCE THE QUILL IS ERASED HIGHLIGHT FRAME ONE -  WE NEED TO DUPLICATE IT

GO TO EDIT- DUPLICATED SELECTED   I CLICKED MINE 4 TIMES - THIS GAVE ME 17 FRAMES IN TOTAL FOR MY 3 LETTERED NAME

WE WILL BE STARTING IN FRAME 16 ( THE ONE BEFORE THE QUILL AND POT) AND WILL ALWAYS WORK BACK THE WAY

HIGHLIGHT YOUR QUILL AND GO TO EDIT - DUPLICATE - SELECTED  I CLICKED MINE FIVE TIMES GIVING ME 17 QUILLS
