With being stuck inside and unable to go out, this seems like the perfect time to try out something new. I have been wanting to learn how to animate so the short film idea I have for Fulgrim dancing to Staying Alive can be met. It’s a small dream perhaps, and definitely a silly one, but it is what it is.
So, I did a bit of research into available free software and I went for a program called Plastic Animation Paper – Or PAP4 for short. It came with free tutorials and seeing how I know nothing about animation, I thought that was a good idea.
I read through the first lesson, which was about familiarising myself with the software’s UI, and then went straight into the second. More was taught about the UI, and I managed to create a small sequence using what it told me. Here it is:
This is a very simple one I know, but I am so very proud of myself for it. For those of you who do not know of my comics, this is a simplified Perturabo doing something he would never ever do.

Next I am going to try and make one of Abaddon walking. It will not be simple but it should be fun!
