With the official creation of the LICHTWELTEN (light worlds) project, I automatically gained a hobby…
I am now a flower background remover. It’s really fun, very relaxing and calming, like doing a puzzle. And it went in a jiffy. Okay, but I think I also chose the easiest picture from my private photo collection to start with 😉
When the background of a single flower is made to disappear with the digital eraser, we can easily make it move in our 2D animation software.
With my Corel PaintShopPro’s Background Eraser, just an approximate brushstroke is enough to nudge away the pixels in the way with a mouse, trackball, or (super professionally) a simple graphics tablet. If the sensitivity value is set correctly, the closed line of the petal is automatically detected by the software. This really makes it easier.
In fact, with this first flower, cropping went so fast that I almost forgot to leave a small spot for this screenshot.
With each newly cropped image, the collection of supporting actors to be animated in the FloralWonderWorld movie grows.
Participating animators can transform these photos into new works of art using filters and effects, depending on their personal tastes and feelings, to use as animated theater backdrops or backgrounds.
Here is the finished PNG image for free use. To download, right-click on the link or the photo and choose Save Image As…
