Mayshing

“Are you interested in helping out?”

You get to learn many things about the animation and manga creating process with our studio. From helping to freelancing!
A great place to start for beginners is as a colorist. Our coloring test can be found here.

Do I need art skills?

As a colorist you just need to have good eye and hand control in adding color, and being able to follow directions.

If you have better art skills you may consider trying out for the inker role. The inker does the linework seen in animation, as well as provides the linework that colorists add color on.

Inker work requires:

  • Consistent line control
  • Basic understanding of Animation
  • Intermediate understanding of Anatomy and Clothing
  • High familiarity with Character Designs
  • A ton of patience

Our inker test can be found here.

If you already have a good grasp of drawing you can consider trying out for the tweener or animation roles. You can find the tweening test here.

We are also looking for individuals with advanced coloring with light and shadows or background painting work.

Besides learning about animation, is there anything else?

We can provide you knowledge in our respective fields.
