Why Our Character Animation Studio?

ONLY HIGH-QUALITY Character Animations

We are perfectionists by nature and can’t even deliver a bad character animation even if asked to! An ugly animation annoys our brains more than you 😀
Several times, a client was happy with a piece of art, but we were not, so we designed it again from scratch at our own expense.

We welcome changes and criticism, and we are as flexible as possible when it comes to implementing revisions. However, as professionals, we will express our opinions and provide our advice. Ultimately, the decision-making lies with you.

You will be constantly updated to share your comments, apply any changes to the animation, and ensure we are on the right track. An exclusive account manager will be allotted to your project who will manage our effective communications. They respond to messages quickly, are always available, on-call, and ready to jump on a meeting with you, even on weekends.

You may have experienced situations where delegating a project has resulted in both time and cost wastage, with a failed outcome. That’s not the case here. We will take full responsibility to ensure that the desired outcome is achieved once and for all.

BETTER THAN THE REFERENCE

The quality of the art received was really impressive after the team came up with ideas and improvements all the time for the characters. Being timely and attentive to details is great but their passion and involvement in our project were amazing! We will surely collaborate again. The team is very passionate and we were amazed when we got the final result which was better than the reference we provided, a reference that we really liked. I can say that we loved their work and that they are able to take an idea and bring it to life thanks to the passion they are working with and the perfect communication they are providing until the best result is reached.

HIGHLY COOPERATIVE PEOPLE

The Pixune team is full of kind, excellent, considerate, empathetic, talented, and highly cooperative people. The quality of the work that was received was outstanding, however it did take multiple iterations to reach that level. Some instructions were missed, but were fixed - it just lengthened the process and the schedule.

SURELY COME BACK AGAIN

This guy did really good work, he really did amazing art and even after the artist finished he wasn't happy with it so he did it all over again from scratch. I really recommend him and will surely come back again. (this is already the second time)

THE END RESULT WAS WORTH

This was a great experience overall. He took time to actually understand what was needed to deliver the project that I was asking for. Modelers tend to rush because they think they know what the client want, but Pixune went over to clarify the specifics. It required a little more time than we agreed on. However, the end results was worth an extra few days. Trust me...it's worth waiting a few more days, than to have something you don't like at the end. I highly recommend to anybody reading this review. And I look forward working with Pixune again. Thank You!

Our character animation creative process involves identifying your unique needs to have a deep understanding of your project, setting deadlines, character modeling, texturing, rigging, and skinning. Then, we bring them to life frame-by-frame through expert animation.

There are 4 logical reasons for you to consider outsourcing character animation:

  • Saving Money and Time: Creating animations requires an experienced team across many roles like concept artists, modelers, animators, art directors, art leads, etc., and hiring them in-house has challenges. Character animation companies house all the expertise necessary to bring a client’s vision to life efficiently, speedily, and cost-effectively.
  • Creativity: Have you ever considered that you can outsource creativity, too? Apple partnered with Hovey-Kelley for creative ideas when inventing the mouse. Character animation studios thrive on imagination.
  • Quality: Practice makes perfect. Character animation outsourcing companies produce countless character animations, constantly honing skills and staying current on gaming industry trends and tools. Their experience enables high-quality animation services delivery without wasted time or budget.
  • Scalability: Expanding the character animation creation scale requires growing your animation team. That’s challenging in-house but not for a character animation outsourcing partner with access to more character animators. A character animation agency maintains larger talent pools and connections to scale up readily.

There are 4 criteria for picking the best character animation studio:

  • Portfolio: A character animation studio’s expertise is showcased via its breathtaking art portfolio, and nothing tells better what they are capable of than its past works.
  • Reviews: Read their reviews online and see what their past clients think of them. The most honest on-hand thing you can find in the best character animation companies is their online reviews.
  • Communication: First impressions matter – especially when it comes to communication. If they’re slow to respond or just plain rude from the get-go, imagine how it’ll be once they have your money! Trust your gut and work with people who make you feel good.
  • Time and Budget Compatibility: After all, you might find the best character animation studios in the world, but your time schedule and/or money budget do not meet their demands. Find a character animation outsourcing partner that meets all the previous characteristics as well as your budget and schedule.
  1. Personality: Every gesture and expression should reflect who the character is. Imagine if Disney princesses act like Spong Bob and Patrik. As we can see, they have unique personalities and manners, which makes them great.
  2. Exaggeration: Exaggerating certain motions and poses makes characters more dynamic and attractive. But it must be balanced with subtler, realistic CGI acting as well. In Tom & Jerry, the cat Tom is a great example of applying exaggeration to character animation.
  3. Creativity: Animators can bring memorable characters to life with unique, unexpected, and playful animation choices. Genie in Disney’s Aladdin displays an incredible range of imaginative, over-the-top shapeshifting and acting.
  4. Story Relevance: Each movement and expression of the animation should work to advance the narrative or convey information. Can you remember the old man in Up? At first, his expressions are downtrodden and muted. When the adventure started, his expression became more lively and youthful.
We take advantage of computer software such as Autodesk Maya, Blender, 3Ds Max, Unity, Unreal Engine, Houdini, and Cinema 4D.
