What We’re Looking For

We're looking for After Effects templates of all kinds created in a hand drawn style.  And not just elements that are hand drawn, but great use of animations and effects that help the project feel hand drawn as well.

Here's some examples of existing hand drawn items in the style we're looking for:


But don't let your creativity stop there!  We're eager to see what kinds of new and exciting hand drawn projects you come up with next :)

Hi! I have a question! “Hand Drawn” style should be 100% After Effects (shapes or vector)? Or may be used a real hand-drawn techniques, not After Effects… as it was in my project. There all hand-drawn elements it was is rendered in Quicktime + Alpha… http://videohive.net/item/whiteboard-explainer-cartoon-toolkit/8987314 ?

Hey FlicFlac, ideally your template items will be as editable/customizable as possible, but if your After Effects project uses some rendered elements that’s perfectly okay here, as long as the project has a hand drawn style :slight_smile:

However items made only of rendered motion graphics clips should be submitted to the Motion Graphics category, and wouldn’t be eligible for this particular event.

Yes, something that has a hand painted look would count as well.

Thanks, EricSchwartz. I already have an idea for new project. I make character animation AE tool kit with design settings and hand-drawn stylization. That is, there will be present twists and facial expressions (frame by frame imitation). But in your examples of existing hand drawn there is only sketch style. Will be approach this contest a not sketch style, but classical frame by frame animation stylisation? Thanks!
