Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Högskolan Väst/Avd för medier och design

Sammanfattning: This thesis examines the function of color in the design of a character and the scene of animated films and answers the question about color features in character and scene design as a separate animation principle, similar to the established 12 animation principles. The paper contains analysis about basic concepts of color and its visual perception, color theory and color psychology. The paper takes into consideration previous studies about color in physics, psychology and animation. The purpose of this study is to research the influence of the color on the plot perception in animation. The method of the study consists of comparing the statistics for correctness of recognition of the character's role and diegesis in the frame depending on the color change. Recognition correctness is established by conducting a blind survey of the representative sample of viewers. The survey is based on five sketches of the frame that use the same original drawing of the character's pose and different combinations of colors for the character and the background coloring. The following combinations of colors were used: warm color tones for the character and warm color tones for the background; warm for the character and cold for the background; cold for the character and warm for the background; warm for the character and warm for the background; uncolored character and uncolored background. Survey participants have assessed and identified different roles of the character and diegesis in each sketch of the frame based on the proposed five alternatives of the scene description according to the scenario idea. The results show that the effect of colors function was detected in all four colored sketches of the frame. The study confirms that all four combinations of color significantly increase the number of correct recognitions of all four roles of character in colored sketch of the frame compared to the uncolored sketch of the frame. This fact confirms the described hypothesis and emphasizes the effect of the color function which helps the viewer to interpret the design of the scene more clearly and to easily perceive the role of the character in colored sketch of the frame compared to the uncolored sketch.
