Shadow Turn around by fire-tisane Shadow Turn around by fire-tisane
.:Edit:. Just wanted to see if I can make this smoother.
.:Edit:.Too fast, trying again...
.:Edit:. I'll leave it alone now... 8-8

Okay, so this is what I've been working on for so long. And it's only about half way done to be honest. Animation is a lot of work, more so than even I thought. I had to go back and redo some things and I took as many shortcuts as I could find but I at least learned a few things along the way. Won't make it any easier but at least I did learn something.

This was my first time doing animation by myself. I think I put more work into it than I should have but I didn't know it at the time. I'm learning this stuff on a trial by fire basis.

And what program do you use? Animation from photoshop?

Yep, the photoshop animation option. I sit there and work it frame by frame. Now that I know how to use the pen tool though, I should be able to make it look much nicer.

hahaha, well it did take like, 40 + frames of animation and that's why I say that I could've made it easier on myself. I was driven, but even at that I only finished about half of what I wanted to do.

Haha well, I can't say that i'm jealous of the animators... TOO much work for just little movements...

But isn't it wonderful when it all comes together? That's what drives me at least. I should learn flash.

I don't draw him much because I never really feel like drawing him. He's still part of the whole story though so it's not like he's gone.

I want to do more animation but remembering how long this one took.... yeeeeeeeeeah. I still want to do it again though. I need to aim for around 24 frames a second or something. Something nice.

Well, it's a GIF, so all you have to do is go into the control blocks and lessen the time allotted for each frame of the animation.:nod: You can use GifConstructionSet for something like that, but there may be other programs you like.:lol:

I'm practicing my animation. I think I've learned a few things with this so maybe the next time I can do it quicker and maybe smoother as well.

Lol I can just hear her saying "hi". You should deffinitaly add sound to this when it's done.

If I can find someone who can do a proper voice that does her justice, I would love to! Don't even ask what she would sound like because I would only know it if I heard it.

CatnipMafia Featured By Owner Mar 15, 2011
Hmm well I don't either. Stare at her face and start thinking of voices you know in your head and see if they are anything close?

:iconfire-tisane:
fire-tisane Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I already have a sort of voice in mind but it's not something I can describe. Describing sounds via words is like explaining colors to the blind. Besides that, I'm so inept in my knowledge of actors and actresses that it wouldn't help at all trying to use one as an example. I would need voice samples from girls willing to lend her a little life.

Aside from that, My knowledge of flash suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucks balls. That's a program I'll need to figure out eventually but right now, it's like staring at a brick wall with a time line at the bottom.

Well for her voice's personality, it's peppy and happy but not overly obnoxious like Vanil's is in FFXIII. I guess a sort of sarcastic tone is worked in there too. idk, If you're willing to send me something, go for it, I'd love to hear it.

Y'know this counts as 43 drawings right? You have my respect lol.

Great animation and cool use of motion blur there too.

hahahahaha holy crap, you caught the motion blur! You've my respect for a keen eye.

And yes, I am painfully aware that this counts as 43 drawings. I'm very very very aware that this counts as 43 drawings that go by in about 3 seconds. Is it worth it? F&8# YEAH!

hehehe, did you know this is only my second attempt at animation? It's something way different and I highly suggest doing turn around models of your characters first. Trust me, it saves lots of hassle.

That's the thing I love about animation. You get to see every movement of the character and the little quirks that just don't quiet come out on still drawings. When I picture my characters, they're always in motion, so sometimes my other stuff just doesn't do my imagination justice.
