10K Milestone Prize


3-frame Animation Loop


A prize given to ~sonicsmashkirby for catching my 10K kiriban. :XD:

Originally this was supposed to be static, but I decided to make it move a little bit. :D

I've been a closet Kirby fan for many years, but have never taken the time to draw Meta Knight. Glad I finally got the chance.

The next step in my growth as an animator is to figure out how to draw effects that pop. It's easy on paper, but not quite the same on a Cintiq.

I'll figure it out with practice. :nod:




How it was made...



Made in Photoshop CS4 Extended
This Work is 100% Digital

Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my gosh. I... effin... HATE INTERNET EXPLORER. ABSOLUTELY HATE IT.
I... had SO MUCH technical difficulties with it... Whenever I had task manager up to close it, it would NOT close.

Even though I'm a Chrome user, I use it at my mom's house. For me, I will prefer anything BUT Internet Explorer. Enough said.

I love Mr. LD!! ♥♥

Indeed! It's a great movie. However, I prefer the books. Probably because I read them first, but there's more meat in there. Still, the entire franchise is awesome. I'd recommend it. The game, too, If 2D 4 player side-scrolling arcade beat-'em-ups are your thing.

Yep. Downloadable from PSN and Xbox Live. The Wii gets no love. :<

At least I have a PS3 to fill the gap.
