777 Milestone


15-frame Animation Loop


Thank you, thank you, thank you to the 21 people watching me at the time of this milestone! :D

This piece has certainly been a level up experience for me.

I worked through the frustration of three false starts before arriving at the work you see here. I realized just how much cultivation my background drawing needs. That will be a focus now that I'm more aware my shortcomings.

this is really good, from the clouds, to the wind, to the motion of her clothes and hair, i really like this animation alot, the happiness that shows on her face can bring happiness to those who see the animation, i love the hard work on the shading you did on this, the clouds, the clothes, the line that indicates where her skirt covers her under clothing, this peice really looks like it would be in a cartoon/anime that i would be delighted to watch one day, i really enjoy this peice, you did a very spectacular job on this

Hm? I don't quite understand the question here.

Are you asking what show I referenced? If so, then I didn't reference any. She's an original character. :nod:

If you're asking something else then please rephrase so I can help you out. :aww:

MY GOD, THIS IS PERFECT!!! Her clothes are flapping just like they would be if she were really falling like that, and the way the frame is shaking a little makes me feel like I'm actually inside of the panel. Amazing! I hope to someday have skills to come anywhere near the pure epicness of this loop.

what is the tie on her side supposed to be connected to? I can't figure out what it is
Reply
:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Nov 20, 2010  Professional Filmographer
The magenta tie? Or that white bag that kind of flatly floats in the air? :D

If it's the magenta tie, then it's under her collar. If it's the white thing with the black strap then it's a white bag (with bunny ears, but only the back of the bag shows); I ran out of time to shade it, so it was left ambiguously flat.

Glad you took the time to ask. No one has bothered to do so other than you. :XD:

I see it now! I can tell that there are flapping ears!

This is very good! You should definitely include this in your demo reel if you plan to interview for animation work

Pretty damn nice, I'd just say the face could get a little it of animation too though. eyebrows 'n all. It's the only thing not moving and it's somewhat jarring. But really, everything else's awesome.
