You know, it's a damn shame. I wanna be an animator when I grows up, yet the ONLY time I actually DO any animations is when I'm threatened by a grade *3* So very lazy.

Well, here's another. We had to practice walk cycles, so I did a little raptor. Wearing boots. Or socks, whateva. My Character Animation class is fun, except for the whole "7-10 second animation every other week" ordeal x_____x Twas fun, even if I did stay up till 6 am working on it xD PROCRASTINATION ES TEH DEBIL! :shakefist:
So, the story: character walks across the scene, reaches an obstacle, n must leave the scene in an interesting way.
*shrug* It's....something :\

Dunno what else to, what's with me and beating the daylights out of cute plush characters o.O My subconcsiou is talking, I swear...

BTW, no crit necessary. Got major input from my class n teacher, so n'more......n'more XP I knows what sucks and what can stay.

Time : two evenings
Drawn by hand, scanned in each frame, edited a bit in PS, imported into Flash. Nothing more, nothing less ^^;

BTW, unless you know about Velociraptor anatomy, I ain't sayin NUTHIN's NOT....dear god, dun make me x__x

This is really awesome! I've tried some animating for myself, and it's no small trick to get it so smooth. Congrats! You've got more potential than some of the newer cartoonists out there! Honestly, this reminds me of the good ol' days of Beetlejuice and Animaniacs!

and i think i just posted pretty much the same comment twice. im sorry ^^;; *is cool*
sekushiitaylor Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2007
zomg!!! that is so cute!! i dont care what a stupid teacher says, this shows some real potential. i just started to try my first animation the other day (a scene from Twister) and it is NOT easy (125 frames for FIVE SECONDS!!) so i cant imagine trying to make a ten second one every week. how many frames did you use for this, and how long did it take, out of curiosity?
dabean Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2007  Professional Digital Artist
thanks. :) cumulatively this took about two days and i forget how many frames this had. and yea, it takes a LOT of drawings, but that's why i prefer to work on two's instead of ones. that way you only have to draw 12 frames for every second n' shoot them twice, adding in more frames only where you need it. haha *lazy*
sekushiitaylor Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2007
i rly like it^^ i think its super cute. i started doing an animation of a scene from Twister and it is *NOT* easy. 125 frames for 5 seconds!!! making a ten second animation every week must be hard. I think its rly good and cute regardless of what a teacher says. it shows real potential ^^

Demijaxx Featured By Owner Feb 1, 2006

This is very well done, nice step process, how many frames did it take? O.o

I like this a lot, and you've done a wonderful job with the posteres, his walking stance and how his body scrunches and whatnot when he moves, like when he got up his neck skin scrunched together. OK forget that line cause it made no sense LMAO

FantasyDreamLand13 Featured By Owner Jan 22, 2006  Hobbyist Filmographer that, like, PENCIL drawn???? That really COOL!

K, enough with the questions. *~*
Like everyone else has been saying - it's so cute! x3
Really, very smooth, and the anatomy (well as far as cartoon dinos go x3) is very well done, and OH MY just the way it all is! I lurv it. :bucktooth:
Ya know, the first couple times I saw ir, I thought it was ;aying an egg and then the egg, like...bounced off the ground and back up and hit him. :rofl:
-That's not what's really happening...right? :o

But even if it is, it's still sehr nett. =p
Tis going in me favies. :boogie:
