messing around with animation by making these little gifs
the more threads the merrier
welcome to the board newfren : DDD

it's okay to have 2 animation threads up
>>654861it is ok to have 2 animation threads
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0MCJVV7CswThe video version is pic related but extended and has sounds.pic related is a gif of the whole thing.
>>662312it has really good camera workhow did you go about story boarding it?would love to hear your work process
>>662314>how did you go about story boarding it?If i am being honest, it went somewhat backward, i first did a basic version of the animation which i used as reference and then near the end of it i decided to do the animatic of the ending (pic related is the entire thin).afterwards i went and animate everything, this entire thing was an excuse to learn flash and as you can see from the inconsistent brushes.
>>662315and the animatic i made before the animation proper, i didn't even knew how to use objects back then.
>>662315>>662317inspirational stuffi usually struggle with quick and snappy actioni always end up doing slower longer shots it's real difficult to be able to compress that much movement and action into such littler time while nnot losing meaninggood stuffeven if your drawing could use a bit of work i'd say you're an accomplished animation director already : DDD
>>662319https://youtu.be/U0hymaqOhAEHere is another one, this time follows a effective system, it feels slightly rushed, but mostly because by the end of it i kind of just wanted to finish it, that being said this is closer to my skill level as of now!as for help on for snappy action, Exagerate the Movement, Smear frames indicate Really fast as fuck speed and as such you barelly see it, (Maybe 2 frames at most if you use 24 fps).make the destination of something from A to B overshoot Pic related is should help you, it's a tutorial on how to animate centered weapons in doom, but this should also teach you how to implement it in other stuff too.
>>662312this makes me feel like I'm on older newgrounds anon id die for you
i figured out how to greenscreen which is coolthis is far from finished tho
>>662516anon i'd suggest reading up on the wave principle for the hair and skirt movement
>>662519ph ok. sorry i dont know the first thing about this stuff im just guessing and having fun :B
>>662523I think it's good, but the skirt is flowing in an opposite direction to the hair so it looks like there's two opposing wind sources. I don't know anything about animation, that's just what I noticed.
it's ok to have 2 animation threads
>>669522it's okay to have two animation threads at the same time
>>674015niceIm happy that she lives on in another coomer's mind
RIP old threadLong live new thread
dynamic camera attempt
kott says, "horni bad"
proceed to commit power outage
83 lovely frames of kotto
>>654861Hello, former d/ic/k here. Is this the thread?
>>675919this is awesome, I saw all your other kott doodle animations on motorpen too
what program are you guys using?
drawing with a mouse is hard but I think I'd be worse with a pen tablet!
>>676043welcome to /i/ anoni like your work good stuff>>676067aww thanks bud made me smile
>>676163Thanks. Charming work as always, so that character is an /i/ thing?
>>676276kindashe's my mascot
>>677139ain't nothing gonna break her stride, ain't nothing gonna hold her down
>>677144i just realized that it looks like she's punching herself
POV: ur a sammich
>>677218i miss when we were doodling this and those victorian clothing things etc. glad your still relaxing taking it ez with us all.
>>676454So she's your OC? cool.>>677144Love these funny walks.
>>677324I need to gush about how cool your transitions arethe smoothe arching movement of the character and that fade out end looks soo coolhow do you go about animating these anon?do you draw/plan the key frames first or do you animate frame to frame?
>>677373It's pretty much all straight ahead, no keys. I've come to the conclusion that 99% of all great sakuga is animated straight ahead so I'm just trying to get better at it. Sometimes I add inbetweens if the timing is too fast (the momentum of stuff with secondary motion starts looking fucked when I do that though). Now the fade in there was done last just tracing the first frame.I learned quite a bit by messing around animating balls moving in non-ball-like ways, a character is pretty much a ball.
>>677394thanks for the advice anon grinding anatomy has been a chorei'll try doing the ball at high speed excersize nextsounds like it'll be a blast : DDD
le bridgman treadmade the arm and leg movement on the same side for that bridgman feel
applying bridgman to animation is so funim having a good time
What was the best animation from the last thread?
>>678228is there one or two of them below that waist
>>678231up to you ;3c
>>678220this is great

>>678500what do you think of it btw
>>678520It's really good especially for a first, the fire animations look very dramatic and the slam down seemed very natural!
>>678500>>678520its great anon especially for a first timeits nice to have more animators on the boardcheers : DD

>>684470day 04kott never forgets
>>685403I often have a reoccurring nightmare where it becomes almost impossible to move myself forward. This is how I always end up walking in those dreams.
>>685403"Command says snowspeeders have engaged the walkers. No damage yet, but they're slowing down. The bad news, sir, is that the Empire's sent recon forces fanning out. Troops are heading this way."
>>675042I hate how this almost syncs uphttps://youtu.be/xUQUrWoOjno?t=7
Wish this thing had an eraser.
>>685624right mouse button
>>685638Oh I see, thanks.
>>685403day 07>>685548>impossible to move myself forwardcan relatefeeling a sense of paralysis while fully concious is quite something isnt it>>685571hey i should've had a lazer beam animation from the eyes with the walk cyclewould've fit in perfectly >>685578it kinda does kek

Stuff I made for my own thread but I think is better as a bump for this thread
she's playing just by radiohead
kott can into rigging
Made for another thread, based on anon's tegaki >>685406>>687866Ok c:>>688523That's so cool! That's not flash, is it?

motorpen now has tweens. Draw 2 or more lines on a frame and Press 'T'
I tried Motorpen. It would t let me submit my animation. It kept asking me for the math captcha over and over. I ended up just saving my animation frame by frame.uping the Windows Snipping tool, then converting it to a .GIF. So, here it is.
>>693260Fuck, I can't type. You get the point, though.
>>693260thanks for reporting, I'll take a look. Or you just can't math hahaha
>>693269okay but when it's one of those +0 prompts what then??
>>693273You would add the two numbers. X plus 0 is X
>>693276I know that. but then if that's the prompt then how is "you're bad at math" a diagnosis for the issue??
>>693277I believe he is joking, hence the "ha ha". >>693269Oh, cool, thanks. If you find anything, and I still have said animation up, would I be able to submit it? I am trying every which way to get it on the gallery.
>>693279try to add more unique frames, just to see if that helps
>>693283It did not. Oh well. I closed it out. It's okay, at least I was able to save each frame.
>>693292it let me post after i made a new stroke on every frame hence the spastic squiggle but idk if that is what let me post or it just took long enough it refreshed the captcha to let me post...
>>693295is that using the tween feature? what do you think?
>>693260Reposting cause it'll bother me if I don't, I took the time to take away the little edges that were only present due to me taking a screenshot of every frame manually. They were making the GIF slightly jittery. I cleaned those up and remade the gif. Here it is.
>>693499i respect your autistic perfectionismo7
>>693501Yeah, that's about accurate.
>tfw someone talks shit
I tried out rigging on CS6 and it looks like shit but i dont care i finally got it to work after 2 days of learning hellhere's melvin
>>694199For a first attempt, I don't think it looks like shit. Great job on learning it, anon!
>>694241thanks! it was more about the export quality because it's a 2012 gif format so on certain displays he looks like he walked straight outta Chowdernot sure if I'd rig again though, i got frustrated with it a lot over those 2 days but i also now know how to avoid the mistakes i did make
>>669065that's so sick
recently added tweens to motorpen, what feature would you like added next?
>>694435Remembering what you had when your browser window closes.
>>694435brush sizes and colors i guess a bucket tool will prolly fuck up the onion skinning so save that for later also please add an eraser toggle option besides the right click holdingmy tab stylus doesnt have that function and its tedious to use a bluetooth mouse to manualy erase strokesthanks in advance : DDD
made this a bit ago. the idea was a guy using a sex toy that is too small. originally it was gonna be the same idea but with a guy fucking a goblin girl, but i didn't feel like drawing all that.
>>694439You can erase without right click holding. If you holding a finger somewhere on the canvas, the pen becomes an eraser.But I agree, eraser toggle is a good idea.
>>69568610/10 would see in a popup ad on a sketchy website again
>>669065ONE PULL NIGGA
rat gettin fucked up
>>696427I guffawed. thanks anon
motorpen has begun saving progress via cookies i thinksomething went wrong and now i got siezure kottpersonally way more entertaining the original dance lol
>>697069thought it was a sword, but became a javelin
>tfw did nohing wrong
i forgot to post this here
>>654861Wait, if all of you can draw 3 second animation loops then why aren't you millionaires from drawing rule34?
>>698742drawing porn got boring
I'm still not great at MotorPen.
>>693016I can't believe I missed this. Is the Motorpen dev here? Awesome feature, I always wanted some software with that tweening feature. Please make it so we can tween more than once. Also it's a bit hard to select small lines, I wanted to give this little guy a face and have it tweened but that was impossible because the head kept getting selected instead.
Jesus christ is almost impossible draw with mouse in this shitty app
my MAGNUM OPUS, behold, the walker
>>684470this awesome good job
>>699206trippy. What do you mean tween more than once? You can no?
>>699209is it a bug in the app or just your mouse?>>699217weak shot
>>699280is a bug, I have randoms skips, I don't know how to said it, my mouse pointer stop for a bit moment.
>>699279No. I mean I can't continue the animation with more tweens. Like now, all I have is a zoom in. If I want to make something happen after that, I can't. The tweening feature appears to break after you use it once.
>>699362thanks for reporting
>>699217mona anon would have a field day with this guy lolawesome job anon
>>682937>>682938Loved these, good work anon.
>>699458thanks anon I am glad that someone likes my work

>>711235The Wizard Smasher......literally, a wizard, who smashes
finally i can post this i did the dr livesy walk cycle funny thing i didnt even have to post it on the //ic/ thread someone else posted it without me prompting thathow fkin cool is that i think i will gmi : DDD
also another animationliterally drew the college cyntique personified beating my dumbass
fun with expressions
I love Frauv>>712586thanks anon : DDDD
>>712401care to explain the shapes on the top right corner?
>>712674every walk cycle is actually just half a cycle wherein in the first half is simply mirrored for the opposite leg/arm etchence when making a walk cycle one need only make one half and simple copy and edit frames from said half into the corresponding opposite atleast in principlehence whe get a sweert smooth symmetrical walk cycle wherein the left step is just as good as the right step and it all merges into a perfect walk cyclenow this, in a software like motorpen with minimal features for frame placement editing i must somehow keep track of all the frames (and their corresponding opposites/mirrored versions) in one way or the otherHence i opt for the easy to spot and visually distinct symbols on the top right, there's no particular order for the symbols themselves they just help keep track of the unique frames and their mirrors so if i ever deem a frame unncessary i can then get rid of its corresponding mirror too as i give it the same symbol in the top rightif you wish to see the symbol sequence in order you can decrease the webm speed in the options at the bottom right and put it down to x0.25 speed, then you can witness how the sequence on lasts halfway through and repeats itselfhope this needlessly word post was informative about my personal rather childish practice : DDDD
life imitates art
>>712950ahh i understand. thanks for explaining.
silly trad animations
using aseprite for the first time
did this in collegebeen dying to post it

>>722427ezgif only having one framerate for the final render is kinda unfortunate
>>722428Holy shit gay Frau real
she flies now
pure good vibes
i havent done this kind of thing in ages
According to all known laws of aviation,there is no way a kott should be able to fly.her wings are too small to get her fat little body off the ground.The Kott, of course, flies anyway
she's in a good moodlook how she skips!
>>724565good job anon
she flew too close to the sun
something smells tasty in that direction
oh no!she spotted the camera
>>725177dont you have a containment thread
>>725181silly animations go in animation thread problem?
re-synced the tail but motorpen wont let me re-render it so here's a sloppy screen recording
>currynigger shits all over another thread
six-shooter frauv>>725203: D not sorry
>>725207forgot the gif lol
>>725181Kott can't understand the concept of letting a thread breathe or giving someone else a chance, everything has to be about him
>>725164this looks like the start to Downwell
How do you animate on mobile
>>725208what might she be painting?>>726483use animator app from picsarti'd recommend getting a cheapo screen tablet for ur pc thophone animation is a pain to pull off
>>726660>filename has JEW in itwhat did motorpen mean by this?
>>725208Mister, who let da simpleton outta the asylum?I'll mosey on over to ya and buy you a drink.That fine mister? Grab that apple and you'll gee em.
