This is the first animation test I did for my Animation III class... we had to animate 10 seconds of dialogue of a character answering a phone and going through an emotional change... we also had to develop our own character for it... I developed Eloi and used dialogue from Stargate SG-1 by Michael Shanks. We had to animate some bit of business at the beginning but I never finished the in-between part... and I never finished fixing the end... I'm not too thrilled with those whole thing now, but at the time I was proud of it because it was the most dialogue I had animated.
Why doesn't the pencil test category allow video files anymore? I really don't want to put this in film and I have no idea where to put a pencil test in here...
well here it is on YouTube, anyway... better quality: [link]
EDIT: If DA's being weird, you can watch it on my youtube channel here: [link]
I was inspired to make this short animation after some of the comments I received on "She's Just Being Pinkie Pie" Lot's of people were saying they would be really excited if Pinkie Pie popped out of their computer monitor! I got to thinking, and, to be honest, that would scare the crap out of me! ( I'd get over it soon enough though, and then... PARTY TIME!!!! )
So as y'all may know, My brother and I collaborated from opposite sides of the world via skype and 4 shared to bring you this new glich/electro song! Hope you like!
(Brownie points if you can guess the acronym "PIRL" )
After a year or so of balancing work and doing this project, I present to you Bleedman's Powerpuff Girls D Opening Animation!

Some of the backgrounds are taken from various different anime, +1 cookie if you can name them. xD
This was done for my 2D Animation class midterm last year. This was strictly speaking an After Effects assignment, and though most of it is just individual frames imported from PhotoShop, I did need a lot of After Effects skills to sew it together.
Frames were "hand drawn" in Photoshop CS5.5 using a Wacom Intuos3 tablet and brought into After Effects CS5.5, except for the carnosaur which was a puppet with pieces drawn in Photoshop and rigged in After Effects. Sounds are from freesound.org.
The original storyboards started at primordial soup and ended at a pair of cockatiels, but after I realized this was a MIDTERM project and not a TERM project I had to cut out acts 1 and 3. O.o Animation takes... a while....
I didn't really do much paleontology research for this but I used to be into dinosaurs like ten years ago and this is based on what I remember.
There are mistakes all over the place and I didn't have time to properly synch the sound or add touches like eye blinks during the walk cycles, but I do like the way it looks overall. I also would've liked the running up the tree bit to be a new cycle, but there wasn't time to do it.
I was so glad when this was done! And there are bits of it I really, really like, like the running dino animation (after our hero gets startled by the carnosaur).
EDIT: Holy cow a DD?! Wow, thank you so much ^kingmancheng! I'm delighted by everyone's enjoyment of this little short. :3

Animated to a recording of Tabitha St. Germain. Music and animation by me. Sound editing and effects by me and The Living Tombstone.
For those of you who have been asking about the programs I use to animate:
For the hundredth time I don't animate the ponies, I video tape them! Honestly, why can't anyone remember that?!
Still, if I were to try and animate ponies, I think the animation software I'd use would probably be Macromedia Flash 8 Pro... I'd also probably build the puppets in the same program, but draw the backgrounds in Inkscape since it's much more user friendly than flash when it comes to drawing multi-layered images. At least that's what I've been told... Honestly I don't know though... I've never touched a computer in my life. Spike has been my stenographer most of the time, but I never read what he's writing cause I don't REALLY? I COULD HAVE BEEN WRITING WHATEVER I WANTED TO THIS WHOLE TIME? WOW! UMM... HEY EVERYPONY!! HOW YOU GUYS DOIN?! HEY, JUST SO YOU KNOW, SPIKE IS REALLY AWESOME!! TELL THAT TO ALL YOUR DRAGON FRIENDS OK?!
My next project will probably be finishing that remix of "Proud to be a Brony." (Teaser here: [link] )
Or a new song me and by brother BAASIK are writing. (Previous colabs include BR34CH, Dashstep, and PIRL.)
Also, Keep yer eyes peeled fer Applelicious y’all!
Sorry for the watermark but it's for safety of the game you will be soon able to download and play online (I will keep you updated with that!) It's one of many animation sequences which will be rotoscoped for the game. It's a second part of sleeping panda, this time she is waking up c:
