Serenity Still by Ascynd Serenity Still by Ascynd
Here's the larger, still version of my animation. Not counting it as seperate, of course. Just wanted to show off the background painting (my best work in backgrounds yet, hah hah...)

I haven't seen whatever animation this is from but I had to come by to compliment you on your use of the silhouette here and the limited color palatte.

It's so easy for a silhouette to come across looking like a cardboard cutout in the foreground but you worked this perfectly with the little highlights here and there to give it dimension and the softer grays in the background help it pop in just the right way.

Really good job- I may have to go find the animation that this is from now. :)

The limited color palette helps to keep the file from being too large. The animation isn't much different from this except that I added clouds scrolling in the background and the critter flicks its ear now and then as if being pestered by bugs. Because of the scrolling clouds there are quite a few frames though, and I had to shrink the entire image down to keep the file size under control... it looks OK, but had to cut it short and post a still because shrunk down it didn't show the painting well. Thanks!!

I hate to say it but I never noticed the moving clouds the first time I viewed the animated version- I had to go back after I read your comment here and look for them. It's really subtle but a nice touch- it's a shame the smaller format makes them fade out like that.

Yeah, ah well, I still have the larger frames here, I just don't know if it's possible to post the full sized version on DA.

Extremely pretty and also looks awesome in it's animation form =D It totally looks like a misty black-and-white film shot in a misty tropical jungle with low clouds rolling by >w<

Aw, thanks! >w< But before this group most of my 'animating' experience was really just making 50x50 pixel icons now and then~
