Inktober 2018 by Chirpy-chi Inktober 2018 by Chirpy-chi
A little late to post here but here it is anyway xD My Inktober compilation for 2018. Everyday, I drew a frame for an animation and this is the end result of a month ;u;

This is a really well-done animation!

VISION
The vision is good - you decided to make an animation for inktober, and you appear to have had an idea of what you wanted the finished animation to look like because the overall animation looks deliberate, and not at all like you decided the next frame on the day you drew it. I think you got what you wanted. 4/5

ORIGINALITY
I can't say with certainty how original the concept is, but in my opinion the 2 most original aspects - that is, making an animation for inktober and having her come up out of the ground in a swirl of fire (Never seen a changeling appear like that before) - make up for anything that might be unoriginal. However, I really don't think using an OC is unoriginal, so you should be fine there. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars is because I have no idea what might be considered "original" to people. A lot of people animate entrances, and a lot of people use their OCs. So some people could probably say this is relatively unoriginal. Otherwise I'd give 4.5 stars. 4/5

TECHNIQUE
The technique here is great. The animation looks extremely smooth despite being only around 15 FPS (The human eye usually notices anything slower than 30) and the anatomy is consistent throughout every frame. Just by watching it, I noticed that her wings aren't moving when she first comes out of the flames, causing her to fall. Originally that looked unnatural to me, but I thought she was coming out wings flapping. Taking gravity into account, it makes a lot more sense. The only issue I see with the animation is a minor one in the last 2 frames, where her head snaps into position. The animation of her head moving up is not as smooth in the last few frames as everything else (actually on par with most 15 FPS animations, so still not bad. Just nitpicking here). 4.5/5

IMPACT
The impact works. I can feel the motion in her wings, mane, tail, and her legs. I can see the magic as it dissipates from her portal (I assume she's using a portal or teleport) and her horn. It is clear that you know how to animate on computer as well as on paper, and that's probably better than most people can say. Very well-made piece that deserves to be in my favorites! 4.5/5
What do you think?

IT'S SO SMOOTH WTH
So, did you just have to visualize what the final frames would be since you couldn't draw them until the 30th?  This is an amazing inktober, definitely my favourite!

Yeaaaa, I just have it kinda planned in my head at what I want but I pretty much animate it with using the straight ahead method. It was a lot of improv tbh hahaha and thank you so much!

Unfortunately I drew it in a small corner of my notebook, I actually had to edit it to make the page smooth already ;u; So making it bigger anymore will make it quite pixellated
