Happy Halloween (Animated comic)

What? Of course I know lots about "Holaween" I know all of it! :suspicious 

Originally, this was going to be a 4 panel comic strip, but then I started wondering how it would look if I made it a gif. So, I kept adding frames and frames until it was good enough for the idea. This is my first attempt at making an animated comic (if you don't count an animation that I made way back in 2008), so I hope you like it.

The style of the characters in this comic was inspired by this previous comic strip: Link

I know the idea might be a bit silly, but I think it wasn't only just about the idea, but more like being able to give more life to the work that's already out there. I will keep learning more fundamentals to see where that gets me. I already see lots of interesting things I can make with this style :)

You can also see the process of creation of this comic here in my patreon page, where you can support me to keep making adorable comics like this one, fan art and more stuff. Even the smallest amount would be of great help. Thanks a lot :)

This was really amusing. Very nice and the animation was pretty decent too.

Thanks man :D I planned it to be simple, but it got more complicated with this style XD But I think it was worthy since is more unique like this :O

I want to learn how to do this Linker- animated Pokey comics! :D

Once you know the basic tools it's not that complicated, later it depends on how long you want that animation to be and how complex. You should look "how to make gifs in phothoshop" and mess around with some sketches :)

OH! I will do this!

A comic as a gif is not great: You can't read at your own pace, and you can't actually follow the story if you don't read as soon as the gif starts playing.

Thank you for sharing that, I wasn't expecting to get the best result on the first try.

That's one thing I don't like about GIF indeed, that there's no way to pause it. I can think on a couple of solutions like  adding a couple of seconds on the intro, including a title card to give you the signal for instance. On twitter that's resolved, since the GIF start playing when you're on it. 
I guess I could also make it a flash interactive, I've done that in the past. the only thing I don't like about it is that it's not compatible with android devices.
I'll figure the right way eventually, thanks for your feedback.

Adorable. :3 Hope you make more gifs in the future.
LinkerLuis's avatar
Yeah, me too. Eventually I might do more complex animations, but you have practice in order to get better right? :)
Imagine Tabby in her non-chibi form in full motion for example :D that would be awesome
