October EMTC Entry by =otohime0394

=SparklyDest said: "While I am a sucker for anything to do with pumpkins, this piece also has a smooth animation and attention to detail that leaves me in awe. The way they handle the shifting of light inside the pumpkin is such a nice touch!"

Please excuse me while I die. :lmao:
This was possibly the MOST frustrating thing I have ever tried to do! But somehow, it was still enjoyable. When it was going well. :la:
I really tried to push myself in terms of animation, and even though I cut the original idea short and made it simpler, this was still incredibly difficult for me.

I'm still not entirely happy with it...
:iconumplz:
I couldn't get the jumping/falling to look right, but in the end I just left it as it was because I felt that the more I was messing with it, the weirder it looked. :saddummy:

I'd appreciate constructive feedback on how to improve it!!!! :dummy:



This is my entry for =SparklyDest's October EMTC. If you can't tell (which I do hope you can...) the emote is the candle. He's just jumpin' out to say hi.

I hope you like my mediocre attempt at complex animation, and please do give me some tips on how I could improve it!
:eager:
But don't be too mean to me, it's only my third attempt.

P.S. =Lushbob helped me with how to animate without all the previous frames still showing. :happycry:


EDIT: OH MY LORD. Thank you for the DD! :heart:
I don't even know what to say... thank you doesn't cover it. :iconcryforeverplz:
I'm so honoured! And needless to say, I appreciate every comment and favourite - while I'll do my best to get back to those who commented, please understand that I can't thank all 815 of you who favourited personally. I would still be here in 10 years time. :stare: So. YOU THERE. If you're reading this, thanks for the favourite. ;)
Thank you to the groups who requested it, and to those who took the time to visit my page as well. :blowkiss:

THANK YOU EVERYONE!!!
<3

I kinda like how it stutters a bit as it pops out of the pumpkin. Dunno if it's intentional but it makes the smilie look like it was struggling to get out. Very cute. xD

Ah! You know, I never really noticed that before. :giggle: Interesting!
I love to hear how different people see different things in my work - thank you so much! :D
