what a happy boy !!!! by royalraptors what a happy boy !!!! by royalraptors
I know it's just some simple choppy tail wag animation, but it's a bit of a milestone for me

Ever since I've tried animating starting all the way back in 2009, not only did it not flow together whatsoever, but I also had no idea what to do in order to improve even though I knew it would take years to actually do so. I still just had no idea what I was doing and it would make me so frustrated I would refuse to touch an animating program until I was ready

Now after watching tons of animations over the years with my artistic mindset setting in secretly dissecting every scene guessing how the frames were arranged in whatever way to make whatever happen, I feel like I finally have the "idea" of it down so I'm going to start practicing! I'll be starting out with some small stuff, but I'd love to get good enough to start participating in OC Maps and animation memes that would be p cool


Yeahh sorry for the rant, but now you know a little something about me. In the meantime just enjoy this happy Timekeeper boy, a boy I've loved since 2014 


His tail is always emitting clouds of steam, but I decided to only focus on one animation at a time before trying to put that much on my plate 



Also FireAlpaca's animating program is super simple and I like it! Also the line correction makes lineart a lot easier and smoother than in SAI?? Maybe I just have it at too low of a setting or sm, but I found it a lot less tiring to line than I would have if I did it in SAI so ye

It's really good <3

and for the criticism I think you're just missing like 2 in between frames and that's what's making it a teensy bit choppy ;v;

Yeah I've been trying to add more frames in my newer animations hoping it would help!

ye! probably 12fps and maybe you could move some of the tail a little bit more? ?? (it could also be off because it's not in the right place too)

It was around 12 fps and I've noticed that in my animations, and it's something I'm trying to make more accurate
