Is there only a certain amount of frames Deviant will allow for animations??

I've been wanting to do animations like this but I'd like to know a few things about it.

When you do your animations, which are extremely smooth and give you props to you for that, how do you set the frame rate? Do you also illustrate the flow of motion in each frame by increments of 1 milimeter???

The more frames there are, the smoother the movement and the more clean it is. What I do first, is I just do basic frames. So if there were eight frames to make a clean movement of a horse walking, i'd only do the key frames. So, 1,3,5 and 7. or vice versa. Later, I'd add in not only the other four frames but as much as I would be willing to do int between. Just note, the more frames, the more clean, the more detailed it can be... and if you clean it up, if you have firealpaca, do the background first, because they can't be on separate frames. You would also neeed to speed it up the more frames there are, or maybe slow it down for the proper speed.
I'm still beginning animation, but this is what I know and do so far.

Thanks for that info bud. That helps a lot. 

I've been looking into what I can accomplish with what I have so far, and what I can get by the means that are open to me. So far I've thought of doing still images using my GIMP program and then use a program called MonkeyJam to put the stills into motion. I'm very familiar with Gimp, even though I learn new things about it constantly, and so far this seems my best bet as a start. Any further advice you can give would be greatly appreciated.

Just another thing I forgot to mention, for what else I figure could help, if you dog already know. I first sketch everything, just the animals movements, then I clean it up in a structural form on a different layer. After that I make yet ANOTHER layer and use the "skeleton" of the animal frames and draw over top to create the most decent animation possible. If you want more specification just ask 👌🏼😉

Yup, I'm familiar with that aspect, I read about that aspect in a book I had back in the day. I approach a lot of my drawings in the same manner. sketch out the "frame" of the body, then draw in the form, then add the details. That's the body of the characters is the easy part but the biggest problem that I see is drawing the motion. I've been looking into videos about that and everyone seems to have different ideas on how to do. 

The initial idea that I had for the motion was to draw the key frames to establish how the body of the characters moves from one stance to another, then draw in the in-between with increments of 1 to 5 milimeters in each illustration to establish the motion and speed of the character, after that I set the the frame-rate to 12-frames-per-second. Does that seem like a solid starting point, or can you suggest better options?

Yes, it's extremely good. 👍🏼 just one thing I have to watch out usually is when I make them, I have to adjust the sizes later on because they get smaller and smaller sometimes

Sorry, but I don't understand about what you mean by adjusting the size. Do you mean the resolution?

While I love the animation and think it's beautiful... If that's the ring, that Eagle looks normal sized in comparison. Other than that, flawless. I hope to aspire to this amount of amazingness! I just started animating yesterday, and in Photoshop.
