This a great animated sprite. It reminds me of Arc System Works animations.

:D (Big Grin) OK...this is cool. Nice job. I have recently completed an 8 week course in animating using PS, so yeah, I appreciate your work here a lot. Well done!

Fantasic, really fantastic. I'd love to know how you use the tools to create these effects. I'm assuming After effects is your goto tool to tween? Love your work :)

Did you do the artwork for gate or just the animation

some elements of the after effect I can identify, but this effect fantastico light is still a mystery to me.

Is there a tutorial or something similar for this animation technique on After Effects? reminds me so much of the Dragons' Crown's animation style.

this is nice...are you using keyframes or morphing? or is it all hand drawn?

That's 2D??? That's insanely good, it looks like 3D toon shading, that's insanely good. D8

So do you do all of your animations in Photoshop and After Effects?

Haha. Thanks. I use other software too but mainly those two.

I just noticed how redundant that sentence was (I think I pasted twice omg orz)
But that's really is cool!

I hope I'm not bugging you, or if it's an obvious question but can animation as fluid as yours be achieved with a plain old tablet and GIMP? (I'm kind of hoping to get started on a semi-animated series)

To be honest I don't know gimp well enough. I don't know if it has any animation features. But I would be curious to know.

It actually does have an animation playback function! (I find it more straightforward than Photoshop's.)
