New updated version - What? - 2016 redo by Sythgara

I didn't think I'd do anything beyond inbetweened rough. But here we are. I think this is the best animation I've done yet in terms of quality.

Photoshop and Flash

I think from the very rough animation I did few months back the whole thing took bit over 20 h to complete.
15 frames

Enjoy

Please Do NOT repost, trace, alter or redistribute or use in any other form, thank you.


Since this little test got so popular I guess I should explain it a bit more in depth.

This animation is just another form of bringing my character, Azuryt (Az for short) to life. He's one of the main characters in a fantasy novel I'm working on. And belongs to one of quite few humanoid races occupying my headworld.

I've also received few comments suggesting I'd post a slower version/breakdown, so keep an eye out.

Cheers and thanks for all the feedback!

Psh I could do that too lol. JK I just need to make more animations myself like you. Great animation I
m wondering how i can finally start taking commissions as well for my animations. I just need to start selling my art for what it's worth right? Here is one of my examples >  Sonic Mania Skirt Around by Rovertarthead  or how's this?  Effects animations by Rovertarthead

Why did this show up under the "Humanoid" Tag?

Doesn't look very humanoid more reptiloid to me....

Humanoid is a more common used and encompassing word for alien, human-like races. So I go with that one. Also they're mammals.

So, mammals that completely lack all body-hair, have no outer ears, and no Rhinarium..... Yeah, I'm not buying it, maybe proto-mammal but not a true mammal.

What like dolphin? It's a fantasy species.

Bad example, Dolphins are strictly aquatic. This species does not look like it have any adaptations for an even a semi-aquatic lifestyle plus even dolphins have fine hairs around their muzzles to help them sense hidden prey and feel vibrations.
