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!

Breakdown can be found here fav.me/d5f4brp

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?

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.

woah, you should like get your own animation team and make a full length animated movie of your fantasy novel, the character looks cool and the novel sounds interesting!! :D too bad animation is so tedious, i have flash but its sooo painful animating no matter how fun it is in the end, at least for me xD

Hey if you want a voice actor i might be your man. and you seem to be a great animator ^^ . You could totally do a short.

Thanks, and yea trust me I'd love doing shorts if i had the time for it. But right now yea, it's not gonna happen. The furthest Ill get would be probably a storyboard or animatic.
