:iconwildfire-tama: "Just, slow down for once... Enjoy that fresh rain smell and the soothing drum of the water on the ground." Alcatraz let out a small sigh. It didn't sound like a happy sigh, but it was content. He had always liked the rain, especially pouring rain like this. And now that he was recovered from the stress of their ordeal, he was beginning to enjoy it again.

:iconwolf-chalk: Judith just looked very confused, the bitch wolf cocking her head as she looked down at him. She supposed this was part of the whole 'travel because it is a necessity' thing Alcatraz spoke of earlier.

However, it still didn't help that she wasn't good at relaxing. She was so used to overworking herself, keeping every sense and movement sharp as a dagger that she forgot how to do such a thing.

"I..." She frowned, embarrassed. "I don't think... I know how." She furrowed her brow, Judith generally curious. "Teach me?"

~~~~

After Alcatraz saved Judith from a rapidly rising flash flood, the two take shelter in a den. Poor Judith is so frustrated that she is stuck in the cave and cannot continue her search for her mother. Alcatraz, irritable at first, points out the fact that she can't right now so she ought to just sit here and like it! ((As I was making this I kinda was under the impression that she told him to teach her... but after posting this section of the role play I realize that she more curiously asked haha I hope you like it, anyway, Chalk! I know she looks a lot different in my style, but I hope you like her anyway! I sure do! <3))

My first attempt ever at animation... so please be kind! I know it is messy... and sloppy... with lines everywhere and weird moving coloration (the coloring is so hard to match up, though... I think next time I need to draw and color everything, copy paste it a bunch of times, and then change the little things I want to animate... but I appreciate all advice and help!!)

Used PSE for the drawing and photoscape to animate, suggested to me by :iconkumihohime: ((how do you like it? :) ))

Pretty good as your first attempt at animating. :) Keep practicing and adding more frames over time to make the movements more fluid. It's all lot of work, but in the end it is rewarding. :hug:
But still, looks good and I can't wait to see more!

Thanks! :) Yeah I originally had six different frames just for Judy's mouth movements... but it looked really weird for some reason so I just changed it to three frames. Maybe if I had them moving faster and then add duplicate frames to the syllables that would be emphasized/take longer? ((I couldn't find a way to make the different frames different lengths))

I don't know... I just need to keep experimenting xD

If you double click each frame individually you can change their time to make it shorter or longer. :)
It is good to experiment so that you can see how some things work and what doesn't work. :)
