[AT] Kaia Walks by Zwaa [AT] Kaia Walks by Zwaa
Part 1/3 of my art trade with :icongriffsnuff:

I'm unhappy with how long it took me to finish this, but I've finally gotten to a point where I feel if I work on it any more I will tear my lower eyelids off. It's mostly because of the tails. I had a really frustrating time with them. But this is the best they've looked so far. So other than that, I'm really happy with this Icon. It was originally 26 frames, but it ran too slow so it was (early on) cut down to 16 frames. I am very happy with the way her bangs flop! I think that is my favorite part.
I already know what I'm going to be doing for my next one. It is less involved than this one, but I hope it makes people happy.

If I messed up on anything, Please let me know.

Nice!

Btw do you have Pixle icon commissions open?
If so how much would a 50x50 Pixle icon be that has 5 frames?

Thank-you.

No, right now I do not have commissions open.
But thank-you very much for your interest.
I'm not certain what I could charge though.

I plan to do more.
I'm not a very good teacher, but I can point you to some resources:
Gif Tutorial
Icon Steps 2
ICON TUTORIAL.
Pixel Icon tutorial

I found these to be very helpful.
The only other tips I can really give is:
A: Look at others art. If animating, look at videos; Just don't copy!
B: When animating keep in mind the arc of motion.
C: When animating, stare at your own art. It feels a bit narcissistic (at least to me) but it really helps you figure out what you need to do.
D: If you are interested in animation buy this book: images.search.yahoo.com/yhs/se…
E: Loads of people have made helpful tutorials on Youtube, here on DA, and even on their own website. I can't internet so I don' t know where they are, but I'm sure someone dose.
F: :icontyronniesaur: is awesome at pixel art. If you are willing to pay they have a tutorial you could buy.

Hopefully this is helpful.
