Moar animation practice, this time with moar squash and stretch! :lol:

This is what all the initial sketches for my animation are like before they end up like this:

I won't be colouring this one though, haha XD It has 70 frames. This was going to be a Kiara animation, but I don't want to carry it on anymore.

Enjoy!

haha, thanks. Hey, glad you feel like you've improved. It shows, keep at it. You mentioned you got the Animator's Kit dvds, so thats even better than the book. More info and all.
I need to go back and create a series of scandalizing women sneezing and giggling all over. It just might give me enough exposure :ahoy:.

why the fuck are the lines so messy and wobbly. REAL animations/animators don't have this problem. you should REALLY be ashamed.

Generally, I keep these sketch versions to myself since I understand them at least :lol: It's more a thumbnail sketch... just mega-sized.

Rocket Slime is awesome. I wish the plushies weren't so expensive :(

Well, I think it looks really good ^^
The main things I would focus on is using keyframes. Keyframes are when you draw the main actions of the animation, then you fill in the frames in between to make it fluid. For example, in your animation, it's hard to tell when the back legs hit the floor, so you'd want to make a keyframes of them on the floor, then draw in the frames between when the leg is in the air and touches the floor.

I'm not very good at explaining things XD
Another thing I usually do is leave the tail (or anything else flowing, like long fur, clothes, etc) until last. That way, you get the basic part of the animation done, then it's easier to animate how the tail would move in relation to the body movement. :D
