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

easkull species is Katarzyna Zalecka
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

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.

Yea for easkulls the closest reference from real life i can reach out for is from big cats to be honest. Cos of the muzzle shape. (or pitbulls and bulls for head) Perhaps that's why : P

Thanks though

Ooh, so you've a plan~? My, my...
What are you THINKING of doing? Character design, story-boarding, writing, directing?...
I, myself would love to be a storyboard artist. We've been running out of traditional artists; pencil and paper, so I thought I should somehow put my talent somewhere in those fields. ^^

Heh no I'm a concept artist at this new studio in illinois. working on my first 3d animated movie : )

Personally I want to finalize my prequel first and get it out there before going back to my actual story (with this character) Been collecting dust for few years.

I'd love to do some traditional animating, sadly i don't really have time for it, and have to earn money.

O__O Whoa whoa wait...
Working on our first 3-D animated movie?!
Oh, wow... Oh, my..

Personally, I'd love to see more on your character of the Katarzyna Zalecka.. name?... Umm Azuryt right?..
Gosh, I need to troll through your gallery..

About traditional animating.. I would absolutely love to see another traditional movie... It brings back all those... Nostalgic feelings. If that makes any sense. :iconimdeadplz:
Hell, even those animations I saw/favourited from your gallery.. I had to watch them a good few times. And let me tell ya', I had the biggest smile on my face.
I envy you~ In the good way, that is.~

Oh I'd love to see the return of classic 2d animation as well. Disney is trying to combine 2 and 3d right now, might want to check out a progression reel of the paper man. It's a new short in which they're testing new technology. Probably still far from 90's disney but it's a start.

Heh, I wouldn't mind doing more full color work related to my own story. I will be posting some 'character insight' comic strips soon though. The most I'll be doing for a while really.

Cheers!
