Eliana Animation by WillowWaves Eliana Animation by WillowWaves
I know this has many mistakes but I practice a lot ^^; Please dont be too harsh. I appreciate helpful and constructive critique though. Im really insecure about my animations, its so much more difficult than drawing and I hesitate a lot about submitting them. However, this is my first coloured one, and Im curious what you think.
It is :iconflesola:s character Eliana, I wanted to do something for her because shes so awesome. She draws a lot for her friends just out of generosity and I got so many beautiful pictures from her I just had to thank her somehow :D
I wanted to animate Eliana doing something funny and easy to animate, but she turned out kind of bitchy and dislikable. xD Oh well.
Oh and her head got squeeezed when I transformed it into GIF :/ And its not as fluid as it is on my computer.

Im tired.

Don't feel so insecure about your animations. Animating is HARD! I tried making key frames, and let me tell you YIKES. I can draw decently, but animation is a whole different way of going about drawing. Okay, the animation. I LOVE it I really do. Yes, it is imperfect, but you can see you've got skill. Just keep working hard.
Also, now that I look at it, it looks like a water REFLECTION of Eliana puckering her lips. VERY COOL! (Like the water ripples are moving, think of that one scene of Anya in the movie "Anastasia" where she's talking to Vlad. If you haven't seen that movie, check it out, you may end of loving your animation a lot more!) :)
Anyway, great job, don't give up, and I love your gallery:)!

Wow thanks so much for that long comment, I agree with everything you said about animation, it is so difficult! Keeping the character consistant, drawing them from different perspectives, timing the thing, making it look alive and giving it personality all at once! :faint: What you said really helps me a lot to still keep practicing and not give up :hug: Thank you!
And it does kind of look like that, I know Anastasia, its my favourite Don Bluth movie :love:
