Welcome to Were-husky land! ^_^

I wanted to do another animation before summer ran out, this time a little more complicated than the first one (sleepy fox). And here's the result. I'm so happy everything worked out like I wanted it to (this is rarely the case with animation...something always goes haywire halfway thru or something o.O)

The day/night cycle was totally inspired by the game Okami for PS2, since that's what I'm playing right now. (I love making it be night in that game...whee! Mine's not nearly as pretty though.) It's a little fast, yes...but any longer than 4 seconds and it might seem boring. Or at least that's my excuse...=p It's a total of 8 seconds long...which is a lot of animation for a 'just for fun' project. o.O

Animated entirely in flash with symbols...so it may look a little weird compared to hand-drawn frames *shrug* Lemme know what you think.

Oh and don't ask me why his shorts change color with him...he must have super color-change shorts of doom! ^__^

Well, my business here is done...off to bed with me! Comments welcome!

As usual, character, concept, animation, hard work, sweat and monkey slaves are all MINE, so no stealing! >.<# Ask before taking my work anywhere, unless adding to your favorites here on Deviant Art. © Akagitsune (Oj Flohe) 2008

My hand-drawn animation sucks. You know, frame-by frame. I can't draw the same thing w/ a mouse like 20 times in a different place.

OMG, you're using a...mouse...to draw animation??? are you insane?????? @w@ that must be next to impossible!

believe me, tablets are MUCH more user friendly where animation is concerned. i'd get one, if i were you ^w^

I would, but i don't know which one to get. The good ones are expensive. What one do you use?

I noticed. I tried finding cheaper ones, but I'm going to go for one that's not much more than 100 bucks.
Is it worth it?

Btw, on my :icontails02574: account, I have a DOKI flash animation. I used mouse to draw him and his legs (which look bad when I tried changing them frame by frame)
all my paint pics are done w/ a mouse. Like my 'Tails determined' one on this profile.

well, the only thing i can say about cheaper is that it will probably be smaller. there's nothing wrong with that, but one problem i have is that sometimes when you're trying to draw a long, sweeping line it'll get cut off because you run out of space on the tablet to keep going. (i have a medium sized one. i dunno what i'd do if it were smaller)

anyways, good luck with getting one! =3

I'm going to keep looking then. I didn't think about the issue of drawing long lines like that.
I kinda' wanted one that was in sync with the screen (or whatever word it is that shows that the pen matches the location of the screen. I think the word starts with a C)

I'm going to just keep waiting. I can still photoshop with my mouse. I am working on a TAILS picture still.

It's adorably hilarious. :lol:

I love how he waves when it's daytime and kinda flails when it's night. I was startled when the scenery changed. :XD:

You did a really really nice job on this

oh, thank you ^w^ this was the only animation thingy i put any real effort into this summer...and i finally figured out how to use animation guide arcs properly! OwO (we were supposed to use them for the bouncing objects project, but i totally failed to get it right and just animated the bounce without them. heh.)

the flailing is a werewolf greeting equal to a wave...but far more fun! ^w^

yeah, i wish the change from night to day were more subtle, but when i planned it out, i thought 4 seconds for each one would be enough...owO not sure what i was thinking there, hehe.

I like how abruptly the scenery changes! I think it adds to the "oh my gosh it's a werewolf now" and "oh my gosh now it's a husky" shock!
