Flying Horse by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Flying Horse by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
Animation begets boredom, boredom begets Animation. Such is my life-cycle with the occasional video-game in between. =( That makes my life sound ultra-boring.

Done in GIMP, 10 frames.

It looks like it rises infinitely. :)  It also looks very real and believable.

Can you teach me how to use Gimp 2 for that?

I draw each frame as its own layer, using the opacity to help me tween, then save each layer as a seperate frame (I usually use Pngs). You can then import the frames back in and export a gif either by finding it on their list when you save as a new file, or by manually typing .gif at the end of your filename while saving. It'll then go through the process of making it an animated gif for you.

I do not recommend using the animation plugin that you can get for GIMP, the plugin itself is buggy, the quality is drastically reduced and it slows down the entire process even more, then you end up with a file that is difficult to work with in other programs should you require further editting.

No, just don't use any external plugins.

Eeyup. It'll walk you through the steps in making an animated gif and such.

Thanks.

-So saying this. I wanna do the basics. A walking stick man, just to get the hang of it, I'd draw as many frames as I want, try to make them even if not semi, and then...

Just a basic stick man, you can probably get away with a straight export as a gif (With only your frames present, no backgroud layer etc) and have the layers replace eachother when you save it (Again, the software will literalaly walk you through this step).

For more substantial drawings with more than just a sketch, you can export each frame individually and import them back in a new document to create a gif to save you from having to apply the background to each one instead. This is only if you plan to use GIMP exclusively. If you have other software to composite for you, you just need to save each set of elements in sequence however you need them to work with whatever software you're using (Pngs are the most widely used, i can't think of anything that won't work with Pngs.)
