Tatsu Doodle by DarkmaneTheWerewolf Tatsu Doodle by DarkmaneTheWerewolf
A quick doodle i did when i went to Hong Kong to celebrate New Year. It kinda skips a bit and looses it's wiskers near the end but i didnt get time to fix it up before i came home ><

2012 is the year of the Dragon, what else would i have to animate? =p

29 frames, drawn and made using The GIMP.

I am horrible with animating anything that slithers or sways (like what you have above). I'm a self-taught animator and a beginner. Unfortunately, where I live is not big on art, so I'm on my own. Is there any advice you are willing to share with me to help me improve my animating skills to make animations as fluid and beautiful as yours? :D I know practice and patience are key.

Dude you animated this in GIMP??? Daaayum your animations are REALLY impressive! They put my pencil tests to shame! XD

This actually inspires me to do better and keep practicing animation. =D

it baffles me how you can get such dynamic and smooth animation of of so few frames. i think i'm going to have to download and overanalyze like...every singly one of your gifs :B

shhhhh. your animations are amazing and you should feel amazing. i do not see anything wrong with any of them, besides the occasional disappearing part(which i can't blame you for because gimp's animation interface is horrid) </sun>
besides, it's not like i'll be carbon-copying them ;p

Lol XD I don't actually use GIMP's animation plugins, all i do is draw in it and use better software =p so the dissappearing parts are my fault >< I am lazy DX

If you do happen to ref these, please credit if you can =p But only my own animations and not my commissioned work please, those are not to be referenced or reproduced at all.

Depending on the catagory you choose you can only upload certain file types. As far as i know, you cannot upload video unless you sign up and are excepted for Devi-ART's film and animation thing. But you can do Gifs and certain Flash related files perfectly fine in the correct catagories. I use Digital Art> Misc> Animation for this one which was just an animated .gif. The catagories are pretty confusing though, so just check which filetype you need and such.

I used GIMP but only as a canvas for me to draw on rather than using a stack of paper. The animation itself is hand drawn. =)
