Auuuugh this was just supposed to be simple doodle how did it take so looooong
Ahem. So this is a little something I've been working on for the last two days. I was bored, and I randomly decided to try to animate these guys.

And immediately remembered why I decided to not pursue a career as an animator.

This stuff sucks so much time out of your day. Combine that with problems with the animation program glitching and being really rusty at this and making a million mistakes and...
Actually, I'll be honest with you, it was really fun to make despite all that. Difficult, but fun.

It's missing a couple of details (Pink's udder and spots, Ellie's back spikes and whatever those lumps are) but those are no fun at all and just kept moving all over the place and throwing the animation off. So screw em.

Haha, animation är kul men det är inte något jag skulle vilja jobba med. tar alldeles för mycket tid. Men jag gillar att animera för skojs skull.

Jag använder Pencil: [link]
Det är ett gratis program, men det har en tendens att crasha, så det är bäst att spara ofta.

This looks amazing! Really. Not only it's extremelly smooth and has a very professional feel to it, but it's also stunning how you created a separated range of moviments to each of them, making the walk really unique and characteristic. I would be really glad to see more animations from you in the future! Also, what program did you use, if I may ask? I love the sketchy look in here, makes it look even nicer and professional.

Haha, thanks! We'll see what I'll do later, I'm still very much a beginner at this and have a lot to learn.

The program I use is Pencil: [link]
It's free, but tends to be glitchy (Keep your hand on Ctrl+S constantly!) and the guide for it is incomplete, so you have to experiment to find all the hotkeys and similar stuff.

the little guy looks really great!!!! I think the big guy could settle down onto his steps a little more to make him look heavier. but it still loks awesome! good work.

Yeah, you're right, I did want to give a little more weight to Ellie there, but eh. This has been my first animation in years. Hopefully I'll get better at this eventually. Thank you!

Yeah animating is definitely a pain in the butt (what what) but you've totally got the talent for it if not the time

What program did you use?

:iconcrazyratty:
CrazyRatty Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2011
Haha, thanks! I did get a lot of help looking through my books though, don't think i would have been able to do this completely on my own.

The program I use is Pencil, you can get it for free here: [link]
Just note that it's a bit glitchy, and you want to hit Ctrl+S frequently in case of random crashing/"oh god what did I just click everything is messed up I CAN'T UNDO".

I use this program called Pencil. [link]
Probably the best animation program you can get for free, though it's a bit glitchy. Provided you hit Ctrl+S frequently though it's kinda useful.

I think that this came out nice pretty smoothly, Pink's arms and tail especially are very swing-y.

Thank! Yeah, you can tell I started with Pink and the moved on to Ellie, I got lazier and lazier. Still, I kiiinda works for the characters personalities so lets go with that.

I use Pencil, it's a free animation program. [link]

I want to warn you though, it is pretty glitchy. You want to make a habit of hitting Ctrl+S regularly if working on something important.

Oh yes, that was one other program my professor mentioned. I'm taking a beginning animation class and I love it so much. :D :heart:

So I might be the opposite of you, heh. ^^; Thanks for the warning, I'll watch out for that.
