I made this about 4 months ago, after I had just read 'The animators survival kit'
Its very flickery, because I draw it frame by frame. But since then I've learned to make slightly cleaner animation (like my current icon)
Any advice PLEASE.

(Oh fudge I just noticed I forgot the pull-stings on the hoodie. Ok, whatever, deal with it.)

Sorry but I have no clue :c I made this a very long time ago and I've since lost the original file. Honestly this really isn't a good example of an efficient animation, I had no idea what I was doing when I made this.

The best way to do it in my opinion is to plan out each main action as a keyframe, and then add in-betweens to make it fluid. For example, if someone were to walk, pick up chalk, and then draw, you could plan it like this 31.media.tumblr.com/7ca939c2e1… then you could add more frames like this 33.media.tumblr.com/175af6c707… and so on 31.media.tumblr.com/5fe59b540b…

It took me about 7 hours to make a 30 second animation for a friend's school project

The only bad thing about animating is how long it takes to create something worth watching

Sweet animation! :D Really smooth and fluent.

Nice, I got the Animator's Survival Kit a month or two ago. Still yet to test some of the techniques I learned on flash though. Fantastic book, very well written.

You're welcome!

I know, it's an amazing book. Made me rethink a lot of my drawing/animation and showed how much I still have to improve xD
