Probably shouldn't upload this in it's current state, but what the heck.

On that note, it's about bloody time I posted some animation.

Today I just felt a need to animate something so started on this. It's actually my second attempt at it since I wasn't happy with the first. This one's going far better.
It's good to even get this far with it since I've not had much time or motivation to work on my own animation stuff, so I wanna try and get this one as finished as I can manage. That's probably just be as far as a clean sketch or lineart, but that's cool with me.

Advanced critique encouraged. I know there's not much to go on, but it's good to hear your thoughts. The timings, if it's clear what's going on, advice on what little movement that's in place, etc. Go nuts :)

FYI, Tabby's opening a fridge at the start.

Edit: LOL GAIZ! Tabby's a li'l girl, not a li'l dood! 8D

I like how you can actually see her swallow the piece of sandwich she's bitten off. :)

Oh man, I can't wait for this to be finished. :D

I better start working hard if I want to get this good any faster.

Although i can't really critique on it, since it looks too good for me to critique on ^^;

Nah, any critique is good with me :)
That said, I need to start practicing all the techniques you use in your stick anims. Some of that stuff I've just not even touched on yet and I can see it helping quite a lot.

oh cool. :)

I'm glad my animations can be of some help.
I'm also trying to work on some full body animation
by associating it with a stick figure technique.

If it helps, I animate my stick figures head first.
To give a sense of fluid movement.

RUN LITTLE DOOD, RUUUUUNNN!!!!

Very nice work, even if it is just some sketches! Its also a tad bit too early to critique in mah opinion, but thats just me!

Wanna know something funny? That exact same scenario happened just the other night... My roommate decided to help himself to my ham sandwich at around 3 am, an I just so happened to still be awake, so I come out to see what hes doing, an hes chowing down on mah sandwich! Luckily, hes not that fast...



(Also, I got mah sandwich back!)

More like a request than critic; I'd like to see Felicia even madder when discovering the situation... :XD:

Love the running part, looks natural, even in this early stage! XDDD

Thanks very much :)

I'm actually trying to flesh out the running part right now. Having minor problems but nothing serious so far.
I might have to tweak Felicia's expression a bit :)

LOL!!!!! That is brilliant. I am assuming you'll put more frames in to make the animation smoother once you've finally got it all sorted out. Either way, it looks brilliant, and funny too. You're usual humour enters your work :D.

funkyalien Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009  Professional Filmographer
Hehe, thanks very much :D Yeah I'm adding more frames as I go through it until the whole thing has the basic animation in place. This one's only got a rough timing to it, and I've already managed to add another 2 seconds on just the bit with Tabby opening the fridge.

It's awesome :)

My 2 only suggestions is

1): make it where Tabby pauses to look around a little in each direction, then she sees Felicia and runs away

2): If you want, you could have Gene on the couch with a WTF/laughing look on his face =P

Very nice so far.
I am not an expert on this, but I'll see what I can find. The only thing I can see that might need changing are the ears. I think Tabby's ears should first perk up more to indicate she has heard something, next her ears should be lowered when she realizes she has been caught. That is only what I noticed.
Reply
:iconfunkyalien:
funkyalien Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2009  Professional Filmographer
Thanks for pointing that out. To an extent I have actually done that, though the ears aren't drawn or positioned very well so it doesn't really show through. I've just worked on fixing that and I think it looks better, but I'll post that up when I've got all the basic animation down for this :)

For sure we don't really see everything, but the moves look good.

Can be fun to see some stuff move ( the sofa or something like that ) when they run. XD

Sorry, I'm not good for critique. ;)
