It was a calm overcast day at the pond, as a small girl sat at the edge of a dock. Waiting patiently, and quietly as she waited for something to bite at the end of her fishing line.
The few sounds she could hear that accompanyed her in her waiting were the soft lapping of the water below her feet, a small curious duck that swam by, and occasionally the sound of the wind that moved the plants in a dance.

It was so peaceful out here, she soon found herself lulled to sleep. Drifting off to dreamland...


Just a small loop flash i made, i found it too be quite cute.
I'm not very good at big animations like walking yet (usually look like they are having seizures O_o, or at least in my opinion...) but i'm quite happy with doing animations like this for now.

Hope you enjoy! :3

Ah yeah it can be. Though just depends how you look at the kind of animation you are attempting. This one i was just going for the basics. Like swimming duck, breathing, sleeping girl, water ripples, and my favorite part cause it took the longest to do. The line on her fishing rod occasionally gets tugged.

Oh gosh okay XD I just wanted to say you're right about it depending on how much your animating, the poor you add the more challenging it gets I assume. X3 I wanna try and make one but it would probably take a long time

hmmm....it might be kind of challenging you never know until you try since i think some people have more of a knack for those things then others. Since you need to be able to visualize movement...or at least i think to try and accomplish the task. And use lots of references too if possible. I got another short animation on here of a flower blooming which took some time to create. Flower surprise by Friendlyfoxpal
And you need the right program to make an animation too.

Yeah, and i think what counts is if you're able to tell a story with it a little bit. Or make a basic animaion. (trying to get the hang of walking animation, but thats tough) :D

Indeed :D Whereas my animations are just plain stupid and pointless. :P
And walking animations are difficult! That's why I haven't animated any of my LEGO models yet.

aww i think you're animations are good too.
Yeah, might take me a while before i perfect a walk cycle. I drew a human girl walking some time ago, and she was shaking quite a bit that it looked like she was having a sezuire...

Well I suppose. But they're just so ridiculous. :XD:
Well don't feel bad if it takes a long time. Although people walk everyday, the cycle still isn't easy to animate. :-o

Nope its defineitly not easy. I bow my head in respect to the people who are able to draw and make those animations, including even more complexed ones. Cause walking not the only tough animation theres running, and other movements too.

Yeah. I animated what goes on inside of my head. Well, not really, then I'd have schizophrenia, but you know.
