Both my final for my 2D animation class and a challenge piece for :iconwindsonde:

Finished! (well, about as finished as I have the time or energy to get it, for now)
Plenty of spots where the animation is wonky/could use more frames. A few spots where it's just plain bad IMO.
But, seeing as I did this in what amounts to about 5 days (2 for the flash animatic, 3 for the traditional drawings) I don't think it's all that bad, all things considered.

Might come back to this some day and fix the animation, maybe even clean it up, who knows?


Main characters

Tafari
*nekonotaishou

Reva
*comixqueen

Kiya
*Ciameth



Taffy is now a man!!
Sort of.... Adult gryphon.... close enough.

@00:22Absolutely brilliant body language and little gestures here. How long did it take to animate?

Thank you so much!
I spent 2 days on the Flash animatic, and 3 days on the pencil test, so about 5 days.

Oooh, how lovely that movement is~ I've always appreciated Animation, but now I do so much more since I started Animation classes last quarter.
How many frames did this come out to? /curiosity

Thank you!

I have no idea how many frames. Each shot was around 60-90 frames, and at least one was almost 200. On twos though, so not so bad ^^; each character had their own layer, plus extra layers for individually moving arms sometimes.

Even on twos, it seems like a lot. xD It paid off though, this looks great.

@00:22I love Kiya's wrist-tap... especially since gryphons don't wear watches! Of course, with her going into town as a human, she must have seen them. I think my favorite part is Reva's expressiveness. She's too adorable.
