Yaay! It's finally finished! Oh man, my brain and fingers are well deserving of a nice, long rest :dead:

I think I shall call them Skandranon and Zhaneel -shot-

A week of work, and 106 individual hand drawn frames:faint: [so sue me, I looped the dive sequence a few times] played at 15 fps [frames per second] Enjoy! In many ways, this was soo~ much harder than my fox animation; there were two characters, both had alot more detail than the fox, there were two scene changes, they fly, and I've never been all that good at drawing raptor beaks and talons. But at least each has only one tail! :XD:

Art (c) Me!


PS:It's on YouTube too! [link]

First up I have to admire your persistence in completing what must have been a challenging task.
It is a real special animation sequence, well detailed for its purpose and hand drawn!

However it could have been a bit faster in playing, not all people have the patience to watch something that goes at this speed.
Secondly, some slides, the wings look like they are in awkward positions but I understand this was hard work so it doesn't really matter as much as the speed.

Overall this is an incredible effort with an outstanding result that really shows what an artist can do if they put their mind to it.

Well Done.
What do you think?

May I ask what your theme is?

I'm happy this inspired you ^^

What's an IWB? :?


Uh, I didn't really have a theme, but I guess you could say my theme was something along the lines of 'visually telling a story'..? :shrug:

IWB = Investigative workbook. You may know it as the Research Workbook (RWB). IB loves their acronyms.

And for the theme: well, you told one well :) Since I saw this I've gone into creatures of cultures. My art teacher stressed the importance of having a theme that you can relate your works to. Limiting, but gives you something to fall back on in times of artist's block I guess.
