Ah, I've been drawing comic pages so I haven't had any post-able art lately. Except for this stuff, lol. First up! My (overdue) yearly animation project! I'm already slacking on it, of course. I intend to finish this up a bit. Lets see if animated gif's work here...

Round one! I don't have a lightboard or a graphics tablet so I was kind of guessing on this. A lot. I've also never done a walk cycle before. Naturally I choose something complex as my first adventure in more complex animation. XD It's far from perfect but I did better than I thought I was while I was drawing it. Went back and fixed some movement for round two...

Head and neck movement is almost there, the hands are much better and the tail isn't as spastic but it still isn't quite right. After this I called it quits for the night and decided to work on it more in the morning. But before I did that...

I did this! And discovered I needed that discarded frame after all! This originally went 9 frames, but the 9th frame was waaaay off so I pulled it out. I'm gonna go back and re-draw this from scratch, now that I have a better idea of what I'm doing.

I was doodling while watching The Great Mouse Detective the other night and... this happened somehow. I... yeah, I dunno. XD Original sketch was in my sketchbook; inked it (with a mouse (hurr hurr) in Manga Studio then colored it in Photoshop.
