This pig turned out to be a little harder to animate than I thought.

You should really make him blink a couple of times, it will make him look more alive.

it doesnt feel like jumping

Either A. Slow it down

there's a nice enough squish on the piggy on the down, but as said above there isnt that much of an arc for it to read as well as a jump.

on a side note i spend about 2 hours making an animated gif for a signature here ha only to find when i upload that there are no animated signatures. it was my own stupid fault for not reading things first ha!, there it is in anyway, i gotta show it somewhere!

Thank you you two!
The speed is fine, he is supposed to be in a rush, you know? It actually looks jollier than it should IMO.
I agree on the arc though, I tweaked it and the stretching, I think it looks a little better already.

I'm not used to animate with this kind of perspective so I truly appreciate the help here.

That's really cool! But you forgot setting it to loop.

I really like this; the biggest improvement I think you could make is showing the frames of the woman standing just a tad bit longer before you jump to the turtle guy running at her.

Your colors and animation look good though, and I don't really have any qualms there. Great job!

Saw this and felt like animating. Except this is a little bit more than just practice. I might actually go somewhere with this.

The long panning part is for dialogue. Hence the missing mouths.


I think I would enjoy eating fruit more if it screamed when I bit into it.

I still can't keep proportions right and my drawings keep woobling.

My first flash animation (ever)

Bouncing ball

Walking cycle

Link animation

Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

That walk cycle needs to be worked on alot i recommend looking at videos of people just walking... or look up walk cycles and just try doing exact same thing or just get animators survival kit book,

Also that ball bounce needs to be worked on the arc is way to weird on first bounce it slows down a little to early and then it impacts a little crazy i think all you need is to bring the first arc on first bounce higher up and it should feel a bit more right but i would also recommend doing it FBF not with just one circle off circle tool.

I do love link thing though you should practice that other stuff first

What about the woobling effect?

When I do my first sketches with the pencil tool (wich are very rough btw) the movement often feels waaay more fluid and natural then they do in the second sketch.

Also, I'm using a wacom bamboo tablet and I tried a lot of different combinations between the sensitivity of the pen tip, the smoothness of the brush tool and the brush pressure feature. But the only situation that makes me feel comfortable for drawing is with 100 smoothness and no brush pressure, even though in this case it's hard to maintain control over the lines.
