30 hours of work for 3 second loop (animated illustration? .-.), but looks pretty good :)
Guys, tell me, if you like it or not, or what to improve.

Maybe I'll use her for something longer...or just in demo reel...

pay me 20 000 USD and it's done

Nice loop.

For a simple test animation, this is much better than what I can do right now. Judging from your signup date, I see where you're coming from: I signed up here in 2001, got flash in 2004, a tablet in 2005, and have been doing artistic studies since 2008. Now, on with the review...

When it comes to animation, it's a lot harder to animate a figure drawing than let's say, a flour sack, without it looking stilted and awkward. (Even with a rotoscope, it ain't easy.) However, what you have done is excellent, there aren't any mistakes in the proportions or the anatomy. Plus, I like your color selection. On the other hand, while I did like the use of blur effects, next time, I suggest you cut back on the filters because if used too much, they result in major lag. In addition, the lack of lighting on the woman clashes with the dark background.
I bet if you teamed up who lacks your drawing and animation skills, but knows a thing or two about storywriting/direction/etc., you'll be top dog in no time. (I know quite a few who can use your talent.)

What I liked about this:
-Excellent animation with nice colors

What I didn't like:
-The fact that this was a test
-The woman could have used some shadows, but since those individual drawings have volume and structure; I won't knock you down.

Overall: I usually keep my animation tests off of the portal and in my file dump, but personal preference won't stop me from giving you a nine out of ten. In other words, that day and six hours paid off quite well.

Very good

This an amazing FbF animation, almost professional even.
However, I do not think that short loops are suited to the Flash Portal.
Maybe you could turn it into a GIF and put it on the Art Portal? Just a thought.

Anyway, as I said this is great, good luck with your other animations.

Nice XD

haha Like this one


wonderfully animated. my only complaint is the looping. Although it does loop smoothly, technically, the loop is very noticeable, the character pauses mid motion and interrupts their flow. i think you could loop it better.

it's a nice component anyway. why not make a fighting game with your animation skills.
