i was recently learning fundamentals of animation and I thought to exercise stretch and skew principle. Let me know anything about it.

Looks nice! Could improve on drawing the lily pads a little more but it's good!

Ya dude. I am really trying to improve on the drawing part of animation. thanks for your feedback!

You seem to have a decent understanding of squash and stretch but i feel you need to study timing and spacing more.
this animation is about 20% slower then it should be given the amount of frames you have drawn and the Fact that Gravity typically pulls objects down faster then this.. unless this scene is taking place in a low gravity setting....

While you certainly can learn animation with poor drawing skills i feel you really need to study drawing a bit more in what seems to be a vector based imaging software.... more concisely i feel you arent completely comfortable with the animation software drawing tools.
ive seen some of your digital paintings and you seem to be passable enough to start doing some ok animations.... you just need to get better at drawing in this animation software.... whether its Flash, Toon boom or what ever.

generally speaking tackeling animation is a good way to get really good at drawing... because you are drawing at-least 15 frames per second in shorts that will often be several minutes. so while you should strive to improve both your animation and drawing quality. you can still try and tackle animated projects for fun and still improve quite a bit.

Anyway im rambleing. Keep it up! Hope to see you Sharpen your skills! Best of luck!

Ya, you are absolutely right. Actually, flash doesn't give much of an option in drawing parts. my paintings are made in photoshop and do look very good. But because I am new to flash I am struggling with drawing.
and thanks for your feedback on that gravity thing you mentioned. I will try understand timing and spacing for the next animation.

pretty good i like how the face sinks into the water
