Croma's Magical Transformation

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Hope it's okay to upload such a small animation! I don't animate often so when I animate I tend to animate small, self-indulgent scenes.

I wanted to animate a magical girl transformation and the closest thing I had is Croma, an original character that uses the power of colors to transform into a three faced bird.

Obvious Madoka references are ok if it's self-indulgent

Sony-Shock responds:

Thank you! It's not much but for the little practice I have, I'm happy 'v'

Neat! I have a weakness for 'face-birds', like the one in Skyward Sword, and anything earlier.
Animation could have been smoother, but meh. Like the birdie!!!!

Sony-Shock responds:

I'll make my best to improve, then! I studied animation but I tend to really stick to illustration >v>c

Thank you!

Well, that was a interesting little trip...
On a serious note great little animation here mate, Like the style and cool mood it gave off. Nicely done here mate.

Short, but very sweet!

Short, weird, neat atmosphere and great character design.

Sony-Shock responds:

Thank you very very much!
