AMP|AnnieMei-tion Xii vs Megan by dCTb AMP|AnnieMei-tion Xii vs Megan by dCTb
I gave Megan a staff and wasn't satisfied with still sketches of her wielding it so I freestyle animated something when the inspiration hit!  Despite the lack of planning that went into this, I'm still super happy with the way it looks.  It's hard to stop watching it loop over and over!

For those who might have questions:  The animations 54 frames played back at around 10 fps and drawn using GIMP.  No visual reference used; just freestyling in my head and using myself as ref on tricky parts I couldn't visualize mentally!

It says GIMP in the description. I use that too, but not nearly as proficiently. I mean, look at those smears!!!

Ains you're so nice! Well, for me it's complicated the painting part. I don't like very much the brushes!

Painting is not the only way to animate. Drawing, sketching+tracing, using paths/vectors as well as combinations are alternatives. There's also computer-assisted animation and 3D animation. Lots of options, all require time and effort.

Yeah, you're right! The only thing I don't know how to use are the vectors thing. But I'll give the best I can!

I can help you with the vectors. But it largely depends on the program you're using, some don't have the tools.

due to the way that fractions work, 10000/10000 is the same as saying 10/10 :/

Amazing. Love the motion especially on Xii, her attack swings are so beautiful and fluid. Really love the secondary motion of her jacket and hair.  Another awesome little animation, you are so talented and super inspiring! Can't wait to see what else you'll make!
