Test Animation 5: Little Rel by OverlordJC Test Animation 5: Little Rel by OverlordJC
Test Animation 5: Little Rel - Rough ver.

THIS is an animation I started a little while ago. (I've been trying to get used to animating in flash for so long LOL)

You all know how adorable *joodlez's characters are, yeah? Well I couldn't help but use them in one of my attempts to learn Flash They're all round and adorable, so they weren't too hard to animate.

The animation

The premise, was to have her playing a game of hide n' seek with her brother (Nocty). I stopped just before a cute montage of failed seeking on Rel's part. I wonder what I was on when I was working on this.

Eventually I do plan to come back and complete this one, so keep an eye on this one. Instead of uploading a new post, I'm just going to update this one.

This is the rough version of this animation. Each frame will be be re-lined to prepare for color.

Much of the background is also missing

Screen transitions still need to be edited, and additions need to be made for better story telling

Feel free to comment as always. I might not get to every comment, but I read every single one, and it's welcome here.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

Hi I have couple of questions about this animation and I hope you could answer them since I'm highly interested in animation.
Before you made this rough, did you make a sketch animation (using lines and circles etc) or did you starting doing this rough without the sketch.
Also, Before she opened box she had a nice 3D motion, may I ask the steps you used to achieve that? Was it difficult?

Other than that, I think this animation is very well done and smooth! I really love how did you construct the expression.

Nothing but hard time right here, I commend your dedication OvJC, I've attempted to use flash a few times (though not for line animation like this, but layered stuffs) and it always gives me trouble compounded on trouble, on a banana peel. It's just bad. Stellar work sir, I know it's old, but still.

No art, no icon, no favorites, no comments, no info, no google hits, no journals, same c/p'd request to over 20 different animators, just joined DA 2 months ago.

Looks legit.

Adorable! I love how her hair and clothing swayed just as someone in real life would. Great job; most people would make things like that stay still.

the fluidity of this animation is mind-boggling :noes:
Shamaninin-67 Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011
man I have no idea how people can animate like this in flash. my lines always end up so jittery. how do you do it?
arhmatey Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Do you redraw an entire character every frame, even if their is very little of that character in motion? I don't use flash to animate, but basically you work in layers. Notice how each pose Rel takes while looking about is real snappy, yet the cloth and hair 'follow through' that is, they catch up with the rest of the character and settle as the kinetic energy is spent.

So, you put everything you want still on one layer, and everything moving on as many layers as needed.

The only other thing I can think might be causing this jittery-ness is inconsistent line weight-- that is, the thickness of a line changes violently frame after frame. Again, its worse when a character or object is moving very little.

If you're serious enough about this, heres a little tidbit from one of greatest animators living: [link]

I love the turn of her head when she's looking at the chest! Frames are so smooth and the movement is so realistic! Lovely, hope to see more.
AlOrozco Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It looks great! Really smooth! Though, my only issue with it is her clothing feels lighter than they should be and they float too much.
