The circle thing in the beginning is just what I did to decide how many drawings I was going to have to do. Normally animators will map out how long to hold a picture for based on the voice they get, but because I was not working with a voice I just planned out the motion instead.
Thank you so much :)

This was for my final in my Art and Human Development class. My first ever hand drawn cel animation! :D This shows from preplanning until final production.

For my final, we had the option to do a research project about something we care about and then create what we researched. I wanted to research traditional animation and here you go! :D I wish you guys could have seen my whole presentation XD I super geeked out and got all into it, and I spent wayyy too much time talking about Don Bluth animations and Thumbelina >////>; But I think I got a really good grade :D The rest of the class loved the presentation ^^


Is it sad that I want to go to college for animation, but the only animating i've done has been for a class that is about art education?

Elijah belongs to me, as does all of this animation!

i go to concordia university in film animation in montreal and i had never done animation before it's not a program is not really oriented toward the studio environment but it's pretty cool you can try a lot of different animation medium. they still have old analogue camera stands you can use. here's the link FYI

Make sure you practice a lot and start small! :D Try doing simple animations on pads of sticky notes. Once you think you've got the hang of it, move on to a bigger project. I first started with bouncing balls, then moving people, then hair movement, etc. Just pace yourself :)

It's so cool to think it started off as that little round circle at the beginning and ended up as a full picture xD

Not to be random but are you going to a Graphic Arts collage?

I love the feel to it, it's simple, yet you captured the emotion of the character so well :la:

I'm hoping to be a professional animator too one day, what did you use to create this?

Because I can't afford expensive equipment, I did the first sketches on regular printing paper, and then I used page protectors for the cels (clear pages that I draw on with Sharpie) and then I used photoshop for color and then used something similar to windows movie maker to piece the pictures together

I love how every time I play this, it sounds like my computer is about to have a heart attack xD

This is really awesome though. Totally worth putting my PC in a critical cardiac state lol. I wish I had the patience/time to do old fashion, hand drawn animation.

I have a question though that may stem from my own slowness, but is Elijah the male version of you...or your evil twin brother? Or are you the evil twin? Which one is evil?! lol =P (is dorkus)

Elijah is just my manself, no twins (evil or good) involved ;P I would probably be more evil than him
