Fight and flight (animation practice!) by Vilva Fight and flight (animation practice!) by Vilva
An animation dump of sorts, featuring Katara, a random flying girl, and Tink! :la: Are animation dumps even a thing?.. Well they are now! :shrug:

looped/ tumblr'd separately:
Katara bending: vivlin.tumblr.com/post/3413958…
Tinkerbell: vivlin.tumblr.com/post/3393748…


Edit I've been getting notes/ questions about these so I just thought I'd post more about them here! :aww:
~I sketched/ animated this entirely in photoshop cs4
~I used references!
~For waterbending, I started off with one ref and drew some beautiful stick figures to come up with the rest of the frames
~For the flying ones, it was mostly just perspective so I just drew a couple different frames, duplicated, and made minor adjustments to size/ position.
~I always have the opacity of the previous frame set to 30 when working on the current one.
~Hope this helps somewhat! ^.^

It depends on which version you use, but for CS4 there is an animation option under the 'window' tab :aww:

I love all of oyur animation! how long does it take you to make these?
Reply
:iconvilva:
Vilva Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Thank you! ^^ It depends, really.. but I'm approximating anywhere from 15 mins (flying ones) to 30ish mins (bending one) :aww:

no way. you must be a magical fairy or something. HOW?!

Vilva Featured By Owner Oct 30, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Haha! :XD: Well, I didn't actually time myself, so I could be off! XD But see, the tinkerbell one is only 2 or 3 sketches, just resized and positioned differently for different frames (So of course it'd take less time ^.^) Waterbending is only 6 different frames, and I estimated roughly 5 ish mins each (keep in mind that these are rough sketches! Clean ones would take me MUCH longer! :T)But to be fair, I AM a magical fairy.. so. :,D

What program did you use, and did you use an animation light box to trace over your previous frames?

Vilva Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I used photoshop cs4 (It was completely digitally on my laptop.. so no lightbox P:)
