Nother pencil test, this time featuring gatordog, yaayyy!

Definitely stayed up the night before last to finish it, hence the rushed ending, but it was fun to do.

and yes, gatordog is a girl, and named Annabelle (after my obese black lab)


pencil tests are so hard to seeee


Hm. and i really need to make a demo reel asap..

This is very cool!

How to do animate someone moving without having to draw the background over and over again?
If you could answer that would be wonderful, I've asked lots of people in the past and have gotten no replays. :/

I'd really like to learn how to do this! >~< because its amazing.

The background is just one layer, the drawings are on sheets of paper laid over it XD Im pretty sure any basic traditional animation tutorial would cover stuff like this! Just gotta look around a bit i guess!

How do you make it  transparent when the animation is finished, would Photoshop work? 

Thanks so much for answering. :hug:

Make what transparent, the background? It'd be WAY easier in photoshop cause you could just draw over the background layer on all the new animation layers. This was shot with a lightbox and camera XD the background shines through each frame put over top of it.

Haha! I love it! Especially the part in which she's coming out of the swamp and towards us, just so smooth and you seemed to push the weight more as she crawls over the logs. If you do get a chance to work on the sideview of her coming up to the house when she's running, I'd think you should push the weight just a bit more. We seem to lose that a little in that area... Other than that, terrific and so cute! Just like your recent sketches. <3

Also if that voice is yours, I'm sooo jealous! It fits the character and scene perfectly and is so much better than mine. xD It's so lovely and pleasant to listen to. :)

Thanks, i've tried retiming it since this, helps a bit but meh!
Man, the sideview run cycle there is the same one i did the colored run with, and after i colored it i realized theres like no weight in the back paws D: what a bummer!
I thought i was going to do my senior film on gatordog, but now im not so sure :/ its such a tough choice!

Haha gosh, my voice is so embarrassing! everyone in my class makes fun of me XD

zeivin Featured By Owner May 26, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
It may be tough, but it's such a unique character and if you were to be able to conquer gatordog then it would not only be something great to add to your demo reel but also show you can do a variety of characters. At least that's currently where I see gatordogs' potential at the very least!

d'aw no way! One of the best voices I've heard in a long time! I should show you mine, then you'd feel better about yourself. XD And the rest of the class is just jealous haha

well the thing is, the new character im thinking about doing is scarfy, so it'd be equally challenging to animate all his arms. I would love to do one with gatordog, i just cant get a solid enough story down :(

haha thats crazy XD

:iconzeivin:
zeivin Featured By Owner May 26, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
Oh man, I see your dilemma! They're both interesting characters... maybe you could do a main story with scarfy and have a small gatordog cameo? XD I dunno they just seem to go together really well. But whatever you decide to do, I wish you luck! :)

@00:19it looks great.though I have one tiny thing that bothers me, the girl who calls her,the movement looks great,but I think that with such noticeable gestures while calling Annabelle her voice would be louder and more shout like,also since she was far..
