Tiff Run Cycle by Piggybank12 Tiff Run Cycle by Piggybank12
I made this yesterday in an effort to learn how to animate using Photoshop. I ended up cheating a little and used Flash to do the actual animation and lineart (just so I could catch and fix any goof-ups I made more easily), but the shading and final composition had to be done completely in Photoshop.

It's got a couple odd ends here and there, but for the exercise that it was, I'm very happy with it. Makes me really appreciate how hard it must have been to make the art and animation in the original show, and it also makes me excited to see what I could use this animation technique for in the future. Animating her was tough as well, as I ended up having to forget a few animation tricks I usually use in my work to make her move more choppy like in the show. :XD:

Darn, I wish you could do more Kirby related fanart/animations... Besides, Having a complete number of Sonic & MLP ones is enough... -_-

Good point, haha.  I do like drawing stuff from Kirby; heck, I used to draw Kirby all the time back in elementary school.  I've been looking for some different projects to do as well that don't focus on Sonic or MLP, so I'll keep that in mind and see what I can do. :)

I honestly don't really know yet, haha.  I've got a bunch of animation projects I have to do for my computer animation class here at college, but those usually can't be fan projects unless you have permission from the company/person that owns the property.  I did recently buy the CS5.5 Master Collection though, and I'm trying to think up some ideas for what to make in After Effects on my own time... :D

Oh wow, this is so incredable. Fumu looks like she's been pulled directly out of the show. Awesome work
