Animation-DST hyena 1 complete by basakward Animation-DST hyena 1 complete by basakward
So, here it is! I did a couple changes according to what people suggested. I apologize for the weird "black" frames in this.. It has something to do with how I was stacking and multiplying the layers, or perhaps it had something to do with the brightness/contrast settings I used.. Either way, it's just a pencil test.. I'll be rid of those black frames in the final version.

I decided to encode it as an mpeg1, so it can be viewed with both Quicktime and Windows Media Player, and also the sound file is at 100% quality. Now let's just hope DevaintART accepts mpeg1

The sound clip is from Sifl and Olly

And it's four megs, so you dialup folks might want to go make yourselves a sandwich..

that's awesome how many drawings did it take? cause it's very smooth on the movement, it's not jerky or anything

That's very good! ^^ The only thing that seemed kinda weird was that the paper just kinda disappeared from his hands o_o But Im guessing that's just because the lines weren't/aren't thick enough, but whatever. I only noticed it after watching it a few times XP

Well the paper dissappearing is intentional because the other character is going to take it out of his hand. ^_^ Thank you for the crit and the kind words!

Well, don't blame DISNEY.. It's more Mike Eisner who's the culprit.. But I think it's going to bite him in the ass.. Doesn't he realise now that all those fuggin' PHENOMENAL animators are working AGAINST him now? O.o;;

(Guess I'm somewhat late, but- .. anywhoo)
That was, without a doubt, one of the sweetest laughters I have seen thus far, lovely details you've added to his movement. *is still giggling* Ooh, and I have to agree with some of the others here, the voice and the mouth movements make a great match too.
So yep, I loved it, that kind of an animation really cheers one up, can't wait to see it finished!
My favorite part was, when he rolled over so that his legs was pointing up and one couldn't see his eyes and his ears were all cute and I'd just wanted to ruffle his head and aahahaaww those toes and why am I not using dots I don't know me neither I guess I'm trying to say that I'M IN LOVE. .. well, I most certainly would be, if I'd be a female hyena.
Also, I fancy the clumsy way he walks out of the picture, it makes me wanna hug his eyes out.

What, hyena's have tails too? 8B Okei, I have a lousy memory when it comes to.. um.. tails. Maybe he dropped his tail on his ninth birthday, after laughing too hard for a puking turtle, a purple olive or a seagull that hit a street light.
But what on earth are Dante's Shaved Tigers? I'm not sure I wanna know, they sound freaky to me.. but then again, I've never even heard of Sifl and Olly.

.. damn, now I'm hooked. *sneaks over to watch the clip all over again*

Wow! thank you for the extensive comment! I'm glad you like it! I'm having a lot of fun with this animation. I think I'm going to sneak a tail in there though.. *lol* My favorite part is still the very beginning when he says "Dante's Shaved Ti-Ti-Tigers?" and takes a peek at the flyer.

If you get the chance, you should watch Sifl and Olly! It's Brilliant!

Very smooth animation is this! I do love his countless expressions and the natural flow to it! I marvel at such things, they must be so difficult to make! The whole thing blows me away though, seriously. And I really really like the expressions and movments, they are truely awesome *nods*

Nice work B)

Thank you much! I pretty much did this animation with the concept of "expression" in mind.. Pretty much why I chose the Sifl and Olly clip, the improv really lends itself to some fun expressions.
