Kittifox Animation Test by kittifox Kittifox Animation Test by kittifox
This is a Wacom tablet scribble, I started with no clear intention but to draw a simple animation so I can get the hang of it. Well, yep, here it be!

-Kittifox spies an incoming attack! Now, in animes, attacks are lightning-fast and thus only allow time for the hero to guard, counter, transform, have tea or do other split-second tasks, so Kitti goes to transform into Dame Sagittarius!
-She knows 2-minute transformations are silly so hers is instantaneous of course. She can't help the backflip though.
-We DO also have to take a pause to see the eye color change...or tone, since I didn't color this...but yeah...
-Caught up in the anime spirit, Kittifox strikes a pose and winks for the camera.
-Too bad she forgot about that rock the villain offscreen tossed at her, hm?

Well, not a bad practice at animation, I guess? I'm working on it, getting a little better, and I don't think this is half bad. :) I know it's very sketchy, but I was going more for motion and less for clarity here.

This still makes me laugh.
Wow, I wish my stuff came out this good...

I have GOT to get back to practicing...
Huh? I don't get it at all.

was that a stone? >.>
He he, thanks. ^^ Well, the tablet we ordered from Dell, a 6"x9" tablet like I have is around $200 so they are a little expensive. Comes with a stylus, wireless mouse, and a nifty software package, so it ain't too bad for what you get. :)

I can't stop watching it~!! It's cool enought to see the characters on paper, but to seem them move is even cooler!!

*sighs blissfully, watches the thing a couple hundred more times*

Question. Where'd you get your tablet? I wanna see how long I'd have to work to get one. Are they terribly expensive?

WAHHHH!!! I love it! At first, I thought her eyes were rolling into the back of her head, but then I remembered that their eyes changed color!

Very good! It looks great, 'cause I know that mine would be crap! I'd hafta get a tablet first...but it's great! I love the cheesiness of it all. The rock was a nice touch darling.
Thankies. ^^ It's really rough, if I like it enough I may take it into Flash and clean it up a bit. This was really just a way to practice and kill boredom. :)

Sure you could do it if you tried! You've always been better at art ahn I am. XD Yours would come out looking a lot better I'm sure!
