Mouse... it moves by 626elemental Mouse... it moves by 626elemental
Joy and happiness; it works this time!

Some very kind people on Concept Art helped me work my luddite brain around photoshop. Turns out I was just clicking the wrong save option.....

I'd appreciate any crits on this, but don't be too harsh. It's my first-ever animation and I have no lightbox. Hence poor mousey slightly changes size every frame. Done in pen and pencil.

What you have shown is a mouse expressing bewilderment. When they have no idea of which way to turn, they often brush their faces like shown.

that's so cute! i actually like the way it changes slightly with each frame-- it gives it an slightly rough, sketchy look that makes it even cuter. well done, especially for your first animation!

Alright, pretty much my favorite thing I have seen today. I love how its just kinda an everyday mouse thing.. nothing too special. Plus, you can say that movement is him breathing.

I don't know about other versions, but CS3 has an animation tool, it's hiding in the toolbar menu. You click on it and then have each frame as a separate layer

awsome!!! i think the fact that it jerks around with sketchy lines adds so much more quality to it than you would get with a smoother more digitalized method!!! i wish i was this skilled xx

626elemental Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2008
pencils, printer paper, and put it together in photoshop. I've heard there are much easier ways though...

wow...
You got the reference of the last frame when you draw the next frame? The disadvantage of that however is your animation will look quite floaty instead of smooth, and may or may not be what you want it to be.

:icon626elemental:
626elemental Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2008
Well, I tried to trace each frame over the last, but with the changes needed. Problem was that it's difficult to see exactly what I was drawing over ao parts of him flicker around... I'd like to get really smooth animation but that's not going to happen without lot's of practice and a lightbox :D

jsiu123 Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2008
I can imagine it's harder to do it in traditional method than in digital method, which one can copy the same frame, grab the eraser tool, and draw the part that one want to change.

Good job anyways, and he's cute :heart: :hug:
