This was actually a project for my Advanced Analogue and Digital Animation class in second semester last year (Oct 2009).

I intended to upload this to my gallery a few days after its completion but I wasn't able to due to the audio track. I never got around to removing the music until now, so here it is without sound. Originally the music was Yoko Kanno's "Ragnarok Online 2 Intro Theme" (first minute). You can view the animation with the song on my temporary website [here].

Frame-by-frame animation created entirely in Flash CS4.

Wow, very amazing. It's so fluid and smooth and dynamic too. Even without the music it's still very impressive. And an inspiration too! C: I was wondering on how many fps this is animated and which tool you've used to make this (the tools in flash, brush or pencil or..). It's just amazing. C:

i love it how you put the simple tricks of animation together so well... i mean, to put so many in one piece is a difficult task.... all i can say is that your awsome... wish i could do more for you...

Oh, this is such a simple, yet dynamic creature!! I especially loved the beginning, where it hobbled about, and I could see it trying very hard to get out of that hole! You're ability to animate this creature is stunning! :D There's so much character in it, just in this short animation; fabulous work! :)

oh my! I could stare at this forever! You capture the motion and spirit of "life" so well! The red is very effective, you can't help but think of blood, but I think it adds to the feeling of being alive and creation.

I'm at school, but I'll have to watch it with the music later. :)

Thank you! I'm glad that you enjoyed it! I love reading your comments, really appreciate it! Hopefully you'll be able to watch it with music as it's all synced nicely with it and, I think, makes it more enjoyable. <3

You're welcome. It would be super awesome if you uploaded more stuff like this. :D
It's very touching with the music, and very well synced. I always seem to have an extra level of enjoyment for songs with lyrics that aren't in English.

Damn woman. You never cease to amaze me. This is beautifully animated. I love how the little guy moves with such a liquid grace, and your morphing is done really well.

souku Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2010
Thanks, Yam! Very much appreciate your comment! The morphing (especially the first when it leaves the shadow state on the floor) was difficult but I'm glad it looked okay in the end. <3 Had to redo parts of it so many times.

That was stunning and I'm really glad I saw it with the music as it really added to the whole animation! How you animated it almost like it was a living liquid was really stunning especially with all of that follow through! How long did it take? How many frames? =O

:iconsouku:
souku Featured By Owner Dec 7, 2010
Thanks, man! <3 I'm glad you enjoyed it! It took about five to six weeks to finish and the animation itself ended up being about 1600+ frames. I was animating at 24fps and a lot of it was just straight ahead animation because I kept stuffing up the motion whenever I did pose to pose. >(

Oh wow that's intense! Did you animate on ones or twos? =O

On ones. :b That's why it's so short, but at least the animation itself is smooth enough!
