Joshi-Walking-Sequence by Howikin Joshi-Walking-Sequence by Howikin
So I was home sick today and rather than doing commissions or homework, I felt the need to try animation. I have another one that's less than halfway done that I started before this, but this was easier. So, here! Have a never-ending gif of Joshi walking. Hand drawn, colored, and shaded. Animation done in photoshop.

Poses were reffed from Walking Lion - In Progress by BenHeine

There are... uh, 18 frames in this though. Took about half of my day, maybe a bit more. I should really be working on other things xD

So that makes this 144 pebbles, yeah? Tell me if I'm wrong.

Anyway.

Everyone, meet Joshi. Now, he definitely is not this old yet, but I always seem to draw him as older. Heh, his lack of mane fluff made it so much easier so that's a plus. He's probably about half that size right now, as you all may see if I ever get around to lining and coloring the other animation. I might stick to pictures for a while, or I might go on an animating spree. We'll see. Ignore the quick, crappy quality of the background, I was getting tired.

He is on a mission to find whatever he's smelling!

Joshi is in :iconheartofthekalahari: and is the youngest of the royal Delta Island cub litter.

Come rp with him ._.

I'm going to go make the pebble tracker thing eventually. 

Please don't use unless permission is given! 

Minor note: I didn't intend for it to go that fast, but my computer lags and apparently it's faster. fml.

This blew my mind.... I love it so much! I want to get into animating and this is really inspiring. Would you mind telling me what kind of programs/tablet you used to make this?

Thank you :D  Glad you like it.

I use a Wacom Bamboo Tablet and Photoshop CS2

Legit all I did was sketch each frame on a different layer and then line and color .

Ah okay! Wow- when you put it that way it doesn't sound like a lot but I know the process can take a long time. Now I know Wacom has a wide variety of tablets, and I'm curretnly trying to decide on which one to get to go along with my PC. What I mean is I've heard that they have the Intuous Pen, Intuous Manga, Intuous Pen and Touch, Intuous Pro, and then the Cintiq... There's so many choices, it's almost overwhelming. Do you know which kind you have, and what size?

It's a whole lot of work, took me over 7 hours for this small thing.

I have the Bamboo, 8x11

I think I just sat here and watched it for ten minutes. xD This is just really cool, and I love that the background is also flowing behind him. @@ Really nice job with the flow of his paws.

xD You know what's something to watch for 10 min? Bananna Anim by griffsnuff

Thank you very much though, it was a whole lot of reffing, staring at the screen, eating an quitting and then coming back to it to watch to see what looked off @_@

lol, I've seen that, it is adorable. xD I love griff's work. 

And I bet. xD Animation takes a ridiculously long time to do, even for something that's only a couple of seconds in length.
