A lot of you probably know this already.
This was release in 2011 while the first episode is in 2007.

It is interesting now when I saw it again (I was browsing random animations on youtube) after several years. After I start to understand and learn animation.
I realize even it is simply like stick figures, it still takes quite a lot of effort to animate them! In fact, how the stickman moves and the SFX behind that were all very smoothly done!  Amazing short animation!

feel free to watch the other episodes 😛

First ever hand-drawn animation!!

So this is my first ever hand-drawn animation (as titled)
Although it is simply like that…
I spend quite some time to finish that (including getting the legs, arms in the right position, fixing the head, etc) and, it is still not a ‘good walking cycle’
There are still some mistakes made in the animation.

 

MISTAKES
1. when the left leg is lifting, it kind of shift a little bit which it looks unnatural
2. when we are moving (walking in this situation) body and head will move, which I did not draw that out… I was too focusing on the legs and forget about the body.
3. And there are definitely something that I did not notice…. haha, so please do point it out for me!

P.S.
Now I understand why animation movie does not make a lot of money lol

IT TAKES TOO MUCH TIME!
