Here is Raticate! And it may or may not be trying to impress you!
Best watch out for those normal types, you never know what moves they know!
MAN! This took me way too long! And for good reason, I kinda got ambitious with this guy (its over 12 seconds long, which winds up being over 300 frames! WHAT.)
Mad respect for Raticate though, for serious, can you guys guess the moves its using here?
Thats a very common problem is trying to have consistency between frames, many animators use a method called tweening in order to acheive conformity throughout an animation. If you just draw from the beginning frame through to the last frame in order you might go off model slowly, tweening is a good way to avert that.
So tweening is simple, you draw the first frame and the last frame and then you do the inbetweens (see, tweens!) If you were doing this on paper, you'd have a light table or light box and that lets you see through your paper to the other drawings, so you can kinda draw out your in between frame to the right size. You can simulate this in something like Sai or Photoshop by just lowering the opacity of the first and last frames (on their layers) so you can still see them and draw your character in the right size.
So doing that will give you the first, last and middle frames. So you do it again with the first and middle and the middle and last, and keep doing the frames in between until its all nice and fluidy.
And wow, sorry for the essay there! I hope you understood that! I might sit down and do a tutorial or something if that was too complicated (and if people would be interested in that!)
Yes, those are the correct moves! Good guesses
And thanks so much for the faves and the watch! Im glad you're looking forward to my work!
And thank you! Glad you like my animations
He (or she) has to use its full potential for Attract after all XD
Glad you like it
My favorite move is thunderrr >u<
