Getting some animation practice in as well as making a new icon for myself.
I do still like my current Malice icon, but I could really use a new one.
After several hours, I managed to come up with this. I'll be adding colour to it after work tomorrow. In the meantime, please let me know what you think of it so far.

Malice :iconrukaisho:

This is a really good animation, but that much is clear. The side view is a nice starting point in the animation, and the swift turn looks very fluid. And at the end, Malice's ears twitching is a nice touch that removes any little bit of boring this could be perceived to have. My only gripes are that first of all, the earrings vanish the moment she starts turning. best fix that before you finish it up. Lastly, it doesn't loop. This isn't a real issue of any sort, and I'm not sure how you would go about making it look good as a loop anyways, but it would be even better if it were made to loop well.

Stars:
Vision: Good, but there isn't any large amount of concept in the animation.
Originality: Your character, your idea, not a copyrighted species like a pokemon.
Technique: You've got the mastery of animation down, but your organization caused you to lose the earrings half way through.
Impact: As awesome as this is, it's certainly not an emotional piece.
What do you think?

The way her head bounces up a little before she winks seems kind of over-exaggerated, but I suppose that's just an anime style kind of thing. Also, her earrings disappear, but it looks like you fix that in the final version.

Something tells me that this was made on PAP... Am I correct or am I wrong?

Actually, I drew all the frames in Sai and then animated them in Flash.

''In the meantime, please let me know what you think of it so far.''

... I... love it... is the best way to describe it. With the exception that that's a serious understatement.

I think you could do without the side view / turn altogether. It's just static frames that lead to a transition. Why not use that time for a few more personality quirks in the final angle?

I actually really like how it's not a fluid loop, one of those where after watching it a while, it's hard to tell when it starts and when it ends. I know a lot of people like that, but I sometimes prefer it this way. So yes, the animation looks great to me.

Just a side question though: why have Malice as your icon instead of Sonia? I can easily see her doing this pose instead.

For some reason to me the turn looks like it is happening to fast. Though to be honest it may be because as stated above the ear ring vanishing is just throwing it off.

The earring vanishes when she starts turning. Other than that, this looks amazing.

I watched Zeurel work on part of an animation with Flash 8, really puts into perspective what you have to do in order to make an animation really happen
