Carmen's Kiss by Zombiesmile Carmen's Kiss by Zombiesmile
A little animation* I made yesterday. I was just practising this shading style and couldn't decide on an expression, so I went with both.
Here's an older piece of her:


*before you think 'this is not animation': by definition, anything that creates an illusion of movement through use of multiple images (in this case, 2) is an animation. Not a fancy one, but still an animation. Even a gif with stuff moving only 1 pixel is a gif animation. :)

The drawings are good and the character is interesting but that's not how you snap your fingers. :) The middle finger goes down and your thumb goes towards the index. www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oo3cKx…

This doesn't create the illusion of movement.
It's like I closed eyes and opened them, registering only does two images.

people have a tendency to want to show off their knowledge a lot online. It doesn't matter how professional you are, someone will always feel the need to lecture you, sadly. 
I appreciate your words though!

I think if you add a third picture as the intermediate frame for the both present now most will complain that the animation is too short.
Looks cool as it is, might get even better if you find the time to add more.

Wow, this is really pretty!

But if you have to clarify that it's an animation, then you've failed at making a convincing animation.
In the same way that you may draw a red circle with the intention drawing an apple; having to tell people it's an apple instead of the drawing itself telling people it's an apple would (under my opinion) be a failed rendition of an apple.

However! Despite the controversy around the animation, the artwork is undoubtedly charming and it can be appreciated without a doubt.

It's not about whether or not it's an animation, but clarifying the term and its meaning since some people don't seem to understand the definition of it.
If someone stands in front of a painting and says 'that's not a painting' then the painter has not failed to create a painting, the viewer has failed to recognise it for what it is.

Ah, fair enough. I get what you mean.

I think it's fair to say you've created an animation, but it would also certainly be nice to see an animation with more than two frames as to not feel deflated and/or cheated when clicking on an icon that says "animation"

I'm not really here to debate anything, but y'know, I just felt kind of disappointed in terms of seeing an animation.
However I will reiterate that I am filled to the rim with delight on the drawing, colouring, and design aspects of your piece.

Without anything more of substance to say,
Thank you for your time, and for sharing a bit of yourself with the world.
All the best to you, and may you have much success in future endeavours.

Thanks for the chat, I too don't want to argue or anything, and I am happy you like the piece for what it is regardless. (: Maybe one day I will try my hand at something more complex, that would be nice.
You too, and have a nice day~
