This is beautiful. I love to see animation by skilled lineworkers. It's so expressive and personal. I would love to see more moving work of yours!

Thanks very much!
I'm trying to make time for making comix(!) in between paintings, but animation fascinates me, too-- do you ever mess around with either of those forms?

yup! comix are my main focus. animation is more of a hobby for me, i don't really have the equipment to do it, unfortunately.

Thanks very much! I just drew each small movement separately, by hand-- the most primitive animation imaginable! :nod:

Haha that's probably exactly what I'd do too if I was trying to figure it out. It's really amazing, I love how it morphs.

This is made of unadulterated bad-arsery! :love: I swear I've seen this and more than that I'm so sure I've left a comment :faint: Highly perceptive transition, Sam! The flow is for lack of a better word, impeccable, especially as each step is so subtly done while retaining a powerful note... the weight adding on to the trousers, for example, is simply genius :heart:
