[This video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp0DvgZ2k6k) was what helped me to do this in the drawing program Krita. At one point, she says to not worry about the art being perfect since the frames move by so fast. For some reason, that gave me the permission to go ahead and give this a whirl. Can't wait to see what I else I come up with.
It doesn't matter when you start! What does mater is that you did take a first step.
Keep going and good luck on your future projects!
dreams do come true! this is pretty cute stuff op
Nice man. I can recommend the book : "The Animators Survival kit" by Richard Williams. It'll teach you all the basics that you need to know. And it's mostly pictures, which is awesome. Keep it up man! :)
Thanks for the book recommendation... and most importantly the positive feedback. Really helps keep me motivated. Best of luck to you!
Seriously, a journey starts with a single step, if you're hyped about it and keep doing it I'm sure you'll see it get better and better. Good luck on your journey mah dude
This reminds me of when I was younger making stuff like this on flip note studio on my DS. Yours is way better.
Both are super fun! :)
I have a smile as big as the dude you animated. Good job and congratulations!
THANK YOU! The positive feedback just makes me want to do more.
What do you do for a living instead if I may ask?
I do academic research. But I love to draw in my free time.
You brought a smile to my screen and a smile to my face. I can't wait to see what else you bring in the future!
That looks so cool
Hi little purple man. Nice to meet you.
Ha ha! I need to build a whole rainbow army of greeters. Then we'll take over the world -- one friendly wave at a time!
Wow, as somebody who also has the same dream, it makes me happy that you were able to do this
Dude, DO IT! If I can, then you can. Tip: watch [the video](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pp0DvgZ2k6k) that inspired me and then go out and try. Let me know (seriously) what happens! I support you!
Very impressive! Good work!
Very nice, keep it up

I am hoping to see more of these!
I'm taking requests.... Thanks!
So you are saying there is hope?
As long as we draw breath, there is hope. So good luck to you!
I'm so glad for you !! Your animation is adorable !! Keep going !!
I’m happy for you
Oh boy this made my heart happy
Your feedback made MY heart happy. Thank you for your kind words.
Aw, it's so cute!
It is really good, keep it up!
This animation looks really good and smooth ( and not choppy). I hope you have a great time making your dream animations!
Fantastic dude. I look forward to your feature length film.
Thanks! Free popcorn to you! (Post-pandemic, of course)
Simple but nice it’s a long way to perfect but just now? It’s rlly good
You just made me realise it’s never too late. Big thanks!
Right? Just gotta get over the hump of the thinking that it's too late. Cuz as long as we breathe, it ain't late; it's just the right time! Best of luck in whatever you choose to do!
I love how the face changes emotion over the animation. Also, the last frame still shows the top of the guy so a loop shows more that he is bopping up and down rather than appearing and disappearing. I might suggest adding one empty frame at the end here so we get a full disappearing act
Thanks for the feedback! I'll add that extra bit to make him pop up & down.
