greyhound guitarist - process!

I've really been missing animating in two dimensions so I'm going to try and make an effort to do simple little things now and then. been working on this on and off and I thought I'd record and post my progress! 

I've been animating in Photoshop lately because even though I'm more efficient with Flash's interface, I still really don't prefer the drawing mechanics in that program. There were originally a bit more than twice as many drawings here but it looked much better as a simpler cycle, so I cut most of it out. Rough keys and motion down!
Clean keys! Easier to add in-betweens when lines are clear.

In-betweens added to smooth out the motion and timing spaced out. I ended up redrawing some of these to tone down the follow through on his nose, which is pretty over-exaggerated here, and tweaking the timing some more for a better rhythm.

Finished animation! Yay! (and yes I completely forgot to add the tail until the last minute, so that's why it looks a little hastily done)
