Yep, just a class assignment for 2D Digital Animation class, we had two hours to complete. I chose to do this goofy bird thingy. Welp, hope you like it and the seizure it induces! XD 

Adjust your volume, it may be loud.
My first impression is that I like your use of color. That along with the design of the bird itself makes it an intriguing video that easily entices you to hit play!

I wish that I could see more of the body. I feel that would give a better impression of dancing. Also, for me, it feels a little rushed. This could be that you wanted it to feel as though it's dancing fast, or perhaps because this was a two hour exorcise, but I think you could get your point across with it moving a liiitttle slower. Squash and stretch would be nice as well when you get more time :D

The most impressive part of this is that the loop you've created here is smooth! There is no glitch at the seams. That is a truly impressive accomplishment in this sort of animation. A great study in a short amount of time!
What do you think?

Two hours only??? :noes: Looks pretty good considering there was that little time.

Yep, that includes render time in After Effects, which takes me a good minute because AE is the bane of my existence. lmao Thank you! I feel it could be a lot better but I'm slow as a slug with art, but I much prefer quality over quantity and nothing is ever quite perfect anyway. This on the other hand was done in 4 hours but this is hand drawn animation, whereas the bird is the word. Whoops! I mean the bird is symbol animation so once I set up my symbols and broke them up, it was just a matter of rotating and moving pieces to animate him. I also copied and pasted keys a little and adjusted the ease on the classic tweens.
