Made for the Train Your Brain contest!

Wanted to do something short and light this time. The dude is actually meant to be a new character I'm developing, but he got downgraded because I was too lazy to animate clothes. His guitar also got downgraded to a lute/banjo shaped thing because I cbf with complicated curves.

Yeah the sound sucks. It was last minute.

2-3 days on Photoshop.

Oh wow! And this was all Photoshop?! I get so overwhelmed with all the layers when you move them to the timeline...do you have any techniques to make it easier to handle? This is really great especially since it took you some 2-3 days only!

Thanks! Hmm I'm not sure there is any best way to do it, but I think for this one I kept the main animation all in one video layer. That way I didn't have to scroll down too much. Any new frames I would draw on a new layer, then insert into the video layer, retiming so it fit right. I also suggest you assign keyboard shortcuts to Trim at Start/End of Playhead so you can adjust layer length quickly.

Feel free to ask if you have any more questions :)

Oh alright, that makes perfect sense! A few of my instructors had also suggested making Actions for moving up and down the layers to get that flip effect to feel the characters movement.
Thank you so much for replying! It's really fascinating to see all the things you've come up with.

AHHH

LOL

LOLOLOL

I DIED AT THE LAST SECOND!

I think the sound is just a bit out of sync D: Like, when he strums downward at the end, that's when I expect the sound to come on D: but apart from that, this is SO CUTE OMG.
