Inktober 2016 10

Official Inktober prompt #10: Jump

I skipped day 10 for day 11, so to make up for it I made a little rough animation! Very rough. Maybe in November I’ll focus on doing animations as much as possible.

Olympics 2016: The Biles

August 19th, 2016 | More Animated, Postcard, Sport, Watercolored Chickenfoxes

Rio2016 Biles

The Chickenfoxes have been really impressed by Simone Biles’ performance during these Olympics. Since imitation is the highest form of flattery, they have adapted her signature floor exercise move to celebrate her!

Of course, they had to take out the handsprings, but they tried!

A making-of video for this animation will be shared with Patreon patrons this month :)

Olympics 2016: Synchronized Diving

August 11th, 2016 | More Animated, Postcard, Sport, Watercolored Chickenfoxes

Rio2016 Synchronized Diving

It takes years of training for Chickenfox divers to overcome their fear of water in order to plunge facefirst into it. It’s actually easier for them to dive with a friend. It’s dangerous to go alone.

Of course, Chickenfoxes are usually wary of Pythons.

I just love playing with animation, even if they’re super basic and not very well timed… (the plant bounces back up in such a leisurely manner… that can’t be right.)

Animation Exercise 1: Bounce!

July 27th, 2015 | More Animated, Digital Chickenfoxes

I’m working through a series of little animation exercises, only with Chickenfoxes. Here’s a Chickenfox bouncing in place, with no decay (doesn’t slow down)

Chickenfox Stands Up

I did say I’d try again! A Chickenfox standing up and looking around.

I really want to try my hand at animating but I always try to take on too many things at once and have grandiose ideas of what it’s going to look like or what the Chickenfox is going to do. So this time I didn’t really try to do anything too complicated, just a very simple (actually way too simple) walk and jump, like playing pitfall on my grandparent’s Atari when I was a kid.

Then I accidentally made it the first time I animated directly in Photoshop and the first time I did pixel art (too small) in Photoshop (instead of Paint! I feel so grown up) so it got complicated anyway. *ironic trombone noise*

But I’m determined to get better at animating! And now I’m excited to make better things than this.

Oh man, this is pretty awful.

(Bonus! Original size, oops:)

Olympics 2012: Kayaking

August 12th, 2012 | More Animated, Postcard, Sport, Watercolored Chickenfoxes

Kayaking

Kayaking requires highly trained leg and foot muscles to master the paddling maneuvers used to navigate the boat. Many competitors fail during the slalom, crashing into the gates more often than they avoid them.

Olympics 2012: Rugby

August 5th, 2012 | More Animated, Postcard, Sport, Watercolored Chickenfoxes

Rugby

Chickenfoxes enjoy the physical elements of Rugby, as it gives them the chance to show off their speed, strength, agility, and passion, all at once.

But sometimes the game and the ball fall by the wayside.
