Kamiko Chibi Anim v2
I followed some advice from :iconstephenleotti: and tried to fix up the blink and the hair movement using some diagrams he drew up: 

Blink cushioning tutorial by StephenLeotti 

Thanks for the tips. The rework I did was to add some cushioned inbetween frames at the start and end keyframes of the hair movement which gave me 8 frames of hair sway in the end. When I went to do the animation, I removed two of the eye inbetweens to speed up the blink. In all 14 frames and I used to put it together. I picked a longer interval to slow down the swaying and blinking, but I wonder if I should use 2s for the hair and 1s for the eye blink to slow down hair movement and keep the eye blink fast...
Kamiko Chibi Animation v2
So this time I broke the face up into layers -- each eye was on it's own later as well as the hair. To animate her I went to google spreadsheets and made a list of frames and listed which frame the hair and eyes should be on for each frame of the anim. The animation itself is 12 frames. I have the hair go twice as fast as the eyes. It's a bit time consuming, but it's fun.

Cake Time

I did this short anim test with Manga Studio 5. MS5 is great for just about everything but there's no animation timeline so doing onion skinned flipbook anim isn't easy. I'm looking for a good alternative (that doesn't cost a fortune). I did see that the new Autodesk Sketchbook Pro has a timeline and I'm tempted to get a license so I can play with it, but I really want to avoid "renting" software. Maybe Anime Studio? I realize there's thinks like Synfig, Flash, etc., but they seem to be bone based. Sketchbook Pro, I'm thinking, is the way to go. 
I pulled this from the journal of someone who stopped by my dA. I've always wanted to do a feature, so I figured I'd try this for a first one. :) I found this on :iconspunkycatgirl: so that's why she's first. Comment below if you want your artwork added and we'll go up to 20.

 For each of the first 20 people answering this journal, I will put their avatar,  3 deviations and what I like most about them! Also I love of you that I feature have most definitely inspired me in some way to keep drawing and try new things!!
If you answer, you have to do the same in your journal, putting the tagger (me) on the first place~!

I like the movement of the dachshund in that first picture as he's leaping in the air. I like the ghost girl and the twins' simple and cute look and great twintails on the ghost girl, they're springy.

I spotted your 3D model of Tokyo-3 over at your site, the Courne Supremacy, and from what I saw, it looked very impressive. Just how much of the city did you model, anyway?
AlbinoGrimby Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Not too much. I used Tokyo-3 from the new Eva 1.11/2.22 movies as an inspiration, so those buildings don't 100% come from the anime -- they just look like them, but I wanted to try and emulate the CG look that the movie had, because it looked really slick. It was a first attempt, and now that Blender's got better toon shading support, it might be worthwhile to try again. I'd love to build some more backgrounds that way.

You're welcome, I thought it would be the easiest way to keep track of your future Avenger/Gothom/Justice League animals. :)

Awesome!! I hope you enjoy the future entries.
My I ask what your favorite DC/Marvel character are, out of curiosity?
AlbinoGrimby Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I never read the comics, but I loved the cartoons and movies. X-Men and Spiderman are my favorite Marvel series, and so Peter Parker, Charles Xavier, and Magneto. I liked First Class since it was an origin story for the X-Men and I always like that relationship where they both agreed on the same ideals but went about them in diametrically opposed ways. 

Iron Man is another one of my favorites, mainly cause I like RDJ's portrayal of Stark. 

As for DC, I'm only really familiar with Batman and Superman, but I prefer the Dark Knight himself. I also liked Batman Beyond, but I don't know if that's considered proper Batman canon. It was a really great take on a student/mentor relationship and old, gruff Batman was just really rad.
