:HappyNewYear: jali... you are soo talented, each one you put on here is better than the last!

Thank you for your kind words. really appreciate it, I always try to push my self when I create these pieces, I learnt a lot during the creation of this one,

Always push yourself... maybe the next push could be making them longer though?   :biggrin:

I will try to make them longer, it just takes a tremendous amount of time, this piece took me 6 weeks, working 4 hours a day, 5 days a week , while working a part time job,

I have a short attention span so whilst I do enjoy longer ones short ones are good as well.

OMG!  I'm so sorry, I didn't realise how long each one took - they are even better than I was thinking then... keep up the fantastic work, Jali!  Push yourself and ignore me asking you to make them longer in future.  Keep reminding me and eventually I'll remember   :happy0158:

Hi,

I animated the cover of star vs the forces of evil by Kathy chan, did some new things in this one, animated the hair differently then how I usually do it, animated the skirt, tried something new with the subtitles, hope you like it,

That was amazing, Jali... it's a fast song so it must have taken you longer than usual to get it all animated!  Keep up the great work!

thank you, even though its shorter then my normal videos, it took slightly longer, just under 5 weeks, I tried to make the subtitles interesting and match the music,

Keep up the fantastic work, Jali!  How about putting them all on a website for others to enjoy too?  You are improving with every single one you create! 

What sort of exercise do you do?  I can only walk between my two neighbours with the puppy twice a day... what about you?  Have you thought about getting a fitness tracker - mine has really inspired me to reach the daily goals every day and I usually exceed them now... is that something that would inspire you too?

Hi,

Been working away on my new animation, only 30 seconds but, did some new stuff, also this piece has 11 character that I had to draw and animated which is why it took so long, 8 weeks to be exact,

That's awesome, Jali!  Do you draw each scene on paper then animate it on your computer, or is it all done on the computer?  Either way is awesome and looking really professionally made!   :happy0158:

You should be really proud of all your achievements!  Have you thought about putting them on a website so that you've got a record of each one and others can see the progress you've made?  Keep up the fantastic work, Jali!!

I'm very impressed with the improving animations and that's with me thinking you were good in the first place.
