I created a flipbook of an owl flying as a practice for the current animation project.

It's made out of 17 drawings and I would never have guessed that such a simple looking thing can take so long...D:
I'll definitely stick to illustration, the whole planning before you actually get to draw is just not for me.

Anyway - it's flying after all!

I once tried to do something like that on a DSI, didn't turn out as good as I thought it would...

XD so epic. When I tried to make a flipbook of a stickman it failed terribly, so you've got some talent there! :)

Thank you!
yeah they indeed take some consideration...it's just so hard to keep the bits you don't want to move perfectly the same. I hate the way its face is changing constantly.^^'
I honestly have never tried clay animation but I'd love to some day!:3

Indeed, 2D drawings like this can take a long time to animate right. But I think you got it just write. I mean I spent 2 hours doing a walk cycle today.

Walk cycles might be one of the most basic things in 2D animation but they're definitely one of the hardest to achive I figure...so, well done with 2 hours, I'd need way longer for sure!

You are very welcome. Indeed, but my first one came out OK, has a bit of a stiffness though but I sorted it.
