This is like a hypnotic dance…

Cirrate octopuses have a small, internal shell and two fins on their head. “Cirrata” named for the presence of hair-like structures called ‘cirri’ which may aid these animals in the capture of food. Cirrate octopuses are also noteworthy for lacking ink sacs - swim on little 🔥 ball! 😍




hp magical creatures : Dragon

“Dragons are giant winged, fire-breathing reptiles. Widely regarded as terrifying yet awe-inspiring, they can be found all over the world and are frequently referred to in Asian and medieval European folklore.”

Made this for a friend who needed some help with fire animation, figured it might be useful to someone else

this is how I approach any fire animation I do timing-wise and design wise. if I am doing something more cartoony I will use shapes that are suited to more flowing smooth transitions and a nice graphic look, if I am animating more realistically I will use more chaotic timing and a design that works better with the slight motion blur I always apply to realistic fire. real fire doent flow nice and smooth like water or smoke when viewed at real-time

I almost always animate fire on 1′s, though the cartoony fire can work on 2′s, you just have to be more careful of pops.

you can also animate more realistic fire with a slower timing, you wouldn’t want the above fire in the background of a calm scene. this is just an example using an extreme case.

Hope this helps someone who is struggling to rough animate fire that fits their specific style and scene timing.
