how do animation



It’s done (I think)!

It could use a little more cleaning up, maybe, but I really like how it turned out, despite everything. I think it doesn’t look as shaky as I was expecting it, so that’s a good thing.

I wanna make some more of these little gifs, and maybe eventually make a longer animation… Idk.

Thanks to @great-taco for the critique in the previous one, ha ha, I made that part slightly longer, but I’m not sure if it’s still long enough? Critique is appreciated, friends :0

Interesting Tidbits from the Director’s Commentary for “Kubo and the Two Strings”

1. Kubo’s eye is indeed missing. It’s gone.

2. The monkey netsuke is a family heirloom.

3. Sariatu is holding her power in reserve for the day she’ll have to protect Kubo. That’s why her health and mental state are continuously deteriorating. 

4. Kameyo is Kubo’s one friend in town. His one friend. 

5. Kubo’s hair is actual human hair combined with silicone.

6. Puppets sweat. The silicone’s oils seep out of the surface under the heat of the lights. They have to be patted down occasionally.

7. Kubo was born in the Beetle Clan Castle.

8. When the Moon King attacked Hanzo’s fortress, he was aided not only by the Sisters, but also by his own army.

9. The Moon Beast’s design is supposed to be evocative of the constellations in the sky.

10. Confirmed: The villagers do indeed love Kubo.

11. The little images that appear in the margins of the end credits are meant to make it feel as if Kubo’s story is an old myth.

12. “Kubo is meant to be something of an Orpheus figure – a boy gifted with divine music who could coax rocks and trees to dance with the beauty of his work.”


I’m pretty sure that Moana’s going to win the academy award for best animated movie and I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the movie when I do watch it, but I really hope people don’t forget about Kubo and I really want Kubo and the Two Strings to win the award this year because Laika and other non Disney movies deserve that award too

i can give a request if you’d like.. off the top of my head, i’d absolutely love to see any variation of the love square ice skating together, wether actual figure skating or just for fun!!

Why I Liked DBS Ep 65:

Goku: “You know what? I’ve taken a lot of shit from this series.”

“I’ve been made stupid. I’ve been called selfish. And I’ve taken it all.”

“Vegeta saves his son from a blast, loses half his armor”

“and is called the greatest dad.”

“I’ve willingly

and purposefully

took a hole through my chest

to save my son and 

I’m a terrible father.”

“So you know something?”

“Fuck this fanbase.”

“FUCK this script!”
