Thanks to everybody who commented, and Orange Bee, thanks....... I think?

Short test animation. Maybe when I get some time I might actually make it good, but probably not. Also if anyone has any ideas for a cool short animation throw them at me. I could use the practice.

Good job on the animation, Ari. Weiss' eyes quivering is a nice touch. I'm afraid I don't know anything about RBWY, but I like this. Well done.

I always kind of thought that if the human race developed mech suits they would look allot like tanks with legs.

Well, that is part of how the Metal Gears came to be in the world of the games.

That's a cool looking mecha Ari and those animation practices you did look nice.

Holay crap I missed stuffs. D8

That mecha is mega-awesome! gack! I need to practice robots.

Animation! how do you make that Ari? it looks fabulous! Awww, RWBY luvz~ XXXXD

What program do you use? I was gonna start doing some music videos with special effects provided only with Windows Movie Maker and GIMP. XDDDD

That comic is astounding BTW, when I post my comics soon, THEN you'll see what REAL shakiness is. XDDDD

The only problems I saw were some typos in the dialogue and maybe a few warped perspectives. But the machinery was beautiful. Well done. 8D

It's like a lighthearted version of a Wasteland installment. Pfffft. XD

Great animation indeed. The one with Gaz and the mech (Actually for her name) is also is also beautiful, but the perspective is also off I think, like Gaz could be a little less burried into the floor if you don't mnd me saying.
Anyone want ta take look at my own comic?

Hey thanks peoples

Also, Freak, I can see what you are talking about but what isn't really clear because I haven't really drawn it in but the mech is in a hangar frame and not actually touching the ground. Otherwise the angle would be really wired.

I did some more animation stuff. I have made some changes so this shouldn't take so long in future.

She's getting cuter the more nervous she looks. Can't wait to see the color version, Ari!

I never would have thought a simple one second animation could be so over complicated but I FOUND A WAY! If you want a mole hill turned into a mountain, I'm your guy!

I'm glad people liked my short animation. But seriously it took way too long. I just tried out a new method and already it is much faster. This is a WIP for a short Bumblebee animation I have planned.

Eeeek! The colored version looks amazing! Though to nitpick, you'd think Weiss would move alittle, with all of Ruby's wiggilyness, But you probably already know that.

Doesn't Weiss' dress have sleeves? THAT'S what might be missing for me. But I'm just nitpicking. The coloring itself is so pretty. And her sleeves were probably lace. Too complicated. When you're getting used to a program, everything seems like it takes forever, right?

I used to use MMD. I had to stop because in my everyday life I started cataloging how many joints I'd have to move to do whatever motion I was currently doing. Not healthy. XD

Short animation? Details! I demand details!

I am really glad you like it, and as for talented, as far as animation is concerned this is really nothing special but it is a good feeling, starting something completely new to you. You can either figure things out on your own which is what I have been doing or you can pull from a whole new world of information. It has been around for a while so there is plenty to learn.

Grimly, you asked what software I was using and I forgot to reply. I am using the animation features on Photoshop, version C4 and up are equipped with it. It is very basic but it has always been my belief that when you are just starting something, you don't need the most high tech gear. It has everything I need but it is a pretty basic package. The disadvantages are that depending on the file size and number of frames, it can lag while playing, even by milliseconds it can still effect your perception of the finished animation so you have to be good at picking up whether it is running slow or if your animation needs tweaking.

About Weiss moving: I went through and animated each part individually and I was considering animating Weiss beyond her eyes but I thought it would be funny to have her standing still like a statue to go with her expression, like maybe she was "Frozen in shock". I'm not sure how well it worked in the finished article. I didn't leave her jacket off because of her sleeves, they would have been easy enough. I left out the jacket because of her collar. It would have really gotten in the way and also I liked how she looked without it. And yeah, everything feels like it takes forever, 1 second of animation is 10 frames! The trade off for this is that a single page doesn't need to be as detailed as an actual drawing because unlike an actual drawing, people only have a split second to look at it so they won't notice if there isn't as much detail. Again there is added difficulty in that you need a much better idea of how things move and since you have a whole rage of motion, you really need to push it as far as it will go. I intend to gradually work up the difficulty over time.

I don't know what MMD is but what you are describing I had not even thought of, strangely. I myself am a catalog of every possible motion I could animate. There is so much I could do and I haven't even scratched the surface.

As for details about my next project: Blake is reading a book peacefully,then Yang comes and bothers her but gets more than she was expecting. They are sitting on a couch that I have't drawn yet. It was going to be a bed but I wasn't sure how to draw it in this angle. Then Yang dives onto the couch. She is going to make a kind of yawning motion then bring her right arm down around Blake's shoulder. I am having some fun trying different things for that.

I would really like to hear about your own experience with the subject.
