Korra again doing some Earthbending!
oh avatarrr

gosh my brain O_o
Animation really does test you.
I went to investigate some different software packages
I did this in Toonboom (I think I might give flash another go)

Thanks for the positive responses on my other animations!
It's great to get feedback and advice that I wouldn't pick up if I were just in my own bubble. Go internet!
(if anyone else has any other pointers, i'd be more than open to it!)

I just want to get better! I think I have caught the animation bug.

I was also experimenting with the frame rate/timing and trying to get a better understanding of it
I figure if I just keep doing it, i'll get the hang of it somehow.

I guess when you get more confident you can move to other programs like Flash or Toonboom!
(or even Photoshop!)

Wow. You're LEARNING animation?

I guess people are always learning, but... Wow. The quality of this stuff is insanely great. How are you not more well-known on DeviantArt?

the "animation bug" --I feel like I know exactly what you're talking about haha I caught it myself about 2 years ago...I stopped animating though (I only did it for fun)

YOU are very good at what you do :D keep it up!

THIS IS AMAZING. Everything is so smooth! Is this done from scratch, or did you use any references? My dream is to animate like this too! THIS IS AMAZING! You're such an inspiration! 8D

Thanks! You can do it! It just takes time and practice really.
Well I had to research the moves (I don't know kung fu)
but after that I drew it using my brain and made up my own choreography.
Shoulda seen me trying to act it out lol
I think it makes me understand the movement better

gabmadrid Featured By Owner Mar 2, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Awesome. 8D I once tried to act out bending too! Even tried to memorize the steps to the Dancing Dragon. :)) Anyway, you have excellent eye for animation, and I hope you keep it up! Looking forward to see more of your work! :)

gosh i love this animation sequence. this is coming from an animation n00b, but it all seems to flow so smoothly, and knowing that this is kungfu with a ton of motion... that is really one hard thing to animate! major props!
and not sure if you follow bryan konietzko's tumblr (he's one of the avatar co-creators), but he just posted about a nickelodeon animation paid internship that is now available for applicants! you seem to be the perfect fit for it since you're a great animator and you clearly like avatar! Look on the journal for March 2, 2012:

That would be amazing!
I totally want to get into animation!
The thing is I live in New Zealand and there's that whole immigration/working visa issue.
my gosh that sucks! I'd be so keen!

Yeah I didn't realize you live in New Zealand until after I sent the message and then checked your page :/ That is really too bad. I definitely wish you the best in all of your animation endeavors, though! you're already amazing at it :)
