Jungle Girl by Danimarion Jungle Girl by Danimarion
Hey, guys. It's me again. Guess where I currently am at in college? Indeed, we've had our first animation classes, and it prompted me to do some self-studying and practice my animating skills.

This is the first frame-to-frame animation I've done in, I dunno, 7-8 years? I dunno, I think it's pretty good considering it can be looked upon as a first try, and though the animation is a bit jumpy, I'd still wager that it's a good start. =P

In any case, the initial animation was pretty neutral regarding the character design. I didn't plan for it to be the Jungle Girl/Female Mowgli from that previous picture, but my girlfriend suggested her since you guys liked that picture so much. =P

So that's about it. I think animation is very fun, even despite the huge workload it brings with it, and I can definately see myself doing more in the future.

In other news, I think I'll be doing a livestream this friday, since I finally have the time to do it. I think that's a fitting time to finish off some of the last commissions on the list, am I right? :)
In any case, you guys have fun and such. I'll see ya later. =P

About as memorizing as Kaa himself. Shy of Disney's own Jungle Book, it's pretty hard to find quality snake animation, do it's definitely refreshing to see your piece here.

The animation loop is very nice, and everything is consistent, the shading, colors, and for the most part, the anatomy. That being said, I feel like the coils loose just a bit of mass as they move to constrict. I'm also not entirely sold on what's going on with the breasts, but it's hard to say exactly how they'd behave when constricted by a giant python, but I imagine they'd sort of balloon a bit more.

Her expression when she's being squeezed is pretty much a worthwhile image on its own, so it's great to see it come to life, and there's a lot of subtlety with how her eyes contract, and her hair reacts to being squeezed.

The background could be just a little crisper, I think. Blurriness does add depth of field, and the background isn't the focus, but if you're really ambitious, a clearer backdrop might add some visual impact.

My only real problem with this animation is Kaa's victim is female female(hah, sorry that's my preference there). Otherwise, it's a great piece, and really speaks to the squeeze and hypno fetishes quite nicely! Look forward to seeing more.
What do you think?

Well this is my first critique but I believe this deserves it. First of all th art style you continue to show is brilliant. The colors are in depth, the emotions are there, whenever you see a mistake you quickly fix it (if ever there is a mistake). But this, this is beyond anytbing I thought capable of you. And yet this shows me not to underestimate your abilities. Its gorgeous. From thr movement of the coils, to the facial expressions, to the way she squirms in the coils, everything is there. My only complaint is that there isnt more or it doesnt start from the begining of the induction/ coiling but that is not a problem because you obviously spent a great deal of time on this and it came out beautifully. Take this next statment as a compliment, its artists like you, that make me feel soo hopeless in my own abilities. I wish i could have your talent as an artist but that is what makes your art so great. Its your own style. If you do more animations like this, you will show everyone why you are my favorite artist on DA.

Animation and graphics-design, together with programming and science in technology within society. :)
This particular animation was, of course, done for the science in technology within society-classes. =P

I think my only problem with it is that it seems to run a little fast at parts so I can't appreciate some of the finer details. I can see they're there I just can't get a good look. The quality is amazing, honestly each individual piece could be it's own picture and people would love it, but then you raised the bar and made it a GIF.

Well, the reason for that is that there aren't a lot of frames in this animation. Like with older movies, the framerate has been set higher than naturally to make it seem more smooth, but in the end that also has it's consequences. If I did slow down the animation, it would appear much more jumpy than it already does, but if I added some frames inbetween (which I don't think will happen too soon) it would make me capable of slowing it down a bit plus have the animation seem smoother. :)

Okay, that makes sense. Kind of makes me think about Steamboat Mickey in a way.

Still, any chance of individual frames being posted?

Awesome for a first attempt! Truth be told, if you didn't mention it was your first time, i would of figured that you where hiding previous animations. Looking forward to see more of your works.

Actually, I just remembered that I did make a small sketched gif not long ago. It's not to the extend of this quality-wise, but it is in fact still a frame-to-frame animation. =P

really? what was the other one about? is there a chance we'll eventually see an animation of Choo coiling Yui up and maybe giving some tight hugs?

The other one is in my scraps section/WIP subgallery. Is pretty easy to find. =P

I'm thinking so, but I'm not certain. I'm still figuring out some stuff with those characters, so they have to be staying on hold for a little bit. :)

no problem. :) since your interested in animation, would it be to far to guess you might eventually do a full animation of a girl caught by a snake? :? or am i jumping the gun by asking these questions and possibly ruining thoughts? if i am, i'm sorry and go ahead and ignore me now.

Nah, it's entirely legitimate. =P

For now, I'm going with some minor loops to test things out, but later on, I might make more scenes for the occasion.
Snake peril is definately a thing, but that's a given by now. =P
