Pikachu - Quick Attack! :Animation: by moxie2D Pikachu - Quick Attack! :Animation: by moxie2D

Created: 09.04.12

YouTube Version


Pikachu's quick attack, in a similar style to the way it's done in the black and white anime which I've seen bits and pieces of now.
The attack animations are really cool.

I haven't put any effects or anything too flashy in the animation at this stage, hopefully it looks good enough as is.
In the future I definitely plan to do some cool effects, like a glow streak from the quick attack, some movement lines and all that jazz.
Need to practice first though.

I'm pretty happy with all the drawings, just hope the timing works out, coz it looks great in PS and on my computer, but lags quite a bit in the internet explorer when I tested it.
Not a fan of IE though haha.
Seeing as though I really do like a few of the drawings though, I might upload a few of the frames in a separate deviation just for kicks.
He reaaaalllllllllly looks like Pichu in one of them haha, which is oddly my favourite frame.

Enjoy!

About 2 days / PSCS5 / Wacom intuos4

This is an upload test - might take it down and figure out the specs if it doesn't look right, hopefully the frames look okay on everyone's browsers.

EDIT:
Yep, it's lagging when he lands, then goes really fast as he exits.
Just gonna leave it up for now and I'll see what I can do about it in the meantime.
Please comment and tell me how it looks for you!


EDIT 2:
Seems like I was able to fix the lagging, so I've uploaded it in 540p for now, might get it up to HD later on.
I drew it in 1440p to fit my monitor haha, so it's pretty big!

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning! Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died. Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in you

Damn, this is good! Now just imagine if you made a whole episode or movie? The time and work would be immense but it would top most professional works in animation. Even if you did animated shorts, you could get a lot of attention with this quality.

Extremely well done. One thing I might add, when you animate, like KatrinaCurio said, there's an anticipation factor before the action. Also, maybe a little bit of hang in the air before the quick drop. The gestural movement is off the chain. Overall, excellenté, I envy this :)

Calling all animators with Anime Studio Pro 6! I am making a cartoon for a web series, and with my lack of animation skills it will take me more years than i planned to make this. as you can see from my profile picture, i am a skilled artist at progams like adobe photoshop. i am a good Anime studio artist but have lesser skill when it comes to animating. to get details on our project you must join by emailing me at commanderdudes@gmail.com
I look foward to working with you all
(there will be no payment until the project is a sucess and we sell merchandise acroos the web)

I like it. One thing I noticed though, is that there isn't any anticipation. Pikachu just jumps up and off he goes. There is no slight crouch to spring him forward, so it looks a little odd. Just an observation. Good work!

Haha thanks, there is a one frame crouch where his ears prick up and his body leans forward and down, but thats about all I had time for at that point haha
