I'm not exactly a fan of this style thing but twas required to do. My head turn is only mild though because Smiley's head was already sort of set up in three quarter view.
The fur tuft to the left of the pic glitches at the end. Tis because this is not really supposed to be a loop, but I looped it anyway cause you might miss it entirely if you have internet like me that doesn't load extra fast. The fur tuft on the right side of the pic needs to be changed into its own symbol so that it can move freely me thinks, but MEH. I did not want to.
Mah instructor calls it 2.5d |P thus the preview thing.

Like the dramatic type of head-turn?

Nah =o just showing that you can distort shapes to fake the motion of a turning head without actually redrawing anything. Tis part of my homework.

I've always wondered what non-grade-school homework would be like. Then I met, like, six college/university/other folks, and now I don't have to wonder.

It's kind of scary how much smoother your animation skills have gotten. The more you do the more realistic your skill set will become and the more versatile your range will be.

Gotta say, for something so simple, I'm very impressed.

I don't particularly like the smooth kind X3 I like the older style of animation lol.
Although this itself was really pretty easy =o the other took a lot more work this was mostly moving things like...3 times I think? for all the head layers and distorting the shapes some. Then it was just a lot of timing and technical things like easing in and out.

Oh you mean like, the choppier transition?

Even so, this is something I could never do. I actually saw your other one as well and it seems you've gotten even smoother at animating mouth movements when it comes to speech.  It may not look coherent at the time since there's no audible works being spoken but it does look natural enough I must confess.

Not exactly 'choppy' just more like umm old school cartoons =o Think bugs bunny.
I'm not sure what the actual difference is XD Just like how stuff seems to move =p I tend to like frame by frame (when its done well) better than modern flash look. But it also takes 490538934058039 more time XD

Yes =o That I have for sure. Should be natural enough =o Had to make an alphabet worth of mouths. (Which is all it really is right now. It isn't arranged to say anything, tis just the alphabet of mouths if you will XD)

That's actually the first thing that came to mind, with that being "Looney Tunes". I probably just didn't think of the right word to describe it. xP

Ooh, yeah I've actually seen something like that before.  A diagram of how the lips look when making the sound of something. Something like this: 3.bp.blogspot.com/_aXdegmG6mm0… Probably helps to keep a phoenetic diagram on hand for times like that.

It's okay XD neither of us know the right word to describe it but apparently were thinking of the same thing XDXD

And yep =o tis what my clsas was teaching me as well =p and then to customize it to your particular character .o.

I wonder if it gets more difficult the more you have to apply it to different characters, especially if they express themselves wildly different from some of your other characters who may at least be similar in way of expressing themselves.

:iconsmilehkitteh:
SmilehKitteh Featured By Owner May 20, 2014  Professional Writer
Expressions are fairly simple actually =o........well when its just the mouth/eyes anyway. When it starts distorting the entire face that would be more difficult.
Well they are for me anyway I should say. Since expression is generally my strong point.
