Running animation

on: June 09, 2020, 10:46:16 pm
Hi everyone! Here's my try at animation. I'm not sure if that's clear but the character is supposed to run around with a tray screaming "hot hot hot" as if the tray was burning him. I was wondering how I could improve this piece. I spent some time trying to make the running more convincing but it still doesn't look good. Maybe the typography (and everything else) is changing too fast but I wanted to convey the feeling that he's in a big hurry. I wanted to place something on the tray but it looked bad and you couldn't tell what's that supposed to be so I removed that.

I like it! only thing what is the red thing flapping around? his tongue? a scarf? if you want to plat to look hot, shouldn't his arm holding the plate be red? I assume his other arm is the black piece extended in front of him(and not his jaw). and the scarf/tongue should be some other color IMHO.

Edit:


...so his mouth is open(couldn't see the teeth in the browser). ...so where's his other arm then?

Thank you for your suggestions!
I changed the color of his teeth to make it more visible and to limit the color palette. I also added another arm and made the other red.

Maybe the torso esp. the crotch area should come down one pixel too? Right now it looks like that part is fixed in place while he's flailing his legs.
But overall it's pretty funny looking, I like it.
