Winter by SwissCheesy Winter by SwissCheesy
Frames: 349
Layers: ~150 (without copy layers for slide progress. Snow animation alone has 41 manually made layers)

I can finally go to bed. (I started at 8pm, didn't go to sleep, and finished around 2pm today. Woooot~)

Lots of detail, moving, adding, trying out...sure was a blast! I started making this animation about 3 years ago or so, never got around finishing it...so now I did, during the fitting season, at all cost before going out for my vacation. Made it! =P

Undertale OST helped me through this, but mostly thanks to this one I was kept sane:  Unterdale - Hotel Extended

I hope you enjoy this animation!

Moving every needed layer (background, emoticon, SNOW oh god that needed effort) pixel by pixel into the right direction. Not kidding that it took over 20 hours. And I'll do it again eventually! :la:

It looks like a cold winter day but it makes me feel warm. 
It's wonderful.

Wonderfully said! I did try to make it more "stormy" at the beginning, but then decided to keep it simple with brighter colors. The result is the cheerful animation you see. :giggle:

I like the detail how the snowman gets crossed eyes when the guy grabs it and raises up the top half and goes between as a fourth ball. :P

Aaah, some old comments over here, too.

Yeah, I figured there's a snowman needed somewhere, but not in a classic way. :dummy:

Ah, winter. The only good thing you get from it is christmas, food, presents, and a profit from shovelling snow.

:iconswisscheesy:
SwissCheesy Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017
For me it's rather: too much food because Croatian family habits; combined, less-value presents because birthday on 20th of December; can't shovel snow because we got town service for that here. And everything else is too frozen to work with. :shrug:

Dang, that is pure dedication to work tirelessly at something that must require a lot of attention and focus on something so small! Nevertheless, it's a great piece. Very cute, fun, and a perfect tribute to winter and all the joy it can bring. 

The animation is smooth, nicely paced, and very enjoyable to watch.

Nice work! I hope you got all of your sleep after that. :D

:iconswisscheesy:
SwissCheesy Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2017
Yes, dedication is a tiresome but rewarding thing...a big screen plus zoom also helps to work with those small things. :giggle:

Thanks, that's wonderful! I'm always trying to make it as smooth as possible, there's nothing worse than unclean animation that kills the effort as a whole.

And yes, I did get enough sleep. =p

Haha, I bet! 

I'll take your word for it, as I've never animated before, but from an onlooker's point of view, I'd say it make a difference. 

Very good! ^^

Maybe a Yeti, maybe someone doing something shady in the woods? At least we know it landed on its face while trying to hop over the fence. :giggle:

Yeah, I thought it's a detail that shouldn't be missing. Was totally worth to spend time on that though. =P
