I wanted to try to animate this little guy for months now, he's just so fun to draw xD I love this dragon. And I wanted to see if I was able to make a good animation of him, so I did that today. Well I'm quite pleased with it :lol: I can't help but think "HOW CUTE" with the way Mushu moves his head there LOL. But I hope I did him justice too <w<

This took about 2 hours to make...:iconhmm-plz: And it was lots of fun xD I feared his body would be incredibly hard to animate since I have a problem with animating tails/ Snake-like stuff, but I think it looks good here!

I'd really love to lineart and colour this one... But once again I'll have to try hard not to lose my motivation on this :XD: Plus I have another animation WIP which I just WANT to get finished at all cost. Sooo wish me luck :iconheaddeskplz: And enjoy!

Made with: GIMP 2.4.6
Time taken: About 2 hours.

Mushu Created by ~tombancroft, and one of the characters in the Mulan movie, by Disney.

Look, if your going to be rude and complain that your "precious" time was wasted because YOU wanted to see this animation, which I think is AWESOME, then DON'T comment at all please. Skye does not wish to waste her own time with someone who is just jealous of her talent.

Thanks a lot! :lol: I'm glad you like it! I remember that Mulan was the very first movie I watched in theaters xD Disney movies have always been a huge inspiration to me, and it's one of the reasons that being an animator someday has become one of my biggest dreams.
