Spent 10 minutes looking for the right category so I hope it works


I've been working on this for two whole days, and I'm glad I did :lol: It's the first time I actually finished some serious animation, and first time animating a walking character. I'm really pleased with it c3
I definitely want to make more in the future! I had lots of fun making this one.

Next step: Skye singing to a song, YES.

Little reminder that I'm a complete amateur at this, I only made it the way I felt it should be. I used no ref either so there must be mistakes here and there xD So if any animator student/ professional sees this, tips and tricks are more than welcome :heart:


Drawn and animated with: PS CS5.
Number of frames: 10

Skye and animation © Me.

I love Skye's body :meow: it's slender but you can easily see muscle and nice contours~. I know I've said it before, but you really understand how bodies are put together and how anatomy should be :3 excellent job! :heart:

Well I was just watching this for like five minutes because it's so beautiful and I noticed his far front paw seems to get smaller, other than just the angle and such I mean, which would imply it moving away from the viewer a bit (like he's moving his paw in a thin oval rather than just forwards and back), but I don't see his other front paw moving towards us. Then again I am tired and his feet move a bit fast so maybe I'm imagining things. xD

Does anyone no who created the character skye? 
I have seen him in a a lot of pictures, but I haven't seen him in any of the spyro games....
Artytodd Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013
.... you do not know your Spyro. He is an oc for god sake!
FaIIenShadows Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
You don't need to be rude! Skye is a fan made character, where is he the original Spyro character?
Contarai Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2013   General Artist
Skye is *Fourth-Star's character. don't worry, I'm not just looking at whoever made the animation and making a blind assumption XD I do know this.
FaIIenShadows Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Wait, I thought that Cynder-and-spyro-fan owned this character?!?!
Cheteah Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2013
*Fourth-Star IS Cynder-and-spyro-fan xD
She just made a new account because of the past...
FaIIenShadows Featured By Owner Sep 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist

Sweet, cause I have seen other people use the character, and wasn't sure weather it belonged to someone.
BriandTanq Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
in what program do you made it, do you have to pay for it?
fizzymoth Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It says she drew it and animated it in Photoshop CS5
Photoshop does cost money, like. I think it costs a loooot. ;_;

But you can buy Photoshop Elements for around $100. It's about the same thing, just less awesome and you can't do as much.
I have Photoshop Elements 8
it costed $100 at the time, I bought it in year 2009
so if anything it may even be cheaper now ^-^
you can animate with it, you'll just have to learn how to do it
and it's hard
I can only do blinking and stuff like that om

I always did want the name Skye... great job! it's all smooth, real neat... unlike my stuff T^T wish I could be as great at animating someday, but right now I gots to work on improving art... keep up da good work!
Vallitan Featured By Owner May 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
honestly, do you work for a proper animation company? because im starting to wonder, with skills like yours you must be a professional.
Acayth Featured By Owner May 7, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I really like how you have animated the legs and the way the wings move up and down in contrary with every step. Only the tail should actually move twice as fast up and down,with every hind leg which is moving forwards again. That tail movement implyes, that your dragon has only three legs, because its only focused on the left hind leg of the dragon.

Eh bien euuuh je suis étudiate en animation depuis cette année... Si tu veux j'ai bien un ou deux conseils à te prodiguer à partir de mon début d'expérience pour corriger des fautes, mais elles sont assez mineures :3
Reshiramandsuicune Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
How did you do that! Its amazing!
Kelskora Featured By Owner Apr 24, 2013
