Behold Mora by Ravietta Behold Mora by Ravietta
Here's your random reassurement that Ravi is not dead! Yaay! I've been working for quite a while, thought my fingers got stiff, so I animated this piece. And guess what? Seems like I'm quite in shape, so tomorrow I'm back to animating your commissions (and hopefully taking more of them shortly, yaay!).

Now, who is Mora? What is that furry thing she's holding?
Mora is one of the main characters from the book I'm writing. I've come up with her one night, writing another bloody scene with Eriu. Why? Easy. Comedy. Mora is laugh, Mora is innocence, Mora will help the plot move forward, giving me an opportunity to explain things to the potential reader.
Now, she's holding a R.O.U.S. thingy, for which I did not get a name yet. Donno if I will, maybe it was just an idea for an animation that I'm gonna abandon once it will come to writing it.

ANYWAY, you probably want to know the mechanics.
Done with Adobe Photoshop CS6, no idea how much time I have spent on this one, but it's got 186 frames (mind you, that's the longest animation I posted on dA, so I consider it my personal record). That's almost 15 seconds. WHOA, right?

Your animations are amazing. Their mouth movements are subtle but perfectly paired with the words and I love the hand gestures! Awesome!

I love how your style reminds me of disney!!! Like, the way you draw characters looks like some disney characters for so many reasons ^^ The second girl you animated in this especially made me think of Belle from Beauty and the Beast!

I must say that you are my inspiration for starting animation. I love your smoothe animation style, it really looks great. especially the way Mora says 'No', that is just so cute and I have never seen such a nice animated 'no' in my life! Keep up the good work! I love your drawings and especially your animations! :)

EEEK! that four eyed cat like thing is adorable! I want to squish it with love! <3 and i love his little face and his mouth. so cute

LOVE the way this is animated! I took a class on traditional animation in high school (which was an art school for me) but I could never grasp how people do it so well, so I stopped. but this is amazing!! and the expressions are priceless!

very inspiring animation! kinda makes me want to try it again. and 186 frames;15 seconds? WOW!
