After years and years of struggle, I come online again to proudly present: This. A Kiss. 
Commissioned by :iconinkierose:

Done with Adobe Photoshop CS6, 3 seconds, 42 frames, 14fps. If you feel the itch to ask: don't. It took me waaaaay too much time to complete this, for which I am truly sorry.

The facial expressions are literally the best thing ever!
KayleensWorld Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2016
That's the best animation I have ever seen in my life, how did you even put It in deviant art, I think I get It how you can put It in YouTube but in deviant art... WOW
PuddinPandaLover Featured By Owner Oct 2, 2016
Save it as a gif I think

im probably the 5,000th person to ask this, but you basically animated using a drawing software? No toonboom or flash or anything? Cuz I do the same thing :D These are very neat and clean lines for this kind of animation process. Mine are very messy.
Ravietta Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2016  Professional
I did it from start to finish in Photoshop.  
As for the messiness of your lines - it's okay. The messier the more you experimented with your work, and messy lines always look nice. I love that sketchy feel about the motion picture, used to have it sketchy once but it got cleaner with time. I shed many tears over this, now I'm cheating using a pencil brush u-u 
droppingravityfalls Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
oh wow! So you understand the struggle of making a 3 second clip 0-0
And that makes me feel a lot better XD
You must have a lot of motivation to do all of those animations with this process. I get very bored and impatient when animating so I barely do any, which also prevents me from practicing to get better.
The way I do it is in Manga Studio 5 and I draw every single frame as a new layer then I export ALL the files and put them together on a GIF website. It also doesn't help that the website ( never puts them in order so it takes even longer to put them together because it doesn't show the file names either. I number all of them to help but it doesn't show the names so I get confused easily

Oh god, that sounds terrible o.o Would bite my fingers off if I had to put my animations together that way. Kudos for the patience with that.
I struggle with the monotony of animating by watching tv series in the background at the same time. Helps in distracting yourself from feeling constantly frustrated better than any music ever would.
droppingravityfalls Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah i usually have music playing. What do you use to put your frames together?
Ravietta Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2016  Professional
Photoshop, dear. It is possible to save your animation as gif file in there :)
droppingravityfalls Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Aw crap I don't have photoshop DX
Well I can always find another GIF website.
Thank you so much for the information!

I love it!
ndunsmo Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2016
Every time I see something like this, I can't help but wonder why such talented people aren't at least making their own web shows.  Then I remember how much work even a few seconds of animation like this takes and it makes sense.
Ravietta Featured By Owner Jan 9, 2016  Professional
You hit the nail right in the head, brother.

hi i am looking to buy a tablet. i am new to digital art have been a pen and paper girl for years and was wondering if you could recommend a tablet for beginners thanks
Ravietta Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2015  Professional
I never had to choose a tablet for myself, and I've only worked on one, good ol' Wacom Intuos. You could try that maybe?
malara-art Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
Your work is spectacular. Just curious, do you always work in PS or do you ever use other software?
Aliencon Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2015
This is really good.  Too bad commissions from you are currently closed.  When do you plan on opening them up again?
