Animated: An Eventful Day, A Quiet Night by chibiBiscuit Animated: An Eventful Day, A Quiet Night by chibiBiscuit
Despite Cee's plan of spending the day loafing around the house, the day had been an eventful one. Between a sudden rainstorm caused by a pair of distracted weather pegasi, a batch of magically enchanted muffins (of which Tea ate six), and a freak accident involving three barrels of 'Quik-Gro Crop Enhancing Formula', things had escalated (along with Tea's height) to a point where Cee's calm, relaxing day had been unexpectedly overridden by his special somepony's propensity for growth.

However, as the last rays of daylight faded and the creaking of the barn harmonized with the soft sighs of Tea's breathing, Cee found himself at peace. It had been an eventful day. But he had been fortunate enough to spend it with the one pony he cared about most. With that thought, he smiled, snuggled into his wife's fluffy form, and drifted off to sleep.


Hey folks. ^_^

So, one of the days I was sick, I couldn't make it into work, and one of the doodles that I started that morning ended up becoming a full-on animation, because I clearly don't understand what 'taking it easy' means. I wanted to add more smoothing, and add a few more layers of shadows and highlights, but when I reached this point the art app I was using crashed and refused to work on the file anymore. Probably something about the 406 layers in the file. But there's some good news to this - I was able to get a deal on a PC drawing tablet from Monoprice, and that's going to open up the possibility of using some real animation programs instead of just doing it all manually in LayerPaint HD. So maybe, just maybe, the next animation you see from me will be something a little smoother and more complicated than what I've done so far. :D 

Also, real talk, I want to say thank you to Takai - I've been run down, sick and just altogether not at my best this month, and she's been so patient, and so caring, and I'm so lucky to have her taking care of me right now. Thank you for being the best part of my life, and for holding me together when I really feel like I'm falling apart. I love you.

Anyhow, I hope you all are having a great week - the next page of TSOSB is on it's way! I'm currently working on inking it, and will continue dropping WIP updates on Patreon.

Thank you so much!

I really like doing animation, it just takes so much time... I'm hopeful now that I have the right tools and an application that can handle it, I'll be able to do a lot more with these. Maybe even something where all the characters aren't asleep! :D

I want to learn how to do cute little animations like these! 

Just...everything about this is amazing and beautiful and just.... CUTE! ♥

I would really not recommend LayerPaint as an animation program. If you're interested though, I believe that FireAlpaca has some animation tools, and it's a nice free Windows equivalent to LayerPaint.

You should definitely give animation a shot though, it's hard work, but once you bring something to life like this it's never quite the same. :D

Seriously! ^u^ One thing is drawing, another is animation! Making the picture come even more alive! Like here for example! It's just a simple breathing animation ....but I'm sure that took a long time to do owo;; you did an excellent job! I love it!

And ohh, okay! I'll try FireAlpaca! Thanks for the suggestion! ^u^ gotta start somewhere!

In other news.... surprise drawing is still in process... Just letting you know ouo I know Dave sent you a sample, but that's not what I had in mind >< its still something BIG! (Hehe cx )

Thank you so much. :) I worked really hard at this. There would probably be a lot less layers if my application actually supported frames and onion skinning. In this one, each frame is a folder of 30 some layers that I tweaked and manipulated.
