Phew! This took some time to complete, but I'm glad it's ready! OK, here's the scoop on this submission!

You see, Lenny :icond-warrior35: has this review show and features this adorable character named Shinko. She's super interesting, but the problem is that her animation is really limited (she changes poses at one frame per second). Thus, I decided to lend a hand animating her. Over the course of animating her, however, I learned a lot of things that I'll consider the next time I decide to animate in a non-spriting position.

1. I learned that I am slow at inking and coloring. In the future, I'll see if I can get someone else to do it.

2. Even if I'll just be penciling the animation, it's still a very tedious process because I have to do all the tweening myself without the aid of special tweening functions, which Flash isn't good at compared to other animation programs. Even though I like a program that allows me to do frame by frame animation, some better tweening functions wouldn't actually hurt.

3. In regards to my last statement, I should consider animating Shinko (and other characters) in another program, such as Anime Studio Pro or Maya. Not only will the tweening problem be settled, but I'll be able to make less mistakes in proportions (Shinko's arms are a good example of this blunder) and how characters actually move (Chaos' laughing and Shinko's Pikachu transformation are examples of this). Thus, I'll stick with those other programs until I find an animator who will help me in the tweening process and fix all my animation goofs.

Of course, despite some flaws and distractions (a few art trades, side projects, and YouTube videos are the blame), this came out pretty well. To me, the animation is really smooth and I used some techniques to become a more experienced animator. With this done, I am ready to work on the art trades and commisions I have yet to do!

Yes, I animated the whole thing. It wasn't easy, but animation can be fun to do. If only I did t more often, though...

An idea, huh? What do you have in mind, son?

I don't know...but you seemed to like inflation?

Yes, as long as it is relatively tame.

I admire your work as an animator. Yes, animation, especially by yourself, is a long and tedious process.

Inflation is not good for the economy. It's also not my thing, but this is also your work (save for Shinko but no duh XP) and I can see that you put just as much effort to animate it, so I say keep it, if only just so that no one my be deprived of the work that you've done on it.

Ah! I see it as a real treat to gain the attention of Shinko's original artist (and voice actress)! Yes, you wouldn't believe how hard it was to create those tests. It was even harder to make it so that all the animation was smooth. By any chance, have you ever tried to animate anything before?

Anyway, I had a hunch that you didn't like inflation. Fortunately, you'll be pleased to know that this will be the only case that Shinko will ever inflate! Thus, the economy (as far as you and Lenny are concerned) will remain happy!

LOL XD

Yes, I have animated simple stuff by hand. You know, sketching and then putting it all frame by frame? Yeah, it HURTS. XD Too tedious for my taste.

Anyways, thank YOU for actually taking the time to animate something like this! It's really great. ^_^

You're welcome! I'm looking forward to doing something similar when I become a guest animator on your show!

Oh wow...this is....really good!! (Though I don't care much for the inflation...sorry, not my thing ><)


:iconyaminaki31: Is Shinko's artist for the show. Your animation is amazing but, I could never replace Yami, since the show is half hers and all. Perhaps animated Shinko would be better for like a 'special episode'. But I think Shinko being half-animated is part of her charm ^_^

But don't think I'm discounting you or your work, it's really good! I'd love to call upon you for like, a special or something (Since the show is going in an 'alternate universe' direction for the story, but you didn't hear that from me >_>)

While I am disappointed that I won't get to work with Shinko on a regular basis, I am also revealed because if I have to animate her all the time, I might go bananas!

Anyway, I had a hunch that you wouldn't have me permanently work with Shinko anyway (especially since you're so used to her being animated in a limited way). In fact, the main point of this is to demonstrate what I can do for the show if I was hired for at least one episode. Your praise for my skills and some consideration makes for a good reward for now. Although I have to recover from animating something on this scale, I would love to work with Shinko another day!

By the way, the inflation thing is just something I had to get out of my system! If I ever animate her for real, I'll be sure not to do that!

I'm glad your taking this well. Your animation really IS good, but :iconyaminaki31: and I built this show from the ground up, I couldn't possibly replace her. But like I said, your skills could be useful for a special episode or something.

And yeah, I know it's something you have to get out of your system, lol

Say, will you ever consider becoming an animator yourself? It might require a lot of work, but the rewards are great for both your viewers and yourself.
