My first attempt in puppet animation
I followed a tutorial made by "Doble Rainboom" and i algo got the puppet and the background from them. The idea is mine tough. Yeah i know its boring, but hey, it's my first time ;)
It took me like 4 hours for the rough animation, and almost a whole day for the puppet part. Totally worth it for a 2 sec animation, i dont care xD
I really appreciate any critique or advise, so i can get better, so go on, dont be shy :D
BTW, about the apple... Yeah i was lazy xD
Also, sorry about the size, :/ you might have to ctrl+mouse scroll to see it right :(

Edit: I changed a few thing. I added a wing cycle, i added a longer wait for the apple, in addition with a inhale-exale, and blink. I also changed the eyes at the end

Well done! I like how you added her breathing. The part where her mouth is on the side looks a bit odd but overall it looks good!

Maybe add some shine and color to the apple? It looks very plain and doesn't quite fit in. Also, her wings are animated oddly. The breathing thing doesn't look right as well.

Suggestions? Well, I'd recommend not having RD breathe visibly through her chest beforehand. In the show, they only really breathe when they're gasping, and even then I think it's mostly through the belly. The motion really draws the eye and there's no real point to it. Other than that, it all looks pretty good. Nice work!

Nice, but how damn big is that Flash file? I'm using 1920x1080 resolution and it already went over the edge. :( Could have been smaller to just 720p would do.

Anyway,oops, worm in that apple.

The throat feels a bit froggish at the beginning (maybe needed an extra keyframe to make RD look more 'snappy' and the apple doesn't have any mass to it. Good work though!

her knee is a bit lumpy, but it's alot better than i could have done.
