Swanky Lad by PSYSpace Swanky Lad by PSYSpace
I wanted to do a goofy, tiny animation while I was wasting away on a promo stand at London Bridge station last year. Finally came back to finish it after about 3 months, for completion's sake.

On a side note the chalkboard aesthetic is such a brilliantly lazy cop-out. Linework looks like garbage? It's chalk, that's why. Definitely an artistic choice and not uninspired laziness...

Made using Krita!

Glad you finished it! Psh it's not a cop-out, just a smart stylistic choice haha o v o Overall it's really smooth and the speedlines make it even livelier and fun~

Thanks Jester. I actually wanted to go full Chuck Jones style and smear the frames from pose to pose, but I kept screwing it up so I had to add lots of inbetweens anyway =.=

Haha it's hard letting go and really go crazy with the poses/swaush&stretch and forms
tried it a few times myself. But it looks awesome anyways, so you "failed" beautifully

Yeah, I'm not sure what it is either. It's got a goatee though so it's probably at least somewhat villainous =P

Nice animation! And the chalkboard look is real creative! 

and it's totally not lazy.. it's reminiscent of old animations ;)

I always have trouble believing that the easier option is often the better option, so you might be right there.

Thanks SOS

No problem :)

And I will say, with your animations, the thumbnails always catch my attention when I'm going through my deviations. Very smooth and nicely weighted animations and you keep trying new and interesting artistic styles ^_^

I'm a bit lukewarm on the anticipation actually. Something about it bothers me for some reason 0.o

Thanks regardless!
