Ye olde Tumblr of Katie Better.

Delibird is the Oprah Winfrey of Pokemon.

So while Delibird throws you all presents, I’ll throw you my process for planning out these gifs.

From bottom to top… It starts with some golden keys, or “storytelling” frames. I want Delibird to stand there, reach in his bag, and then toss a present. Bam.

Next, I add breakdown frames, beginning with the head, then body, feet, face, etc. Breakdowns determine /how/ you want everything to move. I add the overlapping things (like his wings and eyebrows) last. Then inbetweens. This particular gif was done on 2’s.

Finally I ink that sucker, and add some flat colors.

Happy holidays! Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the wonderful world of animation!
