[AvA - ROUND 2] Journey by Lunar-Wind [AvA - ROUND 2] Journey by Lunar-Wind

>>> WATCH ON YOUTUBE HERE <<<


be sure to +watch me if you like this piece, because I'll be making more art like this :eyes:

For Round 2 of the Artist vs. Artist competition over at #Elementiiae! The theme was "traveling a road that I did not know", and my opponent for this round is =shadowthecat971.

This took more than a week to finish, what with the animation and one-layer painting and trying to throw it all together in AfterEffects, which kept freezing on me haha, but overall it was fun to make and I'm happy with how it came out! For this round, I wanted to try something new instead of revisiting the exact same thing I did before, so I stepped it up a notch and switched things up a bit - horizontal scrolling and animation!

aaww *hugs* ;v; thank you, i'm glad i could inspire you! we all go through tough times sometimes, and the path is not always certain.. but sticking together, whether it's with one friend or many, means you'll be there to help each other up off the ground and continue the journey or just lay there in good company for a while.

You are too very welcome! :huggle: And yus! At least once.  

And ya, i have so many friends that always make me happy, before i was lost and i didn't really like anyone in my new school because i was suffering badly. After a few months everyone tried to help me, and i was scared of making some new friends. Now i have some really good friends, and even a boyfriend that really takes care of me. They saved me basically.

Wow...it was touching seeing what you've written there QvQ. That's what one of my friend told me when she was about the pass away due to a cancel. QvQ
I love everything you did. From the smooth animation, to the depth of your writting. The entry just fit the theme perfectly like two pieces of puzzle. 
Great job Lunar! Hope you will success with your entry <3

I was beginning to wonder when your entry would show! ;P 

Your walking animation is so smooth <3 omg~ I've never been able to get a really smooth one like that

Wow~ thanks for including Rose <3 I can see the amount of work you included in that <3 I'm still working on mine hah :XD:

thanks! it just takes a lot of frames and practice haha, this particular loop is 10 frames long and took a lot of tweaking (animating quads is harder than anthros.. an extra set of legs!)

and no problem <3 I was wondering what happened to you haha, good luck!! c:
