I did a thing a while ago, and one of my friends mentioned I should upload it here, and then I did (eventually)! 

Fighting game sized sprites are my favourite thing, I should do another one sometime~

Thanks for looking!

Such a hypnotic animation.  This piece is so very well done!  I like how the full-color sprite comes as a surprise from seeing the monochrome preview.  The movement in her face, breaking up the repetition, goes above and beyond what one would have expected.  The thin strands of hair sliding out from her curls are a neat touch.  You did a great job!

love the detail on the bouncy hair, wow!

(btw, there's a typo on the preview image, it spells "preveiw")

I thought I'd faved this already.. I had it zoomed in on my screen for a while just for eye candy's sake. So good and her expression is sweet.

 That's oppa gangnam style? Hahaha

DragonDePlatino (Level 5 Detective) @ 1/12/2013 09:02

 Well shaded, amazing, fluid sprite! Fantastic work!

Wayne (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/11/2013 23:23

Originally saw this on your blog and loved it!  I agree, there's a great sense of weight achieved by how much you've overlapped the bow and hair.  

I really like how you broke up the cycle in the face, and also the slight tilts you have on the head.  Very nice and very solid.  Good luck on Skylark!

big brother (Level 11 Admiral) @ 1/11/2013 14:34

Love this! The high contrast on the facial features work well to attract the eye. The delay in the hair's movement gives it solid, believable weight. With this style, you can really showcase your animation talent without getting caught up with shading and AA. Well done!

JerryPie (Level 11 Big Foot) @ 1/11/2013 10:56

This is a quality animation. No crits.

Clairvoire (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/11/2013 10:14

Thanks for all the kind words folks, I really appreciate it!  I have to upload more stuff here in the future~

Clairvoire (Level 1 Gangster) @ 1/11/2013 10:09

Yeah, I was not 100% happy with how the bangs animated.  I spent a long time tweaking them, and in the end I was happy to just have them avoid creating tangents or obscuring portions of her face, while still having a flow to how they move. 

The ribbon though, I wanted to have a great deal of weight.  So I made it as though it was trying to catch up to her head, and maintain that momentum when she tosses her head in the opposite direction, slightly compressing and lifting upwards until she tilts away from it again and it can relax.  Though, I think I could've conveyed that a lot better as well, and have the middle of the bow follow the head much more closely.

Thanks for the critique~  

Theoden (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/11/2013 05:44

Nice to see this here too! I think I am the one who said that you should upload it here :)

yrizoud (Level 6 Aquamarine) @ 1/11/2013 05:31

There's something that I thought felt unnatural, and after studying the animation for a long time I think I pinpointed it : The head has a subtle movement that indicates it tilts toward one shoulder at a time. The bangs don't follow completely, but it's not distracting since it's discrete. However, the bow (ribbon) in hair lags so much behind the head movement that it is completely inverted, it doesn't seem connected at all.

 Glad to know that sealark has been sucsessfuly funded!

Looks cute!

Semont (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/10/2013 22:39

That blink and the extra head tilt to the left every three bounces makes this piece that much better.

Keep on pixelin!

sasuke91 (Level 2 Kukyu) @ 1/10/2013 20:05

lol cute ^-^

Sneep29 (Level 4 Deputy) @ 1/10/2013 17:03

This is great! Made my whole week. : )))))

Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 1/10/2013 16:00

 Saw this back on TigForums, it is SO GOOD 

Stasis (Level 2 Corporal) @ 1/10/2013 14:43

This would be good as a still, but the smooth animation makes it fantastic. I love the colors. Very crisp.

Stickman (Level 7 Sheriff) @ 1/10/2013 14:28

Cute character and a wonderful idle animation.

Lexou Duck (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 1/10/2013 14:06

the cell shading gives a great idea of depth, it really feels like 3D

well done !

skittle (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/10/2013 13:43

 The bouncing of the curls is spot on!

Ashkin (Level 8 Rear Admiral) @ 1/10/2013 13:18

Second time seeing it, but it's still so amazing.

Benjiro (Level 8 Shodan) @ 1/10/2013 12:36

i love it

Marurun (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 1/10/2013 12:28

The strands of hair that bounce out away from the curls is my favorite part. Very smooth.

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/10/2013 12:14

 I've seen this somewhere, maybe tigsource. Great work, such a fluid animation
