Wow geeze finally submitting this! This little gal's the result of almost a full week of work! Huge shout out to everyone in my WIP thread and the challenge thread!
This thing wouldn't of been marginally as good as it is now without all of you! (as you can tell from my first animation attempt!)
By far my most complex animation yet, and I'm pretty satisfied with it. That said, totally not completely satisfied, and feel free to drop me a message in the WIP thread with any advice! I'll try to get it fixed up and added to after the challenge ends!
edit: Totally blown away by the response! Thanks everyone!
