Just testing to see if I could actually animate anything, so I ended up with the oh so boring (and over used) sleeping animal...

Any c+c is very welcome, as this is my first attempt at animating anything.

Also, this was made on a white background, and intended to be used on white, so it may not look so good on a coloured backing :\

'Tis rather extreme, but I was going more for 'characature' anyway. Plus, first animation, so it's something to learn from.

Thanks for the input :)

The inflatoback went a tad too far, I think.
Otherwise, great animation.
I like the hair moving.

Yeah, I was actually debating making his wing move when I was making, but ultimately I was feeling to lazy at the time. Though, I think that's something I'll add when I fix the shading on his side (heh, as usual I find something that irratates me).

Thanks muchly for the advice

It's a simple animation, but it looks great. I like the way his tail and little pompador hairstyle move.  The only suggestion I can think of is to make his wings move up with the rest of his body as he breathes in. I think that would make it look more like his stomach is expanding instead of his back. Everything else is great. Everybody likes penguins.

Indeed, I'd be worried if a spine did do that, but the animation is intended as a characture, or more in the vein of a cartoon, not as a acurate portayal of an animal's anatomy.

Thanks for the input though :)

Ummm...why is his back going up and down like that? I mean, a spine doesn't bend like that. If you wanted that movement he would need to be on his stomach.
