Slowtiger, over on the LM forum, posted a challenge to animate a gif he posted. Here's his gif and my go at it.

Very well done! The mouth movements are fantastic, and the eyeblink, just great!

Thanks Ulrik. Here's one with some extra shading, another blink, and some accentuation of the smile animation.

48 frames rotoscoped/traced?
Never mind, I see you have 2 poses where she turns her head to the left and the gif has one.

Awesome job!

Yeah, I did more head turn than the source gif. No rotoscoping at all, but I did trace the first frame of the gif to save time. All of the animation is only roughly based on the source.

Not to be sexist or anything, but your girl is much cuter, Wes (no offense to the Real Thing intended).

Very nice indeed. I had thought at first you rotoscoped it, but after looking it at more closely you put more pauses and emphasis on the smile and eyes, which is for the better.

Also, as I mentioned at the other forum, you are fast!

Thanks guys.

Yeah, Neeters, I maybe had about 2-4 hours in this, including construction. Just animated it with the source gif playing off to one side. I like yours as well:

Very nice use of animation principles such as exaggeration and anticipation.

That's amazing. It took me almost 4 hours just to do my little demo. Anyway, thanks for posting my example and the kudos. I didn't want to invade your thread.
