This is my practice animation for my original digital painting. I wanted to see if I could emulate the animation style of League of Legends, a popular online game. I thought animating a simple few variables animation would be easiest. In this case, the only variables are the hair and eyes. Compared to League of Legends' animations, this is really nothing.
To do the animation, I used the puppet pin tool in After Effects. This was basically for everything. The eye blink was simply key-framing three different images of open, half-open, and closed eyes.
Of course, I also added a slight particle effect over it and sounds.
I think this was really fun to make. I actually wanted to make this because I had a passion for it. Sometimes I feel like I'm forced to make things, but this time I did it for myself.
