There seems to be some sort of frame rate-y thing going on towards the feet, but nonetheless very impressive :)

Yeah, it's a tedious process, I should know.

This kind of animation is traditional.

There's many ways to animate things, but I do believe this creature is made by 'redrawing' the creature many times over, but altering the body and mainly limbs  to make the creature "move."

Ah ok cool ^^ Btw, what program do you use? Because ever since my brother showed me this "flipnote studio" app on his DSI that he used to make animations, (it shows the previous slide in the background just fainter so you can see it and color on top of it to make movement and stuff) I started looking for stuff like that online.

SwankyShadow Featured By Owner Aug 21, 2013  Student Filmographer
I used TVPaint for this, I think you can get a free trial but you can't save work :( I use flipnote studio too :) I don't know of any online programs sorry, but Adobe Flash have a 30 day free trial if you want to give that a go? It has onion skinning too (where you can see the image you drew before) :)

Btw, I saw you had a preview thing that was slightly different from the image (it had writing on it). How do you do that?

The preview pic is an option when you're submitting your gif, I just saved a single frame of the animation as a jpeg/png etc.... and added in text :)

Great animation and desing! However, there is a major volume change problem. He looks more like he is shrinking rather than squashing. Other than that the timing is excellent!
