Gallery Folders



Hey guys, just wanted to let you know that a folder for tutorials and references has been added.  If you have any useful animation tips up on dA, feel free to submit.  As for everyone else, hopefully you'll get some use out of it!

More Journal Entries


- You don't have to actually make any gifs to be in this group. Anyone can join!

- You're allowed two submissions per folder per day.

- Submit to the appropriate folder. If you're not sure of where to submit a particular piece or feel there should be another category, don't hesitate to let me know.

- Rotoscoping is just a fancy way of saying that you used a base to create your animation. So if your gif used a base and isn't an avatar or stamp, make sure it goes into the "Rotoscoped Gifs" folder.

- The only place you're allowed to submit gifs that contain footage from random tv shows, movies, animes, etc that you didn't actually make is in the Stamp or the Avatars and Icons folder. (If it's an actual stamp or avatar, of course.) This is to ensure that the group doesn't become full of the screenshot equivalent of gifs. I want user-made content, not a bunch of copy-pasted material.

Other than that, have fun and enjoy the galleries!

Hello, fellow animators!
I’m Moony-moo from “Lazorewka” studio. My team is looking for a 2D animator who will create two scenes for a music video. The task is to make an animation template that is ready for inking.
That’s what we want you to create:…

There are following scenes to be done:
“Fat lady runs after a character”
“Three young ladies dance flamenco”
“Three young ladies play guitars”

We prefer to pay via bank transfer with an official invoice. Paypal is not welcomed but still acceptable.
Feel free to contact us:
Skype: Scorpy__
Please pay attention: the offer expires on may 21st.

is there a FAQ on deviantart, to know how to submit an animated gif, concerning maximum size, format etc... ?
alexapdos Featured By Owner May 19, 2015  Professional Filmographer
I don't think there's a maximum size for the gif itself, but you will need to make a separate preview image.  It's been a while since I uploaded any gifs, but I think the maximum preview dimensions are 150x150p and up to 1MB?  It can still be animated, but you'll just have to shrink it/reduce its quality to meet those standards.

Would something like this fit here? :)
alexapdos Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2015  Professional Filmographer
If you turned it into an avatar or stamp, then sure.  Otherwise no, just because you didn't create the original source material.

As I though. Spending quite a lot of time on getting perfect loop that's manageble size and smooth is nothing, but resize an existing animation and add picture frames on it is somehow original...
alexapdos Featured By Owner Edited Apr 13, 2015  Professional Filmographer
It's more original than using other people's content without changing a thing, broseph.

a little question...

HOW CAN I MAKE ANIMATIONS?????????????????Neko (Lennon)  Little Busters [V9] 
alexapdos Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2015  Professional Filmographer
Oh gosh, this is a very open ended question.  I 100% recommend watching some youtube tutorials for whatever type of animation you want to get into.

If you wanna do hand drawn stuff, Oney has put out some pretty good videos to get you started:…
