Notes and Credits

A short animation created in 3-4 hours. This loops!
Press space to see global loops. (Like Vine)

Drawn in Piskel.
AMV stands for Animated Music Video.
Song - Weak by AJR
I listened to Weak and couldn't get it out of my head.
Not one of my larger works, but I hope you all enjoy it (:

[ Improvement and Experimentation Log ]
I recently found out about Piskel's onion layer feature which is awesome for animating! I've been working on making complex smooth transitions (for example, a raindrop turning into a person compared to a sprite simply horizontally sliding off the screen), which are much easier in bitmap formats (compared to vector).
I prioritized smoothness and dynamic movement over art quality. (In addition to efficiency in terms of seconds animated over production time.)
In future animations, I hope to improve the art quality and perhaps create an easy-to-draw but iconic OC. Also, I have to find a way to draw 100 frames without Piskel crashing. (It nearly did for this one.)

Wondering how this is timed? Part guess-work and part coding.
Learn how to program the coding part in "Sync Audio and Animations", an episode in the Learning with Stang and Theo series.

@Ceebee and @TurboKitten have been huge inspirations to me. I love their short music-synced animations!
Edit: I didn't realize that they both made Weak AMVs too LOL

Also, thank you for 5000 followers! I will make an ask project, first where you can ask me anything, and another with my responses!

Thanks for What the Community is Loving and Remixing!
