@02:30Ah, that makes more sense! I knew some anteaters could climb trees, but she didn't look like any of the species I knew of. :XD: You're quite welcome!

@01:09All animation is done 'in frames', I'm not sure what your question is. I did draw each drawing by hand, if that's what you mean?
And yes I am a professional animator, though I was still in school when I made this (my final year project). Haven't animated anything for myself in a while but I have been trying to change that and hopefully will have some new stuff to put up in time! I've definitely grown since I made this. :) Thanks for your kind words!

@02:41the job and apartment stuff is fantastic! I'm sorry about family dramas but I'm glad you're not letting it get you down.

yeah, I had been behind too but I'm trying to get back in the game! life after school has been constantly stressful for me, but things are looking up. if you watch the Venture Bros (and if you don't, I recommend it), I've been interning at the company that makes it so I've actually been working on it. it's unpaid, but been a great experience and I've been doing commissions too. I've been offered a paid job starting next year at somewhere else, which is great. so all in all, kind of stressful, but I've found ways to cope. spending some time with my family right now which I really needed, they've come into NYC for Thanskgiving. :)

@02:30ANTEATER! :la:

I really enjoyed the animation in this. It was very smooth and the animals were a lot of fun to watch, though I was constantly worried for the anteater's safety, flinging himself around the trees like that. :o

Wonderful job!

You should use google when you want to learn stuff next time, it's very useful. ;) -> [link] Pangolins are not related to anteaters but they look similar and have similar characteristics because they share the same diet - ants. They are sometimes called 'scaly anteaters' even though they aren't true anteaters. Pangolin species exist in Africa and Asia and the particular species I used for my film is a Sunda Pangolin and native to Southeast Asia (as I am too). Their claws are used to tear open ant nests, not for clinging to branches as sloths do (though some species can climb trees, others are ground-dwellers.

They're also an endangered species, so if you want to learn more about them it might also behoove you to see what you can do to help conserve them. They're one of my favourite animals and I'm happy to share info about them since they're not all that well known!

yer. well you did a great job at the animtion and the Pangolin is verry well done =). and yes i figured they were endangered as every forest animal is coz of their loss of habitat, its really sad =( u kno like humans taking over the world. imagine wat its gonna be like in the future
