Lion Walking by BenHeine Lion Walking by BenHeine | Facebook | Twitter | Ben Heine

An excerpt of an animation I'm working on... I'll be posting the
full work in HD with original music on my FB page page: [link]

The lion may look a bit "tired", because he never stops walking.

PS: I didn't use any specific software like Flash to make this,
I made each frame one by one... Very, very time consuming.

Add a Comment:
A very nicely constructed short. The animation itself is very smooth, the pacing is the same throughout and nothing jumps from frame to frame. The main subject is very well structured and appealing.

I really like the build up from the line art phase, basic shading and full colour as this works very well as a transition.

What you could do to improve upon this is perhaps play around with the timing. What if it was a slower walk (as though the lion were about to take down their prey)? What about if the pacing were faster (as if the lion were jogging or working up to a run)?

Overall really well done. I look forward to seeing more!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
8 out of 8 deviants thought this was fair.

I love how the lion moves with its seemingly non existent background making it seem like its moving along the page. I also love how the detail steadily gets better as the lion progresses to move. Adding color shading and detail even going from black to white. The visuals are wonderful. I can really tell you spent a lot of time and effort into this one piece and the whole thing really comes together. The animation is smooth and fluid, no matter which way you drew the lion it still seemed to being at its same steady pace This is a very creative work, one of your best in my opinion. I love it!
