YAY I got this done!! I started this animation about 3 weeks ago in a Flash tutorial in our university, then put it aside because I was overloaded with new projects and now finally finished it!
The sketching of this animation took surprisingly few time. I got almost all the movements right what surprised me a lot. But inking the frames was really hard, especially the flowy mane and tail x.x
But I am super proud of the result!
Here are the steps of how I did it:
1) Sketching in Adobe Flash
2) Inking the frames
3) Fill-in colours
4) Paint background in Photoshop
5) Add the lantern
6) Paint the glow effects in Photoshop
7) Overlay the glow layers in Flash
I even tried to work with After Effects a bit but I gave up. I just love Flash too much and the combination of Flash and PS kicks ass.
