Art Trade / Gift : Midas and Lyn by AbsoluteDream Art Trade / Gift : Midas and Lyn by AbsoluteDream
Watch with better quality here:  www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ptAZT…

So I started early this past summer, worked on it here and there, and I've finally finished it. :D

This is my part of an art trade with FayeleneFyre.  I put extra effort into this one, because I was excited to animate Deku characters, but also I'm very thankful for her being so patient with me, and also it's been a rough year.  I hope this puts a smile on your face!

I'm real happy with how it turned out!  It was fun trying something different.  Also I wanted to see how I could use gradients on the characters.  Though it doesn't look so good in a gif, I like how it came out. :D  I should have used a radial gradient for Lyn's face... oh well, lesson learned. ^^;

Uh, I'm pretty sure I messed up on some of the character designs though.  I didn't even realize until well into colouring that I completely forgot the leaves on Midas's elbows. ^^;  I'm sorry about that.  


I really hope you like it, though!

Programs used:  Toon Boom for the animation, photoshop for the background

Oh boy, this looks really fluid and at the same time with soft, quiet pauses 
I like how you work with those slow movements. :love:

This is so cute! It's very smoothly done, and the characters are pretty interesting. I see that this is part of an art trade, do you know if the characters are from and original story or not? They look like original species characters.

Oh.... Oh my lands!! QAQ Dream, this is absolutely beautiful!! I have been watching this seriously for hours! I am so in awe of this, I've been spending so long trying to think of how to express my thanks for this! I am not worthy of your beautiful animations Lovely Shoujo Emoji (Huggy Hug) [V2] I see absolutely nothing wrong with this! (and I always forget Midas' elbow leaves :XD: they're pretty out of the way for me, haha)

I don't know if you know just how much I cherish this animation- especially since I've always been so inspired by you /);w;(\ seeing this, it took me a while to realize it was real. And the more I watch it, the more I am inspired to continue on. I know lately, I've considered giving up on my journey into animation. I'm so far from having the proper equipment, but seeing just how much life you put into Midas and Lyn, I realize I'd be dropping the chances for all my characters to live if I gave up on animating them.

There are so many details in this animation that just blow me away! Lyn liking purple rupees, Midas' sensitive leaves, and how you portrayed even the tiniest details- such as Lyn's slit pupils in contrast to Midas' rounder pupils. And even the eye shapes! The character interaction is so perfect, too! And though Midas gets so irritated by Lyn, he just can't help but let her get away with things :giggle: I am busy appreciating all the little details that make them so different and alive. You are great at depicting the differences of characters and how they are wrote!


You have done a splendid job on them and I simply cannot thank you enough <3 I can't stop smiling, this made me so happy! Thank you so much for going out of your way to do this, it was so generous of you! :hug: I will love this forever!


Also, seeing how you rounded the highlights on Lyn's three fore leaves instead of making the highlights jagged has given me an idea. It is so hard animating Iris with the jagged highlights in every frame, so I think I'm going to give your method a try and see how it works for me : D
And I hope you don't mind if I use this as my DeviantID? :heart:

Your comment has totally lifted my spirits!  Thank you so much for all of your kind words!  I'm so relieved and ecstatic that you like it so much! :'D

I hoped I did their personalities and character justice.  They're such awesome and dynamic characters.  I love how they compliment each other.  They were both an absolute blast to animate!  I love them to bits. XD

I do hope to see more of your animations as well!  You don't need fancy programs to make great animations.  (haha, yeah, I hoped you wouldn't mind me smoothing out the marking on Lyn's petals.  But I'm happy you're willing to try it out!  It does make things a little bit easier.)

You're so very welcome!  I'm just so happy this put a smile on your face! :D  And of course you can use it as you're ID!  I would be honoured!

It's still on youtube if you could say. Type either episode 53 or episode 78 but i warn you. What behind the final episode there will be drama and heartbreaking
