Hi Brandi!

I was just watching your little chicks taking turns chirping.  This is rocket science to me, so please forgive my ignorance in advance.  Is it possible to make the robin in the birdhouse chirp, too, or is that adding too many layers (is that what you even call it, layers?  I am not trying to mess with your signature line, I am just wondering as I am enjoying the little chicks.  Like I said, all the movement stuff is over my head, it was just a wandering thought as I sit here watching your chicks as I can finally relax, home from the prom.

 

Thanks, Brandi, I enjoy your work and see that it must take a great deal of time.  (As I am typing this, a robin started chirping out of nowhere (it is 12:38 am here).  How cool is that?

 

Glad you got some time to relax!

I think the robin chirping was an Omen.

I have found that just about everything is possible with graphics, if one has the skills, software and time to devote to it.

In order to do what you asked, this is what I had to do.

I had to take the bird out of the birdhouse background, redraw the birdhouse (so when the bird jumps, the birdhouse is still in the background), then place the bird back in position(s) to chirp. Then incorporate it into the original image, after removing the original bird and birdhouse in the all the frames of the original. Then animate it. I made some graphics to illustrate:





I am hoping that is what you meant. Sometimes I have a teeny problem understanding what people want. Wink

~Brandi

That's amazing, Brandi and I am so impressed that you did it to show me.  Thank you.  I just wasn't sure how many things could go on at the same time.  Once again, I am amazed.

 



I am happy to share my graphic knowledge. (I am self-taught.) Anytime you have a question, I will be pleased to answer and illustrate Wink

One avatar I made for Northern Rose for Halloween, I believe had 13 or 14 different animations in it! So, there really is no limit.

It was one of these:



Maybe you want to see if you can spot them?

Or maybe not. Wink

Anyway, always feel free to ask me anything about animation/graphics.

I'll post some Easter designs for you on Monday.

In the meantime, I cropped your original and resized it for an avatar. You might want to use this one for now. You can see Baxter so much better Wink

Hi BaxtersMama:

Some days I have a lot of trouble getting my design mojo.

Last night and today were two of those days.

Baxter is adorable, but the picture was a little difficult for me to work with, as he only had one leg and he's a delightful ball of fur. LOL

Hard to see where he begins and he ends. Wink

These are the designs I came up with. I hope one appeals to you:

I love the butterfly and its shadow in this one:

These all have different butterflies in the eggs:

You are very welcome!

You can switch from day to day if you want to use any others Wink

No rush on finding another picture, but if you have some handy you would like me to try to use, send 'em my way!

If not, I can use this one. I drew him a new foot. LOL So he has two front feet Wink

Depends on how you count them. Wink

The monkey's cap has 4, the scientist's hat has 5 lights. Each requires its own frame.

Amazing.  What about the eyes, do you have to make them blink separately?  That must be a pain.

I thought I found them all, that is why I was asking if you counted the hat as 1 or 5.

What about the windows, do you light them up, too?

Yes, each blinking eye must be made to blink separately. They are relatively easy to do. Getting the blinking timing can be tricky though.

The windows in these do not light up, but if one wanted them to, yes, it would be another animation. In the third avatar, there are some green eyes outside the window blinking. That needed quite a few frames to accomplish.

There's actually a lot of Math needed to make good animation. Go figure! LOL
