This time I tried to challenge myself with an animation of a character. It was quite difficult, but as you can see I managed to make the little creature - which is called "Groml". The character was made out of 12 different images (arms, mouth, legs, etc.) and then animated. This was my first animated character so I had to learn a few things first - e.g. the movement of the arms and the mouth... but spending all the time for these things was worth it!

So seriously what is a Groml?! I imagined them - yes, there is definitely more than one...maybe hundreds or even thousands - as little creatures living inside canalization of big cities. The picture above pictures one of them in front of a wall.

Creepy! The animation is great though! It's nice to see a peg-motion character where the movements aren't stiff or rubbery. :)

This is really cool! His jaw opens a bit strangely - as if there's no chin bone - but I feel like I am looking at something straight out of Monsters Inc otherwise!
