pinwheel by nawafiai pinwheel by nawafiai
wanted to see if I could do it... and I did!
might try more complex ones later?

--
This is also one of the main characters from my webcomic: [link]

Edit>>
Oh wow, thank you for the DD!
(Thank you `Mollinda!!)

And yes, I agree. The two strands of hair should have been animated too...
But they were already glued down when I realized this D:

Thank you for all the favourites and the comments!!

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-15
When I think of stop-motion animation, I think of clay models, not anything as subtle and delicate as pinwheel by *nawafiai. Simply done using her signature papercraft style. ( Featured by Mollinda )

This is amazingly beautiful. And, for some reason, I'm strangely enamored of the little bit of blush on the shoulders.

The traditional art gives it a unique composition in contrast of the simple and smooth flash and pure digital .gifs.
