Hi everyone! ^_^

I am Sarah, a 22 years old girl animating LoL stuff. I started my first animations in May this year for school and decided that it would be pretty cool to make my own League videos.
At my youtube channel I will upload approximately every 3 to 4 weeks a new video. Yes atm there are not that many videos but there will be more in time ;)

You can check out my creations here. I will show you my progress every few days so you can follow my creations and how they become. Maybe you have some ideas to improve my drawings and animations? I would be very happy to get some critics or improvement ideas!

I hope you'll like the view :)

I suggest really taking a closer look at references when you animate. Definitely should look into some of the fundamentals presented by Disney inside of "The Illusion of Life" book. It's a staple for making more believable and convincing animations. And like I said before, reference reference reference! The timing is off on the animations. Like with drawing from the mind, what we currently have stored in our minds can be misleading and often lead to rather incorrect looking representations. Here's a few links to texts that you should look into.

Definitely good reads. As for art style, that's just something you develop overtime, but studying anatomy would be key to learn before really progressing further imho. Learning how the joints and muscles of the body work is half the battle when it comes to animating.







Best of luck with animation!

Hi Toshabi!

Thanks a lot for your feedback and thanks for watching my video. I really apreciate it :)

I do my animations just for fun for myself and with no other aim than entertaining. Of course - better animations are even funnier than worse animations. I do totally agree with you. The last book seems to be a good one for me because my mothertongue is not english and it is avaiable at my amazon aswell (in english) :3


My first videos were/are made a little bit in chibi style. This might be a reason why the anatomy is not correct. Just a thought that this might be.

Thanks :) Do you mean making videos in this style (with a storyteller and a moral) or more animated videos? ^^
