I was fiddling around with my gimp program trying to figure out how to animate something and did a rough animation of eyes opening/closing and changing colors.
The idea was of my character Hestia, the possession of the Greek Gods in her body are represented through her eyes. In this case, Nyx is taking over.
I’m pretty happy with how this turned out overall. Esp. since it’s my first gif ever and I’ve been wanting to animate eyes opening/closing for a year+ now. A lot more simplistic than I expected!
Erin! This is so good! Ahhhh, her eyeshape is so lovely and you did a good job overall on the blink. :D
I know you’re probably not looking for critique BUT YOU’RE GETTING IT ANYWAY (because I love you <3) Honestly the only thing I’d say at this point is you could probably afford to make the frames a little quicker on the eyes reopening? (not even by adding another frame, just speeding up the frame rate would probably do it) Adding more frames obvs. would smooth the animation out more, but it’s pretty clean as is tbh. The overall motion is good and it loops really really well!
These are the only movies that just keep getting better
FUCKING BEN KINGSLEY
I AM SO EXCITED
SO EFFING EXCITED FOR THIS MOVIE AHHHHHH
MOTHER F*CKING LANCELOT.
((#Honesty Hour: As a Brit, I usually hate American films that do the whole Let’s Go To London! trope (ok maybe not HATE, but at least, have to put up with the same dumb jokes and kind of just ignore the cringe-y stereotypical parts of the film in order to get on with my life) but the FIRST clip they show of them in London is a lady throwing American stereotypes at HIM. /And then/ he’s all “that’s not even remotely right” I’m dying because it’s perfect. These films are freaking legendary.))
Please let yourself be proud of small things. Please do that. Please allow yourself to get really excited about playing a video game well or sending an ask you were nervous about or letting a bug outside or peeling the whole orange in one try. Please get so excited about that. Please. That’s so cool I’m so glad you did it.
"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

SOMEONE GET THE “I NEED THIS BECAUSE OF REASONS” .JPG
LITERALLY interpreted this as Hes and Lu co-parenting, Erin. xD (though you probably meant Cy would be that first parent, oh gosh, kill me now.)
…… :I ……Lu apologising to all the other soccer moms & dads that Hes couldn’t make it this week on account of the restraining order c: <3
Hahaha yes, hestia gets mad cuz she never gets to make the snacks for games because everyone else distrusts her and she’s just like “Just because I hate the moms doesn’t mean I’m going to murder their kids. Gdi. Stupid Suburbians. <aside:if anything I’d just stick a pinecone in their tail pipe >3> >”
RACHAEL. YES. AU WHERE HESTIA AND LU ARE ACTUALLY MARRIED. THIS NEEDS TO EXIST. XD
Awwhaww, Lu just brings whatever Hes bakes anyway and tells the moms she made them so they’re not fearing for their children xDD Kids think they’re rad. Lu whispers that they’re made by Hes who has no restraint on sugar shh don’ttellyourmums.
…ten bucks says Hes sneaks out and shoves a pinecone in the ref’s tailpipe during the game anyway. (“Your car was MORE THAN 25 FEET AWAY. Bitchplease, I am ENTIRELY within my jurisdiction here.”)
SO LET IT BE WRITTEN SO LET IT BE DONE *most epic high five ever* omg they need a ship name. Heslu Luhes Lutia …LUCIA? Or one of those more vague ones like Spitfire. Hmmm. Just call ‘em freaking Sunshine because Hes has all that Apollo in her and Lu is literally a light fairy. ALTHOUGH Lucia means light so that works just as well anyway. PFFFFT omg help. xD
