Christmas animated gif - the dog is now in colour

The dog is now in colour and ready to animate.
I changed my mind about the ear position for the first frame and added some colour.

Here is the dog in Photoshop, ready to be made into a series of frames for the animation.

I feel I should give the dog a name... hmmm... Patch? Spot? Or something christmassy like Pudding or Holly?

Christmas animated gif - linework for the first frame

Linework for the first frame
I've been working on the actions for my christmas animation using rough drawings and I think I've got it working well. The movements were a challenge this year and it is very important that I am accurate, you'll see why when it's finished.

So now I am working on the character and creating the linework for the frames. I think I like this little dog, the next stage is to see how he looks in colour.

The animation should be finished by the end of the week.
