Annora the undefeated

I started practising lightsaber lessons when my partner found out there was a lightsaber school located close to us. Of course, I am nowhere near good enough for the movement I wanted the character to portray, so I turned to professional badass Michell C. Smith her youtube channel and decided to use her choreography as reference for the keyframes.
Based on design by yuming li
When digital artist Yuming Li reached 30k followers on Instagram Yuming celebrated by hosting a popular art challenge on social media “Draw this in your style” DTYIS in short. I was mesmerized by the character’s design and decided to join in by using the challenge to practise my animation skills. I wanted to focus on flow, dynamics, and to incorporate an impact frame. The animation process got me back into loving animating again.
