The first animation I did trying out the feature in Clip Studio Paint. It had been a long time since the last time I had animated anything, but people had asked me about what Talita looked like speaking with her trunk. I was too intimidated to try including her glasses.
The way she grips her neck is an anxious tic, not anything related to speech. All of her vocal equipment is in her trunk, skull, and on the back of her neck.
Cheevwut the avian alien gets a text. Avian aliens have sphincter eyelids. I made this try out colored animation with layers.
A try at colored animation with colored lines. Very pretty, probably too much work.
