This goes out to the off-key cardinal singing outside my window.
Last year I used this little guy in a 12-page wordless comic about cardinals finding love despite their imperfections. This time, I wanted to do a slightly more complicated animation using a character I could draw quickly and accurately.
These gifs are being made in Photoshop, which isn't the perfect choice for animating, but suits me for what I want to do. I've got zero animation training, so the choppiness of these gifs can be forgiven. Its not perfect, and that lends it a little charm, I think.
