Ookay. First of all - thank you all guys for replies.
@ LAL Thanks, I guess that dragon and girl will be my real masterpiece ) @ kingkostas Btw sometimes even if I'm not actually drawing, I'm doing that in the head, so hey - I'm double not lazy ) @ marcotronic Thank you - I'm enjoying that tablet alot! @ sutapa You will, just visit me daily or so ) @ BluezAce I'll post animation next time, ok? Maybe we'll jam something together one day?
So for today we've got:
* PoP: Sands of Time the game bigheaded prince (because I'm playing it again, and brw movie ROCKS!)
* more heads
* and some sudden alchemy based bastard.

@ Donna Thanks and I will soon finish it, probably tomorrow. @ BluezAce Too bad you won't see it on a big screen, but I hope you'll see it anyway - it worth it.
So, animation in PS (since cs3, how it was before I really don't remember, though I've been using PS since 7th or 8th version) pretty much simple. Call window-animation. Set it from Timeline to Frames if it's not. Now create new layer and make first keyframe. All you need to do now is just draw every next frame on the new lawyer. To make it easy I'm duplicating current frame, setting original layer to low opacity, and just drawing in the duplicate. That way it's easy to maintain proportions in movements and stuff (hope you understand me).
So, now you have all key frame, what to do next?
Disable all layers except first one and go to animation window. Press this one:
when new frame created, select it, then disable first layer in it, and enable second one. And so do with every next frame\layer. In the end you supposed to have 1 unique layer per 1 frame.
You can set how long does frame stays on (default 0 seconds), and can tween frame. This way, by tweening (is it a word?) 2 frames, you'll have some additional frames, in which first layer disappears and second one starts to appear.
Anyway, when you'll be done, select file-save for web&devices. Save as gif and it's done. BUT, if you planning to make a real video, select file-export-render video.
So, here's a little animation I've done, doing that lil' tut, and a face practice (btw, all faces I've recently done - refless, and I think I'm doing not bad ))
Well, that'it for now - I'm not at my workplace, so not really in mood to do serious stuff.
Omg - killabear! Cute prince, and sweet frog\fish. I think it really shows your progress. Rendered heads are nice, but man, push youself - do eyebrows, eyes and hair. Anyway you're doing better and better!
