My entry for [link]

This is the first and most important principle of the classic animation. All 12 principles were invented by the leading Disney animators from the 1930s in their efforts to produce more realistic movements.

The purpose of "squash and stretch" is to convey a sense of weight and flexibility. It can be applied to simple objects, like a bouncing ball, or more complex constructions, like the musculature of a human face. In realistic animation, however, the most important aspect of this principle is the fact that an object's volume does not change when squashed or stretched.

This has to be one of the most finished and well done emotes I've seen.

You have very nice shading, great pixeling, style, and fantastic animation. I like the fact that you even added shading to the eyes, and the hat makes it even more relate-able for what this emote stands for.

The only thing that I suggest is that you add a smile. He looks very glum :noes:

Accept it as an opinion, because I hate Disney. The shows, the cartoons, everything related to Disney hog all the fame. It's a dishonor, and that's why I think Disney is not inspiring at all. I'm sick of Disney winning, and you should too. It's a crying shame.:(

When you dont like something, sometimes its hard to say things without a misunderstanding.

Yes. Yes it is. The thing with the roses, it means I'm happy for you, because of what you said about Disney made me happy. Hating Disney is the real happiness.:iconimhappyplz:

Yep; squash and stretch was the first thing I learned in my animation class. Well, first we learned how to open Flash. Then we learned squash and stretch.
