Nott (Critical Role)
I just started watching the Dnd adventures of Vox Machina in their show "Critical Role". I'm going to start making some fanart of it because its so great. This character is Nott the Brave, a goblin rogue child who wears a porcelain mask to hide the fact that she is a goblin.

I'm working on my first extended animation (of Game Grumps Doki Doki Literature Club), I'm starting to come into some trouble, and I'm looking for advice. I'm pretty confident in my lip syncing, but during long talking scenes (and there's quite a few) I'm struggling to make my animations look less robotic and more engaging/exciting. I'm struggling to make them seem more alive. (For example blinking and minor head turns). Doe anyone have advice or resources I could go to for this? 
Exasperated Dan
Ahh! I'm ready to start out the new year with my very first Game Grumps Animated, based on their playthrough so far of Doki Doki Literature Club. This is the largest animation I've ever done, (it should end up as almost 5 minutes, and I usually make 2 second gifs).
Though I'm excited to try, its going to take a REALLY long time, so I'll probably be posting a lot of short little pieces of it.

A year in review
Ha ha haaaaa... 
It's been a huge year in my non-art-related-life: I graduated college and have to start acting like an adult now. Artistically, I have made a lot more progress then this joke implies, considering I've only been animating for about 5 months now. (I've learned a ton about what not to do!) I just get a teeny bit overwhelmed when I see how much farther I have to become the artist I want to be. 

Nevertheless, I will continue working towards my goals.

I love playing video games, board games, and RPGs (mostly dungeons and dragons). I have videos of my Dnd sessions on youtube as well as short animations. I have been animating for less than a month, so I would appreciate all help and/or recommendations.

Interesting, I've never watched this channel. Do you have a specific portion of the video that you like?
Also it might be a while before I get into doing requests again because of the Game Grumps animated I'm working on right now

I play dungeons and dragons quite a bit (it's my favorite game), but I don't do much online roleplay. Why do you ask? :)
