More Wadjets

If I were good at coding, I’d write something that would help me generate these snake movements. As it is, I do a lot of tedious moving-around-of-frames by hand. It took several hours of manual shifting to make this vertical Wadjet. I also made a more squiggly one, below; I like the shape but I think she might be a little too active.

  1. I like the less-wiggly one best, the body seems to have more weight to it. It all depends on context, though. 🙂

  2. Really pretty.
    And you’re right, this is the sort of thing that ActionScript is really good at.

  3. Just for ordinary looking, I like the Wadjet with more motion. Of course, which one you eventually use would have to depend on the context of the scene.

  4. This causes me the same cognitive dissonance as all of the “reptile-alien women with breasts” in Star Trek and Doctor Who. ‘See, the thing about reptiles is that they are not mammals, and only mammals have breasts.’ Still less likely in aliens, too, of course!

    But, hey, mythical chimeras will be mythical chimeras. 🙂

    Nice animation, of course. I like the 2nd “more squiggly” version better myself. Emphasizes the snake motion better.
