Hand Drawn Animation Practice

There is a song that I have been drawing animations for, in my head, for months!  I want to tackle animating it soon, but I need more practice first. Above is my second attempt at hand drawn animation using a stop motion animation app on my phone. I only had time to complete the first verse of the song so far, but I like how it turned out, considering I’m just learning – and there is a lot to learn! I think I’ll keep working on it.

The song is The Kite Song, by Rosie Thomas. It’s really lovely! I highly recommend purchasing it! 🙂

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go on, I can go on with my life
And every marigold I pass below will be my guiding light
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me to the end of a kite
So I can go and I can go on with my life
And every time the wind blows stronger I will feel my spirit rise
I just want to go away from here

Oh, tie me ever tightly by your side
So I may go with you wherever you reside
And anytime the road looks dimmer I will be your guiding light
I just want to go away with you

I just want to go away with you
