My first animation didn't take a lot of work, but it was a start. I actually drew more than one image for animating a candle. For my first animated drawing.
After that I did a lot of animation for websites.
I think any start is a good one. I hope you keep going and do a lot more. The only thing I can think of is this looks wider than it needs to be unless you want to animate the stars, and make a few sparkle.
Thanks for the advice, and nice work on the frozen chains piece. I didn't realize how wide it was and did a quick crop of an image. The one thing I find perplexing is the conversion of AVI in Photoshop CS5. For some reason the shape objects I used in combination with motion Tweens done by Photoshop looked like crap. However, the rasterized images I used with the tweens done by photoshop worked out pretty well, but it was a B&W image so I really can't say anything tbh.
Hoping to work with Photoshop and convert the images into an AVI format to make a movie with Sony Vegas. Hardest thing I had to learn/relearn was 1 second can = 30frames at 29fps with few things going beyond that except Stop Motion Animation which can be up to 60 frames within 1 second.
I paid $20 for Quicktime. So I can save files as an mp4 movie.
There definitely are a lot of frames to make a video last a while I think I watched a video someone did that lasted 30 minutes, and at 30 frames per second that was 54,000 images. They made it look like a character moving around in a game for the whole movie.
