IMPORTANT: Please do not use this animation.


Yes I don't know why Kunz is in a box, but she looks like she's having fun anyway - literally bouncing off the walls!


This is my first full-body animation that is not just a walk! I wanted to try animating some fast action. Also it's the first time Kunzai has been animated!

I completed it as an assignment, and my tutors thought it'd be funny if I added some sound, so I err hurriedly recorded me tapping next to the mic hole on the imac and used that, hence it is really not good and hardly syncs up at all. Lol.

14 drawings - hand drawn, hand inked and coloured on Photoshop, then imported into Flash.

Enjoy :D

I have several questions.
First, why is there a fox in a box?
Second, how did get there?
And third, why do I find it so freaking ridiculous?!

I'm not sure what you're asking, but I'd rather you didn't copy my character. If you want a kit fox or a fennec fox character that's fine but you can't have a Kunzai, she's one of a kind :)

Welcome. I might have asked this before, but can you make your very own Kunzai as long as I don't steal this, because I wouldn't do that. I was just wondering if you can make your very own Kunzai.

Plus, are you a Graphic Designer? I've always wanted to be one!

Heya, you are welcome to make a character similar to Kunzai (with a different name). I'd recommend changing the colours and markings and going from there. She is based on a kit fox so if you need inspiration have a look at photos of those. :) Thanks, and I work as a freelance Character Artist/Animator. That's cool, wish you luck making it happen ^^

So I'm allowed to make a Kunzai like yours bout with a different name?

Example:

Kunzai-MythFox             ( Sorry, It's bad. /:( )

or do you mean Taylor the Kunzai?

I'm sorry you don't understand

Confused

I'm still not sure what you're asking, so I'll try to explain as thoroughly as I can.

The character in this animation and throughout my gallery is my original character that I've worked on for about 12, maybe 13 years now. She's very personal to me.

She is based on a real world species called a "kit fox" but I styled her like a cartoon character, and changed the grey markings to purple and things like that. Her exact design is unique, but I don't mind if other people make characters that have a similar look, like another big-eared fox or a purple and yellow character. But it is a little strange to copy another artist's character. It's not like she's a big movie star (yet ;))

Her name is also unique, at least for a cartoon animal character. Kunzai is her personal given name, not a species like a Pokémon, by the way. She is not "a kunzai", she -is- Kunzai. It's my username here. To people who know me through my art, my name is also Kunzai. Like your name on your profile is Vicky. So it's like asking if you can make a "Taylor the Vicky" or something, haha.

It's really nice of you to ask permission, and I appreciate that. But this has gotten weirdly confusing so I'm going to say no. Please don't copy my character or use my name. But I'm flattered that you like Kunzai so much.
