struggle town, population: me

I just don't know much about animation yet ; - ; especially frame rates, I've always done things all at the same frame speed and I want to achieve something more subtle, but I don't really know which to make faster and which to make slower, or if it's better to have many more frames for a smoother transition overall, or less

edit:
progress... but now I'm thinking it's really not going to work out at all, maybe it's not worth wasting the time on XD

> > > > > > >

I just feel like it's not very readable, mostly because all of the top elements are yellow and you can't really see them at this size... but adding an outline makes him twice the size and appear to be half cut around the edges... then there's the obvious issues of movement in the wings particularly to deal with... it's probably something a bit too tricky for me at this stage of my learning XD

Wanted to check opinions on if this is readable or not before I spend any time on animation.

Thoughts?

It looks like a cartoony cutesy flying purple dragon with pegasus like wings. If that's what it's meant to be then it's pretty readable. Hope that helps. I like the flying. Particularly how it sort of flutters near the end

I get error 500 for hours at a time every day, both on the forum and the main site, not specifically from trying to submit, I sent a report about it via the "contact us" button but never heard back, so I'm wondering if it's my end or the site server's struggling? I tried on multiples browsers, multiple locations and multiple internet networks and it still happens soo XD
