I cut out a series of limbs for the 1st character based on how characters from Animal Crossing usually move. Then, I found some tiny metal rivets to attach the joints as organically as possible. I made some extra cut outs for the bug net to really sell that it has a different weight compared to everything else on screen, and moved each object frame-by-frame. It took me about 8-12 hours in total, from drawing out the design, to animating it using Dragonframe.
