conan by thedoberman conan by thedoberman
Allright; coming back to drawing... And animation! It s been ages, here I ve been looking for very simple shapes to animate with Flash...
Talking about it, if anyone around knows a great tutorial or could give me some tips, it would be very appreciated, I never used flash before, and for know, I ve only been banging my head on walls...
Thanks a lot...

He look so cool.

One time in college we had a guest lecture from some animators from an irish studio called Boulder media (they animated foster home and el tigra ) and they where saying that if you spend the time keying the animation out like what is done in hand drawn animation the hard work is done. They where also saying that flash animation tends to look better when its snappy. so if you go from pose to pose quickly and use the over lap and secondary action to sell the movement.this is done so much in those two t.v shows

Also i find the shape hints are god's gift. there pretty easy to work out.You can find it in modify and then scroll down to shape. but i think there only in flash cs3 and up. The only problem with this tool is it doesn't like lines to be on the shapes of the object. so after you animate you have to go over each area that you want a line on.

hope that make some sense. have fun with it.

Nice to see your beautiful drawings again!

I've worked with Flash before. It's not really that hard. There are some great tutorials around.

Cheers! Yeah, it doesn t seem SO hard, but I found it tough to find good tutorials, lots of them are made by kids or aren t precise enough... I ll keep trying anyway, I m quite motivated to go back to anim..!!

I have been trying to teach myself flash a little and it is hard as hell! My cousin has been learning it at work and tells me you have to know a lot of coding. I am really glad to see you back to drawing, though. [link] has some stuff up about how he built his models. It looks painstaking.
