@02:09I know! It's so rewarding, though. But it's always been much harder than drawing--generally, I don't even feel like drawing is work, but animation sure feels like work! :XD:

I'm learning animation in one of the biggest animation studios in my country, and my teacher shows us your cartoon as an example of great animation. You really should be proud! It's the only part of the class that isn't boring!

Ha, ha--gotcha. I live in the US, so we're not exposed to a lot of animation from other countries, except for Japan. It's too bad--Adult Swim shows a lot of stuff from Britain and Japan, but not much from anywhere else. I guess the internet's probably the best bet for finding animation from around the world. :D

@02:09Wow, thanks! Glad you enjoyed it. It was a lot of fun to make! I drew the frames by hand and adjusted them in Photoshop, then compiled them in Macromedia Director and Premiere. It's an out-dated way of animating, but it works! ^_^

but i love all your work!! it really makes me laugh!

@02:09Thanks! I really appreciate that. ^_^ That's cool! I didn't realize they still taught animation with Director nowadays! It's not that hard to learn--it's a lot like Flash. Basically you're placing images or "sprites" on the screen into a timeline, then you play it back and they all play in order. It's pretty cool!

Anyway, good luck with it! I'm sure you'll enjoy it. :la: If you ever want any advice, feel free to ask!

@02:09Your animations are AMAZING! I'm attempting to do hand drawn animations myself for an independent study, I was wondering how many frames all together you drew for this animation and the tools you use to draw/put the final animation together :)

@02:09Wow, thank you!!! I really appreciate that! Glad you enjoyed the cartoon!

Cool! That's great you're studying animation! It's very rewarding. I don't remember how many frames exactly--not that many, really, since I loop them a lot for this one. Probably around 700 or so? I drew them all on tracing paper with pencil, then scanned them in and adjusted the brightness/contrast in Photoshop, then sequenced them in Director and added sound in Premiere. It's the old-fashioned way of doing it! :D Have you done animation before? I like your gallery! A great variety of styles! :)

@02:09I haven't done much with animations because I haven't had a lot of time but I am going to be doing it for a class next semester. I only have photoshop and flash so it looks like that's what I will be using (pooor college student!) Thanks for checking out my gallery I haven't added anything in at least a year but I plan on adding a lot over the next month or 2!

I doubt I'll be able to do anything as smooth as your animations for awhile but that's my goal by summer! :)

@02:09Cool! Animation is a lot of work, but it's so gratifying! You'll enjoy it! :D If you want a tip, I found it was easier to start with stick figures (or very simple figures), getting down the basics of movement (weight, timing, mass, gravity, etc.) before worrying about how the characters look. Same for fluidity--better to map out your key frames for convincing movement before worrying about how smooth it looks. Anyway, that's my two cents! :) Good luck!
