Well, here it is, my inevitable first foray into animation. It's something I was planning to do since I decided to move my tumblr work to Flash instead of Photoshop.
Not a bad first attempt, if I do say so myself. It's a bit lacking, but ambition is success's mortal enemy, so it's best if I just start small, complete a few animations like that before moving on to more complex things (instead of just starting at the stuff I really
want to do, and getting frustrated and giving up). I pretty much dreamed this up last night, spent about half an hour on the rough, then spent about 4 hours collectively on a three second animation. It makes me respect the fan/real animators out there so
I want to thank the Double Rainboom Crew
, and namely *Flamingo1986
for all their hard work, and their release of these really useful Pony Puppets (I could have used my own, but theirs are much more feature rich, and compatible, whereas I still have a little bit to go before reaching that level. Without the hard work of all these guys, I probably wouldn't have been interested at looking into Flash in the first place.
Tell me what you think!
Also, I am aware of the randomly appearing White Dots, they're artifacts of the puppet which I can't get to not-render.
