Whipped this out in 2 weeks in my artistic military school.
I didn't think I could really finish this. It's rough.
If I find the time I will refine this piece....

Though my prof is nice, his harsh grading system has me on my toes.

First animation with Hali: [link] and Ren the Monkey [link] involved. They are characters I made for a children story I have plans for but never got to. lol~~

I need to update my site with a theatre icon when I get more and more animation made of my original work. ^^

Is that... Vivaldi's Autumn from 4 Seasons, the Allegro? XD I've been listening to that recently. I'm enjoying this animation. I would really like to take animation at the school I attend, however, they do not offer 2D animation : ( But your work inspires me to go about trying it on my own ^^

cool. 2D animation is really about finding the time to nail down the basics and learn to use the software.
If you haven't yet heard of it, Animator's Survival Kit by Richard Williams is the holy text book for us. :P
It's good to start out with flash animation, it's a bit funky when you first start learning, but it's a powerful tool when you get used to it.

ooo i like it! how do you did it?? i wanna do it!! with adobe flash?

Yeah, it's Flash and Corel painter combined. Backgrounds are imported, the animation is done in flash directly.

Wow, this is amazing! :frail: For a beginner, you do animation very well. Hard marking prof's can be tricky to please. Especially if it's artistic military school--sounds rough! Well, I think you did a terrific job. :clap:

I especially like it when Hali kisses the leaf and it changes colour, and Ren the Monkey's tail is so lively!

You like making children's stories? I do! :bounce:
If you like, you could check out a l'il one I put up. For lack of a scanner, I drew it on Microsoft Paint, but it's not bad. The Troll's Minion Title Page>
