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.

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>

Many blessings on your work. :rose:

very good, tho the characters and their movements withheld that flash style it was the backgrounds that truly amazed me. The backgrounds don't even look like they were done in flash, they almost look painted! Very very good, definitely one of the best flash pieces I saw from Eiser's class.

I tried to do the background of similar style with illustrator and put it in flash, flash crashes, so I did resort to Painter. Flash can import jpg, png, combining it with another program is only advantages to us.

good effort... its a little jerky and influence by japanese anime animation( u know the kind where the body remains still and the only the mouth moves). i know animation is tough work and 2d animation is worst of the lot. (tats y i prefer 3d) but listen to ur prof get ur foundations rite and u will realise its really worth every second of time spent on the final product. (the feeling u get when ppl sees it an u r like WOOT! :headbang:)

Nice character designs, Ren's a cute kid, and Hali is a great way to personify autumn. Plus, he/she/it really has a Sonic influence (and I haven't seen anything Sonic like from you in a long time)
If I could make any change... it's that it would be longer so I could enjoy it for longer ;)

haha... how about, I wish it were longer so the song could play out all the way?
I know it was rushed, but pretty fantastic work anyway! Take it easy in your art boot camp =P

It's all classical, artistic and perfectly well animated. If this was to be judged in a film festival in fall, I would nominate this for the obvious win.
