Saw this and felt like animating. Except this is a little bit more than just practice. I might actually go somewhere with this.

The long panning part is for dialogue. Hence the missing mouths.


I think I would enjoy eating fruit more if it screamed when I bit into it.

I still can't keep proportions right and my drawings keep woobling.

My first flash animation (ever)

Bouncing ball

Walking cycle

Link animation

Comments and suggestions are very welcome.

That walk cycle needs to be worked on alot i recommend looking at videos of people just walking... or look up walk cycles and just try doing exact same thing or just get animators survival kit book,

Also that ball bounce needs to be worked on the arc is way to weird on first bounce it slows down a little to early and then it impacts a little crazy i think all you need is to bring the first arc on first bounce higher up and it should feel a bit more right but i would also recommend doing it FBF not with just one circle off circle tool.

I do love link thing though you should practice that other stuff first

What about the woobling effect?

When I do my first sketches with the pencil tool (wich are very rough btw) the movement often feels waaay more fluid and natural then they do in the second sketch.

Also, I'm using a wacom bamboo tablet and I tried a lot of different combinations between the sensitivity of the pen tip, the smoothness of the brush tool and the brush pressure feature. But the only situation that makes me feel comfortable for drawing is with 100 smoothness and no brush pressure, even though in this case it's hard to maintain control over the lines.

my toonboom animate pro license is not valid anymore for some reason so I wanted to see if adobe fixed the brush tool in flash after all this years....the answer is no. Do you know if there is any plug-in for the brush tool to make it more like the brush tool in illustrator or TB animate pro?

also a quickie I made for a friend: LINK

What you do is use a fatter brush and then get rid of as many points as possible. By first using the smooth feature in your toolbar and then just zooming in and fucking around with your lines. Johnny Utah made a nice tutorial on it.

Or you can just use the line/pen tool for accurate lines. Theres really nothing to fix with the brush tool in flash though. You just gotta know how to work with it I guess :c

yeah I saw that tutorial (good job Jeff). But I just can't get on with the brush tool. It feels too awkward to work with it. Well, I guess I should stop whining and start trying to accept reality and work with what I have lol

This was going to be for the movie I'm making, but since I'm scrapping it (since my skills have improved) I now consider it a learning experience. Check check it out!

Great job on the anticipation there at the beginning and the looking away at the end.

Just a quick and crude double take practice here, didn't bother key-framing:

Hi, newgrounds animators.
In the morning I have been animating but I confront a big problem.
I made my sketch( for the proportions ) and later to make a cleaner animation some things have change .
I like more my sketch than the clean animation, I think is more fluent and smooth and the other is like a robot.
I don't know what to do.

The problem with your cleaner version is that the head and body are not moving. I also suggest adding some up and down movement to the head and body.
