Here are some of Anthony's other articles (These deal more with tabletop RPGs, but character building and storytelling fundamentals apply to different media):

http://www.realityrefracted.com/2010/01/bringing-your-charac ter-to-life.html

http://www.realityrefracted.com/2010/02/fleshing-out-your-ch aracters.html

http://www.realityrefracted.com/2010/12/what-hot-fuzz-taught -me-about-running.html

This is awesome, thanks for the articles! Now, I don't want to take too much of your time, but I do have a request:
Would you be able to write or find anything about concept and delivery? Just how to set up a story and tell it in an interesting manner...

Anyways, this will be useful for future reference, not just for NATA :)

Wow, you're art style is very interesting to the eyes. I liked the detail you put into it, and your colors were really nice too. Very smooth animation.

Lots of great entries so far!

I used to have a lot of issues with Flash crashing, especially since my laptop's memory has been running low and my computer runs slow in general. My solution to that was to break my animation into chunks, and combine them all into one Flash file once everything is complete. I also constantly save - after almost every frame. I really hate having to redo stuff.

..and thanks! Sadly, my probably won't be completed again, but I'm still going to submit it. I always seem to get way too ambitious, but at least I can finish it when I have time.

Thanks! There's lots of old lady ass. I hope I didn't disturb anyone.

In fact, there is no ass in the next entry I'm making, but there is still an old person and a cat. I have no idea why.

It's possible! If it is, I am not aware of it half the time. Old people and cats can be cool though, right?

Hey, ya'll! Nice entries so far!
I just wanted to pop by the forum and say I'm not so sure I'll get mine done on time, but I'll post what I got on Thursday evening. I suppose I'll lose points for this but what the heck, I've just got a new job and probably won't have time to finish.
Here's a sneak peak for those who are interested:
