Have you guys heard of TVPaint though? My teacher tells me that that's what they use in much of the 2d animation industry. I just got the student version about a month ago, and I'm really having fun with the many possibilities. It is recommendable... Though, just like with toon boom, it takes some time getting used to.
I ran into it when first researching software that lets you scan in drawings, although I haven't tried it or anything. Is it set up similarly to Toon Boom and Flash? Also, out of curiosity, is it vector like Flash, or raster? I've always wondered what id would be like to make each frame more painterly than simply cell shading, but I've never gotten around to it.
Also, as a side note, if anyone did decide to do an entry in programs other than Flash - i.e. TVPaint, Toon Boom, After Effects, etc, would we be able to upload movies using the new Newgrounds video player?
Also, if anyone here is interested in further character animation, I can also recommend the 11seconds club. It's quite a fun challenge :)
I'm going to second this recommendation. It's a fun way to practice :)
