I not only used the bone tool for the worm in my Goin' Mental game, I even controlled the bones with code!

Thanks to our fabulous contestants for their efforts:

rambojoe

I think rambojoe wins this one, but since there were only three participants... and because I appreciate that you guys tried, you'll each get $25 store credit! It should show up in your account (when you visit the store) in the next few days!

Atzu, I didn't include yours 'cuz you didn't make an actual dancing animation, but thank you for sharing that with us! :)

Thanks to everyone that tried or said they would but didn't. I still think you're p. cool ;P

ReNaeNae, I agree with your decision; I should have given myself the time to make the cheeta dance.

By the way I'm curious about the bone tool aviable in the toonboom studio that it looks that Rambojoe used. I've seen both the AE and Toonboom Harmony "puppet tool" and I've also seen some Glue Module in TB Animate Pro that allows you to move 2 connected layers and let the software recreate the intersection in someway that it looks a lot like the robot Rambojoe animated. Usually I create characters with all limbs separated, that's why I'm so curious about that bone method.

Anyway, congrats to the winners!

I drew the robot in 6 layers and then collapsed them all into the body layer. Then added the bones over the body layer and it connected to all the drawing parts that were layered in the body.
My First run I just drew a single layer character and it had some odd problems with its influence affecting other body parts stretching them all over the place.

Hmm, I was going to post a screen cap for you, but I don't see it anymore either. Maybe it only shows up once you actually have it. Used to be on the top left in the shopping card area.
