New animator. Any advice ? Jun. 8th, 2013 @ 05:12 AM Reply

Sup NG peeps !
I'm new in animations, (about 3-4 days) **(.-.wtf?)** also i'm a begginer using graphic tablets, (about 2 months).
So, I'd like to hear any advice ! Criticism to !
I use Adobe Flash cs6. (flash, jerk flash)...
So, yeah, i made only shorts, i don't think i'm made for stickman animations n' things like that, so i try'd something new.
I learn'd most of the things fromDrawWithJazza.

So, yeah, here's 1 link : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0cfWP8DdvQs&feature=youtu.be

I'll upload more ! So, give me any advice/criticism !!

it the little thing in the properties when you have a tween selected, you can ease things in and out.. and if you dont know what easing is learn animation.

So far, what you made seems really good. The only thing I'd recommend changing is (as mentioned before) adding an ease to your tween.

http://animation.about.com/od/flashanimationtutorials/qt/fla sheasetween.htm

There is a good tutorial on how to do it. Basically it makes your tweens smoother and seem less harsh then they stop and start.

Keep up the good work! Jazza's tutorials are great to follow if you are looking to become more skilled. I'd also recommend HappyHarry's tutorials:
