Pencilmation #5: To Beard or Not to Beard.

Hooray for being on the front page! Personally, this isn't my favorite Pencilmation, but that's just me. I've been trying to do a new one every two weeks, and I do feel like my style is improving. Well, at least I hope my style is improving...

A few things I am considering for the future:
-Background music that is not techno
-Including images the hand along with the pencil and having more interaction at that level
-Creating a more realistic pencil line (may involve using a program other than Flash)

Anyway, just a couple of ideas I'm kicking around....

Yet another Pencilmation from the strange mind of Ross Bollinger.... find the rest of his cartoons along with his blog at

Great as always...

I like the idea: the beard vs. mustache/goatee combo.
Plus, I like the exaggerated expressions of your characters.

silly as usual

It's your usual silly animation. One problem though. In the preloader it said Pencilmation 3. This is Pencilmation 5, Haha. A good ending, fairly original and well drawn and animated. I love frame by frame work like this.
Keep it up!
