Yo everyone. This is my First Animation Ever! I was thinking of making a video clip of "Fire coming out of the monkey head" from gorillaz. But I ran out of time... -_-
I made something quicker and cheaper then my original Idea. But I think I did good for my first flash.

Anyway I hope you guys like it!

...but the music choice is not great, sorry :/

Also the animations need to be at consistent speeds.

I was in a hurry!!! :( It had 2 hours left before handing it to my teacher at school.
I could of use sound effect instead, but that would take more time!

This is one of the better first animations I've seen.

You've got good perspective (sorta, lol), i liked the zooming and angle views.

Someday you'll have to ween off the line drawing though, and get a cheaply pen tablet off ebay (size doesn't really matter much starting out, so don't get discouraged about a small one - it just puts a pencil on the computer). If it turns out you really enjoy animating, sooner is better, and why not give it a shot?

All else i can recommend is to get yourself a .PDF of "Richard Williams The Animator's Survival Kit" off of the googles, or buy the book if you're richer. I can't really tell you how amazingly informative that thing is, but i can tell you everyone who really animates probably has a copy.

Hope that helps!

Above all else, Keep it up, dude!

ZaDoo responds:

Sure, I'll take a look at the animator's survival kit. I'm not a pro at drawing, but I guess drawing on a pen tablet could be interesting.

Not bad.

The overall quality of the animation could be better though and the movement is a little off like in the rope climbing scene.Good work anyway.
