**** UPDATE: I have put a help portal on my website! You can visit it and post animations that you need help with... I will do my best to leave feedback for everyone. *****

I made my first tutorial because someone else made one that really was awful... This is a tutorial that I WISH I HAD. it will show you alot of different things about building and animating a character. ENJOY!


Great Tutorial!

Hyperblast, I assume you mean putting a body part on top of another, do you see the layer bars next to your timeline? Click and drag them to change positions of your layers/objects in the layers. Top bar= uppermost layer bottom bar= bottom layer. Anyways, great tutorial JackSmack! This answer a lot of my questions about animating body parts.


Can you tell me how to put body parts on different levels? I dont get that.

keep em coming

This series of tutorial rocks, most probally the best on newgrounds to date.
I love your style of art and cant wait to see short bus.
This stuff will definatly help.

Another great tutorial

Still not learning too much. Although a nice reminder of the rotation points. That does cause problems at times.

You can buy flash at macromedia.

Go to the flash portal and find the link called learn flash, for info. You can get a 30-day free trail. You can buy itfor about 500$ If you in middle school or hi school the price is reduced to about 100$ Try the free-trail, savior_of_flash.

The movie: Its great, its good so I understand it. Yet tweening alot isnt my style, i use frame-by-frame, but i may use a little bit of tween in my frame by frame, they work well together.
