Anthony the Ant

This is my final piece for my Graphic Design project I made at college, I spent a few weeks prepping and then 5 hours in a controlled test designing and animating this from scratch, I thought it'd be nice to put it up here and you can give me some constructive feedback.

It's an interactive character, my brief was very vuage but basically I had to investigate animals especially those which were caricaturised with human characteristics. This guy was founded on alot of the disney animals and the way he works is similar to the animated character of oska.com

READ!! This character responds when you click his

A mixed bag of inventive animations.

Really impressive for 5hrs work.

I think it might have been better with buttons - it's tricky to click the mouth (I had to zoom in to do so) and buttons would ensure we could see all the animations.

My favourites were definitely the falling (though that could have been a tad faster) and the shoes (really nice and smooth 'smoke').

When he bounces the head, the arm goes over it when replacing it. I think you should have taken the effort of making a 2nd arm on a layer underneath the head, to use for those few frames.

Amusing. Really impressive for 5hrs and I look forward to seeing the stuff you spent longer on.


It was good,i liked it.Mostly because it was something original,but i can't give it a 10 because of the sound.

Simple, Unique and Inventive

It's rare that I find an interactive flash similar to yours on this website. The animations of each click event are really nice and I also like it how Anthony isn't a stationary graphic when I haven't pressed him. I dunno, I guess it just gives the character a more life like approach?

A little bit more effort with sound would make this experience a whole lot funner. Just get a couple of vomiting sounds or spinning sounds of the internet.

Yeah that's really all I can say.

It was made for college so I only got 5 hours to work on it, and they dont have speakers on the college pcs so I didnt put any sound in ;) thanks for the feedback though, always appreciated.
