This is the first of the series to educate n00bs on how to animate stuff. I shall be covering more topics on animation soon. I have done a bunch of them over at tutorials.devilsgarage.co m, but I really need to translate them to this style in the coming months.

A BIG Thanks to Tilman for the fantastic kitsch music! Check out more of his music at http://tilman.newgrounds.

Simple and Effective!

Great intro to animation for newbies but equally refreshing for a veteran. Perfect music selection to match.

Well done!

You sir, are a gentleman and a learned scholar. 100,000 caps to you and a free ride to Point Lookout.


I have never considered such important elements when animating. Thanks for popping them out, Ajay. Hey maybe you'd like to make a tutorial about pixel art since currently I am addicted at it =)

Dude, thanks for the feedback. and I have been planning on make one tutorial on pixel art. I shall definitely cover that topic earlier than planned.
