The Bus

Share Collapse

Should of arrived a bit later rather than arriving early. Bob (I couldn't think of another name) waits for the bus for a large amount of time but sadly misses anyway. This is my first animation!

There are reasons why this animation is poorly drawn and animated. I have been using Paint.NET to draw every single frame as I do not have Adobe Flash Professional and I have been drawing with a mouse. After drawing approximately 150 frames with a mouse, I used Camtasia as a video editor. I put every frame together to create this animation, then I added a little sound to it. I hope it is worth the trouble to create this, other than all that, I had fun.

I'd like some constructive criticism on what I should improve on, it'll help me greatly. I will appreciate all ratings, good or bad. Thanks. :)

Okay for a first movie. Hopefully the guy learned a lesson: check the time and schedule before killing time

Your current method is crippling to learning animation. The limits of not having proper software/hardware makes it less efficient and effective (obviously). So why not try different animation mediums, like pencil drawn or stop-motion? Just saying.

Any constructive criticism at this point is useless in my opinion. The way you learn principles of animation and motion is through experience, so keep at it :)


Good job on the funny animation. I enjoyed this piece for a a few reasons. One is that I can relate (if not all users) to this type of situation, which is waiting for something for awhile then missing it. Two, your artwork and animation reminded me of Cyanide & Happiness.

Above all good short, and keep the good work coming!



Seeing as you used Paint to animate this, I can understand why it's so bad.
My advice is to add more Mario music to your videos, then they'll be frontpaged!
Seriously, that's all it takes.

I like it! It's short, but it gets to the point. I'll hope to see more from you! :)

You say it's poorly animated. The animation was actually pretty good for a 1st video. Hell you even do better than some Flash animators I've seen. But yeah, color and backgrounds would be nice. Still, keep it up! :)
