Well i tried flash and i suck hard... lol the stick continuously changes size in the ani :S and its drawn bad, but hey its my first so what do ya expect.


added this for my 2nd try (i need a mentor lol)

Hey, don't worry about it - you've definately got the important physics down it seems (anticipation, force, easing, and so on). You may find that the grid in Flash helps in keeping sticks the same size just as a by the way fact, and of course the wobbliness will decrease with experience. You should also practice reactions by inserting another stick in there, it would be both good practice, and entertaining for us critiquing.

xD thnx, very helpfull, also do tablets make it that much easier to use flash, if so i might get one.

Yarr yarr physics were a bit off.
and it resizes bits.
still if this is your first EVOR.
Then its good :P

thnx:DD practise practise practise.... lol

Did you animate in easytoon or something before?
It's quite good.
It's a bit wobbly, and maybe ease a bit more, but physics and such are good.

it's quite good, but it's quite bad. physics, and resizing mostly. some of the movements were good tho. practice

Lol waaay better than my first anim. Then again I was 11.

You got some resizing there, but you may be the next Hyun.

lol Nice, For a first. I think it's pretty acceptable for a combo too.

To help with resising, try hitting "ctrl + #" for the grid
Or View > Grid > Show Grid

To draw teh stick I reccomend you Zoom In to around 400% & use line, or brush smoothing of 35-45 to draw it.

I also reccoment making your canvas a little smaller & for you to research the Vcam aswell.

Just informing you of the most popular things used in flash.
Oh yeah also. A Tablet can help withe animation if you're able to draw with one. They take getting used to, but they're much faster in the end. I only use a mouse, I'll invest in one some time. But yeah, get one if you have the money man. :)

Thnx for the suggestions. And yeah i was looking at Vcam its good for zooming and stuff since flash is vector based aye.

that was very very good for the first anim.

heres my 2nd fail... its still wobbly and the uppercut is ****** but im getting there.
