I'm reall getting tired of stick fights. So I thought up a simple but fun to animate character. I might add colors and eyes and shit to make it look better.

Walking B(l)oxey (The name is Bloc now, thanks scorpio)

Call it Bloc and make it a guy. I might steal this but make them round people/things. The one step looks not bad, needs more actually animation though.

Bloxey or something like [bloxaya] It looks like a simple excuse to animate O.o but we'll see when you get more into it.

go with bloc
i know it wasn't intended, but this looks like a pivot animation. can i also assume that it was animated like so too? with the dragging, dropping, next frame, etc? don't drop it though, it's a good concept to move away from sticks

i saw that message in the corner too

Yeah, it was animated like that. And also, I've tried fullbody and I was horrible, and so then I thought of this idea while I was doodling in flash.

if you can keep this thing up and also proceed to get better at drawing in flash, you can probably make some sweet stuff

maybe along the lines of madness, but you probably want to make something more "complicated"

Haha. Yeah a lot of people on other forums are saying it looks like madness. But I wasn't really going for that, but whatever. Also, I drew all of that with a laptop pad mouse thing.
:D

"Drew", lol. The torso might be too big for any real action scenes, but it could be good for comedy fights. I like how the hands are layered.

You should make it "Boxy" so people have to pronounce it like "Bohksy".

boxy's too much of a *chan reference. it's going to be pretty annoying hearing, "omg you meant boxxy lololol"

Yeah it looks fun to animate, I always get sick of simple sticks jumping around and fighting, I usually make particles and explosions and stuff when I'm sick of stick men. Looks cool you should call it Boxey, because Bloxey kind of sounds like Bloxs, you know the tetris blocks? So yeah, cool though~

If you wanted it to look more animated and cartoon-like, maybe you could redraw the parts of his body every frame, instead of moving movie clips/graphics, though then it would be way more time consuming.
