Hey Guys! I Created a Guide to how I make my Stickman animations. I'm trying to make it as easy as possible to learn so bare with me. My goal is to when i done, Re-make it, so that each video is 5 minutes :D. Thus making it the easiest guide EVERRRRR :P.

Now I show how i tween my animations through FBF, If you really are a tween hater and hate me as well then, i guess don't look at them :D. Enjoy, Also like I said, I'll be uploading a video per day, until the guide is complete. Enjoy.

Thanks alot bro for your support :). don't put your self down tho, You did a great job on your tuts :D, and they'll keep getting better as well :D. I use loops on cinematics. is very simple to go from a loop to a non loop. Specially, u'll see that with my style, i animate EVERYTHING inside Graphic clips lol, u'll see when i do the combo animation :D. I think i'll make it a 5 - 10 combo, don't want to take 20 minutes again, maybe I'll speed animate the parts that don't need explanation lol.

thx man and what a conwinsedence, my next tut is a combo tut (punch combo) but that would be later in the future when i get a new mic (my sister broke my horrible mic D: ) so no tutorials for me for a while. Tomorrow i'll get to see your tutorial at least :). After i get my mic and get mentored im going make a BG tut and a Cinematics tutorial... GL on your tutorial for tomorrow and i really like BasketBall Fail (or what ever is was called) ^u^ good day

You know how you made the layers separately and such? You could actually draw he stick in one layer, separate the head, then select the limbs, separate them then select everything except for the head and right-click>distribute to layers. That way is much simpler, but the tut helped a lot! =)
I was just watching it.
PS.
My account pic was animated frame by frame, and actually, when you compare it, your style you can animate at 24 fps. I usually used like 19.97 fps. With your style I tested at 120 fps and it rocks! =)

Le-Update! I forgot to post the link to the new effects playlist I'm working on... or was. Click here for the effects tutorials (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLBZwoav5XwLNDMF3GJIJvfje0wrPxKIkV&feature=plcp).

BTW I have stopped making new tutorials because Im going to make a whole new Packet. Each lesson will be between 2 and three minutes. And here are the categories included--(Stickman character animation tutorials/ Watch and do tutorials with downloadable fla./ Special effects tutorials / 3D Illusion stickman faces/ and probably much more. Currently I am super busy working on a few new projects, and WHOA have i improved! There is a new project coming out next week inspired by my favorite game "Assassins Creed" so be on the look out.

Tl'dr - FUCK YOU THEN

<3 all byeeeeeeee ---- POPO STATUS XD

These are great! Thanks a lot! I'm a noob and these tutorials were perfect to get me starte with line tool! I tried brush-tooling, but it took me two hours to make a two-second clip! You're awesome! thanks!

Hey No sweat, Glad it helps. Although these techniques are outdated, I have came up with easier methods. When I get a chance I'll make a better tutorial tree.
