The name's Mike, or Sk8rguy.

I apologize beforehand if this is the wrong place to post non-flash, non-easytoon, and non-pivot animations.

I work with stickmen with triangle heads.

Since I'm terrible at intro's, I'll keep it simple. This is one of my recent works, I've been in animation with stick figures for about a year now, and am slowly moving into flash from pen and paper.

I'd love to know any opinions you guys have.

Thanks, I really appreciate it.

animating with pencil and paper is actually much harder than flash. first you need to be able to draw (i can do that), and you need to keep a stable image, since there's no onion skin, and putting two papers on top of each other is not so clear.

Actually animators flip or roll through the pages as they're drawing them.
By taking pictures he could draw several on one page and center them in a program like paint.

What impressed me was the going through pages like a wall. Really neat.

Thanks for the comments eh :) and yeah I use each page for 10 or so cells, and the page breaking was difficult at first :P
