Ever seen that famous Eztoon where the guy starts attacking? Save the Gif and study it in Flash.
After that my very first Eztoon which happened to be and explosion, turned out great.

hm the shape of the cloud at the beginning is a little strange and unrealistic. try adding shrapnel and mini clouds that arent part of the initial boom.

Pretty cool. You should try more explosions.

Better, but not anything special.

In order to give you a basic concept on explosions you need two things.


FORCE
Basicly self-explanitory, some ways to show force include
-Flashes: One frame of black before the explosion
-Easing: The explosion will start out large right away, but dissapate slowly.
-Ground shaking: Just move around the ground, usualy added to one of the above.

PARTICLES
Very important, you can have very nice particles by,
-Making larger parts of the explosion dissapate or brake apart into may pieces.
-Particles move, they do not stay in one spot and dissapear. Have them move outwards.
-Practice

Hope it helps.
