Long Way Home

Okay... now here's a simplified version of the mothroom from Oddments in action. Still not too crazy about the quality!

Okay folks, here we go! Click for the animated GIF. It runs super-slowly for some reason. Ah well, I have a lot to learn! For one thing, this is the only file small enough for Blogger, but the quality is awful.

Flash News Flash!

Yesterday I finally had my first Flash class! It was an all-day class & my head is still spinning a little.

It's like falling down a rabbit hole-- passing shelves & shelves filled with shape tweens, motion paths, movie clips, armatures-- but falling so fast I can only pick up little scraps of understanding here & there-- just enough to get myself in trouble!

We'll see how it goes once I've firmly landed in Flashland.

So far my animations have not been at all artistic-- just messing with basic shapes-- but it shouldn't be hard to begin incorporating a few curiosities once I get the techniques down. I think I may try a fluttery little animation with this character first. Wish me luck!

Moving Pictures

I've received a grant to learn how to create simple animations! This is where I will be posting my attempts to make images move.
