It's Alive! Alive!
One of Santa's generous helpers gave me Flash. My mission:
1.Learn how to use it.
2.Learn how to make animated cartoons with it.
I'm still getting the hang of it, but here's my initial attempt, loosly based on a tutorial from The Art of Cartooning with Flash. I was supposed to use a robot head (provided) but I wanted something of my own.
Not the most exciting thing on the internet but I'm just getting started!
I tried to save it as a quicktime element but my machine claimed it didn't have a needed quicktime component, so this and future 'toons will be embedded flash movies until I figure things out.
It's a pretty cool program. I'm spending half of my 'Vegas vacation holed up in my room playing with it. Way more fun than a slot machine!
p.s. Thanks, Santa's Generous Helper!
