Worker Walk Cycle cleaned up and done! I was done since Thursday but I didn’t wan’t to upload a one second video then I remembered I actually own iMovie haha uvu
There is a small mistake here but it's way too late to change but if I DO end up inking and coloring it I WILL change it so if you one spots it don't worry I'll fix it if I decide to continue to work on this<3
I might try to ink and color this in flash but I’m not quite sure how to do that? Even if I were to scan all the drawings I’m not sure how to do that;;;; Can you use textures in flash?
aaaa I have so much to learn about flash uvu I feel much more comfortable using it after fixing the pen tool to my liking! It's much more comfortable and I'm actually planning on working on "What's For Dinner?" again! But this time I'm working from the ground up.
Script, concept art, storyboard, animatic, THEN the animation.
To do this in flash, you would first scan in all of your drawings. Then, once you've opened up Flash, open a new document, and add frames by pressing F7. Make sure you have one frame for every drawing. Finally, on each frame, click file>import>import to stage, and select the JPEG of your drawing. Always make sure you are on the next frame before importing the next drawing. (The images might be the wrong size once you've imported them. To fix that, select the image, press Q, and scale them down.) From there, I would add a new layer, and create frames on that layer as well. Then, trace over your drawings in the new layer. Just make sure the layer with your original drawings is locked so you can't damage it.
The only advice I can give you for flash is, stick with it. Flash can be a major pain. Also, try to use the brush tool, not the pencil tool, for fluid lines. Make sure you have smoothing on, and try not to be too sketchy with your line work unless it's a rough draft. Messy line art takes forever to clean up. The brush and eraser tools have some different modes like paint behind or paint selected that are very useful once you get the hang of them. I don't mean to talk forever, but I have one last tip. Try to learn the keyboard shortcuts. They will severely cut down the amount of time you spend on a project. (Some useful ones are Brush (B), Eraser (E), Paint Bucket (K), Selection tool (V), Scale Tool (Q), Add Key Frame (F7), Make a Key Frame Longer (F5), and there are a bunch more, but those are the ones I find that I use the most.
I hope this helped. Good luck!
