GEEZ, RORSCHACH. Just rub it in my face that I can't animate backgrounds yet. >:C

I AM FINALLY DONE WITH AP TESTING. And to celebrate, I actually did a Flash animation. WOOT, WOOT.

It's nothing much, but HEY, I'M CELEBRATING, SO IT'S SPECIAL.

If I wanted to do an animation, it had to be something worth animating. So, I chose Watchmen as a central theme. BECAUSE THIS OBSESSION WILL NOT GO AWAY. And I really wanted to animate a character with an easy design, so...who other than Walter Kovacs--I mean Rorschach? 8DDD;;;

Man, although the animation looks simple, DON'T LET IT FOOL YOU. It was really hard. xD Took me hours to do. But it was fun. Each one of Rorschach's movements was drawn frame by frame. No tweening whatsoever. The only tweening that was done was the background and his face does not change because I suck that much at animating. OH, WELL. I'm still pleased with the overall result.

OW, MY HANDS AND ARMS. The things I do out of love for you, Rorschach. >8C <33

It's supposed to loop, so if it doesn't, then please blame my n00b Flash skills. xDD

I like how he's sort of trudging -- like hiking on pavement. :XD: Is it odd that I can identify with Wall-E and Walter Kovacs? :crazy:

Blargh! The animation runs so nicely! (watching the sidewalk move from under him, it's like he's walking so fast! Darn him and his speedy movements!)
He'd totally win at speedwalking, BK.
The animation looks good, but his movements seem quite fast which makes him look a bit jerky in the movements, but watching it I can see it flow. I dunno, I think it's the age of my computer that makes things seem funny - it happens with youtube videos and stuff too.

Anyways... A-Purasuu!

That's awesome, Bechster! I'm sure Rorshy is happy to know that you made him into a flash 'toon.

Oh, you old fuddy-duddy. D<

How do you flash animate stuff? Like, what program(s) are needed?

Your animation is a great setup for future ones, keep it up =)

Oh, I use a program called Adobe Flash to animate, but I heard that Photoshop is good for animating, too, though I don't know how to do so. xDD

For a first animation this is VERY VERY good and a well done walk cycle! The movement gets a very jolty once it loops but other then that it's very smooth and wonderful to watch~ You did a stellar job! YOU DON'T KNOW HOW EXCITED I WAS TO SEE THAT YOU ANIMATED SOMETHING ;; YAYYYdfksdjkg <3

How a man with a mask on has the ability to look thoughtful I don't know...BUT YOU PULLED IT OFF.

This is quite a lovely piece considering you don't usually do flash stuff :3 Sad it was so difficult o.o but I do hope you'll do more in the future! (if it doesn't kill you doing so >.> )

You know that it's any character's job to rub something the person drawing them's face. :3
This is neat. I'm jelly--er, jealous of your animation skills. DX

Rorschach is the only character who never ever gets on my nerves<3

I'm reading Watchmen. Well, trying to. Turns out I'm not so good at reading comics. I'm GOING to finish it, I swear!

Nifty animation though. Not that I've ever tried to animate anything, but I'm pretty sure I'm not very good at it. With my track record of not finishing the smallest, lamest of drawings, that is. So, I commend thee on this.

I WAS JUST THINKING ABOUT IF YOU WERE EVER GOING TO DO AN ANIMATION SOMETIME. Clearly, I'm a psychic.

DON'T LET THIS OBSESSION DIE because this is amazing and frame by frame oh gosh. I love you so much for doing frame by frame <33333333 You make me want to animate too.

Well, he does have a tendancy to jump out of windows, falling a couple stories every once in a while. ;p Who's to say that never happened before the timeframe of the moviefilm?
