O.o Okay, guess how long this took me.

A week? Not even close?

Half a week? Nearly.

2 Days?! ... spot on. I've worked my little tail off to get this done in time. But I'm quite pleased with the result. ^_^

As I only had two days when I wasn't diying of flu to animate the dang thing, I thought that I'd better do it in flash. Only reason being that I know my way around tablet drawing at this stage, and I needed to finish off the animation fast.

The assignment was to do a person attempting to move a heavy object, then finally giving it some momentum, followed by chasing it down a hill and smashing into the back of it when it hits a wall ... and I decided to be a bit more creative then that. :XD:

So here's a couple new mini-characters I've made especailly for the animation. Mustaffa, a blacksmith in the town of Elbonia, and his trusty camel Ramadan.

Enjoy! ^_^

Nicely done for two days of work! Those characters look class.

It'd be great if I were to get some tips from you about Flash. I'm not doing too well with it at the moment...

No worries vixxy. And sure thing! I'd be more than happy to. :3

What part of animation are ye having trouble with? I'm planning on doing a tutorial for Flash and general animation for a few friends sometime soon. Perhaps that may help? It will follow the same basic principals as hand-drawn stuff. :)

It's almost impossible to trace with a tablet in flash. If I wanted to go for proper Disney solidity I would have done it in pencil ... and been there until 2008. x_X

Thanks dood! xD

Flash Pro 8 has a utility to turn off the brush squiggles, but you need to use a mouse, not a tablet.

Draw it with a mouse?! Again, I'd be there until 2008. xD
