My First flash
For my first flash I wanted to create a simple animation of a young boys family scaring him in monster costumes. Unfortunately the final product was unable to portray this. Since I was completely new to the adobe flash program I ran into many issues. I first started with a six panel storyboard.
The next step was to transfer my drawings into digital files to begin the flash. I spent a lot of time tracing each character as well as giving them color. Next, I had to start working on the background. However since I didn’t know how to properly animate it I had to completely get ride of the background. The next part I had to do was too broke apart the legs, hands, arms, and heads of my characters. Since I only had a few days to the deadline my only option was to motion tween. That was my only option because I didn’t know how to effectively use the bones tool and the motion tween distorted my symbols. Even though I had a lot of trouble using flash, it will not discourage me to keep using flash in the future. I’ve enjoyed the experience of using flash and I will enjoy using it for future projects
Here is a rough version of my first flash.
Here are a couple of 3D animations which I really like!
The lighting and the grass texture are a little off though.
