I've been working this one off for hoooo... a long time. ^^

This proves what I'm capable of in Flash.
This is my dancing Bellossom, also my longest animation so far.
Anyways, I cannot work with lineart! Darn.
I still hate it, from the time I even wrote the journal saying that I hate lineart drawing.

I think I'd be better off coloring and sketching animations.
And sooner or later, music and sounds. Can anybody give me a suggestion for free sound effects?

Ah, so this is the animation you were speaking of for a good tie eh? I say it's very nice, elaborate too. I think this animation is one of your better works throughout your gallery here, yet there is still points where it can indeed be more powerful that are, fortunately speaking, now within your reach.

Now that you got the sketches there, and the main frames got all done and running, I would like to suggest as a matter of practice, draw in-between those frames in an attempt to smoothen out the animations. Or you can try to shade now on every frame. Remember to keep the Onion Skin feature on to help you determine where it's appropriate to shade, and it doesn't hurt to check ahead what's to come to make an appropriate decision on shading and animations.

I believe you have what it takes to make a small cartoon. When you feel ready for the project, let me know. :P

I unfinished it on purpose, I took a tutorial for shading but I did not apply it here because this was just a persistance practice, which did not work well because this took about a month due to procrastination. ^^;

I also took a tutorial for smoothening the animation and did not apply it for the same reason.

Now, I feel discouraged because I don't have sound effects for animations.

Animation is mostly about the timing. What you might is a bit of quick practices now and then in small, quick successions, nothing elaborate if not even stick people to keep up with the demanding difficulty of the job, and as you keep getting better you start doing the quick successions with more complicated matters. I know procrastination is an artist's true enemy [look at me] but sometimes those breaks can give you a good time to develop ideas more carefully [as long as you get the down later on].

Points in short: Simple and effective, short animations, done weekly at the very least. A key element to beating procrastination is to

No sound effects eh? ... hmmm ... what do you need? I can either find some or create them.

Fine please. :meow: (Sound Effects)

But I've had some aid from a friend now and she gave me free sound effects! :la:
But I could still get a little boost and I'll promise I'll make better animations gradually.

Alright, tell me what you need at any time and I'll try to catch up alright?

I'll be preparing a little tutorial regarding beginner tips for animations and some general tips to be posted soon :P Just keeping things up~

Well, even with you disliking the lineart, I like how it turned out. I shall have to take another gander at another flash animation soon... :\

Very cute indeed. :D I'm not exactly sure how to get free sound effects, however. Though are you just referring to sounds that can be played on dA or just some sort of web database with free sounds? >.<
FreakyFreak95 Featured By Owner Nov 9, 2010
A web database with free sounds. And thank you. :iconsocuteplz:
VirtualManectric Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2010  Student Digital Artist
You're most welcome! 8D

Well, it would depend on the sounds you want, but I'm sure I could find some web databases and such. >3

It'sh okay. :meow:
My english teacher just gave me two links for free music and sound effects.
