Pencil test of current progress in animation class. I already know of the mistakes and such...I just wanted to show you guys what's up in that little corner of the universe.

Depicted are simplified versions of Apex and Dito playing parts as musicians. Apex is excited about the idea, while Dito...not so much. He thinks "magic" is all a hoax, a ploy to make little kids believe what is not there.

Dito, you cynic.

Awww, it's too bad that's been happening, really. :/

I used...ummm...it's a program that comes with a camera and you take individual pictures of each frame, but I can't remember what it's called. It's a Japanese program...

*can't remember!* DX

that looks really awesome so far ^__^ I wonder if I could also do animations with pencil ... but then I think it would be to much work and paper for me XD I am trying to animate with flash at the moment and I am content enough ...^^

Hehehe, I have a special lightbox that allowed me to do animations like that, and my school also has a program where you can film it using a simple program...but both are rather expensive

but how did you get it to just play..?
on my animation you have to click the download button to see it...

You have to click download for yours because it's a .gif file while I converted mine from a .mov (quicktime) to .swf (flash)

Thanks, and yours looks pretty cool!
