Stumbles in Flash

Here's a version of Stumbles in Flash. I really don't like his shoes, but other than that, I think all the other textures came out pretty well. Though I think his ear get's lost. And I wanna figure out a way to shade so it looks like cross hatching but it's still dynamic. I really hope flash doesn't crash from all these layers. Crap.

Brand New Stumbles

So here's my new Stumbles design! I have to say I really like it, from his cow tail, to his mis-matched but semi stylish clothing, to his herbivorish separated eyes. I decided on a mixture of a cow, a dog, and a donkey. Or perhaps just a dog and a donkey. But then he'd be a dogkey or a donkdog? I'd rather the audience wonder just what's in his genes.

Oh and those aren't tiny antlers, they're branches. That's right, Stumbles is so dumb, he literally has wood for brains. :D

Twinkle-Toes Blusto

So here's a pic of what Blusto would look like in my 11 second animation that I haven't finished yet and have put at the tail end of a very long to-do list. The Gag was that Rickety was a judge for the "little miss Adorable"contest and Blusto wanted to enter, and of course he didn't win. Hence the dialogue.

I thought it was funny and I really wish I had finished it by the deadline, just so I could be done with it. Now, not only do I not have a deadline to finish by, I have little motivation to finish an animation that would take time away from my big huge animation I'm supposed to spend time on, especially with a character that won't even be in it.

Oh well. Perhaps I'll finish it. I'm still working on the look and effects of the animation. I want to mimic some sort of shading effect you'd see in a pencil drawing but with animation, and also get that "cut-out" look without the "cut-out" animation.

Hooray for testing!
