Last Spring I took a digital animation class and got to try out Flash for the first time. I have a few other assignments that I’ll be posting, but here’s a test scene for my thesis that I created as a final project for that course. I really like how Woofie, the dog, turned out. For Hazel, the main character, I think that the aesthetic of fully-hand drawn animation will work a lot better than the cut-out style lip-sync that I used here. I guess that’s why we do tests!
I’m pretty sure that I’ll be using TVPaint software for my thesis – it’s designed specifically for hand-drawn animation. However, I’d love to play around in Flash more using some characters designed specifically for the more puppet-like strengths of that program.
