YAY I got this done!! I started this animation about 3 weeks ago in a Flash tutorial in our university, then put it aside because I was overloaded with new projects and now finally finished it!

The sketching of this animation took surprisingly few time. I got almost all the movements right what surprised me a lot. But inking the frames was really hard, especially the flowy mane and tail x.x

But I am super proud of the result! :happybounce:


Here are the steps of how I did it:
1) Sketching in Adobe Flash
2) Inking the frames
3) Fill-in colours
4) Paint background in Photoshop
5) Add the lantern
6) Paint the glow effects in Photoshop
7) Overlay the glow layers in Flash

I even tried to work with After Effects a bit but I gave up. I just love Flash too much and the combination of Flash and PS kicks ass.

A-FREAKING-MAZING. I love it's little hands and back paws! :heart: The tail is so flourishy and wavy, you did such an awesome job keeping everything smooth. :'D I am LOVING that perspective. So badass, he's like "Yeah. I can fly into a camera WHENEVER I want. Bitch please."
Everything just moves so perfectly well, like, each move totally works along with the other 8O Ohhhhh and dat fire. That was such an awesome touch, it really makes the animation feel alive 8D He looks untamable, such a majestic creature! Sorry it took me forever to comment by the way 8O My inbox is uber full xD

wow this is just amazing
you got the flow of the dragon just right!
and everydetail, just wow!

I could watchh it over and over again c:

But i think the mouvement is just a teeny bit slow, but in my opinion that makes it more peaceful and elegant c:

Thank you so much!! At first I thought I hadn't put enough detail into it even XD
Oh you're right, I really don't like how the frame times are so limited in Flash, so I can't make it much faster or much slower at places, otherwise it would be too fast or something.
Thanks again :'D

Yeah flash makes me mad sometimes, you have so much trouble moviing the frames around, and espiecially putting a new frame in between 2 older frames D:
Hehe my pleasure! c:

Ohh I figured that out fairly quick, I looked at a couple of Flash tutorials, memorized shortcuts lke F5 or F7 and now I feel boss :D I really like flash.

Do you animate as well?

oh pfft XDD Haha i should try not being so lazy and try that
Well a little bit, I started last month and i guess i never got to it XD It's just really hard and it takes alot of time and with school and all it makes it pratically impossible D: Which is why i stick to still drawings XD but maybe one day, just ONE day ill try a real animation because when i grow up i sorta want to become an animator c:

(If your interested here are some of my first few animations XD Very sketchy and simple with lots of mistakes [link] [link] [link] [link])

Yes, bit more than a few^^ especially the lining of all the frames takes a long time, hard to get them smooth

You're welcome. I only know about the difficulty of making animations because I had to make 2 for IT one was a still image animation the other was just some sort of thing that I cannot remember anyway when I did it we had the stuff already at our disposal so I can't imagine how hard it is from scratch. 0_0

haha yeah probably, but I really love Flash, because it's easy to sketch and edit animation frames on there. So I can just go all DERP with my ideas and delete them afterwards or just edit them, it's awesome^^
