Hey everyone,

Aspiring animators have been asking me for a long time to do a tutorial from start to finish. Well it's time I do that.

I will be doing a series of tutorials based on the gif I uploaded above. As you can tell, some of the gif isn't smooth. That's because I'll be showing you guys how to add "in-between" frames and some "key" frames.

I'll also be showing you how I outline, color, shade, add detail, effects, camera movement and convert the whole thing into an AVI.

I'll also show some of Premiere and how I edit.

I will get started this week and plan to release around Christmas and New Years.

While I have your attention, ask me questions that you'd like to see answered in my video. Thank you!

I'm honestly completely noob to animation, in fact I haven't even really started: what's the best way to start learning?

Buy a cheap WACOM tablet, get Flash and start doodling! Also check my tutorials to help you on your way :) Good luck!

Meh, it's okay.
Lately I've been practicing a bit because I want to make an anime after I get animating down. I'm stuck on if I should use Flash, Photoshop or both, its kinda confusing, because I love the fluidity of an animation you can make with great lines as well as you can add sounds to the animation easily. Although, it's easier for me personally to shade in photoshop than flash, and you can make good effects like, fire, blood and ice pretty easier than with flash, cause I don't really enjoy lots of symbols in my library, lol.
You think you can help me decide?
