Ahhh, thankyou! The program that I use mostly (Illustrator) is a vector program, very good for simple colours and cell shading~
I used Illustrator CS4 to draw the head model and make the frames (because it's vectors, expressions are easily tweaked, meaning that I don't have to redraw each frame for something like this). Then, I basically copy-pasted the frames into Flash CS4, and put them together there, adding in the shoulder and head movement (the head and body were actually on different layers for this animation).
It's complicated, but only because I basically kind of made up my own way of doing things as I went along. Never used a guide or FAQ or whatever, I just kind of played with Illustrator and Flash until I got results, xDD. But anyway, thankyou~ love your galley btw, expect comments on that soon~
Well, I kind of figured out my own way of doing this sort of thing, as I played around with Illustrator more and more (as a hint - I use the Pen Tool and the Live Paint Bucket Tool lots, they're very important in this style). The important thing is that you need to have both Illustrator and Flash available - Illustrator can't do the animation part of things, and Flash can't really do nice models~
Well, Werewolf Week isn't official or anything - it's just that 'Werewolf' is the name of a game I've been running on a YGO RP group. (Here's what the game's all about: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Werewolf… , and I'm basically using this ruleset: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ultimate… ) Since I was running the game for a week, we decided to term the week 'Werewolf Week'.
And over here, I've finally finished school forever - I had my final final exam just yesterday (Music - I had to analyse and answer questions on this thing www.youtube.com/watch?v=OrTyD7… , which I wasn't very happy about how is that thing even proper music, screams the oboe player...). The exams have made me too tired to really celebrate at the moment, but I'm in a fairly good mood nonetheless~
