Got to animate a load of Flash's herd galloping at the same pace for the comic trailer....It's a lot of fun trying to get them animated on model! :meow: Vincent's face scrawls around a lot, but obviously that'll be fixed! 
Ace looks so small next to this brute! ;P One of Ace's colour frame flicks for some reason...but each horse will be assembled in after effects separately when they're all finished, so no matter! 
Next is to animate Flash himself! ;P

I really like the non-colored in one, however the colored in one looks like the gallop is not correct.  The legs move adjacently when galloping, not obliquely.  Other than this little problem that I see, I really like this picture!

I always admired the fact that you go the extra step and finish your animations in the same quality that you do your stills. I love doing animations, but can not for the life of me keep the motivation going past the roughs. Your line work is also very nice in this. Do you use the size variation option in flash or do you use a specific brush? Not that flash has more than 2 brush types, but thats another major problem I seem to have. My line work always comes out like crap in flash.

Sweet Heart, your arts are flawless and i am in love with your comics. But i am really interested in your ANIMATION PROGRAM: FLASH CS5. I've saw a tutorial video of it and i really liked, made me wonder if it is that program you use for your animations, now that i see it is, i want to know where can i buy it/download it. I'd be glad if you could help me! :3

Who said you can't make a movie all on your own? You're already doing it. ;) We'll just get you some freelance voice actors and all they have to do is follow the script of the comic...

No seriously, amazingly well done.

I love this! I wish I could animate like this!! Aghh and I think Ace flicks a lil because it looks like his front legs, belly, and neck aren't shaded. They get a lighter color then get dark again so I think that's what s happening with that. But otherwise very fluid and  very awesome! :D

Love the contrast between these two characters! Can't wait to see them running together in full color!
I particularly love how this cycle isn't directly from a side view. The moving chest adds so much to it, and also gives the characters some power to their movements.

small critique: At one point in Vincent's cycle, his front legs kind of strobe a bit. I think it might be due to a repeated leg position blending with a previous frame or something, makes it look like one leg suddenly regressed to the same position as the frame before it. Also, the little rope hanging from Vincent's neck is flapping in the wind rather oddly. It would have much more appeal if it just waved instead of flickered. This sort of motion www.deviantart.com/art/Wave-Pr…

Looks great so far :D But aren't Ace legs wrong? I don't know what you call it in English, it's like a cross-galopp, either his front- or his hindlegs are the wrong way around.

it looks awesome, but on Vincents front legs, before he extends them completely, it seems to glitch, like there is a frame missing. Maybe I am looking at it wrong, but to me it seems a bit off.

this is amazing!!  It looks really realistic!  The only thing I can think of is the front feet are on the wrong lead in the last few slides, so the right leg should be reaching in front of the left leg u v u   but this is really an amazing animation!!

Hmm...very well done! If you want a suggestion, maybe have his head swing a bit more, and maybe have his feet a little bulkier, if that's what your after; a heavy, bulky horse. But if not this is simply gorgeous! I'm trying to animate myself lately, of course I fail!
