You have great talent, awesome work on the frame by frame animation when Link was moving about!

You are such an awsome person! Never have I seen a tutorial on animation that was very informative; its really encouraging, especially since I'm getting my own flash program this week. So I'll be looking to you for guidence and reference!

Also, I can't wait to see new animations from you, even if they don't hit front page, I'll still watch and criticise! Keep up the fantastic work and have fun with it! 8D

I can see why you got the front page! Good job! ^.^

will all of your other stuff also be able to overload my CPU without actually doing much? that's a problem which has plagued me ever since flash 8 came out so it really isn't your fault, but still...

Welcome to Newgrounds!!!!! Im amazed at our work :D! Your blog about animation tutorials is really helpful, i specially liked how you do the backgrounds, i dont use programs other than flash for my (few) animations, so i cant believe how easy it can be to just set the light and shadow values and then use a few colors under them to make th ebackground look awesome. I dont like working with bitmaps but now ill start doing it : )

You are amazing. I hope to see more animations from you here :D!

also, what do you use for drawing on the computer? mouse, tablet or tablet PC/screen?
