I totally fell for it.
Uuh, did my little blurb about me thing always say revolution? I was sure it said animation before...

So I haven't submitted a real animation since March of the Snowmen. I saw how popular and easy to make sprite movies were, and my 12-year-old mind was easy to sway. Of course, when I made the nose-army account I pictured my web-personality to be super popular and I wanted to get to that stage any way I could. I now realize that sprite movies are unoriginal, lazy, and take away credit from the poor artists that actually put effort into their work, and I will not be following that path again.
So anyways, me and eyerecon had this idea for a two-person collab about anything we wanted, and we each started making parts for it (some of which got finished) but then we thought that we'd been pushing off our BIG project Praelia for too long, so we ditched it. I put a lot of effort into a couple of the parts for the collab, so I wanted to show them to you, to let you know what stage I'm at with animation. They're not quite finished, so they probably won't look quite up to par.
Nonsensical stick fight.
And I'll post the big fancy preloader if *ahem* EYERECON WILL SEND ME THE COMPLETED VERSION. Which I hope he will.

Ok, me and eyerecon are working on some pretty heavy duty cartoons at the moment, so I thought I'd set some animating goals for us. These are so that we don't do 20 frames on a project one day and then leave it for 3 months and come back and forget what brush size and animating style we were using. I'm gonna post it here because I thought maybe some people would like to use it for their stuff.
So, with out further ado...
Skeletons: 5 frames per day.
Final animation: 4 frames per day. (tweens count as 1 frame, no matter how long they are)
Backgrounds: 1 per day.
Colour: 10 frames per day.
If this rule set works for you, feel free to use it, but this is mainly for me and eyerecon.

I'm pretty ashamed looking at my submission list rite now.
Dreamland Blitz, Sprite TV, Toon Link VS Ganondorf...
Well I guess mistakes are part of progress. I'm going to have to say I refuse to be ashamed of Dreamland Blitz though, I actually spent a lot of time drawing... tracing... copying sprites... sigh...
Ah well, I'll make up for it with... the Mortal Kombat Kollab...
I'm gonna say it doesn't count, cause I fully animated my part as practice for my later projects. That makes everything alright, right guys?

Neo-Fusion is hosting a fun little MK collab and we are still looking for people to join. I had a lot of fun with my part, so I don't see why you shouldn't. Here are the official collab rules, copied and pasted right from the thread:
1. Experienced sprite animators only.
2. If you aren't experienced make a little demo of what you can do and I will decide.
3. PLEASE DO NOT JOIN IF YOU WILL BACKOUT SOON AFTER
1. Flash 8 or lower
2. Canvas Size 450 by 270
3. Canvas Background: Black
4. Frames per second: 25
5. Please add your own sound effects... make them as event
6. Please add your own music... try and optimize it by editing it or something
When making your part please do the following
1. Name all of your library items something unique
2. You have one fight so make it really good =D.
3. Fights are required to be 30 seconds- 1 minute long. I am flexible for a few seconds over... not a few under.
Also, I drew mah first picture in photoshop for a kid who sits next to me in science. He's writing a short story. Here's the full sized pic.

So this guy who sits next to me in science is writing a short story and he, realizing my indisputable artistic talent (he looked at a couple of my doodles) decided to ask me to do a cover for his story. It's my first full drawing in photoshop, and I'm hoping to be able to learn more of it so that I can eventually use it in my flash. Here's the fullsize
