This Just In



Gee, and just after they had that big sale on Charbucks underwear. Check your labels, pals.

Actually this is a wonderful createion from acapela tv. They also have a make it yourself cute cartoon feature which will entertain you greatly if you're the only one in the room.

I'm so happy to find this stuff. Flash provides great scripting possibilities for interactive animation, but the scripting language got so complex that people don't use it for silly stuff very often.

That's funny. I like it.
That Charbucks!

How's your cartoon coming along?

Namowal said...

Thanks for asking, Sally.
Still working on it. A lot of two steps forward, one step back. For example, I blew a few hours yesterday trying to get the character to raise his arms the way I liked. The more I messed with it, the worse it got! Exhibit A in the "don't get hung up on minutia" rule.
I took a peek at the do-it-yourself cartoon link. A good reminder that animation doesn't have to be complex to be lifelike.

Heck the bunny option was expired.

Sally said...

What's the bunny option?

stray said...

At the link besides the man talking there were other options for cartoons and one had a pink rabbit. I tried making one but it said it had expired. Looked kinda like Hoops and YoYo.

The bunny option says 2008, but it still works and it's hilarious and so silly! I'll send you one, Stray. And Sally too.

They fixed it! Wasn't working the other day.
