:phew: Making this took a LOT more work than you might suspect.... This is the college Web Animation midterm that kept me busy for hours on end every evening this week; it was made entirely in Flash, including all of the artwork, with the mouse because I kept forgetting to bring my tablet along until I'd already finished drawing everything. ^^;

Anyway, it has its own self-contained story....the joke here is, of course, that in Japanese bento boxed lunches people tend to give the foods faces and make them so cute that it's hard to eat them...so, what if they thought they were too cute to be eaten? And then, what if they turned out to be wrong? :giggle: Here is the result.

The assignment, by the way, was to make a one-minute animation advertising something...I chose bento, and as you can see I went over the time juuuust a bit. ^^;

All that aside, I hope you have fun watching it! =)

P.S.: Here is the concept art for it: [link] :heart:

P.S.S.: Here's the cast as human characters: [link] :giggle:

I drew all of these guys with my mouse in Flash, and animated the whole thing using Flash's animation techniques such as paths for them to travel on, nested movie clips for movements within movements, and adjusting the timing until it looked just right. :giggle:

It took a lot of work--this was my college midterm for the quarter. The final was just a test, if I recall, so this was probably my best work from the entire class. :giggle:

Because I work from home, and DA is one of several things I was doing at the same time, so I didn't pay complete attention to it. :shrug:

well 4 starters how do u make emoticons
Reply
:iconthreshie:
Threshie Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2010  Professional Traditional Artist
To make an emotion, usually you type a word between : : marks with no spaces. For example, : heart : without the spaces becomes :heart:

At the bottom right corner of message boxes you type into, there's a little link called "Emoticons". Click it for a popup window listing all the emotions you can make on this site. =) Very handy if you haven't memorized any of them yet!
