Walk Cycle - Flash Animation Tutorial

The above animation has been done in Flash.

Initially we need to design the walk cycle in 8 frames for half walk cycle. Copy all the 8 frames and paste them after 8th frame to have total 16 frames for complete walk cycle. Flip horizontally Each frame from 9 to 16. The frame rate set to 36fps.

You can design skeleton Character either in Flash or Photoshop.
I designed them in photoshop with the help of vector masks.

Signature Fun

Transformation of the signature in to Cartoon Face by Dr.Jayadev Babu, M.Sc.,Ph.D., Cartoonist and 2D Animator.

Dr. Sajja Jayadev Babu, M.Sc., Ph.D., is a Cartooonist and 2D Animator. He is my mentor. I got inspired from his simple lines of cartooning and learned how to draw cartoons. He was my faculty for 2D animation.

In the year 2008 I visited his home in Chennai along with my family. My daughter was very curious about to see how he is going to convert her simple signature in to a funky drawing. No one knows what would be the final out come. All were curiously watching the transformation of signature in to cartoon face.

I captured all the action with my Cam Recorder. With his permission I have uploaded the video to youtube on 19 Mar 2009.
Thanks to Dr. Sajja Jayedev Babu for his valuable time.
