I entered a little animated valentine into a contest with Toon Boom using their software Flip Doodle Boom which they offered free as a download until February 10.
I spent several days learning how to use it until I created this little video. I have posted it on you tube.
Flip Doodle Boom is designed for kids and is easy to use if one is truly interested in animation.
I think creating animations must be good for brains. Better than crossword puzzles perhaps? For example: One might wake up from sound sleep in the dark night with the perfect solution and a way to move weird little pigs around in balloons. Crazy making perhaps? But fun if one is so inclined. There are a few of us out there.
I feel happy to have finished this and to have had the opportunity to learn a little bit of this wonderful little animation program. Now I want to make more.
