I think presenting what you need help on to a community instead of one person would be better. But then again, some of are opinions are flawed.

I used to show a few people (especially friends) occasionally some "advance" stuff like one-on-one. But not so much anymore. Ever since I attracted a bit of a crowd and getting lots of questions like "how do you do this?" and/or "where do you get this?" It's just been too much for me.

Maybe I'm just being lazy and selfish..... maybe not. I don't know. The only way I'll be teaching something now is through video tutorials which I haven't really come across anything that will help me justify the means of making one as the subject is been covered by someone else already.

I recommend looking through some of the tutorials in the tutorial section on this site. Its very unlikely you'll have someone able to be your teacher as that is a really huge commitment and is unnecessary considering the other commitments sprite animators have already.

We're only able to give you tips dude. If you needed help on stick animating, Stone from Fluidanims be your guy.


But sprite animations...hell naw.

Stone is always busy as heck. He only haves time to teach people when he opens his small stick school, where he teaches most of his secret techniques.

BTW, yeah, do what Harry said, go to the Tutorial section and from there, start researching or even thinking. Sprite animation isn't too hard afterall.

Lmfaoyea true.

But DharcWillie. If you just made the commitment into learning MOAR Flash techniques yourself, do it yourself. Read then tutorials and put your effin' mind into it.

The first advice is, don't try to be a pro. Try to get good, not seem like someone famous.

Look at titty man's videos. Not the tuts. The anims. Short-Factors too. Then ask how can you do that and get working.

I think that you aren't accepting the fact that no one can help you do this. Make cool animations. If your good at physics, smoothness, easing, cinematography and choreography, ect., you shouldn't have this issue.

You...you animate with your heart. Sprite animating ain't no gift. Any fool can do it if they are confident and have an open mind.
Start saying that you'll make a [Sprite] Vs. [Sprite]. Say it'll make us jizz.
Start off by entertaining the thought that you can do better at spriting...

You got beef...I mean, motivation. Try it. Build your self esteem to the sky like me. I will be forever be awesome & sexy. Never a modest mother fucker like DarkZero.
Respect yo aass. Never KISS anyone's ass except teh titty man's and Lange (be cool with lange tho keep yo cool). That's right. No special treatment to one particular Spritan. That builds envy, and maybe jealousy, and that'll lead you to someone's footprints. You don't want to follow the footprints.

Make yo OWN God damn footprints. D3anims is doing that. Reeves has done that. KRAnimation is doing that. Just a minorty of people have done that, because when you follow footprints, or in your case, you want to DO something that a Sprite Animator expertt has done, you get stuck in his footprint. They are TOO God damn big for your puny feet. Realisticly, THERE IS A REASON WHY YOU CAN'T DO WHAT THAT EXPERT is DOING!!! If you are struggling trying to follow his footprints, just let it go. SOME people are able to successfully follow the footprints of an expert, but they mess it up.

A GOOD example of this is Alvin Dirtworm. Many people TRY to be famous as Alvin Earthworm. But they can't. They steal his effects and style, but it's never as good as Dirtworm's...the USE of it, I mean. Tons of flaws, and they can't copy Earthworm's style so good. That's when the trolls and critics come in, and hate on you for doing that.

So sure. You can go through a fucking hard struggle to do something like someone, and skip the skills and experience needed to make your animations decent, but overall, it'll be nothing. Sh!t, it's not even your style.
This is similar to the event where scientists cloned a sheep in the early 2000's. Looked exactly like the original, but sooner or later, it died because it had flaws and imperfect properties from the original.
Not the best illustration, but you get what I mean, right? (lord Jehovah, please.)

Right now, discontinue following the footprints. Make yours.

I updated the post so you can understand it better. lol




But we can help you go the distance with your footprints. I assure you.
I know you don't want to copy anyone, but what you want, it's stepping in a dangerous territory. Let me illustrate. I just started wrestling cause I wanted to have want Jon Cena has. Teh fame. I learned some good ass moves and I feel that I can be a pro. I travel to the famous arena to take on Jon Cena, and the match just commenced.

Pingasboy:jon mothafucka cena ima take yo ass down ima keel u. *runs towards him*
fuk yea prepare to die shame on u and ur cow motha-
Jon:*lifts teh pingboy out of tjhe arena*
pingasboy: FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUU i just got ma booty whip.
I just got my ass whipped because I stepped onto dangerous territory and thought I could take on the pros with little experience I had on wrestling.

Like you, Dharc, several times you have stated that you aren't an advance sprite animator. That your a beginner, and you want to be an advance spriter. Here you are askin for someone to teach you what he knows. We don't have the time, and THATS not the way. ONLY you can make yourself like that. Not sure if you have an ulterior motive for being famous, but animate from your heart. Harrycontrol is a brilliantly intelligent guy. He knows what it's like and how it is to do things on your own. Nigga luminary. I THINK so. in my opinion. yea yea great Spritan :)
So lieklol just take ur o

Hey DyingWillDharc,

why don't you make something and upload it to some place like SpamTheWeb and show it to us in the animation section on this site. Some of the Spritas then may give feedback on what they think about your animation. That could help, and that's one of the main purpose of that section.

I much as I hate criticism there's actually nothing more helpful to me as a sprite animator than constructive criticism.
