Hi, I'm Hiperrojo1 but you can call me Hiper or Red(Not the Pokemon one). I still need to learn how to animate and how to make edits of characters. I will like any kind of help.
As for proyects... I have one in mind, with no name yet, but it's to explain about the characters I will like to make(and it will be short).
I have a Youtube channel by the name Hiperrojo1, but it's not about animations(and it's in Spanish).
When I make the channel for the animations I will make them in English(And maybe translate them to Spanish)
Also can somebody tell me what programs should I use for animating?

About me, I'm 15 years at the moment, and usually a serious person, but when I want I can be a little weird(in a good way).
Also I'm a big videogame fan(especially retro games), but I like to watch some anime time from time. The thing that game me inspiration was Super Mario Bros Z, because I loved that(and happy there is a reboot coming) and I wanted to do animations but never how(I was 7 or so), that made me lose the inspiration, but when I discovered SquirrelKidd my inspiration came back and seeing how he said this was a good site for Spriters I decided to join.
I think that's all I needed to say, I hope I can enjoy being in this community and learn how to animate.
(Sorry if I have any typos, English isn't my first language)

Wow your English is actually pretty good even though it's not your first language.

Anyways, Welcome! I'm Rapidfir3Pho3nix though people usually call me Rapid and I'm one of the admins of this place!

Yeah a lot of people get inspired by SMBZ, it's a great series and I'm super excited for the reboot!

So as far as Sprite Animation goes all you really only need an image editor like Paint.NET or Photoshop since animations are really just a set of images played really fast, but trust me, you do not want to waste your time animating in those programs.

Most animations are made in Adobe Flash since it has a lot of good features that make animating easier and faster. Sometimes people will use Adobe After Effects (AE), but in my experience AE isn't as intuitive as Flash when it comes to animation though if you can animate with it then you can get a bit more out of it. I'd suggest learning Sprite Animation in Flash first. The main versions of Flash we use are Macromedia Flash 8, Adobe Flash CS3, and here recently it seems people have been using Flash CS6 but yeah people usually stick with either 8 or CS3. I'm more partial to Flash CS3 myself.

As for learning Sprite animation we got some pretty good tutorials here. I would say MOST of us here at this forum learned sprite animate with these tutorials:

https://www.thespritas.com/t184-how-to-sprite-animate-with-flash


So yeah go through these and practice and you'll start to get the hang of it. Then when you make an animation be sure to come back and show us :)

Thanks for the info Rapid, I will make sure to share my animations when I finish them(because classes take too much time of my life). Also, your Typhlosion avatar looks very good.

Well, A guy who's 2 years older than me.


Hi! I'm Davidchao22. I'm the dude around here who tries to do a battle animation correctly. I'm mostly inspired by DestructionSeries on YT, and SMBZ in the past. Hope to see some good stuff from you sometime.

on another note, welcome friend. We hope you enjoy yourself here and post lots of animations for us to watch and critique to the best of our ability! I'm SXR, your friendlyish mod around these parts! I'm a sonic fanatic (sort of) and lover of many things.

You got any questions, feel free to ask.
