A friend of mine is a budding animator and has just spent his first lesson with Flash with me... after 30 minutes he created this halloween masterpiece! Let me know your thoughts on it... he is too shy to post himself, his username is Colin when he does though... go gentle on him!

two things
he msut be a heck of a talent !!!
or you must be a heck of a teacher !!

this thing looks good i which i had this talent ... if this would be my first animation .. i would post and say ok fellas mess with me :)

mark tell him he has done a very good job ... no shyness needed ...we all have started and someone still do (like me )
but itīs cool really i like it !!!

Sugoi! Sugoi! Sugoi! reen, maybe it's both mark's wonderful teachin, and a natural talent for flash animation...i tried teaching flash to a friend once...after 30 minutes or so...she still couldn't figure out what the lasso does...^_^"

well, that's really not bad =)
what i like the most are the colors. Just a suggestion, for the lines (of the skull), beter use the "H" size . That's just what i think.
anyways, good job ! go on this way !

love the background and colors. Very nice. Next teach him to move the moon along a motion guide (I think that is what you call it.) so it doesn't stop midway and then start off at another angle. Other than that I think it was great.

I'm off to shoot myself now.

Very nice, very stylistic.
A good first go at Flash.
(I like the swirly-eyes skull!)

I like it, where can I find vector images like that or are all those self made? :) Great Job!

Mark, you give Colin the power of FLASH and he carves your TOMBSTONE?!!

Proof that death doesn't stop FLASH!

The graveyard is from arttoday.com Colin drew the skull and moon and cloud... Another Flash Addict in the making.

one thing. its awesome. other thing. make it so that it can loop. tell him to finish it of. ya know make the eys go back in plae and the moon go under and then it loops.

This is a nice animation, but I do agree with Akane if
the line size is H it would look even cooler.
Man, my first animation in flash was no one near as good this.

Thanks guys. I wasn't actually too shy...I just never thought of it. Thanks for talking me up... I might just have to try and come up with something all on my lonesome now.
