I'm an artist and flash animator. Recently, I've begun learning Maya 8.5. Okay, my avatar is not a picture of me. In fact, it is a picture of a famous Japanese singer who sang in an all girl pop group named SPEED during the mid to late 90s. Her name is Hiroko Shimabukuro. Hiro for short. Unfortunately, they disbanded several years ago. I recently found out they are back together and singing as SPEED. Freelance Union Article: 5 Tips for Preventing Procrastination.

Gif Animation in Macromedia Flash MX

These three sketches are extreme drawings in a short Gif animation I started working on today. I've wanted to play around with making Gif animations since I first found out about them many years ago. Flash is a superb animation software to create these little mini movies. Back in the day, I started using Macromedia Flash 5. At the time, I thought it was too complicated to learn. Now, I've got Adobe Flash CS 5 but, I'm not as familiar with it as I am Macromedia Flash MX. Although it's antiquated, it's a solid piece of animation software that I fully intend to push to create some pretty dazzling animated art. I'm keeping this very loose so I don't over work anything and to work quickly. The third drawing is a mirror image of the first drawing and it will need to be redrawn for more consistency. I'll color this and post both the line art and color versions later. I think I may start animating something every week and post it here.
