So, first of all... sorry for not having uploaded anything for over a month!  That leads me to something else: happy (very belated) 2013!  Okay, on with the actual post.

So this is a human lip-synch that was our first animation assignment for second semester.  It is literally a mouth synching with a piece of provided dialogue.  I had quite a bit of fun with this.  The process of analyzing the dialogue track frame-by-frame and then putting it into an animation is rather enjoyable!  Okay, here it is:

And this animation... well, it's not my best, but there are a few things in it that I like.  This hopefully would've been better with some more time, but oh well.  This is the last animation of first semester.  It was my first time animating in Flash, and, well... it shows.  It was rather tough to get used to drawing in Flash.  Especially since this was during the last two weeks of the semester, meaning it was very busy!  The keys are all drawn in full, but a lot of the other stuff is still really rough; some frames don't even have a body.  I wish I could have put in more moving holds, since the character freezes in several poses before moving onto the next poses.  Oh well; it was a good learning experience.

I should give some credit to Steve and Ricardo for helping me along in Flash and animating.   Steve's Tumblr can be found here, and Ricardo just set up a new blog that can be found here.


  1. wow, love the lip synch! the mouth design is great, the teeth kill me.

    1. Haha, thanks Leslie! Got the teeth idea partly from Ricardo; his is even more bizarre, but awesome :P

  2. Its typical for us artists to go months with out saying a word since we're usually so engrossed in out work.
    Kind of like cats and sleeping/eating or stalking. ;)

    Great stuff none the less.
