ERMAGERD. I need some help with the sketch. MY SKETCHES DON'T GO WELL. I wish the 50x50 would be bigger... THAT WOULD MAKE MY JOB WAY MORE EASIER.

This is a great help
By chance do you know of programs I could use to animate something?
Reply

felw Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013   Digital Artist
Hmm, do you have a program with layers?

TheSyrin Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I have Photoshop 7

felw Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013   Digital Artist
yep, so what you'll want to do is ever so slightly either add a blink animation or whatever across the layers. kind of like it is here. [link]
see all the different views? well each of those would be on their own layer and when you finish animating the layers just hit "save for web" then when the screen comes up hit "animate" and just adjust the speed down the bottom and preview your image. there are heaps of tutorials on it

Thank you so much i had no idea you could animate with photoshop and thought you had to have other software/programs to do it.
Would you suggest drawing out the main figure then copying and adjusting it to eventually animate or?
