Music Used in this animation - Mr.Scruff - This Way

Esteem's been in the gutter/not-existant recently, but I'll be just fine soon. Anyway, its been a while since I've drawn my kitteh cat, Faulkner. He needed some love. Also, car dashboards + tunnel lighting is very VERY tricky to do.

Hope you enjoy. I tried to make this one more focused on execution, and I hand tweened a very very large portion of this image. I haven't done that much tweening before, so bare with me as it is my first extended attempt at it, but with this, i'm definitely going to be upping my content as I feel that I can go somewhere with it. Also, haven't found the scripting bug yet in the preloader percentage, I'm sorry I'm still a nub at actionscript. I'll get it someday!

Amazing! How do you export from AE to Flash?

in AE i set it to render as a PNG sequence and save to a folder.  Then in Flash i import the png sequence to the stage, and then export from flash after i get all my scripting in

You never cease to amaze me with these <3 I seriously envy and admire your ability to not just animate but bring life to what you do with your animations. It's impressive!
I love the scenes you used, this has  really cool vibe to it.

Perhaps my only critique would be that he seems a bit stiff, like I feel like he should have some other movement even if it's slight. Nothing major since the outside background seems to be the focus but perhaps some small arm movement on the left arm would make him more fitting. But that's not really much of a big deal.

Anywho this really is great. I hope you feel better esteem wise, you are such a talented artist who's grown so much so fast. :heart:

. . . DAMN! O3o

ONE: Nice inside of the car. Futuristic and technological. The way I like most vehicles.
TWO: Terrific transitioning between tunnel and city (or probably just the lights of docks since it's across the water).
THREE: The change in lightning between the tunnel to the night outside is gorgeous!
FOUR: You capture the driving flawlessly! Even the music adds on.

JAZZ IS FUN!

I feel like his hand that is sticking up is a bit awkward... like there should be a cigarette in it or something, or it should be resting along the door's edge or...I don't know. Otherwise I can't complain, I could watch this for hours! It's amazing :D

maybe in the next one like this you do, he could be doing something with his hand? I know that if I have my hand in the air, I'm absently flexing or twirling my fingers.

Looks awesome :) I like the amount of detail you put into the animation, not just the tunnel, but the motion of the car itself and the eyes blinking, it actually looks like he could be really driving instead of just a still with an animated background. Excellent work. :)
