...

Ive been working on some Eshots and static web banner adverts for my E-commerce portfolio, and was given an animation program to try some animated web banners. Above is the result of about 5 hours work. Bear in mind although the images are lifted from the BB rulebook they are in B&W so i have coloured them by hand !! Cool

Yay blood!  Haha.

Good work on the coloring.  The only thing I'd do different is make the text stay on the image for a while longer, especially the final frames... I hardly have enough time to read the thing!

Oh, also, the grass not moving with the line, that bugs me.  TO NO END.  Grin

How'd you go about the coloring?

In Photoshop:

Set B&W image as background,
Add layer  
Select transparent (or Multiple)
Paint

I think your right about the text, will prolly make it a little longer.

I cant be arsed to fix the grass, I didn't even consider it a problem *shrug*

Okay.  A little tip, if you set the black and white image layer to Multiply, it'll turn everything that's white transparent, and you can add a layer underneath to color on.  Anything below the picture layer will be seen, so when you paint, you don't have to worry about painting over the lines.

The grass isn't a problem, it just bugs me.  Smiley
