the electrifying adventures of SPARKY

Post by Djaxx » Mon Dec 15, 2008 1:28 am

Here's one cover art. More pages soon to follow!

Originally, the plan was to organize a comic anthology with five or six artists and writers doing their own take on the hero. Given the fact that all those working on this book are busy with school and life, it is hard to take time out and actually plan and create a short comic.
The idea of this anthology was to have each of the comics as a period piece. The anthology would start off with the origins of 'Sparky' which would be drawn like those comics of the 1940's. As the short stories go along, so do the times with the final comic ending in the 90's.

Comic from around the 1970s:

Very cool man. I can tell you put a bit of work into this.

If you ever get a move on with that anthology again, I'd certainly like to throw in.

I'm basically self taught. I think most of us have done the stick man flip book thing which is the basics of animation. I also watch a lot of special features! My suggestion would be to just start doing it. Flash is a good way to start because its all digital and simple to use. I took the flash tutorial that comes with the program. It was really helpful.
As for the Sparky animation, that was all drawn on paper and scanned in to be colored in ps. I don't know everything and I probably do a lot of things the hard way... but maybe one day I'll make my own tutorial on how I animate... haha.
