Hey whoever is reading this :P
Neil the Ninja, my introductory film for this character is in progress and going well, I'm certainly learning a lot by doing this!
I've managed to work out the perspective illusion, various filters and painstaking frame-by-frame animation. Needless to say, I've already trumped my first flash!
Here's a little screen-shot of the intro shot. (Imagine panning left rapidly, with the mountains motion blurring :P) Oh and I'm proud of the blowing bandanas in the wind, took me ages to find the eureka moment of how I can make them look good!
If you are reading this, let me know what you think!
