I promised ageeeeeeeeeeees ago that i'd do some flash tutorials, and today i managed to find some time to scrape one together.

I've seen endless tutorials on dA teaching people how to tween a circle across a screen, one even spent 10 mins faffing around with "LOL aren't i funny" before getting to that tweeny circle part.

Which is a big waste of time.

So, here's a tutorial from me. Its straight to the point and should be user friendly, though if you do come across any bugs or problems let me know!

The First tutorial i have for you is: Walk Cycles.

Why? Because they are the trickiest things to get right and the also teach you the idea behind key frames, inbetweens and a little bit of easing, so it should be a fun start.

I hope this helps out those people that have wanted to animate their characters but haven't the slightest clue where to being.

For this tutorial i'd recommend using flash 8 and a pen tablet, though other flashes will still work, flash 8 proves to be a little less of a hastle to work with.

Hope you enjoy~

your tutorial is really helpful! Our school is actually using it for grade 10 animation class so we have to make a walk cycle based off your tutorial and it's so easy that even the least experienced animators in the class can do it! Excellent tutorial! If I could rate it out of 5 stars i'd give it a 10. : D
