I can have a go Ria although I'm not a huge footie fan, which would be better the Blackburn or Arsenal one?

Also, you might want to change your sig, it says I animated your avatar and while it is very well done it was not me who did it  thumbsup.gif

Hey Ria,

I did the cannon firing too, although I didn't feel the need for the cannon ball. Hope it's ok...

Edit: For the Blackburn avatar, it would be difficult to do what you ask because the writing is curved, I'll have a go though.

Anyone else got any ideas how to do it? The only thing I can think of at the moment is using WordArt to see if I can match the curves  thumbsup.gif

Don't let it discourage you JBC, you're stuff is still great and I think it's fantastic you're having a go. You've come a long way in just a few days and you shouldn't put your work down  thumbsup.gif

I think an important thing to remember is trying to imagine how things move in real life. Things like lightning/ blinking/ gunfire should never be more than one frame as they are too fast for the eye to see.

What should be animated is the effect of the lightning or gun, so you'd have one frame for the lightning and then a few for the flash afterwards. Or in this example, one frame for the cannon shot then a few for the smoke afterwards.

I hope that wasn't too patronising, it's meant to help not hinder  thumbsup.gif
