Uhhmm, hi, kinda weird request here, nothing nasty or anything, just not traditional, I think.

Could you make a wombat by a stove, making pancakes, flipping them over its head on to a large plate on a table where another wombat and a meerkat are feasting on pancakes original.gif

I don't even know what a wombat looks like  blink.gif

Find a pic of wombats flipping pancakes, and I'll animate it, how's that?  thumbsup.gif

Im fairly sure there isnt any picture of a wombat flipping pancakes, not really their kind of thing unfortunately  wink2.gif

Here is the best wombat site there is, see if you find some inspiration here grin2.gif

Pannkakskungen,

what you're looking for isn't impossible, and I don't speak for every animator when I say this but without a pic to go on I don't think I can do it, I can draw basic (and I mean basic) cartoon characters, or animate some complicated ones but I simply don't have the means to draw something like that.

I apologise, maybe another animator can help  sad.gif

ooh i accept the challenge!  geek.gif

edit: considering our school got into the Grand Final grin2.gif grin2.gif grin2.gif For our Rock Eisteddfod i thought I'd get into the spirit of things and create an avatar to go with our theme grin2.gif

Hi all,

I had my avie done by UA when I first joined and am ready for a slight change. As I'm still totally useless with computers would someone be able to try a few things.

Either her hair blowing as though there's a strong wind or the clouds lighting up like when there's lightning going off in it.

Or anything else that you think would work.

Thanking you in advance, Tia

It looks a bit dark to have the hair wave as it's almost the same colour as the background, a lightning strike is fairly simple to add though.

Anyone else want to have a go at this one? There's a animating lightning tutorial in the first post of this thread  thumbsup.gif
