Anyone that is good in animation/flash who sees this are very VERY welcome to give me feedback about how I can improve this.

This will be scrapped later.

This is pretty much a practice/experiment in flash. I wanted to try out classic frame-to-frame animation. of course I picked a walking t-rex. You can almost see the "rough" sketch behind it.

My friend have the book "The Animators Survival Kit". That book has helped and learned me 10 times more about animation than all tutorials I find here on dA.

I like the flow in this one compared to the skeleton-version in which I used "bone-animation" (works as a motion tween for you who know flash) and that was more difficult to make compared to classic-animation.

I tried to do a outlined version on this one but soon realized that it woulf be too much of a project to finish atm. Since I have to draw every single frame over and over. Yes you can copy and paste the frame, but you also need to change the legs position etc etc.

When I get time I will make a finished version of this. As for now, see this as a simple reference!

You know that page in the Animators Survival Kit with the dude with the box head? If you try animating this again, check that page out! I think you've got the actual walk pinned down brilliantly, but the box head guy shows you the tilting motion of the head... which I think it what you need here ^^

Fantastic job otherwise! :D

Maybe slow it down and thicken the legs? You know, give it some more weight :) Still, it looks really good, nice and smooth. I like the tail <3

I have little to crit, since it looks so awesome. The only thing I can suggest is to have that the position of the head where it's pivoting could be improved. (Does that makes sense?) Anyway, I'd try and move that still area between the head and neck a little more.

Something else I need to add is those legs look great.

Thank you for the feedback! And yes, the head could use of some more movement - it was a bit tricky since this is one of my first attempts of frame-by-frame animation (still very fun!)

and your avatar makes me dizzy!

Success.
Also, I'd consider it minor. If it were me, being the lazy one I am, I probably wouldn't change it. But, yeah. If you strive for perfection.

Great Animation! But T-Rex was not so fast. It was a 7 ton killing machine. So make this animation slowerand then it's perfect!
