Flash Rigged Sprite: Prologue

Odd how a lot of my favorite sketches start on yellow, ruled notepad. For some reason or another, sitting down with a sketch pad to get some work done doesn't do it for me. However, if I'm sitting at my desk at lunch time and have a ball point pen and a legal pad near by, I can usually churn something out. I guess it is just a product of the odd times I'm inspired.

So I found a video on Youtube concerning the bone tools in Flash CS4/CS5. It looked simple enough and I wanted to finally give it a shot. I will mostly use this for enemy characters and do not intend to use it for the full range of motion. More likely I will use it for idle animations, but never the full range of motion. Hopefully it will cut into the animation time and free up some resources for more hand drawn stuff.

Hopefully I can give it a shot tomorrow. I'm going to try and do a step-by-step of the process, but I don't think it will be refined enough to call it a tutorial. I should have more to post soon.
