February '10 - A flapping flag

Postby pixelgeek » Tue Feb 02, 2010 1:20 am

Wow - February already? Where is the year going so fast? Thanks to all of you that contributed icons last month. We'll be wading through those, tweaking, updating and submitting them over the next few weeks.

This month's challenge is to animate a flag flapping in the breeze. Simple, huh?

Only 3 keyframes? That's well done!

Waaaw nice Synfig flag Genete !
A bit too much regular or mechanic as you said, but it's already efficient.

Here is my flag. It's not so good as those of Genete or Animtim, but it's that I can do. :)

I do not attach the file because I made too many mistakes. I started to move the flag backwards, so I duplicated frames, but I can not erase the first. :?

Looks very good! I like the shadow effect.

With or without mistakes I'd love to see the file. :oops:
