(if you didn’t get that reference you missed one of the best tv series ever)

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing some animation for a while, and now that we have to for college I’ve been playing around with Flash a bit. I don’t want to resort to tweening, so I’ve been trying my hand at some rotoscoping with my tablet.

This was a college assignment, we got a chunk of 12 seconds from a song (in this case Crystal Method – Keep Hope Alive) and we were free to animate whatever we wanted to it. So I made a guy free-running across rooftops. Admittedly not the easiest thing to animate 🙂 but it turned out surprisingly awesome!

All hand-animated with my tablet in Flash in two very intense days, no tracing involved, only some reference from freerunning clips on Youtube.
