Article Round-up

Justin | Animate/Flash,articles,design,links,tips | Tuesday, October 19th, 2010

We’re keeping quite busy around here! Here’s a quick round-up of some recent articles that I’ve published.

5 Flash Animation tips in 5 days on the Peachpit blogs:

Also on the Peachpit site, there’s an excerpt on Character Animation from our recent book with Chris Georgenes.

I also have a new video tutorial over at ActiveTuts+ on Creating Advanced Motion Presets in Flash with JSFL.

In addition to the recent advice page I added on Learning Flash, I’m working on a page about becoming a graphic designer/Flash animator/digital artist. It includes some of my background and lessons learned. That article is pretty much on hold as we work toward the SmartMouth release (hopefully just another week), and I will pick it up after that.
