It's called Roto-Scope. Also known as, tracing.
Don't take the credit my friend, if anything you are an decent tracer. Those movements were all roto-scoped. Those who are confused, Google it. The rest it means nothing more than traced out the actual film, frame by frame. Now, I don't review very much at all. But, I'm sure this will get front page, and I'm not going to let you get away with saying you drew it. Ask any of us vets here of animation. Unless of course you will swear up and down you animated that from your head, in that clase close the porn, get out of your house and submit that to a studio! Your better than many of us, who've been at this for years!
Not 8 words into the description did I mention that this was, indeed, roto-scoped. And, yup, you guessed it, I traced the whole damn thing. I also directed/shot/edited and corriographed the entire video portion.
I'm not trying anything break-through here, I'm not even saying it makes any sence, there is plenty of stuff I could of done to make it more visually comprehendable, I just wanted to see if I had the endurance to pull this off. Plus I was bored with tweening and programing and I thought this would be nice practice for tackling real FBF animation. Like it or not, here it is.
Also, how do you think the animators on the Lord of the Rings got Gollum to look so life like in his movements? I'll give you a hint: it starts with "r" and ends with "oto-scoping".
Regardless, thank you for your time,

Superb. Excellent! Again? Finish Him!
Very, very, sharp writing. You have skills friend. It's the only thing that placed this on the front page. Graphics were medicore, and voice acting was terrible. But, your screenplay had heart, at all it's jokes. You felt like those three actually could be roomates. My props.
Randy, the sprite crown now belongs to you...
I'm not sure if you read your reviews or not buddy, but contact me. First check out some of my work to get an idea for my style. I have a major project in the works. I'm an art student, obtaining my bachelors in Media Arts, and Animation. I'll explain everything once we get in touch, but I know it's right up your alley. This flash is the masterpiece of sprite animation, I'm serious Randy you completely outdid yourself. No one will ever come close to the sheer perfection, that is Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom...
Definately a time waster.
Alas, too repetitive. But the combos are very rewarding. And, the artwork is suprissed. Not to mention the very tight code.
