Making Animations for Community Creations!

Hey everyone! You must have heard of this month’s PHB Community Creations. This time, I decided to create animations instead of the art that I usually create. The theme for this month was Stay Home. So, I created these:

Title: Poptropica Horror Animation

Title: Staying Home!

These were my first animations, and I agree that they weren’t the best. However, I’m happy that I created a decent animation that could fit in with this month’s theme!

The first animation shows a Poptropican waving, but through the wave, you can see his body vanishing with only his eyes left, which now glow red. This was the first one I’ve created, and I thought it looked pretty good, so why not submit it?

The second one, however, took a bit more work to complete. It consists of about 13 frames, while the other one only had 4. It shows a Poptropican who is trying to leave his house but then, guess who appears. Yeah, the deadly virus appears (a reference to COVID-19), and the Poptropican retreats back to his house. So stay safe, everyone! 🏠

I created this on FlipaClip (you can download it here for Android and here for iOS). It’s a pretty cool drawing app that allows you to animate your drawings! All you have to do is create a some drawings that look similar, but add a bit difference to the part where you want it animated. Once it is done, FlipaClip will put all the frames together, and you’ve made an animation! It’s a really great app, and if you’re interested in making your drawings move, this is the app for you!

So, what do you think? Suggestions and opinions are welcome in the comments section below. Stay tuned, and keep POPping on!

  1. Wow, they look great!! Only thing I would say is let the viewers see the end longer, which can usually be done by duplicating frames or just having the same picture show up (maybe 10 or so depending on how long you want it) of course, I’m not familiar with flip grid, so I’m not sure how it works. Nonetheless, I really love them, the virus one is my favourite!

    1. Thanks, Kashews. I did have the same pictures show up, but I had set it at about 13 or 14 fps (frames per second), so that it shows up like the drawing was actually animated. Otherwise, the pictures would not seem to animate, just one picture after the another, very slowly. And it’s great to hear that you liked them. I decided to make short ones for this month’s Community Creations, as these were my first animations. I’ll try to make longer ones for next month. πŸ˜€
