EDIT 2: Over 2000 faves and 10 000 views? What the hell is wrong with you lovely, lovely people? I'm glad you all seem to enjoy this simple little thing I made for class. I'm going to try to reply to all your comments as soon as I can.

And to everyone who has left criticism, I appreciate that most of all. Seriously, if you think there's anything to improve on (and lord knows there's a lot, feel free to say so. This was my first time using non-hand drawn animation, so I'd love to know what I can do to improve. Much love :heart:

EDIT: Holy jeeze. A Daily Deviation, 800 faves and over 4000 views? Thank you people so, so, sososososo much :heart::heart:

Original Post:

Finally finished! I never ever, ever, ever, ever want to look at this son of a gun again. Ever.

Not going to get into the troubles I had with getting this done. Let's just say, it wasn't pretty.

Anyways, this is a Flash animation done for my 2D Animation class. The purpose is to take a fictional character, form them with the letters of their names, then create an animated scene.

It's not perfect (there are so many mistakes actually, it hurts), but it's done. Thank goodness.

Enjoy! :heart:

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-04-09
Flash: Calvin and Hobbes by ~chronosylum CATEGORY: Flash and Film This is amazing! The letters that spell "Calvin and Hobbes" turn into parts of the drawing of the characters until the full character is drawn. Very well done. ( Suggested by Jace-Z and Featured by WDWParksGal )

...I have never seen Calvin and Hobbes recreated so artistically and down to earth...if you can call it that. Calvin seems to like to go up...And I would have gotten my entire collection of CaH signed if Bill Watterson wouldn't have died before i found out about his works.

What an amazing piece of artwork. Calvin and Hobbes are my all time favorite comic characters and find them animated in such a clever and fun way is such a delight.
As I sat and watched this, I kept thinking how much time and effort you must have spent to find just the right letters to represent the various pen strokes that these characters are made with.
Awesome job.

very well done and imaginative... loved the comic series, too bad bill watterson hung it up.. he said that if he continued it, it could've just gotten worse instead of better... and i am inclined to agree with him... anyways, great job and congrats :D
