It doesn’t look like they spent much time on the animation.

I think Leigh did a great job! Nice going Leigh!
The world can never get enough good cow gags!

Speaking as an animator and cartoonist, this illustrates a pet peeve of mine. The term “animation” should be reserved for “bringing a drawing to life”. The art of pivoting arms and legs via Flash needs a different term…”moving cartoons” maybe? Mootoons for short!

Randy, how about “graphic blandishment?” But even that may suggest more fluidity and motion than some flash animation. I agree there should be an alternative term for this type of animation.

Garey, I believe the term is “limited animation” … not to be confused with its complementary term “limited budget.”

Heck even the old “limited animation” cartoons were more fluid than some of these flash animations.

I say again…NICE JOB, Leigh!

You folks are pretty critical! Give the guy a break. Jeez. At least HE got his work involved in film work.

I can’t believe how you all sit around here and chop up this guy’s efforts like you do.

If you guys need to criticize bovine work and low budget projects, feel free to take ME to the slaughterhouse and leave Leigh alone…

After you totally destroy my effort and acting, which was done for fun, perhaps your thirst for cartoonist blood will have been satisfied.

Ha! I love it. I think the limited animation is delightful.

I never said I didn’t like the work, or wasn’t happy for Leigh’s involvement. I was just conjecturing on what a term for that type of flash animation would be.

Dan’s post reminds me of that video, “LEAVE BRITTANY ALONE!!! SOB!”
