    Thank you very much for your uber brilliant walkcycle tutorials. They were very helpful too in my little 3d animation forays with poser ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thanks Dermot – I’ve been using Flash for over ten years and I still learnt stuff I didn’t know before from your tutorials!

    I’ve used your tutorial to help me get started producing a walk cycle in Synfig Studio – I’ve written about it on my blog.

    I can’t thank you enough for your generosity in making this great resource available to everyone.

  5. I just finished your Lynda.com course today (the character animation one). It was brilliant! I am in the midst of working on a character animation with a cat as the main character and now that I’ve seen your course, I am going to remove all of the black lines around the edges of him.

    Anyway, I do have a question for you. Where did you get the color swatches that are shown in your Flash interface in the course? I have searched the web and can’t find any downloadable Flash color palettes. I would love to use this instead of the Web 216 one that is standard with CS5.

    Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    Hi AA,
    While looking for some ideas for props, I came upon your wordpress blogsite.
    I really liked this tutorial – can see that you’ve been doing this for quite some time.
    When I have a bit more time, I will have a look at the others too.
