Test animation using multiple tween functions & experimenting with masking.

Armature for the arm, motion tweening for the flora, exhale and the drip of the oil, shape tween for the smoke off the cigarette a zoom in from the camera layer.

Also used vector brushes in illustrator for complex and thick bushes and leaves saving countless hours

Dont smoke. Unless you dont have lungs

DaveTheZombie & Animate CC


After Finishing after effects I moved on to Peachpit & Learn ACAEP’s textbooks on Animate CC. Part of the lessons include digital armature creation and animation. The fruits of my labors have lead to this: Dave the Zombie.

Coming from After effects it is a strange and at times frustrating endeavor to figure out the nuances and processes associated with animate CC but its becoming a favorite of mine. Especially when it comes to interactivity and integration with other programs. Making my own applications and games seemed like a distance wish until I learned that it could be possible and accessible through animate.

Dave was created in Illustrator CC, imported and animated in Animate CC
