Animated Avatar Tutorial by a-k-u Animated Avatar Tutorial by a-k-u
:faint: lol. Well, this was fun XD

I was planning on doing this is Flash, but it wouldn't open for some dumb reason, so that failed.

Been meaning to do this for a while, but when *xOniHime asked me how I made my avatars, I offered this and finally got it done XD

Hope it helps you guys, be sure to link me to your fabtabulous creationisms :'D
I'd love to see!

If you'd like, it'd be cool if you could put a link to my tutorial in your comments, I'd really appreciate it! :tighthug: :hug:

Aku out~

It does for me :)
Go to window>animation or I think it may be window>timeline (renamed is CS5)
And if it looks different then in my tutorial, just look for the little button on the timeline/animation pane that looks like 3 little squares. Click it and it will change :)
