as far as tutorials go, this was great, it had everything that was needed for it to be understandable, and then some. as for your manga, a could pointers, manga is comic books, not animated cartoons. The animated cartoons are called anime. and as far as understanding how to draw anime isnt exactly that simple, you need to understand the proportions of each part of a human body, how they interact with each other, and motion. but thats harder (in my opinion) to do that with a mouse or stylus, because its much harder to control what your doing. so do get down the basics to animating, i suggest starting with a piece of paper and a pencil. and dont just draw pictures of other peoples manga, look at people. afterall, that is what anime characters are supposedly representing (but some characters are questionable) study the way people move, the body language, the sense of balance they give. everything.
as for adobe, and swift 3D. im a begginer with photoshope. and i dont use swift 3D (but i do use 3D studio max, which seems very simular) and it was useful for adobe, and im gonna use that bluring technique (i didnt know that .png kept the transparent backround even while importing it into a flash document, finally i cna do some of the effects i wanna >_<) overall i believed a gained a decent quantam of knowledge from this flash, and hey! if you know more tricks still, i would be happy to learn about em'
I did mention the difference in the tutorial between Anime and Mange. Gues you missed it :P
anyways, im learning 3dmax too. Il add you to aim and msn. Maybe you can help me out once.
kinda boring, the graphics were lame (little floating balls of smoke?)
...fun at first... but the repeatative noises and the only one kind of gun..... kinda got obnoxious by level 8....... oh yea, for some reason it wouldnt reload in level 9 or 10 or soemthing
