WHAT I didn’t record the audio laaaame… at least you didn’t have to hear my tired voice. Haha.

Alright well here’s what I was saying:
-It’s easier to put parts of Telly on different layers to more easily manipulate him later.
-DON’T use perfect circles. I bent mine a little, then tried to form the circle again. This will create a more hand drawn look.
-Clean up UP UNTIL THE POINT you see in the video, before the fills are added. So don’t draw the upper arms and the neck, those will be filled in later with the brush tool.

  1. Open Adobe Media Encoder.
  2. Drag or Add File onto Adobe Media Encoder.
  3. Change “Format” to “FLV | F4V

  1. Drag file into Adobe Flash (Or: File > Import to Stage). A window will open.

3. Trace

  1. Lock the video layer
  2. Add a new layer
  3. Use the rectangle tool or pencil tool with a tablet to trace on the new layer
  4. Repeat for every NEW drawing

Tracing tips:

  • Don’t forget to add a keyframe for every new drawing
  • Adjust the lines accordingly
  • It doesn’t have to be 100% accurate
  • Use as few points as possible
  • Make sure all the shapes are closed
  • Use the model sheets and “How to Draw Telly” for reference.
  • Fix proportions

Make sure the Flash file is playing at 24 fps.

To change the FPS:

  1. Click on the empty stage and/or nothingness.
  2. Open the Properties window
  3. Change the FPS to 24.
