Ok, so you may or may not know that I am a "Gamer Chick". I discovered MMORPGs (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) a few years ago. I started off in a game called Maplestory. Shortly thereafter, I started playing around in Photoshop, and I taught myself how to make animated "signatures" for online forums. I actually had a "business" making these little cinematic signatures for people to use. I'd create a signature for them in exchange for in-game currency. It wasn't before too long that I had more than I could handle...so I partnered up with a very talented animation artist named Trixie. She and I ran a "Siggy Shoppe" for a few years on a couple of forums. We were ALWAYS up to our eyeballs with requests. Here are a couple I made that are my favs: (btw, my in-game character is the cute li'l redhead, Rhyannyn).
I have since forsaken Maple Story for WoW (World of Warcraft). I still like to do animations of my WoW character...but it's MUCH more challenging since WoW is 3-D and Maple Story is only 2-D. Here is my first attempt at an animation with my character on Wow. Even though it doesn't look like much (5 seconds worth) but believe me, it took a LONG time to do this...TOO long.
