Robot vs. Panther

I have been itching to do some stop motion the last few weeks and finally found a full free Saturday to play. I set up a nice clean table, some lights (which I guess I need even more), charged some batteries, and started taking photos. I shot about 222 pictures for this short. My biggest mistake was using too high of a resolution for my pictures, as they were kind of fat. I wanted to build in Flash, but it just wasn't happening, so I moved to Photoshop, which has an okay animation feature. Just a ton of layers, and eyeballs to click on and off. I learned lots and if there is a next time, I hope to have the lights less distracting (camera capturing issue) and smoother movement. Overall lots of fun. Now I am wiped out for some reason. :)
