Testing a new technique for multi-limbs I dub "Integrated Limbs." Animation is Lumpy suturing a patient.

A hilarious RP with :iconsomedumbdeviant: yesterday about Trauma Center just somehow turned on the light on me :D So while I'm working on the OC HTF Olympics, I decided to start on a side project that features the Main HTF characters on a busy hospital day, Starring Lumpy as Doctor Stiles and Cuddles as unfortunate patient :)

You know? Credit for the story goes to :iconsomedumbdeviant:, really! She made the accidental RP very interesting as well as giving a lot of laughs :XD:

My animation style began to also become HEAVILY influenced by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic here, especially after learning a lot of tricks and tips from replaying and replaying again, some interesting parts on the animation. Because of MLP, I really push myself to make future animations smoother than ever before :D

The aforementioned technique: Integrated Limbs, applies to complex characters like Lumpy. Basically, his arm is one single graphic symbol that intergrates all the elements of his arm. While the main graphic symbol animates, the children (the inside of the graphic) animates at the same time, making it somewhat complex but much more smoother and rewarding :D

In this link [link] , is also a .FLA file for people who wish to see how I did this. Its in Macromedia-Flash 8 Format so I guess everybody with flash will be able to sneak a peek into it :D

Doing this while listening to Rosalia's Petals: [link]

Oh, and also [link] (Judgment Day)
Makes you want to operate on whatever epic thing in front of you :XD:

O_o Very nice and smooth, as usual =p, but its quite odd that the lines in the normal HTF characters are in fills while Lumpy's one is still in lines. Looks like he has a new patient, I guess the boss failed to see the result of Cuddle's operation :XD:

For Lumpy, I figured out that it would be a bit difficult to manipulate parts of his body when needed (like a new symbol or such?), so I decided to stick with lines for him to ease manipulation ^^; I'll start to go on fills though after all of his body parts are settled (he's a bit difficult to develop)

I decided to add a prologue to the operation, and that is operating on Handy's arms =P After that, then the story began on that fateful Cuddles operation :XD:
You know, I really have to credit you for initiating that (absurdly hilarious) accidental RP over there :D After all, without that this cannot came into form ^^;
