The Brave Duckling

I could do with as many hits as possible at the moment, so please pass this on to friends who you think might like it.

As a tip for anyone who might be wondering how to get the ‘wobbly outline’ effect I’ve used in this animation, rather than drawing the whole thing twice simply add a new keyframe in the timeline of the object, select the lines you want to wobble then use Modify>Shape>Optimise… . Have a look to see how many curves it alters and adjust the optimisation to fit with the look you want. If you don’t like it youcan always Ctrl+Z back and try again.

  2. Hi Mata, the baby duckling link doesn’t seem to be working. Thought I’d let you know. Have a good one!


  3. Thanks Ryn, I’ve fixed it now 🙂

    Tom, I’m always happy to help with making people think you’re odd.

  4. Didn’t work for me when I got the email, but worked a little later when I checked the blog…… maybe it’d been fixed by then I suppose.
