Right click -> Quality -> Low is pretty much essential here.

The last Rnava I ever animated. It was animated in Flash 8, and about half a year ago I upgraded to Adobe Flash and fixed some parts of the animation.
I have no idea why I would find it fun to animate very elaborate characters in such a great amount of detail.
Guess how many separate symbols this is made out of?
....
Haha. It's 37.
18 of them are in Rnava's head and mane. I built his head to be 3D-like and capable of talking, growling, snaeering etc. But it is actually just lots of 2D layers playing tricks on you.
The reason why I didn't end up using this model for a Flash movie is because 1) it's way too heavy and will jitter and slow down on slower computers and 2) I reckoned that if I can put so much time into building something like this in Flash, I could build better things in a 3D program. I started studying Maya but failed miserably and came crawling back to Flash begging her to take me back.

this is quite awesome. you really brought the character to life in this version, for sure. I do enjoy the 2 previous ones too, though. I can't animate for shit though so I remain easily impressed by animations. Bravo! :]
