Well... here... take a look at some of this stuff I've been working on.
Like I explained before... I'm nothing compared to what I've been seeing lately...
My first task for this new project of mine was to create a 3D, spinning Space Pyramid. And I did it... WITHOUT THE USE OF A 3D PROGRAM.
So yeah... it has flaws... but with using nothing but tweening, objects, and frame by frame tweaking... I think I did a good job.

(May move slowly... try changing the quality)
So the first thing you might be thinking is... "Big Deal." Well, I didn't have a 3d program of any kind, and wouldn't know how to use one anyway... so I did this with just geometry... I was kinda proud of it, but now I'm thinking... I really should get, and learn how to use Swift3D. But personally.... I don't like when there are obvious 3d objects in 2d animations. It just doesn't look right to me, and I think if people see that I did it by hand... maybe they'll give me a little more credit... even though there are flaws.
Let me know if you think I should keep creating hand-made 3d objects... or buy Swift3d. I want other people's opinions.
Up next... is a character I've worked very hard on. He is the one who lives within the space pyramid. Check it out.http://www.sevenhertz.net/Flash/Overlord.html
(Again, it may be slow)
So my problem here, and the reason I think I have to redo this... is I knew absolutely nothing about particle generators... or anything like that. So my water may look amatuerish... and that's NOT what I'm going for this time. I want to make something really amazing. I also need to redo his "arms", because when they move around... in the way I have them set up... it's extremely jerky. It's jerky enough as it is running at 12 FPS (something I'm going to try to fix) But I'm out of ideas on another way to do it.
I have other stuff on this project done... backgrounds... characters... but I'm going to redo ALL of that so I'm not even going to bother posting it. These are the 2 objects I really need input on.
