I remember Runaway brain yeah that was such a cool cartoon! Ha ha I think the difference in mine is that it has far more blood and death and Fleetway sonic returns and the end of the world is at stake I think in runaway brain, the plot is Mickey was just trying to bum money to get a trip to hawaii for Minnie or something right? lol
Yup, he found a job at "Lobotomy" Lane (LOL) and entered the building the exorcist style! (Y'know, the famous poster of the Exorcist where the protagonist looks up to the building under the streetlamp? XD)
Hmmm well if you want to animate, learn the basics first like how to make a ball bounce or a person to walk or a hand to open and close...just basic movements. Once you got that you can start more complex things then start making animated stories. It takes a lot of work and practice to get good at it but if you keep doing it you get better and better hope that helps!
I loved cartoons and comics as I kid and when I found out you can actually do that for a JOB, I taught myself with books, programs, and classes :b My first real animation was when I was 14, I drew a 4 1/2 min cartoon on the computer called Subject 41 about a lizard character trying to escape a lab that tortures him with tests everyday. It was drawn on DOS an (old black and white pixels) drawing animation program. Then I got Flash and just kept practicing and getting better at drawing too. You can actually still watch Subject 41 on the internet here (but yeah remember its a really old cartoon now and it's graphic too haha Xb : [link]
