And here's the first animated short I've ever... Is it long enough to be considered a short? anyway, it's mine, and I've done it, though never really completed because... I honestly made it up as I went along and had no idea where to go from the skateboard part!
The freeze-frame of Hamlet flying towards the worm was a complete accident where I just kept merging duplicate frames in Jasc Animation Shop, without realising it was adding up the frame rate everytime, so in the end I had this one frame with such a low framerate, that it stays on-screen for a full second! I'm just as shocked as you are that I even knew how to operate a computer! Check out the horrible display of violence in the background as that dog just stone-cold shoots a cat. I've got no idea what that was about after all these years, but it's there, for your viewing pleasure.
These days I'd probably draw a worm that didn't just look like a weird pink version of the lizard, maybe to give him a face based more on a real worm, with a round mouth at the tip, and maybe even no eyes! Or perhaps I can keep the schnoz, but just make it look more unique and flabby, maybe some dot eyes at most? The world is full of possibilities.
