DS Animanatee is fun!

There are many awesome coders out there programming stuff for the Nintendo DS.
I mentioned the amazing painting tool "Colors" earlier.
I recently stumbled upon an animation software called "Animanatee". It's simple, superfast and very user friendly. It supports even multiple undo and one onionskin layer. Perfect for straight forward animation in the subway. ^^
There is another animation software called "FlickBook" but I didn't like the user interface. It was a bit too complicated but it has more functions though.
Anyways both have even an avi file exporter! How cool is that!? Here is a lil' walkcycle I animated with animanatee. If you own a DS....Animanatee is a must have! ^^v

First painting with Cintiq 12WX

I just couldn't resist when I saw the new wacom Cintiq 12WX. The board was delivered today...and wow!!! I already fell in love with this piece. The size is just perfect and the painting feel is awesome. I tried the older cintiq models a couple of times but I never had a chance to get used to them. After doodling around about an hour it actually felt like drawing on paper...what a fantastic tool!

So here is my first painting on my brand-new 12WX ^^v
