My very first foray into animation was a pretty crude one. I was a Junior in high school and experimenting with Flash 4 (still owned by Macromedia at the time) for both art and web design. I actually took inspiration for my unique style from Humongous Entertainment games, particularly the Spy Fox series. In his first outing, poor Dippy is supposed to be getting shot by hunters (much like another famous duck), but looking back on it now, I think it just looks like he spontaneously combusts!
