And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Exaggeration In Animation".

Well done to everyone who entered.

Pure Awesomeness finds visual form through exaggeration, when a colossal bear beast slashes a storm raging sky in this Topic winning Flipnote by MⒶZOkidox.

Bringing together multiple extremes of size, power and movement, through the use of animation techniques that perfectly demonstrate exaggeration, this mountain dwarfing behemoth left us wide eyed and open mouthed!


Vastly exaggerated speed is the subject of this dynamic, F.X. laden Topic winner by DIO.

Beginning with a hugely expressive, anticipatory wind-up the runner releases with a blur of energy and light, which is followed by a speeding close up that stretches and disrupts both the figure and the background under an almost impossible swiftness of movement.

Only then, to finally crash-out in a hilarious action-punchline, showing that such speeds come with a danger-factor way beyond control!


The exaggeration of a jump-scare, demon style sent us reeling out of our seats in this heart stopping Topic animation by Spaceyhead.

After a perfectly timed silhouette view, a flash-frame punctuates the sudden close-up, while unnerving ambient music surrounds a blood curdling shriek for the final frightful result.


The exaggerated animation principle of squash and stretch flows freely through Pokemon characters in this fabulous Topic entry by Coredabean.

A form of exaggeration in itself, this often imperceptible technique is demonstrated clearly, as one Pokemon after the next is played with like a rubber ball until ,finally Pikachu says enough’s enough with a stunning ZAP!


Experimenting with movements, objects, and expression via the format of button pushing, Drake Star reveals the exaggerated effects that cartoon sounds can produce in animation.

It really got us thinking about the creative associations we automatically accept when we enjoy our favorite medium.


A stick man takes a fight to an all new exaggerated level when he transforms his linear body into a hugely muscular one in this powerful Topic entry by Matthew.

His punch, now also massively exaggerated, delivers the victory blow with ease!


A wonderfully exaggerated use of color accompanies Max and Aaron on a spree of technologically challenged failures in this SpongeBob scored Topic winning entry by Jared


This Weeks Topic - "Sudomemos 10th Birthday"

Our beloved Sudomo was launched on January the 29th, 2014.

And now here we are, ten years on and still going strong!

So let’s all celebrate this joyful occasion by wishing Sudomemo a Very Happy 10th Birthday in the form of a Topic Flipnote.

Your entries could feature Sudomemo’s 10th Birthday in any way you like;

Its Flipnotes, its creators, its development and growth over the years.

Or why not make an animated Birthday card, or throw a big party, Flipnote style, with candles, presents, and cake!

The Birthday festivities are entirely up to you.

We really love the way you're all so creative with these topics and look forward to seeing the Flipnotes you create for them.

Make sure to post your entries to the Weekly Topic channel Weekly Topic - Sudomemo's 10th Birthday and the deadline for your entries is February the 14th (12pm EST / 4pm GMT).

We would also encourage you to add a description to your Flipnotes. This is your opportunity to explain any points of interest and specific details that we could feature in the topic winner reviews.

And don't forget, if you want a cool thumbnail picture on your Flipnote, whichever frame you save the Flipnote on, that will become the thumbnail. So choose your favorite frame for this, or add in a cool title page at the end, and save on that.

Keep on Flipnoting and the best of luck with your entries.
