Our Favorite Flipnotes from last weeks Topic "Sudomemos 10th Birthday"

Glance and Gaze lead an all-star inclusive lineup of PC performers in this musical 10th Birthday “Hurrah” to Sudomemo created by CosmicGAZ.

Striking poses a plenty, the sing-a-long action switches from character to character in a continual lip-synched, lyrical animation that utterly blew us away!

Jake wishes Sudomemo a very special 10th Anniversary with this dazzling, action packed user-crossover MV featuring a host of Sudomemo friends and OCs,

To add to the merriment, Wacky also makes an appearance, but true to form, he can’t resist Photo-Bombing the party!

After the catching of a Birthday cake with a fantastical spin, the true recipient is none too pleased in this hilarious winning Flipnote by JMCU.

We found watching the animation frame by frame very rewarding here, as it reveals the ingenious multiple imagery techniques used to emphasize the movement.

It’s pixelation on the dance floor in this psychedelic, Sudomemo disco party MV created by [Will$ten].

An excellent technique, achievable in Flipnote Studio using the reduction and enlargement functions, pixel art was suggested to this creator while they attended our Birthday Bash celebration. (For full details of this, see the Flipnote description)

•♥Bunny♥• impressed us greatly with this tremendous animated draw of the Flipnote Fox at their 10th Birthday party.

From start to finish, the illustrative process, including the build up and adjustments of lines, color, shading, and framing are showcased perfectly stage by stage.

This elegant animation, created by Alice Lace stars the Flipnote Fox frolicking in 10 years of Sudomemo success.

Mixing together lively text, a wagging bushy tail, and a four legged run, both the action and the audio flows beautifully in a cycle with energy and zest.

The Flipnote Fox almost loses a hand during a Cake-Stuff of epic proportions in this glutenous Topic winning entry by Joshua.

As well as a huge candle blow-out, the cramming and swallowing actions are executed with cartoonish extremes that made us laugh with delight!

This marvelous animated OC puppy montage by PupptPichu expresses appreciation for ten years of Sudomemo and its supportive community.

We also loved reading the Flipnote description, which we’re sure is how a great many of us feel.

Having posted Flipnotes on Sudomemo from its very beginning, ◇Shard◇ celebrates with a ten year personal recap of their animations from over the years.

Such creative development is just wonderful to see.

A 3D character rotation of The Flipnote Fox is animated with consummate skill in this birthday song scored Topic winning Flipnote by kit.

We couldn’t help but sing the lyrics along with this one!

This Weeks Topic - "Palaces"

A palace is a large and impressive building that forms the official residence for the rulers of a nation.

They vary enormously in style and design, depending on the culture which built them.

Here are some examples of palaces from across the world:

Buckingham Palace (London)

The Forbidden City Palace Complex (China)

The Misore Palace (India)

Topkapi Palace (Istanbul)

Why not check them out on Google Images for visual inspiration.

Your Flipnotes could include any type of palace you like. Or why not create a palace of your own design!

Then bring your palaces to life with animated characters, action, drama, as well as perspective, movement, lighting, and all sorts of other effects.

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 - Palaces and the deadline for your entries is February 11th (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.
