An otherwise normal day for Super Mario results in tragic breaking news for the entire Mushroom Kingdom in this palace based, game twisting Topic winner by FlipTheory.
Mixing pixelation animation with the use of regular Flipnote tool creates the expanded Super Mario world just beautifully. This plays along to a sound track of music, voice acting, and mysterious ambients that lead skillfully to the story's reality grounding punch-line.
OCs Red and Sec fall foul of a tactical strike when they engage in a spot of palace breaking in this Topic winning Flipnote by RedDSi3950.
We very much enjoyed the look of the palace, both inside and out, which included a pillared frontage, a domed roof, and a star crest.
In this hilariously bizarre Topic entry by Asyraaff😃❗ a palace is improved, by replacing it with a giant head!
Such ingenious architecture, Now that’s using your noggin!
Starry treasure lies deep within the Sudo Palace!
But will a crack team of OC infiltrators be able to claim the elusive prize in this Persona 5 parody, pictorial Flipnote created by Ravencourt.
A cryptic message scroll from another kingdom becomes painfully clear in this winning palace siege comedy sketch by Shrek.
What a crushing victory!
The piano is a keyboard instrument that uses felted hammers, tuned strings, and the pressing of keys to produce music.
From a grand piano at a concert performance, to a pedal piano at home, they can be played brilliantly or terribly, as it can take years of practice to master the skill.
Your Flipnotes could feature any aspect of the piano, piano playing or keyboards, you like.
And if you can play the piano (Digitally or on the real instrument), then why not tickle the ivories yourself and score your Topic entry with a rendition all of your own.
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 - The Piano and the deadline for your entries is February 18th (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.
