Well done to everyone who entered.

A pair of wily stick-fighters continually surprise each other using some seriously sneaky tactics in this Topic winner by Matthew.

Animated with expressive character poses, and covert actions such as hiding, dashing, and peeping, the stealthy attacks occur, seemingly out of nowhere, hitting hard with classic stick fight devastation!

A sneaky ghost uses their floating ability to sail through a tunnel of deadly traps in this Topic winning Flipnote by FIotaga.

This richly animated action sequence opens with a fully shaded rotating view to set the tunnel scene, which is followed by a drama building mini-montage, before the ghost makes the daring attempt.

What a great escape!

A warrior in heavy armor affects sneakiness with a command in this satirical Topic winner by Potato.

Now that’s a silent knight!

We just loved the furtive looks acted out through this sneaking OC created by DrunkGecko.

Such great use of eye movement shows the character’s mood perfectly.

A sneaky troupe of dancing vegetables make evil plans in this photo imported Topic winner created by J64.

Could this be a vegetable plot!!!

This Weeks Topic - "Flamingos"

Flamingos are birds famous for their bright pink feathers, stilt-like legs, and S-shaped necks.

Often seen in large colonies, standing in water, they acquire their pink color from their diet of shrimp and algae that live in the shallow pools in which they feed. And although known mostly as wading birds, they can also take flight.

Your Flipnotes could focus on Flamingos in any way you like;

Their movement, their behavior, their environment, or whatever appeals to you most.

Top Tip: Why not use their watery environment to animate their reflections as well as the birds themselves.

Whatever you decide, let’s all be inspired by the colorful flamingo, and start making a Topic Flipnote today.

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 - Flamingos and the deadline for your entries is (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.
