Well done to everyone who entered.
INK loves to create wonderful Flipnote pictures during Me-Time. And here’s one of them, an absolutely exquisite fantasy drawing of a mushroom character relaxing in some Me-Time himself.
We were fascinated to watch the animated development of the image from line drawing through to the finished, shaded and hi-lighted piece.
Such skills with the Flipnote tools! Wow!
Beginning with a cool random generator animation to decide which Me-Time outfit to wear, Bonnie078 shows us the favorite activities she enjoys in her personal day.
It looks very rewarding indeed.
A stick man indulges in some hyper-active Me-Time in this topic winning entry by わermorew.
From gymnastics and climbing the walls, to Minecraft, Discord, and even stubbing his toe, what an extraordinary day he has!
After a hearty bowl of cereal, LivzKat loves nothing more than settling into some satisfying Flipnote making on a Me-Time day off.
I know just the feeling!
This lovely piece of character animation by User showcases wiz-lines, multiple images, and great exaggerated movement, to encapsulate the very essence of “Me”, and hence Me-Time.
Very nicely done!
In this topic-winning speed-run of his daily life, RedDSi3950 manages to squeeze an entire day's activities into only six seconds.
Now that’s some super-fast Me-Time!
"Phew", we never thought he’d make it!!!
Crabs are crustaceans that are able to live both in water and on land.
Surrounded by a thick exoskeleton (Or shell), they have a single pair of pincers as well as eight other legs, which they use to scuttle about in a most distinctive way.
Your Flipnotes could be about crabs of any size, shape, or type.
Set them on a beach, in the ocean, or wherever else you like.
Animation Top-Tip: As crabs move around very fast, the action of their legs could be quite random, or even just a blur. This will leave you more time to focus on their pincers snapping open and closed.
So why not give this topic creature a go!
Just remember to keep your fingers away from its nipping claws!
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 Crab and the deadline for your entries is March the 19th (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.
