And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Bingo". Well done to everybody who entered.
An extremely competitive Bingo game between Wacky and his sister is at a crucial point, in our first topic winning selection this week, by Jake.
Just one last number will do it……And there it is!
THAT’S A BINGO!
But Wacky’s victory is all but lost and the game totally abandoned, when moments later, in its place, a full-on Bingo ball fight has taken over.
Although, the odds look pretty even there! "Giggle"
There’s a distinct possibility of Bingo bribery going on in our next topic winning Flipnote by Emerald. And what’s more, it seems that the compere is in on the scam!
Along with this great premise and splendid voice acting, the action takes place in a beautifully created Bingo hall setting.
Not only is it extremely authentic looking, but with skillful redraws, every shot of it flickers with perfect animated boil.
Very nicely done!
In this fantastically animated entry by ∴•Daremo•∴ Bingo is not a game, but a cartoon puppy dog.
Inspired by the Disney Junior’s animated television show “Bluey”, Bingo’s family is introduced one after the next, each one in possession of some serious dance moves.
Based on true events, a blatant case of Bingo cheating is responded to with a hilarious torade of disbelief in this topic winner by Serif.
This cartoon Flip-Pic by Ibbit features an array of characterful Bingo balls, all waiting to be drawn.
They’re instantly recognizable, nicely composed, and a great idea for a topic illustration.
This week's topic is all about unusual movement.
This could be anything at all that moves in a weird, wonderful, and unexpected way;
Bending, stretching, rolling, sliding, slithering, vibrating, zig-zagging, spiraling, or any other type of movements you can think of.
If you apply your movements to things that shouldn’t move, or move in a very different way, you’ll get a surreal aspect to your animations.
Balloons that don’t float, and instead fall heavily to the ground.
A house that wobbles like a jelly.
Or a sturdy oak tree that squashes and bounces like rubber.
And here’s another fun idea.
How about creating zany character movements with legs, heads and arms going crazily all over the place.
That could be great fun, and why not use your OCs for this.
You could break all the laws of physics, or go full cartoon with extreme distortion and impossible actions.
If the movement looks silly, funny, mad-cap, bonkers, or just plain strange, it’s probably just perfect for this topic.
Let’s all come up with some extremely unusual movements, and have some unusual fun.
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 - Unusual Movement and the deadline for your entries is July 24th (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.
