And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Scooby-Doo". Well done to everybody who entered.
Our first topic winning selection this week is a rib-tickling Wacky-Scooby-Doo crossover by Jake.
Shaggy and Scoobs are up to their old tricks here, knowing just what not to say, before being chased by a terrifyingly transformed Wacky freak monster!
As well as such classic Scooby antics, the entry includes a special Birthday greeting for fellow creator Casjin.
We hope he had a great day!
Solving the mystery of why the Fred always wears an Ascot scarf, this beautifully drawn, Cartoon Network inspired Flipnote by CosmicGAZ answers this apparently over asked question with an outburst of vexatious rage from Fred himself.
Both perfectly timed and hilariously out of character, it took us completely by surprise, along with the rest of the Scooby gang who were stunned into absolute silence!
These fabulous OCs really look the part in their guises as the mystery solving Scooby gang, in this topic winning, villain reveal, animation by JoseManueF.
But who's the scoundrel being exposed?
“Ginkies!”.......It’s Isabelle the family dog!
Could Scooby have found his nemesis?
Shaggy’s crisis goes from weird to darn right crazy in this omnipotent character study recreation by ⒷIⒷⒷⒶ.
He’s certainly gonna need a Scooby snack to recover from that mystery!
This hilariously befuddling, narrative based animation by Meggo plays around with the classic lily-livered dialogue we love so much, as Shaggy and Scoobs discover yet another diabolical foe, this time seemingly frozen for millenia.
Flipnoter9 has created this wonderful Flipnote drawing of Velma, the cleverest crime solving member of the Scooby gang.
We were very impressed with the quality of line quality, hi-lights and composition used to bring her to life in sepia shades of red and brown.
A criminal un-masking goes awry down at Sudomemo corp. in this twist on the traditional Scooby style mystery by EmeraldKat.
"Zoinks! It’s a real ghost!"
Fred and Sudofox are in big trouble now!
This topic is all about animation that looks extremely realistic.
This would also include the surreal (Fantasy subjects made to look real).
The best way to achieve this is with observational techniques like shading, highlighting and shadowing to create a realistic lighting effect on and around your subject.
Perspective and movement could also be very important.
You Flipnotes could feature whatever you like, objects, people, places, structures, characters, or anything that takes your fancy.
Use Flipnote artistry, photo importing, high speed-play, and any other DSi skills you know of to make your animations look like they’re literally jumping off the page!
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 - Hyper-Realistic and the deadline for your entries is September the 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.
