And now, here are the winning Flipnotes from last week's topic "Hyper-Realistic". Well done to everybody who entered.
Our first winning selection this week, by matthieu is an astonishing hyper-realistic jet-pack flight through night time Brooklyn.
Created using only the lights of the building’s windows, the city is seen in incredible detail, with amazing perspective. And as the dizzying journey concludes, we enter a tower block apartment.
But what do we discover there?
Watch closely to find out!
The OCs of JoseManueF have really taken Hyper Realistic drawing to heart, each one producing an exquisitely detailed picture of their favorite cartoon or video game character.
Created in both large and reduced size, they range from Super-Mario and Link, to the Lasagna loving Garfield.
What an exceptional exhibition of in-Flipnote art!
Utilizing Flipnote drawing and shading tools, SilyElixir has made this hyper-realistic animation involving finger drumming, tongue clicking, and a skull reveal.
It’s both shadowy and mysterious!
This eerie topic winning entry, entitled “When Surrealism goes too far”, by kamacurse features both drawn characters and an impressive collection of distorted photographs mixed together for an outlandish Flipnote experience.
Those of a nervous disposition beware!
A ball seems to literally bounce off the page in this hyper-realistic topic winning entry by blipsoid.
The sphere shading and drop shadow work very well to create the three dimensional effect, and sell the idea convincingly.
We were very impressed with the creative shading techniques employed in this animated drawing of a tired eye, by Lovingツ.
Also, the texture and quality of the line gives the subject a sense of the surreal!
This topic would include anything to do with fashions and trends both current and old;
Clothes, hair styles, designer accessories, along with the entire fashion industry, and anything else you can think of that’s trendy and cool.
According to the current vibes, bubblegum pink, metallic jackets, bedazzled logos, and ath-leisure are the latest thing!
But feel free to use the fashions from yesteryear, like flared pants, chunky trainers, and mullet and mo-hawk hairstyles for inspiration in your entries.
From a Catwalk, or a mannequin, to an outrageously expensive handbag, what does fashion say to you?
Why not tell us in the form of a Flipnote, and start making a fashion statement 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 - Fashion and the deadline for your entries is September 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.
