I might attempt to animate it, I'm not sure how good it'll be I'm not the best at animating, but I have been trying for a considerable amount of years. In fact, I just made this one: image
The biggest problem for me would be to find people who will voice the characters for free, although I wouldn't be completely against paying them, I just don't really have the money.
IDK. Have any of you ever thought of doing this?

No because Ive tried animating before and it takes a DAMNED long time haha, I would make little short gifs/clips though.

Well, I'm planning on making an AMV for my comic sometime in the future, after I figure out how to do animations...

the 6th chapter is actually going to be animated which is why the 4th chapter is hanging and the 5th chapter is a mini-chapter that's not out yet. There's probably going to be no voice acting tho since i hate lipsynching with a burning passion.

You do not know how many times I've contemplating making my series an animated cartoon. It would've been more of an animatic than actual animation, and I've even come up with a few plot points where animation would almost be necessary.

In short: Yes, yes I have.

Being able to make animations'd be fantastic. Realistically though, I don't have time for that. Animatics maybe though, I've already made one of those.

While I love animation as a medium, and plan on making stories using it in the future, I don't think my comic would translate that well to it. The story's not built for it, and it'd be an effort to rework it, though not impossible. I'd like to see the fight scenes animated, but that's about as far as my enthusiasm goes for now.

If you're willing to spend a couple weeks looking, you can find amateur voice actors on youtube with a simple "voice actors request" video. My only warning would be that they'll be younger people (kids-teens)with no experience, meaning they won't be very professional. Maybe have a set of instructions for submitting auditions. That way you can weed out the ones that don't follow the instructions to the letter, because in the long run, these people tend to be impossible to work with.

As long as you choose your VAs wisely, are willing to spend the time coordinating everyone, and don't have a TON of characters, it's more than possible.

Or you could make an audition thread on voice actors anonymous. You'll be more likely to find more reliable people with some experience there. Just be sure to follow the advice in the stickied threads!

When pacing my series I've always thought of it as an animated cartoon. But one thing at a time - gotta work on the comic and see how it goes

It looks like you used Flipnote Studio for the DSi. Obviously it's not the best thing to animate with, but it's fun for simple animations.

I sometimes think some scenes would actually look better as animation, and if I had the time I'd probably try it out...

I always wanted to turn my comics into animations. I want to go the traditional route, drawing everything by hand but I've never animated before, and don't know where to even start. Lack of time and energy has also made learning an impossible task.

Maybe someday.

I would LOOOOVE to Animate my Comic at some Point in the Future. This is only the First Run and it needs a lot of Improvement and Polishing up, though. I've also heard Animation is very hard and takes extreme patience. I also don't have a good Program for it yet. But I'm very interested in Learning Animation. I think it would Work Well with my Comic.

I've animated some my characters before actually! Not the cast of my comic, but for my animation final in 12th grade we made a sort of pilot episode for them as a class. It looks pretty bad but we learned a lot! Some of those characters will make their way into Frames eventually.

I'd love to do some animation for Frames, but because of how I make pages I'd probably do it as a sort of extra rather than a plot-thing. Though I could do the animation in pencil to keep it in line with the regular parts stylistically, I guess.

I do use that, it's the only animation program I have, it is quite useful, I make the animations in flipnote then put the frames into Sai and draw them that way.

When I draw something I usually ask myself "would I want to animate this?" If the answer is no then I remove details until the answer is maybe.
