I grew up watching Hanna-Barbera cartoons like Scooby-Doo, The Flintstones, Yogi Bear, and the Jetsons. These silly cartoons were produced over a period of 30 years solidifying a technique called limited animation. See the Brainpop video to learn more.
STEP ONE: Running character
STEP TWO: background drawing
STEP THREE: fixing the background
STEP FOUR: Creating the animation
Second try-new idea for background:
Karaoke of Scooby-Doo Theme Song:
Fly like Mighty Mouse Might
I made a three-framed superhero in a flying pose. No need for moving parts, just flying cape and blowing hair. Then I made one cloud that I would duplicate and resize.
P. S. This animation would be fun to view as a hologram. See my post about it here and view the example below.
