Flip Boom: Love without a path

Tricks for Flip Boom By Ko Maruyama
I recently received a notice from Toonboom about their software being on sale for St. Valentine's Day. Is it that time already? Well, that got me to thinking about some other workflow tricks that can be used with FLIPBOOM. Here's just one.

Of course, I am using a Wacom tablet.  If you're considering drawing anything digitally, even if you're not going completely paperless, you need a Wacom tablet.  You can start with a small tablet, but professionals and serious hobbyists will want to look at the options that the Intuos 3 offers. (http://www.wacom.com)

This tutorial is for the benefit of students who are trying to learn Flipboom.  I've included a project file that you can follow along with.  If you want to share this file, you're free to do so - if you make a "blink" animation, let's see it!  You can post your work to Toon Boom's YouTube pages.
