    That is a great tutorial to teach you basic, after that you should be able to do anything else on your own.

    that's pretty good, but how do i animate it. how do i make the stick so i can move it like that, can you make a video or something or a tutorial.
    and also, where do you get your guns. do you draw them?

    In a bit more detail, how to draw them and setting them into different layers so they dont get fudged up?

    Here we go.

    1. 1st, make a new layer, call it head, then make 6 more and call them
    arm
    gun
    arm
    body
    leg
    leg
    , you should have 7 layers altogether in that ^ order .

    2. Make a new folder call it stick 1 or what ever. place all the body parts and the gun layers into the folder in the right order. Open up the folder and in head layer, draw a circle with no line and with snap to objects on. this makes it a perfect round circle.

    3. In arm layer, draw an arm with size 10 line, arm should have 1 joint.(pivot if you like)

    4. in gun, copy+paste to stage your gun,

    5. draw another arm in arm layer below gun layer,

    6. body, one line,bend it slightly,

    7. leg should have either 1 or 2 pivots, depend if you are doing feet.

    8. dito

    Once you did all them right now you have a big mess. Start rearanging all your body parts to make a stick figure that looks like the one in the tutorial up there ^. Animate each seperate layer to what ever you wish. This is just basic guidlines on how to set up a stick figure. Sounds time consuming but it isnt
