You've definitely found something you're good at with the animations!  How long, just roughly, does it take from you getting the idea to posting it up here please?  Are they drawn pixel by pixel too?  Which programme do you use to make them?

I usually plan well in advance the projects i'm going to undertake, the length of time it takes depends on how long the audio clips I animate to are,
for example, a 1 minute piece of audio could take between 2 - 3 weeks, I use a combination of frame by frame and tween animation, I use Adobe flash cs6,

thank you for you kind words, i'm just finding it difficult to grow my youtube channel, it bums me out some times, I put in so much effort and it feel like i'm not getting anywhere, Every animation I do I try to push my skill and try to add something new, I just have to keep on trucking and maybe i'll get somewhere  :(

This is by no means a quick solution, but do you have a website that you put all your animations on?  Ideally with your own domain so that it's ranked higher in search engines but it's a great way to get your talent out there!

I've got a link on my homepage about how to create a basic webpage for free so that might be the next step for you?  It takes maybe an hour to get the basics of a subdomain and hosting sorted on Bravenet and I think the more frequently you update the index page and get those meta-tags chosen well, the easier you are to find by Jo Public.

Domain names and hosting cost you money but they are sooo worth it and it looks more professional too.  It's better to be able to remember "jo-public.com" rather than "my_subdomain.freehost.com/?457934/#RaNdomcharActers/m0reCharacters" right?  lol

Adobe flash cs6 is one of the best you can use but that's the problem it takes time to promote anything including your channel.

I know enough about websites to get myself online but my hubby is a web developer by trade and I can put you in touch with him for some advice if you want me to?  He knows his onions 'cos within a few months of creating a site for someone from scratch, she had her first sale after the customer found her site in Google.  She was over the moon and it was all purely because of what Steve did.

He can build your site and support it for you for a year for a really good price if you want?  I'll PM Pip now to see if she approves of his URL and if she does, I'll try and remember to put it here for you!

Pip's approved the site so the URL is http://dohsoft.co.uk/ - quotes available on request and his brother can do the graphics for an additional price too!

You can start by putting it in your email sig and on forums and stuff like that (click on the globe on my profile, here on the forum, to get to my navigation page for example).  If you've got Facebook or Twitter you can add the link to your profile and Steve can help you with getting into search engines like Google and Bing.  Steve's contact details are on his site. 

I know nothing about how to get listed on search engines except that you need to regularly update your index page to stay listed in them.  Steve's definitely the man to ask about things like that!

Lookin' good.

The yellowy cream thing behind the character though, is that a cot or radiator please?

Keep going, you've got a real talent!
