Please be patient, it may take a while to load. I do not want feedback at this point.





This is my final project for one of my classes at uni. I decided to make an interactive project featuring some fantasy creatures set out like a field guide.
The main aim was to create a fun way for people to discover information about the creatures and perhaps inspire them to create their own creatures.

Overall Im happy with the result. If I had more time I would have added in some animations and developed the way you search through the paper a bit more.


I did use references for some of the poses, Ill try and list them below, as well as the paper stock I have used. If I have missed something, please let me know.. I didnt keep track of the stock uses as well as I should have ^^;



All creatures and Liadan belong to me, do not use without permission.
I used Adobe flash CS5, photoshop CS5 to create this.

Various poses reffed from Mark J Barret
Music by Kevin MacLeod

This is amazing <3 Do you know of any simpler flash tutorials to create something similar to this, but in form of a full book, father than a full project like this? :3 I.e just changing/flipping pages, as I haven't been able to find what I need just yet. Thanks in advance for your time! ^^

Sounds like youd just want a button, visible or invisible, to take you to the next page/frame. Thatd be actionscript lesson one :XD: Just do a search for 'AS3 buttons to change frames' and Im sure youll find what you need :)

It's wonderful. I've showed this to my friends from IT studies how our flash projects should look like (they definitely weren't). Your work is so mild and gentle. :)

oh I don't know. hmm ... if you want to make it bigger I'd make a map of Liadan (is Liadan the name of the place/dimension? if not I'm sorry) But make a big map of the world and first click on the part of the world you wnt to know about, then inside of the world part you could see the creatures. It's just an idea but maybe it would be good. :)

This is very cool. I found it yesterday and had it open loading, but the computer got turned off so today I had to go find it again because I wanted to check it out so badly. XD
I really love the art for everything, and the creatures themselves are gorgeous. I swear I want a little pet Runedog now.

Congratulations on the DD, and I hope you get a good grade on this! :D

Um, hello...
Well I really liked your flash and I hope you get a good grade on your project! Also, I was wondering if you would mind if I borrowed some of your creatures for a story I am writing. If you don't reply, I'll assume it's a 'no', but at least I could have said I tried!
Anyways, congratulations on this being a DD!:)

This is just so amazingly awesome and perfect! This is very creative and imaginative. I am still trying to process that you came up with all this! Would you mind if I wrote a story about these creatures? You, of course, would get full credit for the creatures, the names, and the land.

And the rest if your artwork is incredible. I hope you don mind me asking, but what did you use for your art, and how long does it normally take you to do it? Like all those horses, etc. Sorry, you don't have to tell me if you don't want to, most artists have their secrets.
