A while ago I dismissed Toon Boom Harmony as a rip-off because I didn't think you could mess with opacity and that there was no x-sheet and you couldn't create individual scenes in one project. But I discovered how to mess with opacity.. and how to find other effects.
I've also been using Toon Boom Studio this whole time since there was a deal on it some time back, and was really happy with how it managed strokes and is overall designed more for animation more than Flash CS6 was . But it does tend to lag for no real reason, and I just tried making something really quick in Harmony Essentials and what you see is the result of practically 20 seconds of drawing as soon as I figured out how to hop from one frame to another (it's the < and > keys, it used to be a and s before). They're made by the same people, so it shouldn't take too long to get familiar with.
I also recently got an opportunity for work in editing, but I'll have to use Avid, so I'm becoming familiar with that. Harmony, Avid, and my Rotoscope project on the side, as you can see.
Ironically, Sonic Colors on the other hand, is a really good game.
If you haven't checked out my recent video, the NextMe app pricing video, it's on the motion graphics page. It's got a more professional feel, being cleaner and less 'cartoony' then my other stuff. It actually comes off as pretty soothing.
My Sonic backpack was from a friend. T'was a good gift :)
