arrow_back Add More Dancers (Part 1 of 2)

Transcript

In this add-on, you'll learn how to add another sprite to your dance animation and how to draw your own panda sprite.

To add a sprite from the Scratch library to your project, click choose new sprite from library.

You'll notice that your code blocks look like they've disappeared.

That's because each sprite has its own code that controls its actions.

Click on your first sprite to view its code.

Since the second sprite also needs to dance, it needs the same code blocks as the original sprite.

To copy from one sprite to another, drag the stack on top of the new sprite.

Now, the new sprite also has the code to make it dance.

You can now go to the Costumes tab to animate your new sprite however you like.

To draw your own sprite, instead of using one from the library, click paint new sprite.

It's possible to make all kinds of sprites by using the simple tools available to you.

For example, this panda was drawn mostly using the ellipse tool.

You can now draw and animate any sprite you like.

If you want to learn how to draw this panda, watch part two of this add-on.

Now it's your turn.

Add another dancer to your animation, either from the Scratch library or by drawing your own.
