Here's mine:
Btw, i followed a different tutorial that's like yours
And I did the color thing different.
I just have 1 question though. When you put the text in like an avatar, how do you make it so that the words stay there instead of disappearing and appearing?
This is what happened to me And I tried putting the text in first before animating, but it only let me animate 1 word
Thanks for the tutorial!

You have to save it frame by Frame. So if the text is 20 letter you would have to make 20 sep. and then use an animation program to animate it. At lease that is what i think.

How come you have to have that font?
I messed something up so I can't download fonts anymore :[
I was able to download one, Walt Disney Script.
