hello i am a begginer in C++ and i am trying to work on a game named dragon lands. i was
wondering can someone make up an animation in C++ with a Dragon flying over the lands. and
it flys over a castle then old english font appears saying DRAGON LANDS. if you can do this
i will appreciate that.

You should be a little more precise. What kind of game will it be? A FPS or a RSG? or a puzzler?
Further more I don't think that you want the animation in C++?
C++ is a programming language and not an animation language (unless you want realtime anims).

You should get yourself an animation in fli or avi and then write or get some c++ sourcecode to play a fli or an avi file.

For getting the animation itself: It's damn hard to get a good artist. So you might as well do it yourself. (IMHO)
