    Default Animating 2d graphics

    Hey there! I'm new in java, and I was wanting to know how exactly you'd go about animating 2d graphics in java.
    Example of what I'm looking for:
    I'd like to create a stick figure that faces towards the right when I press my right arrow key, and faces towards the left when I press my arrow key, and I'd like him to have a simple walking animation as he does so.

    This question may be answered already (If so I'm sorry for reposting it!) and it may be beyond my current skill level, but I'm curious so I thought I'd ask. Thanks!

    There are too many tutorials on java graphics to list. Help yourself to your favorite search engine.
    Look into AWT and Swing
