Thanks everyone who came out to PAX! I was surprised by the amount of NG folks who came out this year. Besides familiar faces like Egoraptor, RubberNinja, Glaiel-Gamer, StarOgre and MoriChax, I got to meet people like Sakupen, jouste, bigbadron, GoshaDole, PrettyMuchBryce, Xerus, Rig, Murudai, merlin and fluffkomix!
My flight home was scheduled for Sunday but got cancelled due to the hurricane. I was stuck in Seattle until Tuesday and had a great time watching Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Attack the Block to kill time. I don't get out much nowadays.
I brought back one good piece of swag from PAX; a latex clown mask that was given to anyone who played the new Twisted Metal. Instead of tossing it in a mystery box, we're gonna have a quick competition!
Objective: Animate a clown dying. Be as creative and comical as possible while showing off your frame by frame skills.
Submission Process: Upload your animation to dump and post a link right here in this thread. You can make it an official Portal entry if you think it stacks up.
Deadline: Friday, September 9th at 1pm EST. We'll watch all the entries and pick a winner during a live broadcast that afternoon.
The winner gets the mask and can wear it for Halloween! I would post a better picture but I don't want to take it out of its packaging:
