I think it'll add a bit more "firepower" to the battle.

I really like the idea of this collab! Looks like something i could get into. If spaces are available, I'd be up for making something. Here's a sample of mine, if necessary:

I have a question, how will this work in terms of characters doing close ranged attacks.

For example, if I want my character to run up and punch my opponent in the face, how much of that will I animate?

Will I animate him up to the point where he punches and then hand off the flash and have my opponent animate his character dodging/blocking?

If possible, i think you should consider making the collab a little bit like this flash. Kind of gives us more freedom in our animating, though may take some extra work in terms of scripting.

The idea of this collab is to battle each other and to surprise your opponent with your awesome attacks so it will be hard for your opponent to do something to stop it. If you decide to do a punch in the face you could animate that but just make a quick sketch of where your opponent should stand. You will need to send your .fla anyway after your attack so your opponent can make a defence and an attack. After your opponent did that you will receive the .fla with your attack, his defense and his attack on you.
If we do it like in your link the whole idea of this collab will end up like a rip off of that collaboration and will change the idea.
If you don't understand what I mean, please tell me xd
I have no idea if those english sentences were good or terribly wrong :P

Here a quick drawing of what I meant:

I like it! Do you have an idea for your main character?
If you do, please draw it and show it :P
After that I will decide putting you in or out.
(I do like that fire... I can't animate fire... :| )

PRELOADER
I tried making a Preloader but I failed so I just use the newgrounds one :P
I also started making the menu. It will be something like this but with more details and a nice background.

Animation Battle Main Menu

The short animation is made in 15 minutes so don't think your battle should be that short or that you can use stickfigures xd

Tell me what you think and give ideas! :)

The white ugly line at the top isn't what I wanted xd It just happened because of the dumping ground formations I guess...

Alright, nah I don't think you should solely base your project around one person no. :P but you could do a vote on it.

Anyways, good luck guys! =)

Alright well nevermind my concern I was just picturing it the wrong way I guess.

I'm having a total drawers block right now apparently. I just spent the last hour or so drawing any random characters I could but never settled on one I like.

I'll try again tomorrow night.

I like what I see but I am not sure if you can do flash animation.

I have flash CS5 and thats what I used to make all these animations if thats what your asking, I just converted them to GIF file format to make them more accessible. But I'm sure I could send you FLAs
