First of all, this contains sticks, don't watch it if you don't like sticks etc.

This is my entry for round one of the RHG tournament at fluidanims. I was fighting oxob3000, his character has some sort of chargeable electric powerfist, my character has a glaive and regenerating powers + transforming into fog.

Right, so there are areas I neglected and refurbished backgrounds in this, but overall I'm happy that I managed to eek out this animation while juggling final exams and graduating in the process.

Wow

For a stick animation to do well it has to be pretty epic this definitely fits into the epic category.

it was elegant. the music made everything look and feel so clean! you make stick figures proud :D i would, however have some sound effects for the fight, then have the fight muted at the part when they both fall. but that's just me :3

Different from what I've seen in past RHG's

The animation was clean, just not as fast paced as what I've seen in past RHG battles. However yours in one of few that has a well planned and well drawn environment, some RHG's have had plain white screens for the battle.
The music lasted the duration and seemed to fit. But, there was no combat audio such as clashing metal or grinding stone.
Storyline really wasn't there; jumping into the middle of combat can really go for or against an animation, depending on how it's done. No set up as to how the battle began takes away from the overall for me personally.

Awesome

I really like the slow pacing of the fight, it almost seems like I'm watching two humans battle. They've both been fighting for a long time and are exhausted, but they are still throwing punches. It really adds a great feel to the fight. Also, you said Oxob has a video of him battling your character, but I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Oxob's battle is up at fluidanims, you can check it out there.

I recognise this music

Especially the credits, it's an arrange from Touhou.

Considering it's sticks, pretty good. Though oxob3000's character was a fool. If the enemy regenerates, rip them apart until they become nothing.

Anyways, yeah, it's not like the fancy kung fu I see from stick figures, it's more cinematic this time, and I think that's a refreshing change.

Lost some points because the fight itself was actually a bit one-sided. Considering your character had regenerating powers that is, the other guy should've realised that upon seeing him re-attach his arm, and thus begin to relentlessly rip him apart as much as possible, not settle for fisting through the chest and leaving their body limp and lifeless.

But that's just me with battle logic...


Godmouth responds:

Ah yeah I can completely agree with that, should've thought more about the choreography.
