The Ghost Pianist

A 3D piano duel between two ghost pianists that represents the legends Frederic Chopin and Ludwig Van Beethoven.
This project took 3 months of work.

The funny thing about this is that I animated the characters playing the exact keys for all three songs, but turned out that I wanted to focus more on the characters face than the piano keys. So I spent 2 weeks animating every key and barley showed it. Created in: 3D Studio Max

Music by: Kework Der Stepanian
Full version of the first song can be found at: tch?v=fpObI0ViwtI

Vivi anyone? ^^



Rated 5 / 5 stars

It's a really good piece of work!

It was a little short. I have worked with 3DS Max, and I am aware of the time and patience it takes to make these things, but I'm sure there would have been a more grand response if you had kept it going. Good plays more and faster, evil plays more and faster before the grand finale.

Though you may have been limited by the music that you chose, so you may not have been capable of making it fit like that. But either way I salute you for a great piece of animation!

Ah,the piano-a timeless instrument used to convey a vast array of emotions like any true instrument.Apparently,the same can be done for magic.That confrontation was a spectacle for both the eyes and ears.You gotta love the good one's finishing move,and to those who don't:lighten up.I'm sure if Vivi's creator(s) saw this,they would be both impressed with your work and honored their little guy influenced the stars.A hauntingly beautiful show with the internet as its stage.Bravo.

Wow this animation was crazy! I am recently playing FF9 again and i am currently on disc 2. This makes me love the game even more.

However, is really funny how it could also be Bad Veigar vs Good veigar. But we all know that Veigar is evil.....stop laughing. (LoL reference)


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Very nice animation, but why make Beethoven EVIL and chaotic?Well, more accurately destructive. You could have just made it a friendly competition. Beethoven doesn't have to be EVIL.

Vivi versus Black Walz (1 2 or 3) piano style,

I felt a tremendous FFIX nostalgia after watching this.

Thank you.
