Hello: magnanimous citizens of Newgrounds:
Here's my animated submission for NATA'14 FINAL ROUND.

The theme this time was to "Animate in the Style of your Opponent", in this case; animator StejkRobot; someone you may already know for his works through the tournament.

So; now you'll watch an animation introducing a lot of less-usual things in consideration to any work I've done before in (hopefully) plenty of ways.

If you've seen some of my works before; maybe you'll be able to point them out through the short.

NOW, with that said; sit back and ENJOY!
------
I think I have A LOT to say about the process; so once the tournament is over I'll take some bonus time to elaborate some more on the making of this final animated short.

Maybe it's a bit hard to make a propper comparison out of context, but the whole style-adaptation was based on "things I haven't done at all in animation" that my opponent does a lot on his works.

Hoping that you already watched the animation: here's a small list of things I tried to adapt from the latest StejkRobot's works in this short:

-'Heavier' action sequences (chases, fights...); with a dynamic use of camera every once in a while.
-Avoiding using too many "squiggly lines" (contrary to most of my work!), involving more emphasis on sharper lines for character poses and cleaner transissions.
-HUMAN protagonists with long necks and big ears; showing a big emphasis on their gestures and expressions.

And of course, there was one 'theme' we had in common, a theme I wanted to keep exploring in animation:
ROBOTS; which was the main motivation to begin the process of making this short animation.

Nice big animation here. Very well-done, this really looks top-notch. I think it was a little too long/slow, or perhaps lacked something immediately gripping to keep the viewer's interest. For instance, the pause before the robot crumples is a little excessive. Other than that really great job.

Room for improvement...
- Needs more short 3-4 frame loops to show a dynamic environment
- Use less symmetry
- Color outside the lines a little more, reducing brush smoothing isn't enough to imitate your opponent's style


ButzboPrud responds:

Yeah I agree with plenty of things; although because of deadlines there's always tons of room for improvement; I'm still glad this got to a higher level of production.

Thanks for dropping by!
