Onward, Ponty!

Share

I just wanted to push Animate to see if I could get that cinematic feel... Been watching a lot of French Connection, so it led me to this.


Was going to do two shots of moving cars..... then I actually made them move.... and then just put them together...

Sorry, it crosses the line between art and animation... Whoops.

Very cinematic

So yes this was very cinematic you really made it feel like it was I think when the car is turning you should have the wheels kick up some dirt or something that would be a nice effect and cool to see the animation on this flows very well anyways hope to see more soon

Some flying dirt and rocks on the turn

Looks amazing, really great work

I see you are shaking things up from your usual (or at least the usual that I have seen.) Cool! Cars in aqueducts are always fun.

I vaguely remember a scene from The French Connection where Gene Hackman is weaving through traffic like a madman whilst honking the horn incessantly; I think I'll re-watch it, why not.

WooleyWorld responds:

Yeah! I'm watching it as we speak! Good timing.
It's just got a style i like. I think next time I will try to capture that grit of the film that was that quality of film back in '71.

Great!

First of, SO MUCH RESPECT for actually being able to animate! I have some pet projects constantly dangling right under my belt that if I would just get off my duff and learn to animate, myself, I'd be getting them out in some sort of eventual time frame.

Secondly, a question. Onward, PONTY? I assume "Ponty" is short for "Pontiac"? That's all I can think of, and the final shots as the car zooms back toward the viewer, it looks like there should be a Pontiac logo on the front of the car.

Lastly, despite the fact that you never drive such a car during the game (sans mods, of course), and the scenes you spend in canals you're plowing through with a SPEEDER BOAT, I can't help but still think of HALF LIFE 2 when watching this animation. Bravo, even if an unintentionally popular computer game reference!

5 STARS

WooleyWorld responds:

I find that cars are surprisingly easier to draw than people, once you get past the tedious nature of them. But thank you for the compliment.
Ponty is the slang I use for a Pontiac, yes. And the logo is on the front of the car. It's a 1965 Pontiac Grand Prix. I took some liberties so that it was easier to animate, but the gist is there. I have not played Half Life 2, but it's on my list. : p

I appreciate the detailed message, my good man.
