Empire Strikes Back

To answer many "angry" people, no, this is not roto-scoped, this is drawn from working with fencers, memorizing the fight, and watching the movie and pausing it from a TV, this is why many of the movements are sloppy. Finally a submission that glorifies Star Wars, I'm sorry, but i'm tired of seeing fat kids try and fight with lightsabers in their backyards. The main thing to notice about this is the frame-by-frame animation. I wanted to try and do something that appeared "water color esc" but actually have to draw it by frames. I would encourage anyone taking on flash to learn how to take your time and draw frame-by-frame because I'm sick of flash animators who have a character float past the screen and claim they "animate". So I chose to animate something fun, STAR WARS, this is part 2, part 1 is missing in an old computer and part 3 isnt done. Anyway, Enjoy!

Excellent work on animating the epic battle (or at least a part of it) from The Empire Strikes Back,quality was solid as was the animation.


Well this was entertaining, im a fan of starwars stuff and this was kinda funny but also neat as you gave it a sorta style with the fighting and all, so nice job, hope to see more soon...

Hmmm well knowing me its always about the size...

Fun starwars thing but kinda neat, anyways nice flash keep it going...


Pretty good with quotes and sounds.

Royalknight, I have a DVD of The Empire Strikes Back. Vader's supposed to breathe quickly when he's fighting. The sabers blocked out a bit of the sound, but it was good. Please make it longer, but overall it was decent. Maybe you should make a parody.


That was awesome just next time make Vader's breathing slower
and the voices more clear


Hoe the flying fuck did you make so kick ass?! Do one for return of the jedi or revenge of the sith. Great film!
