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!

yeah rotoscoped

Even though I am ignorant. i believe this flash along and the loveable sloppy but neat fake fbf graphics was very unoringal. There could have been jokes added or luke says fuck this I want to be a sith lord etc.

Great, good rotoscoping.

I like this. A great reproduction of the saber fight between Vader and Luke. It was all exactly like Empire. There's nothing wrong with that, but one thing bothers me...

To quote you from the authors comments you "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" "

You don't actually mention that it was rotoscoped. That would be harsh talk coming from a professional animator. Coming from a keen amatuer, it's just plain stupid.

The lightsaber effects were awesome.



rotoscoped?

I have a feeling you drew over the actual frames of the movie. That's fine, but you definately should have finished the scene. I thought it was really interesting to watch.

I agree about the rotoscoping.

You rotoscoped this and then told people they should learn how to draw?

There is nothing wrong with rotoscoping but there is with pretending you drew a frame per frame animation off of the movie. You know people besides you have and have seen that movie?

Anyway I am giving it a 5 because it deserves it, just remember, don't fake the funk.

what is this rotoscoped straight from the moive?

...while it does look great...I cant help but feel that this is just rotoscoped...dont get me wrong, going frame by frame in still very tedius and difficult...perhaps you can make things longer, if you just draw them yourself...they you wont be so tied down to the actual events that happen in the movie...
