This started out as a test to play around with an animation plugin and different rendering techniques. Modeled in Rhinoceros 3, animated with the Bongo plugin using Penguin and Flamingo plugins to do the 3 different styles of rendering. Then of course, Flash Pro 8 to bring it all together.

we never really saw the 'sketch' and the object wa

I like the concept of showing the evolution in drawing, but a shield is a bit of a boring thing. I mean, it'd be so much cooler if it was, say, a guy walking along who's getting finished whilst he's moving.

That's what I hoped it was.

The first few lines did look cool and suitably sketchy. I felt a lot of the circles and whatnot seemed a bit too rigid and precise though - not like a sketch at all.

When it started turning, that was kinda cool. I think my favourite part was the middle, when you were sorta showing a texture in the bg through the shield, as if it was being used as a window, or a mask in flash.

The whole thing is definitely a movie btw. The presence of a 'scene select' doesn't make it an interactive thing really.

It's a cool concept, but we never really saw the 'sketch' and the object was a bit bland.

There were some cool designs on the shield, but watching it grow, and watching the lines slowly drawn in... a bit 'meh'.

Hey, this reminded me of my first submition here on newgrounds. The same scenario, I had this thing - it's not a game nor a movie, but I didn't know what to do and submitted it as a game. Big mistake - it got a shitty score. I hope yours gets a good score because it's very good, man. I like it. Maybe you should make a tutorial showing people how you did that (if you do, submit it as a game :) Good job!

Why is this considered a game? It is cause you can click the shield icons? It looks like you have a very nice handle of graphics—I'd just like to see an actual game come out of it, you know?

TheJaredWilcurt responds:

thanks, I just added a "ps" statement to the commentary explaining that a moment ago. the shield was originally designed to be used in part of an rpg, along with another shield and several swords. I may end up colloborating with someone on here if they're making a decent rpg.
