This was my submission for my Animation 3 class (last year). The class was mostly about character animation. Let me briefly run down what was required for the assignment:
- Run around the university and record the responses of those who answer the question(s).
- From those responses, create an animation that would depict the character as you would imagine it from the voice alone.
- The question that was asked was (not my choice by the way): If you could be a super hero, what would you call yourself and what powers would you have?
This was no doubt one of the best character designs I had ever created (bonus points to anyone who knows what inspired the character model). While the assignment was about character animation, it was more important to express what was said through facial features. Therefore, behold some of the best lip sync and eye brow shuffling I could pull out in a few days! Surprisingly I managed to walk away with pretty high marks.
I do realise that there is no pre-loader. When the animation was made it was designed to be easily placed alongside other animations (similar to the show 'Creature Comforts'). I was planning on adding a pre-loader before submitting it to Newgrounds but I couldn't find the original work files (plus I protected my file). It's a 2.6mb file that lasts no more than 15 seconds (had to be of very high quality), so bear with it. I apologise for the inconvenience.
Please feel free to leave comments. I'd love to hear what you all have to say about it.
