Very Short Super Cycle!

Author Comments

This is a cycle I mades for University, we were asked to do something that looped, like a run or a dance and this is what I came up with - took me bloody ages.

All voices and animation by me

Sorry about the length, just wanted to show off improvement since my last submission. The next one will exceed a minute I promise........or do I?? Yes I do.

It was an exercise to show off my (then) newly acquired skills, more animations comin soon, cheers!


Dude, you've improved loads since your last films! I love the colours and the poses! As people have said the animation could use a bit of work. But it was still really fun to watch.

Also, it's a loop so people will have seen it at least 3 times and will have a lot more time to notice stuff and be harsh. If you can do something longer, people will love it.

I really wanna see more from you! Hurry up, damn it!


You know what you want of your animation, and that's all that matters! It's just that, while concentrating on the emotional side of flash, don't lose touch with its technical part.

The way that guy walked felt like you forgot about onion skin for a while... or were in one hell of a rush. Keep at it, though!

And wow, I started at it for so long that it actually ended. Just as I thought it was a loop... Extra points for surprise. :D

PapaLongLegs responds:

haha cheers, there goes my actionscripting capabilities! Yeah I have trouble with walk cycles, very simple but it gets me every time. Anyway thanks!

It's all about the emotion.

facial expressions
social situations
hand gestures (could use some more here)
body postures
vocal intonations.

After the 3rd time, I figured it was a loop.
Next time put in a punch line after the 3rd iteration, eh,

like he trips the blue guy or something, dig?

Then they both walk off scene and the lady gets killed.

See how you can integrate a punch line into the looop



Long road ahead

I totally agree with Dahakka.
Most submissions I saw around here on the last few days are quick, no quality animations.
But you spent some quality time doing this good animation.
The art is very good.
The voice work it's not so good, as the lenght, as you know.
Even so, the animation counts a lot, and this is a very good starting point.

PapaLongLegs responds:

Thanks a lot! Im glad you got something out of it. Yeah I just followed the brief we were given, sound wasn't necessary so it was more of an after thought
