The animations in Banished Collaboration A were made for the 1st round of 3 of the NewGrounds Stick Showdown Competition in the Animation forum.
Round 1 - Professional Category : Eviltie, Oxob3000, ArmorStick, LuccasBode
Additional intro and outro animation by Eviltie

Our theme for round 1 is "Banished". A telekinetic man, a master of all nature and one whose force has no limits escape the mob that is chasing them out of their village.

Don't forget to check out our new "Review" section in the menu if you're a fan of the competition. You get to see who wins and why and maybe learn a thing or two if you're an aspiring animator. :)

I would also like to take a moment to express my gratitude to our friend. Over the past few years I've met many talented animators in this project. I can safely say he was one of the most dedicated and creative of them all.
***In memory of Luccas Bode***

EDIT: Thanks for the frontpage and daily feature! :)

I noticed a lot of you guys were wondering what happened to the purple character. The thing is the participants had to choose one of the 3 characters to animate. Nobody chose the purple one. The most common reason was that he was harder to animate.


Like a boss couldve use more realistic voices but hey gotta work with watcha got.

Fucking awesome, but...using 3D is cheating. D:

I must agree with djtooth, To say someone's force has no limit yet only show 2 or three different ways the nature and telekeneesis guy fight the others doesn't make it too fair. What happened to the shots of the red guy?

I'm sorry but I got to nock a half a star for that.

Not a bad collaboration, i dont see why some people are complaining so much. It's obvious you guys got talent and there's always gonna be things that need improvement. Voice acting was a bit forced, but I didn't find it annoying so people stop complaining already.

Personally I didn't see much problems with it, and I thoroughly enjoyed the display of different animation styles, although some things didn't flow well...like the 3-D sequence where the villagers were using guns whereas the in the other sequences everyone else was using bows, arrows and swords and other tools....try to keep it consistent. Also some of the blood spills were poorly animated in some instances, i don't think that blood flows out in flashes if you know what I mean. Also didn't see much action from the purple guy, try to balance the seen action from the main individuals out a bit.

Otherwise nice collab! Just remember where you slipped up and you'll be fine. Stuff like this is always a learning process and you're doing fine anyway. :)

Oh wow, is Luccas Bode like the 3rd NG animator to die in like the past month? That's so sad and so weird. These are just kids we're talking about. It ain't right for them to die.

I was gonna critique his animation saying you could see stars behind the dark side of the moon like you could see right through it. But I feel bad about critiquing him now.
