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.


F: is a stick figure
G: is on a black background
H: is awesome
I: is black
(FI ^ G) -> ~H

Not bad at all. Not much of an action flash, because they seemed to have an extreme reluctance to kill their pursuers. The third scene was cool, and I did enjoy watching that. The first scene wasn't all that great, but the one thing that kept bugging me were the mouth designs. You may want to work on that. Also, there was no given reason why the villagers were chasing the "freaks" throughout the forest, which seemed to have a lack of consistent plant species. There was little action, which made it more of a drama. Most of the time, it was them using their powers to evade the pursuers.Otherwise, the animation was fluid, the voice acting was OK, and the plot has been done, but nicely executed. Still room for improvement. Basically, Nice try, but please try again.

I'm glad you spotted their reluctance to kill. That was actually part of the characters' personality. Sorry you didn't like that though. Thanks for your review! :)

the voice acting is just annoying. Try talking naturally. it will sound much better.

The videos themselves were decent. but the awwwful voice acting just was so bad that I couldn't appreciate it.

nothing like 14 year old voice actors.. jesus christ that ruins an animation.
