I submitted this for my midterm project for my color class yesterday. They loved it. I was allowed to use any medium I wanted as long as it depicted the interaction of a predetermined color scheme (in my case a tetrad of red, green, blue-violet and yellow-orange). I wanted to create a simple story that could be told in a short time frame with no dialogue. I suppose it took around 20 hours over the course of one week so I'm a little sleep deprived. Let me know if it was worth it.


Well shucks, guys. After frequenting this site for the past 11 years I've finally made the top 5. I want to thank everyone for the unanimously supportive feedback and for voting. Granted the cartoon I only had a week to work on makes Daily 4th place. Maybe I'm trying too hard. Anyway stay tuned. I have some projects already planned and/or in progress and I plan on getting that elusive Daily 1st. Just you wait.


Now featured on the front page? You guys are spoiling me. I'm stuck indoors because of the hurricane so I'll try to repay the favor by putting a dent in my next project.

I wish dueling was still legal, it would make life more interesting.

Dude loved the mustache and glove slap combo. Glove slaps are op.

BlackCaliber responds:

Thank you. I feel both are prerequisites for being a fancy gentleman.

I need to know who this song is by. Sound really familiar, but it's a great song and the music went reallu well with the animation. Good work, it looks great.

I put it in the credits. It's the White Stripes cover of an old song written in the 1950's by a guy named Corky Robbins. Glad you liked it!

Not bad, you had good posing and a strong simple feel throughout, your coloring suited your moods. There was some nice attention to detail, like the palm imprint, and the black sketchy transitions that did the piece lots of justice. The way this opening up gave me the impression this was a lot more ammature then it was thought, always try to start things off on a strong foot. But yet, pretty neat. Your hands were well drawn aswell. This was creative and unique, not enough of that around here :)

Alas constructive criticism! My next project (granted I'm not limited by the same time constraints) will be much more refined. Thank you though. Hands are such a challenge and I try so hard to get them right.
