StopMotion Animation Test

Author Comments

I always wanted to contribute animation projects of my own on Newgrounds since I only voice-act other animator's productions. However, Flash on a tablet is too much for this monkey to handle, so I decided to go for a more ol' fashion genre of animation, and thats breaking out my childhood toys in the garage... Stop-Motion!

Now I know the style isn't really fit for Newgrounds, however! It is an animation nonetheless, no matter how childish this may seem.

Unfortunately I have recorded this using an IOS app, but pfft whatever right?
This is purely a test/practice on doing key movements for the figures. Waste of space, but a piece of cake for Newground's gigantic data's lake.

(Constructive Criticism Needed!) :d

I think it has a lot of potential, especially since legos are so flexible when it comes to set design. My only concern would be if you wanted to make a character talk you would need to make something to go over the lego guys face, or you could animate a moving mouth. It'll be fun to see your first actual stopmotion short though

Good job for an animation test. The camera is a bit shaky bit it was not a major problem. Now all you need is a complete plot and you are golden.

Thank you so much Kitsune! I'll make something to hold the camera solid.

this is good, but just to let you know that a lot of people get annoyed at people who submit tests on newgrounds

OldManCricky responds:

Thanks FireFly! And yes, I know this is an unnecessary bad medicine. Fortunately, no more tests after this! The next upload will be a legit film, from here on out.

The sound editing was nice, as was the video. The one problem I could see was that walking was just a bit stiff.

OldManCricky responds:

Thanks Joker! And you are quite right, I do need to smoothen out the walking animations, I'll practice with it for a while till I'm confident enough to start working on an actual film.
