Checkmate

Share Collapse

Yeah, it's one of those videos :P


Video based on one of my drawings: Stalemate.

I decided to change the result to a checkmate in the video, from what I understand this is the "Anastasia Checkmate" (I think it's funny.

As always this is more of a sound editing practice, I hope the animation will also improve in time.

Video issues that I'm aware:

The shadows, yes the shadows are wrong and/or missing, this is what happens when you use 4 different software to make a video.

I was thinking of adding the airship some smoke exhaust, but I forgot and I don't think it would have added anything

The character animation has some hiccups here and there, this can only be improved in time


Audio issues:

I don't know if the audio levels are correct. In this video I mostly practiced with audio pan-ing (I noticed I can create 5.1 audio tracks but I'm not going to use them yet)

I don't know I I I should've added some audio when the camera was pointing at the chess board when she go checkmate ( I was thing of an "cartoon-ish" sound effect but I don't think it would have worked)


Thanks for watching/listening, and please let me know if you noticed anything out of the ordinary.

Yup :D the model got corrupted at some point... took me a while to fix it XD

That's....Actually quite cool!
A little weird....But cool.
