A project for my digital design class, working with flash for the first time. We were instructed to make a thirteen second long movie that converted one shape seamlessly into another, so, lots of shape tweening basically. I took the good ol nerdy route and had some star wars fun ^^
(Right click image and make sure loop and play are checked for continuous loop or Download for continuous loop) (Theres no loading screen yet so let the first laggy rotation go, it will smooth out after)
Characters Name: General Grievous "From Star Wars" Date Started: September 2nd 2007 Date Completed: March 1st 2009 Time Spent: 2 Months Programs Used: Animation Master, Maya, Zbrush, Photoshop, After effects My Personal Comments: YAY! Its finally done and not a moment to soon.
First of all, I know what you're thinking.. "2007 - 2009!!" xD After I finished modeling him in A:M I wanted to learn and use maya. And it took me a while to get it and figure it out. I only really started working on him again January 3rd this year.
But what a year this has been so far. When I got maya in March last year, all I was doing was learning modeling. Thats all I ever did in animation. But in order to finish this character I had to learn more. So within the last month and a half I have learned: UV mapping Zbrush "making and exporting detail on the model" Rigging Lighting Rendering And a hell of alot of other small things
There are a few things I know I did wrong.. or could have done better with more weeks of trying to learn. (my main thing at this moment is that I cant get it to continously rotate.. but I'll work on that) But I think you all will agree I have waited to long.
This is the hardest model I have worked on and IMO, My best work. I am very proud and would love to hear what everyone has to say.
WAIT A MINUTE BEFORE YOU PLAY IT-- THERE'S NO LOADING SCREEN AND IT'S A 14 MB FILE!!!! IN FACT, YOU MIGHT AS WELL JUST DOWNLOAD IT. I'm sorry, I'll learn how to make loading screens as soon as I can!
-- oh, and turn up the volume!
Because I'm eating frosting straight out of the container tonight, I thought everyone else deserved a little treat, too.
Or, in this case, a big treat.
Yes, yes, we're skipping 104 for now... don't worry, we'll come back to it.
So, here, folks, is the story of Jet and Jalt. Take from it what you will; I will NOT be answering any questions you may have about the video because I want people to interpret it for themselves. And remember: in the world of artsy cinematography, little is chronological.
And, because 105 is clearly a large project and QUITE the special edition, I WON'T be uploading any new comics for at least a couple of weeks. Finals are coming up and I am swamped and it would kill me if I tried to make any more time for the 50last.
¡¡Un Jawa Sith!! Que sí que sí, que esos pequeños y monos ladrones de chatarra para la reventa del planeta Tatooine en el universo de Star Wars. Esos personajillos me encantaban, así que cogí uno y lo volví un Sith .
Another base-type thing for those who want to have a try animating a lightsaber fight. Or just a fight with any weapon in general, although this was aimed toward the Star Wars fans out there since there aren't enough animated bases, especially for that... If any XDD The Sith was based off of Darth Maul, reference to the double bladed lightsaber. Just 'cause I thought the two blades would look really cool in flash lol But you can change it if you like, I really had no set idea when I started. Again, if you'd like to use this, please feel free! Note me and I'll send you the .fla file. You'll need Adobe Flash CS4 to use it though, just to warn you. I'm going to be uploading the full version of this since there's more, but you may have to wait a while. Anyway, enjoy :3
I've hardly upload any of my animations on DA, mostly because of some copyright issues as i often uses commercial music and stuffs.
But isn't it weird if I'm an animator and there's no animation stuff over here to share?
Therefore I've edited out some of my older crappy Star Wars stuffs and compiled it into a short video. No background music, no voices. Just simple sound effects. And i assumed SW sound effects are free to use, since they encourages fanfic films and provided the sound effects.
Oh and if you are interested in viewing the complete version of the flash animations. Here are they...
