Oh god... @_@ This is probably the best video I ever made and I forgot to submit it here. Shame on me.
This took me so long. XD *Kirschenwasser made the lipsync for Sniper and translated the lyrics for me Everything else by me... Conversation (without the video here [link] ) made with Adobe Auditione Video made with Adobe Premiere Pro Art with Adobe Photoshop
I was just going to draw a nice cute little girly dancing. But then...hell I thought this would be hilarious. Though you can;t even tell its meant to be Voldy. And you wouldn't know if it wasn't for the name
But this is my first animation ever. So please don't mind the roughness of it. It only took a few hours, as you can probably tell . So no nasty comments please
I just realised that already made a one!...And I have to say theres bares a better resemblance to our favourite snakester than mine does go see it :- [link]
Yet another Laughing Man logo. I know what you're thinking, I'm just another “copy-cat” but hear me out. I know that lots of people have done something like this as fanart already (just do a search on Laughing Man) but trust me mine is different! First of all mine is animated and most others are static. The other animated ones that I have found rotate in the wrong direction or at a poor frame rate. Another difference is that mine is darker than almost every other one. That is because most other people use a different screenshot as a reference. I'll show you what I mean. This link shows the reference that most people use and the one I used: [link]
If you look closely you can see that the word that is covered by the cap is partially repeated. That is what makes it difficult to animate. I can't just have one sentence rotate and loop that animation. I had to duplicate the sentence, offset the duplicate and only have part of each sentence show at any given time. That was how I made the obscured word appear on both sides of the cap so that the entire sentence is showing at all times, just like the original used in Ghost in the Shell. Another obstacle was the fact that Flash 8 doesn't have a text-to-path feature. Meaning that I can't write a sentence and then have it curve into a circle. Each letter is it's own independent element which is why they appear to jitter slightly as they rotate.
I made the frame rate 29.97 frames per second because that is what NTSC Televisions (American TV's) run at, and that is the frame rate used in the DVD I watched that had this logo in it. I also timed how long it took for the logo to rotate at 29.97 FPS and I am as close as I can get to the original. The only thing missing is the bloom effect which can be seen at the reference link above in the last picture. So other than the bloom effect, I did everything I could to make this just like the original.
The original was made by Paul Nicholson when Kenji Kamiyama asked him to make a logo for the Ghost in the Shell series. The sentence is a quote from The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger. The quote in its entirety goes,
"I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes. That way I wouldn't have to have any goddamn stupid useless conversations with anybody. If anybody wanted to tell me something they'd have to write it on a piece of paper and shove it over to me. They'd get bored as hell doing that after a while, and then I'd be through with having conversations for the rest of my life".
You might want to right-click on it and set the quality to low because it is very CPU intensive. (I blame the lack of text-to-path functionality.) Leave a comment and tell me if I missed anything.
Edit********* Newer version with bloom here: [link]
The round started off quickly, and Seth's Night Slashes were even quicker. A Dark type vs a Psychic type; the Absol and his trainer knew this round would not last more then a few attacks. Elegie dodged the attacks as best as he could in the cramped train, refusing to fight back on his own. What was Storm doing? watching in amusement. This was the first time she was testing the ancient bird in battle. It was clear though, the bird needed to be whipped with something other then attacks.
"Pokedex entry claims you used to guard an ancient city, and attack intruders of your territory. Well it looks to me you're not doing a very good job, seeing how your territory and ancient city happens to be the real Storm. Fight back, or she will fall just like your pathetic ancient city."
From these words, the Sigilyph looked as if it flipped a switch. The Absol was too fast to be hit by ice beam, and Fly or Sky Attack would do no good in a small car. Psychic did not directly affect the Absol, until Elegie used it to manipulate the train, and implode it apon them.
_____________________________________________ Elegie is not having a good day, he didn't want to be threatened to battle :c
