Something went wrong, and it's now over.

Song: Electus - Running Blind

"Lots of things can be fixed. Things can be fixed. But many times, relationships between people cannot be fixed, because they should not be fixed. You're aboard a ship setting sail, and the other person has joined the inland circus, or is boarding a different ship, and you just can't be with each other anymore. Because you shouldn't be" - C. Joybell C.

Gift or something (or whatever) for :iconsorcerushorserus:, hope you like it :D

Had the idea while listening to that song, and I thought it would be cool to make some sort of still/animated thing, don't really know how to explain it, but you probably got it by viewing it Meow :3 
Working on this with my new computer was just a blast, I'm so happy I can work without any problem. Also I can use all that SFM has to offer YAY :happybounce: 

Anyway, I don't have much else to say, there is a small clipping problem which I forgot to fix, and a small jump between last and first frame, tried my best to remove it but yeah..
I've edited the shutter speed to get that increased motion blur effect which I really like.
The title is pretty MEH, but it was the only one I found that fit the idea behind this Sweating a little...

I see the point of this artwork, but I couldn't help laughing. Something about characters in still-shots that still show their idle movement is just hilarious to me.
Especially with that scrunched up face RD has. 
But in a critical perspective, well done. I like it.

Weird, but I understand what you mean, it is a bit funny indeed.
Anyway thanks :)

Thank you so much :D
The environment in this case is crucial, so I worked a lot on it. Originally it was just a "block" of foliage, but then I decided that it was just too easy and stupid, so I went with random stuff until I got this. At the beginning this was meant to be some sort of cliff, with the waterfall in the distance, then, with the new computer the water model wasn't just black anymore, and I liked it, so I added it behind the rocks.. Then, river or lake, that's unknown :3
In the beginning also the camera angle meant something, with one going up (the right path) and the other one down, but then it kinda lost that meaning and became just a cool angle. Maybe there's still some of that in it, the actual story behind this is just an idea, a "sketch"..
But I like the idea of the place being their secret practice spot on the ground, or maybe a place they only know about Nod who know what they did there, heh sorry :c

I actually didn't notice that dappling effect until you noticed it. It's an interesting trick with lighting, I might use that in the future, don't know if it's situational though, it might depend on how the lights are posed in the scene.

Beautiful. Truly beautiful!

How did you get those light beams to dance like that?

Thanks :3
That's just a simple rainbow light with volumetrics enabled, with an animated tree model in front of it, nothing special :D

Dang this is pretty.
Shutdp Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2015
Thanks, I wanted it to be as good as I could, especially the environment :D
Also I die if there's not at least one visible volumetric in the scene (especially if there's foliage). I don't know, I just love them Sweating a little...
