ANIMATOR SHOWDOWN

So you want to show off your animation skills, huh? You've come to the right place.

About:
This thread is just the start of an animation battle, but wait. You gotta take down your opponents and have the best animation that is voted on by people of MT. Some battles will make you focus on speed and others will make you focus on quality. The person that chooses the theme sets all the rules for the round.

NOTES:
1. We will start slow and work or way up.

2. For the first two rounds we will start at 30 seconds and work up 15 seconds for the second one. Like so:
Round one: 30 seconds
Round two: 45 seconds
Round three: 1:00 minute
After this we will go by 30 seconds:
Round four: 1:30
Round five: 2:00
Nearing the end of the year we will have a competition to make an episode.

I want to ask something:
1. Can a beginner in animation also participate in the event (to practice)?
2. How many FPS? Or it's up to us?

@GunZet:
We could use cheap trick like Dragon Ball anime... staring contest, panning, zooming, etc ^_^

Wait, silly goose Jai. Where's the date? What kinda battle is this gonna be? Different 1v1 battles, or all 1v1v1v1v1v1 and so on. It's kinda confusing to me .__. I guess you could sign me up. Time to shake off the rust :}


HM. Well actually, I'm gonna be a cheapo and say nvm. Didnt read the 1 minute thing. I mean, yeah. I animate again, but I'm not going to animate 1 minute just yet >__>'

P.S. Shouldnt this be in the Animation, Drawing and Tutorials section? >__>'

Gunzet: We can all do it. I mean. I will allow it to be changed depending on what the theme is.

Lvuer: As far as I know, we are all beginners. That's the reason I made it! Go ahead and use what ever FPS you need to get the job done. Some rounds might be judged on art quality and others might be judged on how well you captured it. It all depends.

Sho: It can be from 1v1 to 1v1v1v1v1v1v1. I might even throw in some team competitions. ;D Don't leave as a cheapo. You can do this man. I guess we shall work ourselves up to a minute and then more over time. Would that help? Also, I usually see battle things in the creaters corner so, I don't know.

@jaidurn:
Since there's someone brought it up, isn't one minute of animation is a bit too long? And oh, are we making it in GIF format or movie format (AVI, MP4)?

OK. Gunzet gets to choose the theme for the first entry. He also gets to choose how many weeks we have to work on it. GO GO GO GO GO.

So is it starting now or we should wait for Jaidurn to give his go?

And what is the format? I suggest GIF since it's small and easy to make (and we don't need voice).

And since this is the first time I participate in events like this, is anyone care to give more detailed explanation/rules about what to do?

I guess you can start whenever you want from today on. Just have it ready in what...2 weeks I guess?
GIF would def be the way to go.
And um...I dunno, there aren't many rules from what Jai told me. I dunno, guess you'll have to wait for him to pop up lol.
