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.

So how many days left? Anybody could finish it on time?

I doubt I can finish it on time (and I don't want/dare to ask for an extension), so I guess I'll just post whatever I've finished and pray for the best...

OH DEAR GOD. THE TIME IS CLOSE.

How many of you have 30 seconds? Do we need another week?

Another week is good (although I don't like repeated extension, though I'm not finished myself, so I'm not the one to talk here...). I don't know how many seconds I have made since I haven't fully finished anything (bit of animation here and a bit there).

Well this would be the last extention making it a 4 week long contest. This is the warm up contest so 4 weeks is an ok time.

I failed with this, but it's all I got, between designing a game, drawing, drawing for other people, school, crap.

I've been animating something which I might finish, idk if I can finish it on time though. Kinda confused as to when we're supposed to post our entries. But if worst comes to worst I'll just upload as far as I got with it.

EDIT : This whole thing flopped, didn't it.

I need to focus more on other digital aspects before taking on animation.

This contest is p. bad. School got all up in my grill so I didn't have enough time. I'm gonna get better at drawing and then try this again.
