View Full Version : Knight and Dragon cartoon - dialogue

05 May 2012, 12:13 AM

Hey guys!

I've just uploaded a brand new animation to YouTube entitled "I love you".
The audio is from "Superbad"

Completed in roughly 4 days, this was a great learning curve for me.

Any thoughts/feedback you have would be greatly appreciated!
Sorry the video is squashed inwards. I'm still trying to figure out why YouTube does that. If you set the quality to 480p and full-screen it you can see the last shot in better detail.

@ragdoll - cheers man! 3D is what I'm more versed in, but I do plan on venturing into 2D a lot more. It's a great learning curve :)

this is great!
I always thought that line would work very well animated!

@YashaP - haha yeah, this was a piece of dialogue I've always had stashed away to do later. Great little inflections/pauses - plus the higher pitches make it easier to adapt to any 'situation'

Thanks for watching!

I love it! I looked at your other stuff and I like FAQ a Short, great style and sense of humor. Keep up the good work!

I agree, "FAQ" is great! nice traditional style.

@ProfesorBaltazar / RAF - thankyou kindly guys! I have a new one coming out in a couple of days (fingers crossed) - stay tuned :)

Holy snikeys! I love the audio matching, that was spot on, I know the movie it came from, but if I didn't I would think it was made to match the animation in the mouths of these guys. I like that artistic style also, the dragon reminds me of Pete's Dragon without the pink /purple hair.

@beasleyfreddie - thanks man! I had never animated a dialogue clip in 2D before. It was pretty fun, a good learning curve - especially when it came to color. Glad you enjoyed!
