the models are awesome and the lighting is great too!

and i really like the way that the clothes move, but the animation itself isn't really nice, it's too mecanic. another thing that i didn't liked much was that some times the camera stopped in the middle of a "fast" snece, and every time that happened i could see the low resolution maps, that could be changed , i mean when the camera stops annother map was applied, i don't know..
the editing is strange in my opinion, at the start i couldn't understand what was going on

anyway, i think it's really nice and i liked how "unreal" it is, but the story could be changed and the animation could be improved

the Modeling and character design are really awesome ! but the animations is kinda weak tho :/

haha! although the animation was a little mechanic, as it has already been said, the models and lighting were real good, and it was overall very enjoyable to watch. I don't think the story needs improving, it was meant to be simple and full of action, I also liked the ending :thumbsup: The low res textures were usually unnoticable, mainly it was the ground texture that caught my eye. The cloth was very cool too :)

really good modeling and lighting man!:thumbsup: i really like it!

Good one, just need some animation and sounds improvements, great work :thumbsup:

btw I like the mix between Vash from Trigun / Tetsuo from Akira ;)

i also regret the spent more time for animation,

i spent more for concept design ,character modeling ,texture than for animation (6month dor design,modeling,texture and trial)

jack is mixed character, trigun and Tetsuo etc(otheranimation character)

i hope improve this animation

thanks for comment :)

oh man, i absolutley LOVED that animation!!! And the music was totally awesome (although i'm a HUGE bon jovi fan)! !!! At 5:35 i yelled "thats so F*cking awesome" when jack got launched off that engine thing and when he landed he did a spin thingy. The spin was soooo cool. I can definitly tell your going to get frontpage and most likely a CGtalk award (do they still give those out?). Anyway, awesome animation :)


Edit: Its soooooo refreshing to see some good semi-realistic models instead of the toon crap that is normally animated. Great job!

I liked the modelling, as mentioned before the animation could use work...Also, nice plug to Roadrunner Records ;)


12 December 2003, 11:31 PM gosh.....

방금 저희 대학의 미국애들한테도 보여줬더니

BUMP: Hehe, sorry for the bump, but i think everyone deserves to see this. Its fantastic and i know it will make frontpage if a mod sees it.

:surprised This is quite possibly the greatest short I have ever seen. The motion and pace of this is really cool. Great job! I love it, incredible :).

12 December 2003, 05:06 AM
well i have a few crits you might be interested to hear, first off i love the look of the animation it's very good, second, the pacing is a bit jumpy and at times downright choppy, if you took the time to elaborate the motions just alittle bit more you would have a much more dramatic and dynamic animation, being so jumpy it's hard and almost annoying to watch, some minor sound fx issues perhaps instead of cutting out the gatling gun sound at the end just lower it so you can hear the badguy laugh, and im not a big fan of one wild night for some reason that doesn't scream badass action chase sequence , i would have stuck with what sounded like rammstein but could have been the band from the opening of final fantasy X, oh yes and i liked the scryed homage you had where he lands like kazuma. keep up the good work and keep pluggin away. SYFLEX RULES

(if you can get it to work and not destroy your computer)

I love the modeling, textureing and animating in this short but for me to tell you it's perfect would be a lie.
To be honest it looks a little unfinished. There are some things that need to be cleaned up, for example when the girl goes over to recharge the bike she slides over to it instead of walking the last step or 2. Also like Gunslingerjack pointed out there are some spots that are jumpy.

Overall I really like it, it has good timing and a great story but it just looks like it needs some touching up.

12 December 2003, 05:16 AM
lol gunslighblack. You thought of scryed when he did that bad ass spinny thing at the end too?

Hi Fluxxx ! Thanks for this, your animation is really fun !
I've loved the story :love: , characters and modeling are pretty cool too.
My only crit : your animation, too mechanical in some times, too quick to be understandable in others moments.
Have you done sketches and storyboard ? I would be interested in see them.
Bravo for all !

12 December 2003, 08:42 PM
haha yes i gunslingerjack am here hahaha u know what else i loved the freeze frame introductions "tough guy, sheriff, very very strong man" and then you have..."he is a prisoner" but then you have my personal favorite "the greatest scoundrel aliveness" hahah it's great, i only wish i had a lack of knowledge of english so i could come up with such great stuff, keep up the good work and i hope to see more from u guys.

ps. no sarcasm i really do love it.

Kinda reminds me of Trigun, which is a good thing

12 December 2003, 07:34 AM

12 December 2003, 07:06 AM
Cool, :thumbsup:

12 December 2003, 12:27 PM
i dont have time to read the other posts or watch the vid, but in the pic you've posted there ( great model by the way :applause: ), the his figure looks a bit girly, his waist looks too thin to me.

12 December 2003, 04:38 AM
thin waist is concept for more sharp character image,

but it's look ugly, it's my mistake ;)
