-Emotion change ( change from one dramatic emotion to another)
-Martial arts

-a moving walk, with a twist (i.e. not a cycle)
-animate to a sound effects file (like gunfire or something)
-russian roulette
-waking up and walking outside naked

We should vote on two topics so if you dont like one you can do the other, as suggested by SirRon. Hopefuly this will bring in more contestants :)

The voting will end Sunday 11/12 and the challenge will start Monday 11/13. I would like to keep the challenges at a two week deadline but if you would like to change it then please say so when you cast your vote.

I dont know how to update the list without me editing my post. If only there was a way for everyone to add to the list.

Maybe between each session we can open a thread with what ever idea was left over and people can add stuff before the voting. Then the voting process would begin like now.

Kinda feel like I'm making things complicated. :shrug:

But I think it's good to keep this fast paced. Maybe we can get the unofficial animation challenge a front page plug?

I think you can do that with anything, even dialogue, so try it anyway. Download LowMan 1.0 (, it has no face or jaw so you don't have to deal with the face then animate using just the body.

Reason why I think you can do it for anything is that I remember watching V for Vendetta and was really entertained by the way V used his body to communicate even though he had a stiff mask. He had some pretty long dialogue scenes too.

So 2 weeks eh? Nov 27th?

I totally understand what you mean...I actually just found this free Elvis rig by Wade Reyer

The facial rig isn't the best, but the hands are awesome! Much more expressive than lowman!! :)

There are all kinds of rigs float'n around now, just google em!

So is it roulette or exercise? or both combined? or both seperately?

Pick one of the two to animate. Or if you are ambitious you can do both.
