View Full Version : Cg Challenge Animation hero

03 March 2003, 04:18 AM
hI there everyone this is my first challenge and it seams like its going to be fun and definatly worth wild. I hope I am setting this up right so I will just get down to it.

Well now down to the story and concept of this little short. What the basic idea is that a Batman type of character goes up against a powerful energy powered Monkey, named Monkey. What happens is Batguy (for lack of a better name) is trying out a new gadget or weapon on his suit to give him some energy powers. "Now , now I will show you my power". Only when he actually tries to use them wile facing up against the Monkey it doesn't work quite right and stalls. The monkey is annoyed at him trying to fight him with pathetic attempts to power up. So after Batguy tries again to power up, only to have his legs blow up as hug muscles ofr a sec then return to normal. The Monkey then gets angry and shoots a fireball at him leaving only the top of his face armor left in the screen. then after a short pause in mid air it than falls to the ground, as the energy blast flies out of the screen.

My web page for the challenge is
Thats it so far and I hope the characters will be ok and that I am entering so late.

I am using two characters I have been working on for some time for some other small animatins that I didn't think was good enough yat to put on my web. But this time I am determined to make a very cool animation and go from there. hope you like what you see so far on my page and that you would visit my main web page as well.

Models look great.
Cept for the monkeys pose, shouldnt he be all cowwered over, nearly on all fours, like monkeys do in reality?
I think the characters look awsome, but i dont get the feeling that there's something consious behind the pose. Almost like its a default stance. I think there can be more life in the pose, other then that it looks facking cool mang!!!!!!:thumbsup:

peace out side mang!

I actually just made them stand there like that because i was worried about getting to the animation and getting the site up and going to spend much time on there poses. But yes your right they do look like there is nothing in there thought process yet or anything behind there ears, but I was just trying to get something better then them just sitting at there default posses. Thanks for the suggestion I will try my hardest to make it seem like they are always thinking from now on. Also the monkey isn't done yet and will soon actually have some sort of a villain costume. The Batguy is also not fully done but very close. I will soon have a background as well.

Heres my site if you missed it up above.
