View Full Version : The Showdown - Character - rmatlchans

06 June 2003, 05:22 AM

Hi, all~!

To find out easer, I brought this reel to this page here.

This is My Final animation and added title for begining and end..

then.. I don't know how I coould size down with quicktime format.

Once I finished compressing this, it sizes like 30Mb something..

But.. With divx.. I could shrink this down to 2.39Mb.

So~! I think you'd better get Divx one..

:blush: Quicktime (30Mb) (

:) Divx (2.39 Mb) (

Basically, as I said.. this reel is for my animation reel.
So I have couples things to talk about this.

1) This guy.. is the hero .. who is well traned some koong-fu stuff.

2) This guy came over to terminate the evil-monster which pressed people under fear.

3) Right now! (is going to be showen as a challenge) they, both are just faced each other!

4) this guy tries to beat the evil-monster.. but... the monster doent seem to be hurt at all.

5) for the more! the evil-monster attaces by 3 combo kicks!!
Even the each kick is enough strong to be die!

6) this poor guy is in the air now (by the combo kicks)..... right at this moment his going down... then the horrirble monster is smiling, waitng, and prepareing for the final attack.. which is smashing the hero to the ground!!!

7) Finally, the monster graps a leg of the OUR HERO! (of couse the leg is graped in the air)

8) THEN, somehow.. the hero wins!!!

Probably, you would very wounder about the HOW. But, this is going to be a cue to make this animation reel funny.

So, I wont tell you about the last .. the HOW.

Right now, I have doen about 100 frames so far..

will post some short later!

Here I attach a cycle of my hero.

The pose it self is about.. kinda warming up..??

I made this cycle in a rush.. some coments plz about the design itself.

When I made this guy, I just wanted to use this guy only for exercising animation..

So I dont have any willing to give better design for this guy.

I just hope its not too bad. :D

But, I will promise giving the best design for the evil-monster as much as I can!

Click this to see the Cycle(825K) (

I think this size is not to bad to download..:D

I wanted to make streaming MOV file.. but i dont have plugin to do... sorry about this..

Cant wait for more images....for sure I will watching your thread from now on for more updates :applause:

STEN :thumbsup:

Your Design looks great like it is, go away from the grey and push it up with some cool texture then you will find out that any more detail are not really necessary.

Well that´s just my suggestion, sure there are other possibilities as well...

I love the simplistic approach....nice

06 June 2003, 09:22 AM
I have done this so far..

I haven't really been able to work on this.

But My WIP is anyway going on.. hehe~

This wip is only for TIMING!!

The detail movements are of course able to be funny, but I will fix them all.

Hyu~~~ :wise:

Hi, guys.. I haven't been here. Good to see ya again.

I have working on my chellenge so hard, but Making an animation is still so hard to me as I mentoned at the beginning of this chellenge.

But, I guess I could make this end just in time.

Then, I have reallized that I don't really have some thing to update before before I really finish.

Just... I will give you What I am keeping for this chellenge.

1) This is an chellenge only for ANIMATION. So, I do not have attention for any realistic texture nor modeling.

2) The Last scene has to be spectacular.

3) Do my best and make it my best.

That's it. :hmm:

I don't have any experence from real field so I just put every thing that I could and know. But only to make a good animation,
I have to pull away some eye-candy stuff.


I came here to say that I am still working on the chellenge and I will show you my completed work at the end of this chellenge.

See you again and god bless you.

Hi, guys. I wanna show up my work here.

Well, have I mentioned..?

As my roommate cut the internet connection, I can't update this thread often. Now.. Where I am is an Internet cafe near by my home.

Yeah.. this is such a bed state for me...

Anyway, I wanna update some scenes of my WIP.

The last 2 scenes in this update is that right now I'm fixing on.

Then I still have 2 more scenes that is going to be update in a few days.

Just One thing.. I guess this animation gotta be more than 20 sec.

If I don't plan shrink this, it may be about 28sec.

Is that OK for this chellenge..?

If not.. I will shrink this.. of couse...

hahaha.. pretty funny stuff! I love the fist grab and toss part!

My only suggestion would be to hold those poses a bit longer for the little guy int he beginning... but then... what do I know :)

Looking cool!

Hi, guys all.

I have just finished this thread right now.

Here the last picture about this challenge..


then, this is the last movie..

Well.. I suggest u download Divx ver.. pretty smaller size.
I dont know how to shrink down the size if I go with quicktime.

Then.. you would better watch them after once completed.

With Quicktime -- 30Mb -_- ;; (

With Divx Compressed -- 2.4 Mb (

Those file has some titles for begining and ending so might be longer than 20 seconds.. but truly the story itself is just about 20 sec!!!

If this is not right, comment me.. I would fix them.

07 July 2003, 01:31 AM
Good stuff!

07 July 2003, 06:52 AM
thanks, Kricket

But, I have no Idea how to get smaller size for quicktime version..

That's too big..

How damn.. 30 Mb..~!!!!!

Are you using the Sorenson3 codec to compress it? Lower the quality level.

07 July 2003, 01:46 PM
Ah.... tired of waiting for the result.....

The two guys (1st and 2nd) from the viewer's choices were really great..

Hoooooo when can I be like them....???

I reallized once again how far and hard this road is..

cheers for every one..:thumbsup:

Dude that’s a bad approach to the challenge…
This is about how much you can improve yourself and not how much everyone else does better or worse than you do.
That’s the good thing about the CGTalk community, we’re all here to help and learn from each other, other wise they would have called it CG Competition…

07 July 2003, 04:10 AM
well~ I think you got something wrong about my words, buddy.

I didnt mean to say "some body made better things than I did, Damn it~!"

What I really wanna say is that I could reallize where I am standing.

As you do, I also could see other's works here..
As you do, I also could be impressed by there works.
As I do, you also could see where you are.(I don't mean you are bad like me.)

Don't get feel bad from what I had wrote here.
I really didnt mean to.
May be.. My english coused this misunderstanding.

07 July 2003, 09:58 AM
Its all good rmatlchans, I also wasnt trying to be harsh or anything (guess that "...bad aproach..." bit may have put you off, so I apologise), is just that you should be proud of yourself by being able to finish the challenge and hopefully have learn and improve your animation skills.

All the best.

07 July 2003, 12:27 AM
Okei, Gru, buddy.

Yeah, every things are gonna be GOOD!

I could learn more, I could see more, and I couold know How.

As You said to me, this is all from this challenge.

This is all about challenge. you right.

Cheers~!! :thumbsup:
