View Full Version : Animation: Waterdogs 3-D Intro
07-09-2003, 12:37 PM
Hey guys I did this intro 2 months ago and I am looking for serious feedback due to I am starting on the first webisode now. The intro is about 1 minute long, and each webisode will be about 3-5 mins long. This piece is setup like an intro to an animated series on television. It started out as a piece for my demo to show compositing/effects, textures, and painting backgrounds. I do not really consider myself an animator but I really did have fun animating all the characters. The animations were done in Poser, The effects and compositing were done in Combustion/After Effects, and the textures in photoshop. This is based on my comic book that came out last year called "Waterdogs". Here is the link.

i would much rather see it in a cell shaded style. And for most part the character's movements seemed very un-netural and stiff, not to mention slow.(i know it was slow motion, but still too slow)

The opening title is illegible.
Most of the shots are held too long.

i agree on both coments,
but i have 2 notice the timing of the music, and the changes of the shots where nicely done.
(sorry 4 my bad english)

Ya I agree that it is a little slow, I do have a question what does illegal mean?

Really the Waterdogs logo is to illegible, Sorry for the misspelling on (illegal) I have to admit the compression is not the greatest. Thanks for the comments guys keep them coming.

I found the final sequence when the characters landed on the lettering to be slightly strange, because they are rotating backwards to land - maybe if you had the characters come into screen from above, or fade in as they are doing a forward flip onto the lettering, it would have more impact?

Ya it does seem wierd when I look back at it. They always reminded me of animated Barbie dolls in that sequence. Thanks for the comments guys this really helps. This is really my first animations
