View Full Version : February Animation Challenge

02 February 2010, 05:14 PM

Hi everyone, I know if your like myself you have been anxiously waiting to start up a new challenge. Well there's love in the air and its telling us that it's time to begin. This month we are doing things a little different since we missed out on so much time already. For the month of February we will be taking from a small list of actions and try to complete at least 3 of the 6 listed.

The List:


Emotions (takes/quick changes in emotion)

big surprise

I would like to make things a little more personal to each animator who devotes their time to stand up to the challenge. When posting your WIP animations lets start creating our own personal “Work In Progress” threads. That way anyone can subscribe to a thread and keep up with their favorite animator. If you update then it won’t be lost in a sea of posts. Also, if someone sees your WIP and has some helpful advice than you will be notified of any posts made to your thread as well. (Title your Thread/ Anim_Challenge:New Years_YourName)

The Rules Are:

Make all the WIPS in Playblast form, then if you choose you can create your final piece in a more robust renderer (NOT necessary, you can still post the final with a playblast).
No Time Limit. You could make your animation as long as you want, just be aware of the dead-line.
All participants must show there work-in-progress before posting the final.
As always, HAVE FUN!!! :buttrock:

Alright so I want to make sure I get this.

Do we do all the animation actions separate

Or do we pick 3 of them and do them all in one animation

What your gonna want to do is make the actions separate, but compile them all on to one clip so that it is easier for everyone to view your submission.

Great idea Splinter!

One thing to note. On the "title your thread" comment, you put in the Challenge name from last month.

I think everyone will probably figure it out, I just wanted to make you aware. Looking forward to the comp.!
