Sideshow Accidents - tightrope+cannon - baby

ok Guyzz I'm in...

first of all I won't follow exactly the guidelines (those damn guidelines) as I'm trying to learn animation at the moment (on maya)...I don't want to focus at all in creating a character, but rather animate animate and animate...and I don't have a character that could fit...
but as I like this exercice...I'll try anyway...

so my guy will be my toro...from now in this challenge he's old cousin of elephant man....ok sorry ...
but to try to fit just a little bit with the sideshow idea, I'll add a little joke at the'll understand...

I wont respect the lenght also I know I'm bad !!! but I'm french...that's why...

As I want to do the tightrop...fall into cannon...stuck into little end joke...

voila...I started 4 hours ago...a little preview is coming...

EDIT : check last post for working links

Dude thats one hell of a attitude, if you dont care about the guidelines why do you come and post your stuff over here, there's always the WIP section for you to post and and spare people of (what you call)a "being french" attitude.



Old 08 August 2003   #7
that's what I call

a useless and totally unconstructive post...

thxx bye bye then....

nb : I never said I don't care...
nb 2 : funny; you're from UK & U don't even know Monty Pythons humor... :thumbsdow

Ahahahaha, that's some good stuff man! I love it after he hears the sound. It's very Road Runner like.. hehe

You are doing really well.. I wish I had a character already modelled and rigged so that I could just concentrate on the animation.

Gru: Don't rip him up yet. Remember, he just mentioned that he won't follow the guidelines.. doesn't mean it's final. From the looks of it.. it could be 20 seconds.. and sure, it's a cow.. not a carny.. buy hey. The animation isn't bad at all.. and that's what matters MOST.

PS: Having his work in the challange section is inspiring me, and I'm sure more fellow cgtalk'ers. Keep up the good work baby!

Dont get me wrong, wasnt trying to rip him up at all and yeah the animation looks very good so far. My point was about the attitude, thats why there are some guidelines to follow and would be a pitty that he would be trown out because those have been broken...



Old 08 August 2003   #11
Understood.. but using positive critisism could have been easier.

Something such as:
baby, you have really great work.. I think you have a chance of winning, except you may not qualify due to your time limit and model. If it's possible to tweak your peice, you've got a good shot.

Or, baby... your work is much better than mine - but hey.. you won't win cause you don't qualify... suck to be you! (in a very comical manner - which implies were just having fun)

Sorry for being analytical - I just hate when people shoot other people down for good work. In the meantime, good luck and go get working on your dog humping - I'm going to bed. Tomorrow I may just sumbit something myself. I have a few ideas.

hey guyzzz

calm down...

it's OK...I'm not really in the challenge if U prefer...
I'm doing it just for fun and the hapless hero one...

anyway i'm not fond of guidelines when it's about hobby & creativity
already a ton of constraints at work

as for the bad attitude you're talking about...well...
I'm french why do U think I have this outrageousssss accent you silly king...

here's a small update again....I really need to sleep now...I have a huuuuge "neckake"...

edit : Vandal, thxxxx for the comment

I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered!

Haha, excellent work my friend!
Looking pretty good so far.

Only comment is that it looks a little strange when the tightrope just stops moving towards the end.

Keep up the good work!
