Animation of The Week

Animation of The Week

 

Hello all, how have you been? I’m actually posting at a somewhat reasonable date this time!

Today I have something different to talk about rather than a specific animation (though I’ll likely post one towards the end), which is that I’ve started a simple contest, well two actually, that are called Animation of The Week and Stickfigure of The Week (AOTW & SOTW respectively).

 

Essentially this is a contest to see who amongst the Stick Nodes animators and stickfigure creators is the best/can follow the theme the most accurately while still maintaining a good level of detail or quality to it.

So I’ve started the contest over on the forums and I feel this will be a good motivation for you all, I remember I used to love doing these when I was into Pivot back in the day so I thought you all would too.

Here is the links to the AOTW #1 and SOTW #1, go over there, check out the details and get back in there when you’ve completed your entry to post it! I look forward to your entries!

I’m also considering making the prizes slightly more interesting in the future, so be sure to come back for the other weeks.

 

Here’s an animation for you anyway:

So that one was made by Jeok Hwa and it’s titled Zenocide 2, it was posted up on Hyun Dojo’s channel.

I really love this one, I love how fast paced and action packed it is all at once! I also liked how he was able to kill 4 guys on one jumping spin maneuver, that was indeed epic. I wish it wasn’t so short though, it was just getting good!

There isn’t much else to say about this one, so it’s just as-well I had more on my agenda today anyway, but I still enjoyed this one a lot so it was worth a post.

 

Alright all, that’s enough for today, myself and Ralph would love to see your entries for both the AOTW and the SOTW, we know you’ll do great!

If you’d like to, you can comment bellow about the competitions or the animation JH made, I’d love to hear what you think of it all and any suggestions you may have regarding them. Thanks, see you around!

    Good morning. I want to participate, but do not understand what you have written instructions about how to put my animation (translated through an interpreter). How?

          There’s no limit or anything, but I do advise making it a substantial length, the people voting will look at length as well as it’s quality.
