Weekly Best Of Stick Nodes Animations [V]

Weekly Stick Nodes 5

 

Hello everyone, I hope you’re all doing fantastic.

Welcome to another collection of the best/most noteworthy, Stick Nodes animations that I’ve found during this week.

 

I would like to mention before we get started, that I’ve recently upgraded the software for Animation Alpha’s forums, if you previously had an account this will mean you’ll have to make a new one (if you haven’t already). And to anyone else, I’d love it if you would join up there and post your animations in the Animations section for all of us to check out and give you some feedback.

I’ve also created an upload page so you can share your animation based files with people around the web and on the forums, you can check it out here if you’re interested. Alright, with all of that said, lets get started!

 

The first animation I have for you today is called “Rushed” made by Heckray and was an entry to the Flawless collab. I love the movements in this one and really enjoy that awesome looking sword. The effects, though not completely made in Stick Nodes, still look amazing and I applaud the end result!

 

Alright so the second animation I have to show you today is called “Parkour Animation” by Kaido Mation. I am particularly fond of this one because of it’s amazing fighting scenes near the end. But the animation as a whole is amazing and quite well done. I also love that it’s a rather long animation. Well done Kaido!

 

Now the third animation I would like to show you is called “Blast Enraged Mode” by Psycho M Animation. It’s shorter than I would have liked, but it makes up for it in being of decent animation quality, great background usage, and very nice visual effects (those fire hands though). Good job Psycho!

 

Bonus Video

The following is a perfect example of how the Sean vs Ralph animations should not end. Made by Ralph obviously, and as such I give this animation a -6/10. Terrible, just terrible. I did laugh though.

 

Alright all, that’s it for this post, I’d love to see your animations getting posted over in the animation section of the forums. It will not only benefit you because you can get some helpful tips for animating, but it could also give you a chance at being showcased like these animations.

Okay, I’ll see you all in the next one! If you liked this post it’d be great if you could share it or show it to your friends etc, lets try to build this community even bigger!

    All three of those animations were amazing. Heckrays movements and sounds, Kaido’s fight scene, and the amount of detail in Psycho’s animation.

    Oh, but that bonus video takes the cake.

      Agree’d. Yeah he’s pretty under-known so I’m glad I can shed some spotlight on someone a bit more.

        They sure are.

        What do you mean? If you’re talking about posting on the website in general, you can go to the forums and post there.

        If you’re talking about on these main site posts, only I do that and I only post animations that are interesting or funny and that have a decent animation quality about them.

        You can link me to your animations if you like, I’d like to see them.

      You’d have to have a decent animation that’s interesting or funny or both. It also needs to be at least a good amount of animation quality though and it’s only the ones I choose, people can’t nominate or post them on their own.

      You can however, post your animations on the forums and we can take a look at it and give you some feedback: http://animationalpha.com/forum/

            Question:Exactly how do you animate smoothly Is it pose then next from or just pose the stick figure how you like THEN next frame

          • Sean

            May 5, 2016

            Well what I do is animate it frame by frame. Ralph on the other hand animates a pose, then animate a pose that he’d be in 3 frames later, and then goes back and fills in the gaps.

            It all depends on what suits you best.

            But smoothness comes from animating a lot of frames for even small movements, also keep easing in mind, where you gradually accelerate or decelerate any action that is taking place, so an arm swinging around wouldn’t reach top speed right away, it would take a few frames so you’d start of slowly and gradually make larger gaps in-between the next frames.

            Hopefully that clears it up for you.
