This is my first animation with a character I created last year. It is basically about whales in giant mecha suits defending humans against evil aliens. There is quite a bit of text to read in the beginning but it gets quite action heavy in the end. Or at least as action heavy as my humble animation skills allow me to do. :-) This is also the first time I tried toonshading my characters. So I hope you will enjoy it.
This is some pretty great stuff! I'm surprised more people haven't commented positively on it...really well done.
I agree, on both counts. I like the use of color.
The scarcity of comments in this forum is depressing. I'm sure everyone here has posted in hopes of getting some sort of feedback, for good or ill. But the silence is deafening. All I see is post after post with hundreds of views and zero comments.
Not sure why. The rest of the site seems to invite plenty of discussion. Perhaps it is because people have to go offsite to view the videos...?
That a pretty great video ! I was affraid about the colors when looking at the screenshot, but when animated it works well.
Just one problem with the animation : there no weight no recoil and no impact, wich was probably the most important in a video about whales, meca and big guns.
But I know how much animation is complicated and what you did is already better then I could do ^^.
I agree about the lack of response on this forum, I came here looking for critics and got almost nothing. And it's not because of the offsite video :/
Well I guess I can't really complain about that if don't participate more, I'll try to be more active !
Well I am happy to recieved some feedback from you guys. Thanks a lot for that. I know my animation skills still need lots of work. I usually stick to modeling only so animation is hard for me. To be fair it is not just conceptart that has a low response on videos. Other 3D websites and art websites have the same problem. I guess it is just easier and faster to look at pictures then it is to see an entire animation. Therefore pictures get more attention and thus more feedback.
