I try not to use Pivot like most. I try to be a bit different. Sometimes it works, sometimes it fails horribly so... I will let you guys decide! This thread is very simple; just to show off some of my stuff to people who probably haven't seen it. <:

I have tons more I could upload but these few will do for now. Most of these animations were made in just a few hours, or an evening. I find if I work on one thing for more than a day I lose interest very easily. I am happy to give out .pivs if anyone wants them. Thanks for looking! :)

You seem to be pretty good, we don't have as strict laws here as DD. Mainly because most people no longer pivot.

I gotta admit these where all pretty damn good, I love the dancing one mostly.

Thanks both. Yeah, the dancing one got good responses. Hopefully I will be able to transfer my "style" to Flash effectively, though the bounciness will be difficult to grasp at 24fps.

"I find if I work on one thing for more than a day I lose interest very easily. "
Trust me, you're not the only one.
And tranfserring style from pivot to flash is really, really hard. it's like starting animating all over again.
The anims are really sweet! I love 'em. What fps do you use now? :O Just curious. ;)

I use/d what Pivot 2.2.5 defaults to which I believe is 17fps. Might be 18, don't think anyone really knows..

Loved the one with the dancing, did you use a reference (as in, a clip of someone doing that dance)?

Krustalien
03-05-2012, 06:37 AM
Oh hey poppetje! It's been so long, holy crap! We go back over 4 years I think. :D

Also, no, no references. :)

Yes it is A long time Indeed! I am amazed that you are still pivoting! I gave pivot up and gone to flash. Haha.

Krusty! You, Demonkilo, and me need to take over the pivot section! :P

Your animations already have.

All part of my plan to take over the world, Garbear. One step at a time!

16.6 :)

Lovely animations by the way. I think I became a smoother animator just watching them. Balance seemed a bit off on the top one but it doesn't really matter to be honest. I don't think you're trying to make it look realistic.

Krustalien

My intention isn't to make animation look realistic but to make it look believable; which gives me the freedom to animate goofy movements and use silly poses! :D

Interesting to know it is 16.6fps, that's incredibly low! No wonder 24fps feels so foreign. Thanks for the kind words. :>

i think this is clever actually, cuz animations aren't to do what can be done. Animations are to take what is impossible and make it possible! Great idea! I support this, and i think you should upload some of these to your Youtube channel

I need to animate like that in flash... nobody does as far as i know... so.. bouncy and together... but not clumsy...
god if only you could teach that style in flash...

It's been forever since I visited SP! I have made one or two things worth showing since I last posted, check out "Capture the flag" and "Nutcracker style" on the first post. :)

Oh and thanks for the lovely comments. c:

Really nice really smooth, have you ever considered switching to flash?

Thanks. Of course I have considered moving (don't you remember my billions of "I quit Pivot" videos on YouTube? ;D), but I haven't really made a defined switch. As I animate less, the amount I animate in Flash in proportion to the amount I animate in Pivot has increased. Still sort of "finding my feet" for stickfigures in Flash.

I made this promo video thing in Flash a few days ago, for example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1v4GxW-aWE - not stickfigures, but still Flash!

I might get some stickfigures on the go now; see what I can do. Thanks for the comment. :)

you don't have to use 24 fps
you can use the line tool to create similar effects
I'd prefer you stick with pivot since you're amazingly great with it
also you should get in competitions on stickpage an like that, for example bse, you don't need flash to get in.

you sir are the master of patience. i do not see how you did all those little movements with the capture the flag.
you don't see many people put that much effort in trying to get over one obstacle, let alone animating the figure stretch before he runs.
loved everything!

Krustalien

Thanks guys. Yeah, it can get frustrating, but taking the little bit of extra time it takes to do those little adjustments and twitches is worth it, imo. Humans are like that; when we're unsure of ourselves, we hesitate, so making a stickfigure do the same only makes sense. It's more entertaining, too, because the viewer can relate to what they're seeing.

And I know I don't have to animate at 24fps, lol. I actually animate at 25fps in Flash, when I do, as the only reason to use 24 is to be able to break it down and animate on 2s, with in-betweens, etc, which I don't do. 25 makes for smoother playback in videos, so yeah. I actually posted some of my Flash stuff: http://forums.stickpage.com/showthread.php?44209-Krustalien-I-am-a-Pivoter-at-heart-but-here-s-some-stuff - do comment, it only got a few responses. :)

Small addition, I made the start of this animation aaaaaages ago, but did the second scene across an hour or two this evening.

Nothing serious really, thought I may as well post it. :)

good seeing you animate with pivot again :)

Krustalien
11-06-2012, 05:07 AM
Yeah, I did this whilst talking to people, so progress was very slow but it allowed me to kind of... chill, and animate, instead of just forcing the frames out. :)

Anyone else?

Valtus
11-06-2012, 06:13 AM
Nice one, dude. I dunno are you familiar with Eklipse from DD. :D

So you're moving from pivot to flash? That sounds neat, dude! But hopefully you stick with pivot, too. Even after moving on Flash.
Your movements are so entertaining. :D

Wow, valtus i didnt know you were on stickpage
I love your packs by the way :o

This is nothing amazing, but I did say at the start of this thread that I like to be a little different.

Very short, but it didn't take long, so.

Best Pivot animator i have ever seen. At least the style of animating.

Krustalien
11-23-2012, 05:30 PM
Thanks man. ^

Why do some people here seem to think Pivot is a toy, or somehow pointless next to a programme like Flash? Have to say I find that a little insulting.

First animation (that wasn't a silly test) in Pivot 4.

http://darkdemon.org/user-files/16909/1357215065.gif

The red guy was added as a lazy afterthought. And yeah the gun shakes but meh, I had it joined to the guy's hand, and it's a bit limiting precision-wise. The gun isn't mine, it's a sprite made by a fellow on DD called Princess Luna (aka Predator). His stuff is awesome.

Pivot 4 woo. :D

Also I made this a week or so ago (Piv2). It's a completely normal stickman, not modified at all. :3

All of your stuff seems really good, glad to have found another fellow pivoteer :3 (I shift between pivot and flash btw)
The animation above was smooth and all, but the stickfigure looked really creepy e.o I mean, I know it's supposed to be a chicken, but still.
Don't know if it's just me.
