We both tried our hardest on this battle.
Vote Fairly
and may the best man win

Quik

I vote Drone...

His RHG showed overall better animation and effort towards "getting to the point..."
Although SS's was good at first after he'd lost the background and quality most of his animation entertainment and overall feel went with it...

Drone's was quite entertaining especially considering he only animated for little over 5 months...

So yeah, no bias no BS,
Quik...

Drone. He had a bg and more action, angles and better quality animation.

I had high hopes for skyshark's part the way he set up the intro, but taking away the bg was a letdown and while the dialogue, music sync and fx were pretty the animation was lacking.

Drone has nicer and more difficult to animate prospective or point of view. Skyshark's presentation and effect are beautiful. (esp. the effects). this battle is going to be a really close one for the both of you. i voted for ...

I go for Skyshark. Sorry Drone. Skyshark's anim seems pretty neat, especially the menu and the battle. It was interesting to watch.

Oh my god.
Skyshark your beautiful my friend your effects where on point and awesome you animate like Mikematic but you have a great imagination and you animated this fight perfectly my man.

Drone your animation was Choppy my friend,I know your better at angles than 2D but you animate 2D better when you were in Limbo now its just sad. Your smoke effects were overused and you took at part of your animation from Lycan's tryout for your clan.

Skyshark takes this all the way man.

Lol, I didn't "take the part" from lycans animation, It was like an easter egg for people who saw lycan's tryout.
mostly just for lols
and I never actually did any 2D FIGHTING when I was in limbo if you remember, and that style is very incompatible with fighting so I changed it.

he didn't mean that I frame by framed the part, he meant I did a scene where I took him into space and lycan in his tryout did a scene where we went into space.

SCOUNDREL

It resembles Lycan's tryout if you guys haven't seen it.
Not that he completely stole it but it looks a lot like Lycan's.

I'm going to be extremely honest and say accusing drone of ripping from Lycan is retarded...

Does an animation called Obliteration seem familiar to you?
In that anim Tention punched a man into the moon...
Would it not occur to you that Lycan could have gotten it from there?
I doubt it because I know Lycan hates on Zeta but the whole to the moon thing has been done like a billion time before...
It's not like Lycan just up and made it his thing... although he looked badass while doing it, and quite frankly so did Drone...

Skyshark
07-22-2012, 03:07 PM
really? that's quite impressive actually.
and you had NO prior animation experience at all?

I wouldn't say none - I didn't go into Flash not knowing anything at all. I took a class six years ago (didn't learn anything, lol) and I played around with it three years ago. I just decided recently (the last two months or so) to pick it up again, because I've always loved stick fights and always wanted to make them. I played around with it and made nothing in particular, and finally sucked it up and made an RHG. So here I am. :)

SCOUNDREL
07-22-2012, 03:26 PM
@Quik Yeah Quik I've seen Tention's anim and say Lycan's aswell. Doesn't mean it couldn't influence Drone in his RHG.
Is that gonna have an effect on him maybe winning this RHG Battle? No.
But I just pointed it out,like how people pointed out in Obase's speed battle versus Graymaster he used a song The French used in one of his anims.
Didn't stop Obase from winning.
Just sayian...

Mikematic
07-22-2012, 03:46 PM
Ok well this is a good battle because both are like evenly match, and that's what RHG battles are all about.

Drone-
I liked what you had in your anim.
It had some good cinematics , and the angles were killer.

But one thing I noticed is that your style consists of a bunch of angled cinemania.
Its cool but it can get frustrating.

You should really work on your 2-D fighting, I know you tried it out in the begging, but then gave up on it cuss you weren't too good at it.

I'm not one to talk
But just don't be afraid to just get in there and make a combo.

Shyshark-
BRROOOOOOO
You freaking killed that anim!
I love that style (because its similar to mine XD)

Ok what I really liked about your anim is that it had some sort of a story, or meaning.
And not just senseless beating.
And in my opinion that alone is enough to beat a regular "beat the crap outta the other guy" anim.
But that was just the preloader....

Bro in your actual anim!
You synced the music
had some good effects
had some what of a story
And was just plain out entertaining!

Some things I noticed
I noticed you kinda dropped the whole boxing scene which was a bit disappointing.
But I noticed you made up for it by still keeping the story going.

And you use some text cut scenes that really made it fun!


So all in all, Drone in the sense of "beat the crap out of" you would take the cake.
But in my opinion well taught out anims, with a story behind it, always beats it.

It give the veiwer something to think about while watching the beating.
I learned that from Rhytm.

So Shyshark gets my vote on this.

and @Shyshark we should totally battle some time, you like perfected my style in one anim.
I'm really gonna love doing some joints with you sometime.

nice job bro :)

Xero
07-22-2012, 09:45 PM
I had to say Skysharks was impressive, but like some others were saying the quality just dropped and so did the anim.
Drone had his quality constant, and although his angles were abit difficult to follow, it got to the point, and he had oodles of ideas in there.
Only wish he could've had a better build up then just launching to the moon in practically no time.
I say drone.
Good go SS :)

So heres my vote...
([Name] - BG, Animation, Music, Sounds)
Drone - 10, 9, 9, 5 = 33
Skyshark - 9, 9, 10, 5 = 33

Drone - You got BG, Love the fuckin' angles and music... no sounds..
Skyshark - Love the preloader background, the animation and 2d fighting.. no sounds..

lol got tied :D

Did you want to just call it a tie, or did you want to keep the polls open?

It's fine with me either way, but whoever wins is going to do so by one or two votes. I'm going to consider a win or a loss, in my mind at least, a draw, just because the voting is so balanced at this point.

EDIT: Come to think of it, can you even close down a RHG poll before the closing date?

That's the sign of a good battle, that means both opponents tried there absolute best.
Gave it there all.
And the result comes out to this.

A very close battle!
Where the 2 bars are like magnets!

People just can't seem to decide who's was better.
And that's what battling is all about!

Good job Shyshark, and Drone.
I haven't seen such a good battle in a while.

Most battles these days is one spectacular opponents, and then a guy who puts crap together, and most of the time one of them forfeit.

But its nice to see such a good battle like this, to spice things up.

So once again, thanks for a great battle guys.

I vote for skyshark, the presentation was great and it seemed like more effort was put into the battle. The movements were ok, but kinda stiff but as far as the action goes you can tell whats going on and the use of the powers are more clear in skysharks.

Drone's was all over the place, decent animation, but still it was going very fast and didn't have such a good presentation too it. And the song was unfitting.

so yeah. good battle tho.


Edit: im so fucking late.
