However, winners of the first animation contest (Micool, Stone and T-Man) will all have the right to veto anyone else's selection and choose whichever game choice they want.

Note: Some of these games are a series as in Metal Gear Solid. When you select a game that has more then one part you can do a animation on any of the parts or all of them combined. Pick a game theme you believe is doable within the confines of your animating skill and not just because it's cool. You will have a limited time to work on this so pick something that you can sum up quickly or redo (in your own way) a famous scene.

Contest Rules are as follows:

Animation length should be no less then 3 minutes. That's three minutes of actual animation, not including intros.
No foul language, nudity or adult themes.
Try to keep the file size lower then 4 megs, lower the sound quality as too many people make the mistake of using perfect sound at the risk of large file sizes.
Use a preloader and have a start button or menu screen. Nobody likes animations that just start. They want to be able to push start.
Please include a stickpage.com intro animation that links to stickpage.com in a new window.
Please include a persistent link to stickpage.com in the top corner that links to stickpage.com in a new window.
Make sure to give yourself proper credit but please, no links, logos or names of any other sites other then Stickpage.com.
The structure of the animation should be stick figure based. Now if you feel you need to draw a character like "Mario" for cinematic appeal then do so as long as that character is in a supporting role and not the main character. This rule applys to props as well although backgrounds can be straight from the game.
You have 6 weeks to complete this animation. June 19th 2008 is the due date.Note: Information regarding the rules and content regarding this contest may be altered or changed during the course of the contest so keep your eye's peeled to this thread.

Good luck...


Tips, Hints, Tactics and Advice:
Once your completed your entry, PM me the final product. All the best animations will go on the frontpage of Stickpage.com regardless if you win a cash prize or not. Once again we will release one animation a day leading up to the first place winner. Do not submit your animation to any other site until it has been released on Stickpage.com!

Tip: Do not show your animation to anyone but me prior to the animation being released on Stickpage.com! More times then not I will find out if your animation has been shown to other members because nobody in this community can keep there mouth shut for 2 seconds regarding a secret. If I find out you been whoring your secret contest entry out then you'll know why I called this a tip.

Tip: If your going to do credits at the end of your animation. Make sure you slow the text down so people can actually read it. It's ridiculous the amount of rolling text credits that speed by at 100 miles per hour making it impossible to read. There's no point in having credits if people can't read them.

Tip: If your not going to finish, if your animating habits show a distinct history of never finishing anything then be a man and bow out now and give someone else a chance to compete. All these themes were selected because there great games. If you hold a popular theme and then don't finish then your a little girl and will be made fun of for being a pansy little girl on this forum. I may even sticky the thread for added embarrassment. Followed by a ban...

Hint: For those of you worried about the length of time you have to complete this project. I may extend the time depending on the number of people finished by the due date. Note, maybe...

Tactics: I hear a lot of people complaining about the 3 minutes of actual animation. Look people, although a full 3 minutes of crazy fighting would be wicked. You don't have to make the full 3 minutes action packed. Like take some time to add a storyline. You can easily make a riveting action packed animation if you have your characters do some talking back and forth which will be easier to animate and take less time then action scenes. Plus giving your animation some story will make the action scenes mean more.

Remember how crazy it was when Luke battled with Vader in episode 5? Now imagine you didn't know anything about Star Wars and you turned on the movie as soon as that battle took place. Now imagine your movie was a Mongolian subtitled remake and your subtitles on your T.V. were broken and you never herd Vader tell Luke that he's his Father. Now how crazy wicked is that battle? Check and mate people, check and mate!

Advice: Don't suck!

Would my style be considered "stick"?

If so, then Metroid.
2nd preference, Hitman.

I could MAYBE do normal sticks, but, you know, meh...
No, you can't enter with your style...

ZuLu
05-05-2008, 04:23 PM
It doesn't have to be rpg style right T_T I can just make them move normal and attack. like in ff12. Probably, just making sure.
That's correct, you can do it like any of the games under the series of FF.

Assasins Creed for me please.
Aren't you the kid who was making a mania in Pivot because he didn't have the money for Flash? I'm pretty sure this contest is exclusive to Flash users due to the guidelines Zulu gave and the fact that this is going on Stickpage.com.

Oh, and Zewlz, I wanted to clarify something. This is the style of stick figures I wanted to implement in my animation:
http://img253.imageshack.us/img253/3797/stickar5.png

As you can see, it implements a the use of fullbody, but still retains the stick figure look. I just wanted to make sure I can use this for my animation.

ZuLu

This is a Flash contest, if your going to code in flash then let me know and i'll put you in. But no pivot...

If we are limited and someone vetos my Castlevania choice, I choose Metroid.
So everybody else knows, don't list your veto choice until your selection is actually vetoed cause I won't remember.


I choose Dig-Dug
Dig-Dug is not an option so Castlevania it is...


Can you put Portal up on the list for me ZuLu?
Unless someone already chose it.
Sure I'll give ya Portal, only because your meh bro...


NONONO I still stay with final fantasy. Devil is awesome, but Im not sure. There both kinda the same style when it comes to sticks tho. but I wanna keep final fantasy plz =]

This contest is closed to newbs sorry. You'll have to be a member or at least prove your animating skill prior to entry into this contest.


DMC is looking pretty tempting. throw GOD HAND on the list and I'd enter in a heartbeat.
I don't think I've even ever herd of GOD HAND. I can only give game options that are popular. DMC is yours if you want it...

I'm having an introduction, and that's not included with the total counted amount of time? Like if my animation is 2:59 and my intro is 30 seconds, it doesn't matter? Just clarifying here. I want to be absolutely sure with everything before I begin.

Do you prefer top left or top right corner with the stickpage link?

We must stick to the concept on the game and none else? Castlevania has multiple games in the series, so may we blend some things in together in each game or keep one single game concept?

3 minutes of animation not including intros and menus. If your animation is 2:59 I'm not gonna disqualify you but there will be a limit to how far I will stretch that.


Do you prefer top left or top right corner with the stickpage link?
I don't care, either or...

Yes as I explained in my first post. You can blend all the games together or focus on one. As long as it's within a Casltevania theme I don't care...


God of war.
I've been animating with blades since i started.
I'll need some proof of your animation skill with flash...

Bahh, first serious animation in several months, not to mention, if completed, my longest ever.

Good luck to all of you, this should really bring out the community in several ways.

And kudos to Zulu for this, you sure are throwing out a lot of money for this site, lots of members take it for granted, too.

Miccool
05-05-2008, 07:02 PM
I actually recommend changing it to 2 minutes for several reasons.


1. Quality over quantity - It might definitely cause people to rush instead of taking their time.

2. Previous contest - with 5 weeks, the longest submission (mine) was only around 1:20 mins.

3. Exams/school - It's nearing the end of school which means people will have to spend more time studying and doing homework.

4. Most people can't animate more than 1 minute before quitting.


Well, this is just a suggestion. It's up to you. But there's my opinion.

05-05-2008, 07:10 PM
Damn it Zulu, why would you go and make me want to animate again?

Bah.. Gruh... Zfff...


Is there a "limit" to when someone can joing? I gotta think about it.

I have a question, is it LEGAL to be doing this for cash? Because I'm pretty sure that alot of the characters [and logos] are copyrighted... Do we need to put a disclaimer or something to avoid legal issues? I normally wouldn't worry about it but I remember hearing somewhere that its OK to use copyrighted characters so long as you aren't using them for profit. And I think that winning this competition would be considered profit... -_-
I think we don't have to worry about any of that. Zulu and CJ are in charge of Stickpage.com so they're the ones who deal with copyrights.

And also, Zulu, I noticed you said in the rules that we aren't allowed to include any adult themes. How exactly am I to make a Grand Theft Auto animation without adult themes, though? Even the name of the game is essentially an adult theme. I think you may need to clarify on that rule a bit.

wow this is soo gay.

every good animator that NEVER comes to this site just visited so they could win


:Spiderman: :Spiderman: :Spiderman:

You better not be talking about me boy.

Also, I think Jazz is a pretty good animator so he should have it after calling it first. There are a lot of good choices left though, so idk.

Spazz, he means pornographic/sexual content. You can probably exclude that.

you got it...


And kudos to Zulu for this, you sure are throwing out a lot of money for this site, lots of members take it for granted, too.
Hopefully people start seeing that we care about the community and we want you guys to get more involved with animating and making big projects. But sometimes it's best to have a little motivation...


This'll be tough seeing as we have to do at least 3 mins of actual animation. Most of the entries last time were barely even a minute, not counting the ones that didn't finish. And we had 5 weeks to do that one..
I'll think about the time. I may make a change to it being 3 minutes or give you guys longer. we'll see...


Damn it Zulu, why would you go and make me want to animate again?

Bah.. Gruh... Zfff...


Is there a "limit" to when someone can joing? I gotta think about it.
No limit but if you want to complete it you should decide soon. I really would love for you to enter. This site needs some Fr0zEn shoved down there Ph0eNiX...


STREET FIGHTER!!! STREET FIGHTERRRR!!!!
Already taken, choose something else...


And I promise to finish an animation. Last time I didn't was because the theme was kinda boring and I didn't have time. I'll bust my ass for this one, no doubt.
you better...


I'll take god of war.
k, done


give me... diablo... (Blizzard's game right? with baal and mephisto rite?!?)
Right!


wait wait wait, i can veto someone?
what if i want sonic?
You got Sonic


Zulu, I noticed you said in the rules that we aren't allowed to include any adult themes. How exactly am I to make a Grand Theft Auto animation without adult themes, though? Even the name of the game is essentially an adult theme. I think you may need to clarify on that rule a bit.
Adult themes is nudity or explicit sexuality. You can still put girls in bikini's and stuff but no nipple. Get it...


Can I pick Super Smash Bros since stone took Sonic? =P
Super Smash Brothers would be Mario and that's already taken...

The SPP contest is the creation of a genius. Good luck to everyone !

05-06-2008, 07:03 AM
Ok, heres some "art" to look at...:Oh No!:

thats just gonna get you immediately disqualified from the contest :p
you need to show some decent animations.

i would have loved to animate for this but exams>animation. even if it does possibly mean i'll miss out on a prize, but still i dont think i'd rank in the top 7 anyway. but i gotta do studying and stuff for them.
also the fact that there is only 1 game i wouldve wanted to do and its taken, and that it needs to be 3 minutes and theres only 4 weeks to do it would also make it hard...but the main thing is exams. not like anyone cares but i just thought i'd say why i cant enter

anyway theres gonna be a hell load of awesome animations for this, i cant wait for it to finish. good luck everyone.

if theres an SP competition over august that would be awesome, summer, everyone off school, no pressures, lots of time to animate...just a thought :p

Thats probably because you have to finish first Bubble. At least thats what I heard, or something.

and wow, everyone is complaining about 3 minutes. but its for alot of money tho, 100 bucks for 3 minutes is a pretty good deal =P I guess. only tha time D:

Tetris ? For me ?
Tetris is not an option...


Hmm that 3 minutes rule is pretty off putting if it was something like 2 mins then it may be do able but any how....
I'll try to figure something out. 3 Minutes is pretty much a must. However I may give people more time depending on how everyones doing closer to the due date.


wow everythings been taken pretty quickly.....umm ill have gears of war if its not been taken =3
You got it...


btw.....[not to sound like a jew or anything].....but i never recieved the money for the first competition =[
Because I have not received a finished product yet lol. Finish it and I'll send the money...

ZuLu
05-06-2008, 02:03 PM
rather cheesy, Kingdom of hearts ain't that popular of a game. I've added some games but they were all super popular. If you can think of a super popular game that I don't have on the list I'll add it for you but not Kingdom of Hearts...

Yeah, when I here "adult themes" I usually think of stuff you would be more inclined to see in a PG-13 to R rated movie. I didn't think it was discussed sexuality. And when you put "no nudity" in the rules, too, I thought adult themes would be along different subject than that.

Don't worry, I wasn't going to have any newds in there. There were gonna be hookers walking around, but no cootchie.

EDIT: Kingdom Hearts is Disney's excuse for hooking anime fans into Disney, Zulu. Donald Duck and Goofy walk around with some anime guy with really big feet and a girl's name and kill spirits and shit.

I would very much like to join! I am a Mod over at FluidAnims with Stone and after seeing such great work from the first competition im just itching to join.

Here is some example work:

http:// antiup . net/view.php?id=36515204685rhg.swf


http:// antiup . net/view.php?id=44918135757Exercise_wall_jump.swf

Just remove the 3 spaces in each to get the links to work.


If you would let me join i'd like Command and Conquer. I used to play that game all the time (Red Alert 2, to be exact) and making an animation on it would be really fun.

Your in...


I would very much like to join! I am a Mod over at FluidAnims with Stone and after seeing such great work from the first competition im just itching to join.

If you would let me join i'd like Command and Conquer. I used to play that game all the time (Red Alert 2, to be exact) and making an animation on it would be really fun.
Sure thing dude, you got command and conquer...

Read .

Once again we will release one animation a day leading up to the first place winner. Do not submit your animation to any other site until it has been released on Stickpage.com!

Tip: Do not show your animation to anyone but me prior to the animation being released on Stickpage.com! More times then not I will find out if your animation has been shown to other members because nobody in this community can keep there mouth shut for 2 seconds regarding a secret. If I find out you been whoring your secret contest entry out then you'll know why I called this a tip.

so you are saying that we have to make our own sound effects? or we have to use or own music?
You can use other peoples music and sound effects. I would say that it has to be all your own art though.

Wow, there both equally as bad. I mean you both are new to this. Your on the right track, you both got some talent but you need more experience and to hone your skills. On one hand Drifts actual animation is more fluid were as Uppercut is a better artist and actually puts some thought into presentation.

Don't know dudes, gonna take some time to think about this.

First of all I decide what's fair. Second it's not about which one gets the game theme. It's about if I should let either of them even enter. I didn't see a lot in either of those demos that would make me think they'd even have a chance to compete.

Well if you use 24fps, 3mins is only 4320 so if you are doing 500 a day thats 8 and a bit days. Most people will have intro about 250 - 350 frames though. The problem is that people run out of ideas for the 4000 odd frames, not the length.

Yes, but we can't count the intro in the 3 minutes. the intro was done in like a hour or so. Since its just text and some effects. So then I have like 200 frames in 2 days. But I will add some story? maybe a little bit talking, with voice acting. so that it takes less time.

On SL theres a link to a SSBB pack, that might have some sounds from Metroid on it. Or you can get a snes emulator and take the sounds from super Metroid.

or you could do this =P



I got some animating done today, at 360 frames at the moment, minus 3 frames for the preloader, intro and menu [their movieclips]. So I'm roughly 9% done animation wise. If I did my math right... >_>

360 frames = 9%? Howmany Fps do you work on? I work on 28 right now lol. I just realised. Now I need even MORE frames to get to 3 minutes..

Edit: I have 20 Seconds now. 3 minutes = 180 seconds meaning. = 9% I have 600 frames, and darn if I worked on 18 fps, I would have had 31 seconds >_> me and high Frame rates. Its only killing me with time limits. I had to make it smooth D: ARGH THEN I HAD 17% on 18 fps >:C

on 28 Fps I need. 28 x 180 = 5040 frames D: D: D:
Im lowering it to 26. It then = 4680
18 Fps = WTF ONLY 3200 D: D: D:

Edit edit: I just found out that even if I doi 30 Fps, it still goes as fast. I had a moment it just went normal, then i saw how freaking fast it was on only 26 fps

Edit: I freaking wanna quite because of this lag and FPS problem. The movie goes slow, but one part of the movie, GOES FREAKING FAST. even in the swf. But when I take that piece, and open it in a new file. It goes normal =\

You need 4320 =P for 24 Fps.

This really sucks =\ I don't wanna continue, if this problem keeps coming up. When I copy and paste like a certain amount of frames, which has some moves I wanna check out. and paste it in a empty document, it is very smooth. but when I export movie in flash (which takes >:C freaking 5 minutes) Some parts lag, some parts suddenly go freaking fast, then it goes slowmo, then fast. =\ it ruins everything,..

I hope it goesss away D: And yes I must share my problems with you guys <3 M

Ssjbryando
05-11-2008, 11:24 AM
by that do you mean by exporting as a swf? im just wondering so i can see if i know what your problem is...

I don't know =P I mean, when im in flash. instead of pressing enter, to view a movie. I press ctrl + enter. Then a loading thing comes up which says '' Exporting flash movie'' And when I do that, it automaticly makes a Swf file. and there i can watch the movie, Just like it would look when I uploaded it.

But for some reason, sudddenly it really takes 5 minutes to go. mostly in a few seconds its done. 5 minutes of that loading, is also causing lags and problems in time in the swf =\

2500 Posts! im suprised by the small amount of posts I have, since I talk so much. and also, I put the intro in a different scene. it seems to go a bit faster (just pressing enter)

yeah, the ctrl+enter thing was what i was talking about.
i said in your thread that you just gotta deal with it, but i didnt realise that your mouse clicking has a lag when your only 600 frames in. in an animation i'm making, if i have anything else open then my mouse click lags too, so i have to sorta dedicate days to animation when i can. but i'll admit i have a terrible computer so on your good one it shouldnt be so bad. but i do know exactly what you mean, and its annoying as hell, but i really dont know what you can do exept not add sounds till the end.

and i didnt realise i had so many posts, nearly 1000 :p, i have an average of 1 per day so i guess ive been on spp about 989 days :p

oh yeah and my ctrl+enter takes about 4-5 minutes too, i can listen to a whole song before it comes up usually (on my long animation this is). so i just try to do it as little as possible...unless i really wanna see how something looks

Ssjbryando
05-11-2008, 11:42 AM
Good its not only me. But Im only at 600 frames D: but I have a small solution. not for the export thing tho. but I put the intro in a different scene. And now, the clicking goes normal, and the swf doesn't lag. the only thing is probably when im gonna have more frames, its gonna lag again. or I have to put that in a different scene to. I think thats how it works =\

The reason it goes fast then slow is probably because at some parts youve got more filters and that kinda stuff than at others.

Mine does the same. :/
If it is that, then I dont think theres a way of getting around it.

Windows/ other panels / Scenes. the just set the scenes. =3 im gonna work with them to now, I had alot of trouble with the AS with scenes >_> If thats what he ment >_> probably not.

Edit edit: I just found out that even if I doi 30 Fps, it still goes as fast. I had a moment it just went normal, then i saw how freaking fast it was on only 26 fps

Edit: I freaking wanna quite because of this lag and FPS problem. The movie goes slow, but one part of the movie, GOES FREAKING FAST. even in the swf. But when I take that piece, and open it in a new file. It goes normal =\

i suggest adding a preloader?

and bubble, scenes work in order. you can move scenes around to put one infront of the other, and it'll go first. But if you're talking about scene select in a menu, i just add up the frames because they script


on(release){
gotoandplay("NAME OF SCENE", KEY FRAME);
}


sooooo yeah.

if you guys are having lag problems, make a new .fla with the same dimensions and animate in there. you can then import this SCENE into your animation

just cuz i love you.

I hate you zulu lol. why couldn't you wait 2 weeks for making the tread =P
I WANNA FINISH ARGH >:C but I just KNOW I can't make it. tommorow is the last day I can fully animate. then I got school + exam training for the week. Meaning alot of learning. then the week after exams. MEANING I can't animate for probably 2weeks =\ of course I can do small things, like for breaks. but probably only a hour a day. and I need all the time =\

I really wanna finish D: Hope it gets expended, by like 2 weeks <3 Not that It wont. BUT ILL TRY TO FINISH, and get high grades. I got a week after tho. but I use high Fps + minus 2 weeks = FAIL D:

and yeah, He said Pm, me or just show me your skills. you could do both.

I'm going to be gone from the 21st to the 25th, working at an annual convention for my aunt's business. I'm bringing my laptop, but I don't know how much spare time I'll have for animating =\ If I know the convention I'm working at, I'll be swamped with work for that weekend... Luckily thats the only foreseeable hindrance to my animating. Other than my Brothers pissed at me for reasons I don't know, he gave me a solid uppercut to the chest and bruised my right wrist [I'm right handed to >_>] in a short fist fight he started.

EDIT: I know I've said I'm a black belt, and everyone will be like " why didn't you go kungfu on his ass?" and I just want to let you know that hes a black belt to and we used to train together so he knows my weak points and I ended up getting a couple good shots in on him [a kick to the groin and a good kick to the low belly] so its not like he completely owned my ass.

He's been correcting me and giving my some ideas for the animation [he's an anime/Final Fantasy freak so he knows alot about the characters.] So that might slow down production a little, but not to halt...

Yea exams sucks to =\ that i have them. wish it started in the summavacation.

#Rc, Mhm. well probably not, in a fight and square karate tournament. but in a normal battle, With my moves, I can kick ass, and be epic at the same time O_O
lol jk. I guess >_> I don't know. 2 black belts are though ^^ But yeah im epic

/brag = ( so much fun =3)

You are? I never did fullbody, but final fantasy Is FULL of different kindoff creatures, and beasts, and Summons. T_T I really want at least 1 summon in, but with the time and exam probably not. making my first fullbody perfect, might take some time. I will try to add small fullbody creatures tho. first I need to finisn this fight.

@Demon: Yea thats what A (epic animator) said to me = ] think of fighting moves, you do in real life. and animate them, for more moves. Or PLAY TORIBASh.

I haven't done any actual animation yet, I'm still busy doing the graphics.
I vectored an arwing, and I'm doing a landmaster too. Might be a while...
I did some vectoring as well, I had to do the Kingdom Key, two other more complex keyblades [not giving away which ones]. Axel's ring weapons, I also vectored Sora and Axel's Hair...

My bgs are crap lol. But I just wanna finish. I know it gets ATLEAST higher then a 3 on NG. you guys inspired me to do hair D: And yay *copies*

and its 12 yeah. cause

524 / 4320 * 100 = 12.1%

100/ 12 = 8.3.

8.3 * 12.1% = 100,43%

no im not a nerd >:c

Also 1 of your things in your sig = 4% since there are 25. meaning if you had 17% there should be 4! that are collored O_O! OH NO Thx <3
Lol, thats actually not that nerdy where I come from =P And I already worked out the one piece = 4% When it was 17% there were for but now that its 12% theres 3...

When I did a background I chose a simple one to do. I'm doing the place where you fight the final boss in KH2, [its white with dark splotches that move about and a sort of force shield floor] its simple, easy to draw, and no one can say I didn't use an actual place in the game. ^_^

Ssjbryando
05-12-2008, 01:15 PM
Sounds good =\ Im a big fan of KH's. I just played Kingdom hearts 2 again. im so stupid lol, I was playing it day after day. untill fighting the last boss. Armor dude. Together with riku =\ I almost had him as well, 1 more hit and he was dead. But I stopped cause I got a new game for the xbox =P so darn I still need to kill that sucka.

And yea I thought you had 3 but with the 17% =D Sounds good =\ I have nothing special for weapons and looks yet. No official final fantasy place as well.
but I wanna make something big, maybe a big fullbody battle. a fusion or something. but for that I need time. and im short on that, so I might really rush the end like hell.

You're not fit to run a website, and I cannot see how you manage to live. An asshole like yourself couldn't possibly have a god job, unless you're one of those people who like to get on the internet and piss kids off.

Don't bother replying, delete it, ban me, whatever dumb ass immature piece of shit thing you're going to do. I could care less at this point. I hope you get run over by a truck or get ****ing cancer, it will help the world to be rid of the pricks that are aiding in society's downfall.

I'm going to have Sora start with the kingdom key, then sometime in the battle he will switch to a form [don't which one yet, probably valor.] and he'll have Oath Keeper and Oblivion then.

Rather, maybe that scythe from.. uhm.. what was his name.. forgot it, something flower'ish scythe.

I'm not using the Disney characters, only those specific to the game [sora, riku, kairi, axel, ansem, etc.] And I think its just going to be a battle between Sora and Axel, except Axel is going to be given control over Heartless as well as nobodys either that or the heartless will fight both of them while their fighting each other. I haven't fully decided yet.

Edit; I have no clue whose scythe you're talking about. I still haven't beaten KH2, and but I know most of the story line because I've seen my brother beat it and thats where I'm getting a lot of suggestions/corrections/omgdothat! from.

Yes, I'm aware that I will be using some elses resource.. That's why I'm asking -_-

I can't just trace an angled object cause I'm gonna have it rotate. But it's only a 3d gun that I'll be using.. It's not like it's gonna make a big difference. But I'll be in some trouble if I can't use it.
My official answer on the whole tracing thing and using other resources is that the winners will be decided on entertainment and wow factor versus animating skill. I'll go with the out of sight out of mind statement and simply say don't tell me how you did it, just do it. Having someone else help you make the animation by doing work for you is an absolute no no though...

Tman, you freaking animate so fast. I have been working on it since I got in all those days , and I have about 700 frames. im really slow at animating :| I need to learn how to rush more.


Lmao, i animate so slow. that's why i've been trying to animate around 10 to 20 seconds a day, and I have accomplished that so far. And no, you don't need to learn how to rush >_> rushhing is badddd

and @aznbud
That was from scene 1 >_> i'm a 1000 frames ahead of that right now lmao.

ITS ALL ABOUT HOW YOU FEEL INSIDE BABY! (not gay >_< ) And I know not rushed but I ment to say, the longer you animate the faster you do the moves and stuff. I spend so much time on it.

YOU THINK 10-20 SECONDS A DAY IS SLOW? then your finished in. 20x9. Your done in 9 days. then you still have 2.8 weeks left =P meaning your very fast.

i dont think he thinks 20 seconds per day is slow, he's saying he animates slow so in order to combat that he needs to work hard to get 10-20 seconds per day. it probably takes him a while.

I know I know lol. I MENT. The more you animate (the more years) The faster you can perform moves. Because EG: some moves you have already done so many times, you just know exactly how to make them move, instead of redoing the same move over alot of times =p thats what I ment.

I know rushing is bad. but tha god terkoiz said, Learn to rush cause it will help you later, and make you perform moves faster! =D

Hey Zulu, in terms of the "no foul language" rule, does that count towards lyrics in a song, too?

yup.................
How foul is foul language? Are words like damn and hell allowed and the only banned words are the more offensive ones like sh- and the f word? or is it all foul language banned? and you have to replace them with either bleeps or in the case of text *&#$?

AND

Is hell allowed to be used if its in context, like "We must fight our way into hell to fight satan!"

AND

is using Gods or Jesus' name in vain considered foul? cause I know some people who consider it to be worse than the f word and others who don't consider it foul at all.

btw, ssjb, a good way to rush but rush well is by listening to music. for some reason i feel like i don't need to look over what i've already animated. which wouldn't be considered rushing. MUSIC DOES THAT. but w/e that could be complete bs...

What kind of music do you listen to while animating? I imagine certain types of songs seem to work better for you than others...

Zulu, those of us that are animating in this competition from FA are wondering your view on allowing us using some recognition for our site. It is our work, you get all the links, logos and introductions that you ask for but we still have a right to a credit our own site in some shape or form, link, intro of our own put after stickpages' and or a fluidanims preloader. Nothing of which stickpage would be lacking any of its links, logos or for the most part discouraging the clicks from stickpage.

I've spoke with jay before and this was always something that was agreed upon whenever we ever had something sponsored. It seems, in short a waste of our work to spend all this time on a 3+ min animation and not be able to credit our own site you know?

I just want this to be clear and answered upon so there isn't a penalty set on us.

Isn't it your site, and not you, who gets the credits, then? In a Stickpage.com Contest? Your site contributed nothing to the animation. I suppose "By Stone from Fluidanims.com" would be good, but advertising another site in a contest meant for a contest on a competing site through preloader or ad isn't really honorable, or well mannered.

It's also not a waste if you win, and get money (which I'm sure you will, Stone -.-), enjoyed doing it, have the portfolio, and the freedom to post it on YOUR OWN dayum site.

But that's just my view... Of course I only felt I must express it uselessly as my opinion has no sway in this matter, being Zulu's choice, I just feel advertising on a competing forum through a contest isn't right. 3:
