View Full Version : my FIRST big pivot project. (update)

I know that this should be on "upcoming works in progress", but I thought I would post it her first.

I am going to be making my first full length-ish anim! The title is, "Revenge" and the topic is murder. This animation's scenes will be put together with Windows Movie Maker as it is distributed in different anims in every bg change.

I will be needing help on this for the various scenes and parts in this anim and will be accepting Stykz animators as well!
(STYKZ animators can send their STYKZ animations to me by E-mail) (pivot users can PM me)
EDIT: I will also send you the link for the figure that I am using

Story line starts off with your typical everyday murder. The room is dark and a mysterious figure walks forward in the dark of night. As he continues on he pulls out a knife and continues walking. He is walking toward a door and when he opens it, there is the victim in her bed sleeping. It shows a picture of the victim on the wall, then the whole scene fades white. It fades back out to show cop cars outside a house. Inside a man is crying, for the victim was his wife. He suddenly gets up, and filled with anger runs out into the streets.

The rest is pretty much him finding the band of murderers and fighting them off until finally getting to the murderer who killed his wife.

Here is a screen shot of the murderer creeping up in the dark:

UPDATE: the starting scene is complete :)

I have very, VERY little done. I just couldnt wait to post this, sorry :P.


How do I join?:
Just comment below if you are interested, then I will put you on the interested people list. After this, PM me an anim of yours to show your ability, and if you are of my animation abilities or higher, I will reply with the scene you will work on and a bg that you will put in it.

There will be more than one scene assigned to each person.

thank you all. you all are in since I have seen your work.

Garbear, are u going to use pivot or STYKZ?

Almost all the bg's are going to be made with paint and will be saved as JPEG's so they are compatible with pivot

Stykz.

You can make it look better by creating a seperate file with the actual bg in it,
save it as a bmp, and load it as a background. Looks better and still has onion
skin.

Also, we are just animating the man going out killing murderers? I don't think
anyone would want to see the same beginning scene over and over.

EDIT: ohhh ok I see what you mean. I will do that for the rest of the bg's, THANK YOU!

and also no, once all the scenes are made and the anims are sent to me, I will save each anim as seperate images and then puting them in order from beginning to end with sfx if possible and some music, possibly. unless someone else is willing to do this

that is the answer to the question if thats what you meant by it

EDIT: here is a small example of three different anims put together:

so "him" is somebody's wife? seems legit. anyway, i'm interested on helping, but i won't be able to for a little while because i'm working currently on a different pivot anim.

ok, 270 is already doing the first part, so I will give you the second.

And guys, what do you guys think about the beginning? I am in doubt about it just a little, it dosnt look correct XP

night avenger

The beginning? It's perfect!
I think that blood splat should splat on the picture when she gets killed.

What do you need me to animate?

Stickly
12-25-2012, 04:44 PM
What do you need me to animate?

right now this is how it stands:

270: finds base, fights two gaurds, goes inside.

Garbear: after finding out his wife was murdered, runs to base in search of the murderers

77row: fight scene in base

Night avenger: scenes leading up to 270's

Stickly: beginning, FINISHED. maybe also boss fight..

Pivot: ???

am i missing anyone? anyway, you could do one of the fight scenes pivot :)

Pivot
12-25-2012, 04:57 PM
Maybe I could do the boss fight? You've got the beginning, 270 has the base and 2 guards, Garbear's got the search for the murderers, 77's got the fight scene in the base, Night's got the buildup, and I could cover the boss. Then we all get a part.

Just a suggestion, though.

night avenger
12-25-2012, 05:43 PM
Am I supposed to wait 'till you give me the stuff or am I supposed to work on it?
Are they separate .pivs or is it like a joint?

Am I supposed to wait 'till you give me the stuff or am I supposed to work on it?

seperate pivots. I will put them all together when every part is finished. And please do wait, I am still waiting for 270 to finish, then you can go right ahead :).

Just a suggestion, though.

if you really feel you can pull it off, then that is yours to animate! :)
It will be tough though, the boss is actually the one who kills his wife, so the boss will have to use knives.

Why dont we both make are own? then we can vote on witch one to choose. nothing competitive, its just that the ending will be the greatest part.
I will PM you the figure we are using and anything else you might need, as well as a bg if you are not up to making your own.

phew, running this thing is harder than i anticipated XD.

hey um for the fight in the base the backround you tryed to send me was like during the day and for my animation (almost done) the backround is all grey and i have a part where there is no backround really so i hope it works out and for the boss fight it should be like night time so the animations feel like they fit together

lol you have one of the fight scenes after 270's. The main character runs into the room and can defeat how ever many murderers you would like, this scene is before he reaches the boss. I can send you a bg if you would like, and the figure we are using if i havnt yet.
