-A long guide to a decent RHG-

Ok, so over the past few months, I have been scavenging the RHG section and noticed.....very odd RHG's.
So, I am here to hopefully help you all improve or make your RHG better.

The RHG system (I believe) was created by my good friend Travis (Stone) Steven. It stands for Rock-Hard Gladiator. And in this system, somebody creates a fictional character in which they battle others with. Now, this character is supposed to have limitations, abilities, and a story and bla-bla-bla. Now, what do you do with that character? Challenge or receive challenges from others and duke it out with your RHG's. This is an animation contest, and after you are both done, you make the poll and post it in the battle zone and that good stuff. So now, we go to the main problem, bogus RHG's. (I am not saying mine is any better) As I have stated before, I have seen many RHG's with rather not enough information or just not complete. And the worst case, just stupid. So, let’s break down each part to help you young children have a good RHG and so people find it attractive and noticeable too.

Ideas for the RHG:
The most critical part of the RHG, itself. In this, we talk about thinking of an original RHG and making sure you can animate it. First of all, I would look through old RHG's, to make sure your Idea hasn't been taken. And if it has, you can change a few bits of it to make it seem different. Next, you don't want to make an RHG you can't animate. That’s horrible. But to some extent, you don't want to animate something below your level. Remember, the RHG system is a way to also make you become a better animator. But don't try something that's obviously out of your league. Take it in strides, and make sure it makes you happy. Think about your RHG idea for a while also. Try to screw in uncertain parts or places you think don't make sense before you decide to finalize it. Think about the overall feel you want your RHG to convey, so people get exactly what you’re talking about. The RHG has to suit you, and to some point, if people bash it, defend your RHG. Don't feel bad about an idea you think is good. But, you should also realize when your idea is just plain dubious and stupid. In which you should change it to avoid humiliation. As Pin said to me on Infinity Strikers clan page, (I quote)’ being original isn't making up something, it is taking what you got and working with it’. So don't go shitting in your mouth if you can’t think of an RHG, you can combine other ideas into one.

Pictures:(none of the programs I have listed here are free, expect paint.cuz it sucks like sarari ;)
Now, this is the picture for your RHG, as you may already know, it has to be 150 x 150. And for it to work, you have to use the 'img' BB code. Anyways, recently, I have been seeing very poorly drawn pictures, or bad quality pictures and even no pictures. So let’s asses this, first of all, if you feel as if you cannot draw a good enough picture, request somebody to draw it for you. And if you can't do that, just hold off in posting the thread until you have a decent one. Now, if you intend on making it yourself, MS paint is the worst thing you could draw it on. It’s just a horrible Idea, because (I believe) it’s a bitmap based drawing system instead of Vector, so pictures come out pixelated and choppy. Also, overall, it doesn't have many features, (you can't even make gradients in it lol) so it’s not really a good choice. If you don't want to use flash, you can use SAI, which is something that can deliver high quality work if you practice with it.If you have experience with SAI, then you should probably use it.Now, we end up at flash which is the most preferable for pictures. It delivers a standard quality of media and is very convenient. Its outlook is very simplistic and is easy to use. This is the best place to draw your pictures in if you are a beginner. Now, we go into a bit of photography practice here. The rule of thirds, it’s very simple. A picture is cut up into 9 equal boxes, 3 x 3. And there are lateral lines- the ones that are vertical. Now, usually, if the picture has a single focus, it is best to place it on the far lateral lines. But, in most cases, just put it in the middle one. And the headroom, you should make sure your RHG characters forehead or hair is not cut off from the picture. You should have at least a centimeter of space in between the edge and your characters scalp. Your RHG picture doesn't always have to be in a flashy position or show-case its abilities or weaponry too.

Abilities:
This doesn't have to be a paragraph; it can be bullets of your RHG's powers. But make sure you write with clarity and your ideas are understandable. It should list your RHG's weapons as well, and can even have more than their physical advantages. You could say, he has a way with words, or a sense of humor. He is smart, or stupid.
Now, we go into the meat. An RHG also revolves around what he can do; your powers don’t necessarily have to be flashy or weird. Like it doesn't have to have a demon form or some other sci-fi stuff (nobody has a problem with that if your RHG does). For example, Hyun's RHG, the guy is a freaking teenage stick man who has a Yo-yo as his weapon. So casual yet unique, but again, make sure it’s something you can animate. Your RHG' could control like paper or water or something like that. But beware; a lot of weapons have already been abused too much. And the same for elemental powers

Weaknesses:
As Pin said in his live stream today, your weaknesses should be relevant to your RHG's powers. And not some random objects or things that make no sense. Like saying his weakness is a banana when his RHG has a sword. Make sure to read over your RHG's abilities to make sure there are no contradictions and miss-haps so people don’t interpret the wrong thing. Also, you could tie in your plot or story of your RHG to he/she's weaknesses or abilities. You could also say that their weapon could break and stuff like that. Putting your RHG has human weaknesses is actually very good. Because that tells the viewer what to expect when they battle you.You could also say they have a short temper or has hard time making decisions. Listing habits or practices that distract them would be interesting too.

Story:
The story of your RHG, now, if I were you, if you don’t have a sufficient enough understanding of the English language, it would probably be preferable that you ask somebody to make your story for you if you give them the overall Idea and a bit of details of your story. Grammar is so important here I can’t stress it enough. Making sure your story has no contradictions and is clear and coherent is critical to a good story. Also, your RHG battles could tie in with helping define your story more. Like what Op34 is doing at the moment. But you don't want to abuse that; people might think you’re a leech. Anyways, making long stories doesn't always mean they are good. What you want in this is the viewer to get the overall feel and main point of your RHG's back story or views. It could include age, and maybe a bit of direct or indirect characterization. It could be set in sections and updated with RHG battles as I have said before. But, make sure your viewers know there is more to be added by using good wording and ideas. And like stone said in the "Staring your RHG", be creative with it. You could say your character was a former gangster in Tokyo or some Alien. If I were you, I would look at other RHG's to help construct your story. Now, don't get the wrong idea and steal people Idea's. But you can integrate their story, into yours. Like "Pulse's" RHG, he has a very interesting story. And its long, but you can understand it perfectly like it was an excerpt from a book. That is an example of a quality story. Finally, remember, you can hold off a story you thought of that's really good, but you lack the skill to make the RHG for it. You can wait until you are better animator and try it. But remember, a lot of this has to do with setting personal goals, and achieving them over time.

Demo/RHG battling:
Do not make a RHG if you are really bad at animating or just don't know how to at all yet.If you do something stupid, the mods have a present for you.
Ok the last part. Anyways, if I were a beginner to animation, I would refrain from making an RHG, because nobody will want to challenge you if your demo is just awful. I remember when I used to be on Sketch Star (yeah, that animation website,[I was Maplestary]), that was.......2 years ago. I have been animating for not that long. But I came to the point where I could make a decent animation in which people could understand the movements in it and it didn't look TOO choppy. Also, your demo doesn't have to show case all your powers, but, you don’t want to make it too short and sad. I would have one with sounds, at least 10 seconds, and have decent reactions and a good amount of moves. Like Guz's RHG. (No, you don’t have to animate that good.)And you could say a better animation coming soon. Now, let’s remember here that you will challenge and face others. So if you are so horrible at animating and someone way better than you challenge you that would be a pretty bad situation. But before you make the thread, make sure you HAVE A DEMO. It really helps that you do. Take all your time on your RHG battle. Maybe up to round 4 of BSE is the farthest you should go if you want to have a good focus on your RHG battle.

Style of the Thread (thanks to Xero)
"Mix and match available settings in the tool bar above your post box for a more desired outcome. Using fonts and Colors create variety, and keep the viewer interested in your thread. Naturally the viewer will be enthralled more or less by organizational patterns you've set up, and will be obliged to keep their interest on your thread."-Xero
This way, people actually look at your whole thread before they bail out. So they now know all there is need to know about your RHG.

I think the rest is self-explanatory. So I hope this helped! I know it states a lot of common info, but I thought it would be better if it were written down. I give thanks to everybody who has commented on this thread and has helped me better develop this guide.

(This Guide is always changing, post a comment for any mistakes I have made and/or how to make this thread more clear and helpful)

Something i hate is when they put weakness that aren't weakness. Like "Normal human weakness". That's not a weakness if your RHG have "super speed" or "super agile" or "martial arts expert", because with those abilities, it easy to dodge hits, so that weakness become irrelevant. You know what i mean? ._.

Good guide. Although I recommend putting example, existing RHGs that prove the guides point on what to do.

It just actually means that the RHG can be killed like a normal human can be, even if he's super-fast or agile he can still die by getting hit in critical parts, or any way similar to how a normal human dies.

This guide is decent for what it's worth, but there are flaws that should be taken into consideration.

Some examples like you're advice on how to make your page attractive are lacking.

"Make it different fonts and colors and stuff."

As opposed to:
"Mix and match available settings in the tool bar above your post box for a more desired outcome. Using fonts and Colors create variety, and keep the viewer interested in your thread. Naturally the viewer will be enthralled more or less by organizational patterns you've set up, and will be obliged to keep their interest on your thread."

See what I did there? Before making a guide, make sure your literacy skills are up to code, and you don't end up making a huge wall of text.
That's not pleasing to the eye, and drives the reader away.

If I were you, I'd take time into remaking this; If you're requesting this to be stickied, it should be able to serve the masses more easily.

Love the Idea of this thread, even though i find it might be a little pointless, but may help out some newcomers (even though im new-ish)


Next, you don't want to make an RHG you can't animate. Thats horrible. You should only make one if you can animate it and it makes you happy.

This although, is something i don't like. I have an RHG, i made it as soon as i started animating (about to delete it actually) and i made it with a power that was far too hard to animate at my level, although i stuck with it, trying to find new ways to animate it all, and make it a lot easier/faster to animate, i loved the idea of my rhg, and the only problem was the animation, but even so, i tried.... you shouldn't let some1 give up before they try... if they create an RHG that they cannot animate yet, they will try and learn how to, which in fact will get them improving in more ways than one..

the only reason im not following the advice i just said, is because i like the new rhg i've come up with (more about the story and thought of it, rather than the abilities).

12-25-2012, 02:56 AM
Dude, It's an animating thing, if you can't animate it and you love the story and abilities that much then save the entire concept, and practice a lot. eventually You'll become really good at whatever it is you need to be good at to animate it and you'll be able to bring back that Idea you likes so much.
Woah look at all dem commas.

If you want this to be "stickied" put it into Microsoft word and fix up your grammar. Some full stops don't have spaces after them and some sentences don't make much sense. Overall, this is a great guide. It covers most if not everything that a gladiator needs and doesn't.

12-25-2012, 09:40 AM
Though, there might be some things that are beyond to your animation skills, why don't you give it a try and practice before making the RHG?
Even at least a bit of improvement will serve something big for your gladiator, something original no one has ever seen before.

I tried making something like this too, though it was on DA and all about "How to Create You Own Original Weapon". Since it's my main problem since I started.
Here it is if you want to check it out (there might be some flaws but hey, few watches my Journal, lol):

Yes, but with "weakness", it means a weakness to his ability. and every RHG can be killed like any other human, otherwise, they would be inmortal .-.

That's not a weakness if your RHG have "super speed" or "super agile" or "martial arts expert", because with those abilities, it easy to dodge hits, so that weakness become irrelevant. You know what i mean? ._.

Human is a very good weakness actually. With all these RHG's with large swords, or hammers, energy blast, with the RHG being human, you know that they aren't going to be able to take high impact etc. It For rhg's with Speed, Agile, Martial arts, that's a fine weakness, a human doesn't have weakness unless it's an injury. If the RHG has several powers then it should have more weaknesses, but with a small one like, High stregnth, or speed, or can fight, then its fine. My RHG has speed, and a weapon. his weakness is he's human, that is legitimate because that means that Fire is a weakness, Lightning is a weakness, He can drown, he can be squashed, he has blood, he can freeze, as a human he has no immunities to powers, you guys underthink the human weakness.

ORIGINALITY IS NOT NEEDED! Animate what your are comfortable with, end of story, just don't completely rip off someone elses character.

You don't need a long story, use your story more to clearify powers and weaknesses and give a personality to your character.

Demo: Dont put up bullshit animations, atleast make a animation demonstrating all of your powers, not just a random animation.


Yes, but with "weakness", it means a weakness to his ability. and every RHG can be killed like any other human, otherwise, they would be inmortal .-.

Again, being human, in the world of RHG IS a weakness. And there are immortals in RHG, it doesnt make them impossible, and if the character isnt human, and is another species, then it may have advantages to being in certain circumstances. In RHG, we are filled with super powered people, weapon people, all sorts of different things, being a himan, a ordinary person, means that you dont have any more than your powers.

What about those who kept changing their RHGs? i dont know what others may think but for me, i feel like the RHG system is kind of worthless when people changed their RHGs too many times, i mean it's just like
making their RHGs worthless and so the RHG sysem too, i think we should try to keep people away from doing that if possible or maybe make a rule that a user may only change his/her RHG 5 times only and whoever change it more than that will idk, get in trouble or something, just do something to prevent it cuz i feel like it's really bad for the RHG system if these people dont stop, which i know they won't but yeah if it's possible we should, because like i said before, it's really worthless to change RHG that many times, which as a result is also considered as not a very decent RHG, so yeah i would suggest this too if you can :)

I don't think it hurts the system... When someone wants to create a new RHG, they just delete the old one and post the new one. People changes their RHG because they want to find the one that's more suited to their animations, but at the same time, that's cool for them.

Download a trial for macromedia flash or get the new pivot.
From there you can practice animation and be able to create a demo.
You can also request a picture from here: http://forums.stickpage.com/showthread.php?36059-Zaix-s-Art-shop!-(Looking-for-artists!) or I could help you with it ;D

So let’s asses this, first of all, if you feel as if you cannot draw a good enough picture, request somebody to draw it for you.

This is the funniest typo I have ever seen XD
It's assess.


Yes, but with "weakness", it means a weakness to his ability. and every RHG can be killed like any other human, otherwise, they would be inmortal .-.

My RHG is immortal. But not to pain. Even if an RHG was invincible to that stuff, the opposing RHG could just pin him down with a blade or by bringing the environment down on his face or something. Immortality doesn't mean he/she can stop ANYTHING that goes his/her way.


Unless you go to wRHG section, you just need to write. I guess.

wRHG doesn't have much to do with RHG, other than the fact that they use similar systems. You shouldn't go there ONLY because you can't animate, or you're going to quickly get bored with writing and your wRHG will be twiddling his/her thumbs for centuries to come.

i have come up with my RHG soldiers, would any artists care to help make them into existance

hyde is a giant beast, his coloring is dark blue with a single bloodshot eye and corroded teeth, the beast is 3 times the size of a normal stick figure, with three weaknesses, its eye, its back, and the fact that its incredibly slow on movement speed. hit the eye it not only loses vision for a while but it cant cast some spells it has, once your character is on its back consider yourself the victor and just repeatedly stab the beast till he dies

abilities:
basic strength: since hyde is a giant, he has large muscles making him incredibly strong
laser eye: the giant can send out a focused beam out of the single eye he has
earthquake: the giant smashes the ground, sending cracks throughout the ground and rumbling the entire area
minion spawn: the giant can cast 3 small minions that are not only incredibly weak but incredibly dumb, they can be cast rapidly and are meant for cannon fodder
regeneration: the giant regenerates health over time and must not be left alone for long periods of time


jackel is a cannibalistic animal-like human, he is regular size and is colored dark red, he is paired up with hyde as they attempt to defeat all RHG characters, he has 2 weaknesses, silver weaponry and fire.

abilities:
weakness: jackel knows his enemies weak spots and strikes at the spot
dark descent: jackel casts a small spell that blocks the light of day, making the whole area pitch black, only light will allow the enemy to see (hyde can see in the dark too)
incredible speed: jackel due to being part animal has incredible animal speed
razor claws: jackels razor claws allow him to cut through unarmored enemies without trouble
sharp teeth: jackels sharp teeth allow him to bite through thick enemy armors


peace is a turquoise colored human, he is a bit smaller than regular stick figures and is floating in the air and is sitting as if he was meditating, he is paired up with jackel and hyde for the same goal, he has 3 weaknesses darkness and spinal attacks, he is young but his spine is extremely fragile and if it takes one hit he is instantly brought down, and if any dark magic is casted directly towards him he fades into oblivion (force field or no force field, this does not include jackels darkness abililty, peace can see in the dark just like jackel and hyde)

abilities: (while floating and meditating)
force field: peace has a force field around him that can be destroyed by any damage taken, once gone peace stands up and fights (ironically enough)
ice spike: peace rapidly fires ice shards at the enemy, its a basic magical attack
heal: peace can heal all wounds on jackel and hyde instantly, but can only be used once
lightning bolt: a lighting bolt instantly strikes the enemy, can only be cast once and can be dodged if the enemy is fast enough

abilities: (while standing and without his force field)
martial arts expert: peace is an expert at martial arts and can handle any situation
speed: peace is faster than the regular person, hes not faster than jackel though
knowledge: peace is quite knowledgeable about his surroundings and uses them to his advantage

all three of these soldiers compete TOGETHER and each need eachother in a certain level (examples, peace needs jackel and hyde to protect him while meditating and casting spells, jackel needs hyde to back him up while fighting, hyde needs jackel to help keep enemies off his back)

I don't believe you can have multiple RHGs. Also, can you try animating one of them?

Well, it would be best for you to add weaknesses so that they have about the same strength as one RHG, and make sure they compliment each other and amplify/lessen under certain circumstances (like the defeat of one of the members). There are exceptions, it's just that usually having 2 RHGs would be overpowered. A trio for a team is kind of stretch it, though, you'd have to animate four stickmen at once and that's pretty insane if you're a beginner.

hyde the giant's weakness is if anybody hits his eye he loses the spells that come with it for a short while (minions and laser beam)
hyde needs jackel to help him keep the enemies off his back since he cant reach there
hyde needs peace to back up his laser beam and his minions using the light guardian he has
jackels weaknesses are fire at silver weaponry, if any silver weapon hits him he vanishes to oblivion, and he becomes weakened when fire hits him
jackel needs hyde to even out his somewhat weak attacks with hydes extremely strong regular attacks
jackel needs peace to heal his wounds and back jackel up with his ranged spells
peaces weakness is dark magic and spinal attacks, if anything hits his spine when he isnt in the protective force field, he instantly dies, and if dark magic hits him, he fades to oblivion. peaces weaknesses are the most common in enemy attacks
peace needs jackel to hold enemies back
peace needs hyde to defend peace as he casts spells



like every person in RHG i need to learn. i hope help will come to make this trio exist

if one character dies, the whole team can take a heavy toll, hyde needs jackel, jackel needs peace, peace needs hyde

also they kinda dont speak to eachother, i mean peace speaks telepathically to jackel and hyde but they cant speak back, they listen but they dont speak back

if their enemy has all their weaknesses as his attacks, consider every one of these guys dead in less than a minute


and what i plan on doing is practicing on using one stick figure in an animation, then move on to two, then three, then the final four




THIS WILL BE NO EASY TASK IK, but a few years of learning with masters and practicing i can learn
i can draw what they basically look like, but it wont be complete artist material

Hey, quick question about RHG's... if we wanted to make an RHG purposefully imitating a cartoon character, would there by anything wrong with that? For a rough example: Gostick instead of Goku.

It would be un-original, but I dont see a problem in it.

Originality is a big point in making an RHG. Keep in mind that all RHGs can't be always original, but originality is what makes your RHG interesting.

The problem is now, people have less originality, and less grammar on their story.

Grammar does not matter unless you still understand the whole story...

I did doesn't matter if it is original as long as you like animating it.
I have had a few RHGs, but sometimes the originality makes it hard to animate or find a reference to study.
There is a simple way to make an RHG which is, Item that you can animate with small difficulty (swords/staffs/bow/gun/mace etc) + Your own little twist (weapon can blow up/ RHG can make auto-sword that attacks by itself) + Not too bright colour + Story on his personality = Masterpiece.
Lets see who suits this:
Alfa, Sword + sword can jet + nice green colour + Mysterious = Masterpiece.
Andre, Hammer + Lightning Abilities + brown colour + Stupid but Strong = Masterpiece.
Jomm, big sword + Air pressured cannons + Dark blue + Cocky = Masterpiece.

You can think up some other RHGs for this formula.

Something i hate is when they put weakness that aren't weakness. Like "Normal human weakness". That's not a weakness if your RHG have "super speed" or "super agile" or "martial arts expert", because with those abilities, it easy to dodge hits, so that weakness become irrelevant. You know what i mean? ._..

Makes sense. It should be more like Superman's kryptonite in which he gets extremely weak from exposure. Or if he has super speed it could be some kind of irreversable thing which makes him slow
