Yeah something like that.

Anyways. I would love to get back into making awesome scenery because it will be much needed practice for me.

This affects all of you aspiring animators because being able to animate and make detailed backgrounds with many moving components are two completely different things. So if you would like for me to make a background for your animation as well as objects or even some effects, just leave a comment below explaining in detail what it is that you want me to make for you. I would prefer it if the background is made prior to the animation because it will make merging the two that much easier, but it isn't impossible and I can do that if I need too.

Since my backgrounds are going to be at a higher quality, I will require everyone to post an animation showcasing their skill level if they want a background made specifically for their animation.

If you have an idea in mind of a cool background, go ahead and leave a comment explaining your idea. I'm mainly doing this for experience so I'll still work on most non official backgrounds that are posted. The only difference is these will be available to everyone.

I'll go ahead and explain the difference between the commissioned work (requires a certain skill level) and the non-commissioned work. If you want me to make a background for your specific animation, then you will post an example of your work as well as a description of what you want. If I accept then I will make this background for you, and only you to use. If you get declined or just want to leave a suggested background that you would like to see, then I will still more than likely give it a shot and if it is completed then I will host and link to it here for everyone to use.

If you like my work and want me to make a background for an animation that you are trying to get sponsored, especially if it requires angle work, it will cost you a percentage of your sponsorship money, but if you're that serious about it we can discuss further details in private.

This will be the priority for me making backgrounds:
Commissioned Background for a Sponsored Animation
Commissioned Background for an Animation
Suggested Background for the Community

For all of you lovely people who like to make a lot of tests or even RHG battles and you don't use a background when you do, I can make you a custom arena with several objects that you can move and place to change it up everytime if you would like. That's just a suggestion from me to you.

They will take a day or two to be finished, so please be patient. I will also only be doing one at a time.
If you can provide any references or quick sketches of what you want, please feel free to do so.

Good idea, I expect you to have lots of business.

Yeah I think it's something people will want considering a lot of animations nowadays don't really have backgrounds.

Do you have any examples of your previous works?

Arch-Angel
10-23-2013, 04:46 AM
I might but a lot of it is really with some perspective and doesn't completely showcase my abilities.

I've always had the rep as being the background guy. I was also hoping some people would make some requests for me to do so I could start showcasing my current abilities from there rather than rehashing old screenshots. Lemme see if I can't find something though.

The last is my most recent. These aren't anything great, and nothing like what I will be doing.

Here's some perspective stuff

The last one is actually a lot more complicated than that is now, I just can't be bothered to upload a recent image since it doesn't fit on a swf.

The castle/tower perspectives are really nice, some of the first few backgrounds are a little bland but I can tell you're experienced in all this. I maay request something.

Arch-Angel
10-23-2013, 05:21 AM
Yeah the first few were done with the intent to keep file size low and make something repetitive if I needed too.

That's some seriously amazing work, I'm not worthy of them (so far), I'll probably suggest something Soon™.

I would really Like you teach me how you do this amazing work that you do, But anyway I'd like to make an order.
I want it to be a something like a 5 story office building,revolver doors, and trees that move genteelly to the breeze of the wind. On the building a sign on that says Mad's Domain.The building surrounded in a downtown city kind of setting at night with cloudy skies. moving cars in the foreground.

Here are my animations.(Skill wize, note some don't have backgrounds@<@)

Funny, I just made a request and you say that, does that mean I'm being ignored?
Was my request ignore, denied, dismissed, unaccepted?

No poppet and I just have that kind of relationship.
I'll give it a shot, I hate cars lol. You're a douche for wanting the trees to move, but I'll give that a shot as well I suppose.
You're not getting a revolving door. Fuck that right now.

MadMirrors
10-23-2013, 07:04 AM
Well, shit. Alright I get it I asked for to much of you my bad, but thank you for still going along with my order.
I'm Mirrors.

I just really cant be bothered to make this real perspective and figure out a revolving door. It's not hard It would probably just be best to start with the door but eh. I don't think it's that important to have especially if the building isn't going to be super detailed.

The idea so far is to have a street so you can have your moving cars (maybe), then theres the sidewalk where I'm going to assume any animating will be done on, then I'm going to have a nice little open space for your building and some shrubbery and what not, and behind that will be another street and a line of buildings.

I made you first order the most difficult haven't I?

Arch-Angel
10-23-2013, 07:16 AM
No not at all lol. It could be extremely complicated. The cars and rotating door are two things I dislike doing, everything else is pretty standard I suppose.

This is what I have so far with the line work.

MadMirrors

Well I didn't want the doors to be animated, I just wanted them to be revolving doors, I didn't think you'd attempt to animate them.
If the doors are to much you don't have to animate them.

Arch-Angel
10-23-2013, 07:41 AM
Animating a revolving door in a perspective drawing would be crazy lol. I didn't consider it nor would I. I would rather reconstruct it in 3DS Max before I did that.

This is pretty cool. I once had the idea in my mind of making backgrounds by request but I think I'd just end up losing motivation to create things for people, lol. The castle background you did in perspective was pretty amazing. I hope people will notice this considering the huge amount of half-assed backgrounds (or no background at all) in animations here on stickpage nowadays, good luck

MadMirrors

Would it be able to open in flash cause I don't have 3d max.

Arch-Angel
10-23-2013, 10:14 AM
No if I made it in 3DS Max it would not be able too lol.

I don't really like it all that much. I think I'm going to start over and just use the brush tool and make something really creative and different to play along with your RHG character better. It's kinda hard to have the building five stories and include a cityscape behind it while leaving enough room for you to be able to animate if you want to lol. I don't really like the perspective that it's at.

MadMirrors

I understand man, thanks tho.

Arch-Angel

I understand man, thanks tho.

I'm still down to do this for you lol. Like I said I need the practice. I just don't really want to do vector with this. I think I'm going to take your ideas and mix them with my ideas. I think you'll like the outcome.

MadMirrors
10-26-2013, 07:20 AM
I can only imagine, I wait for no man, but the idea sounds good.
Commence lines and what not.

There not for download they're examples of his skills, meaning he does requests, the thread is called Arch's backgrounds, so I don't know why people would assume he's recruiting when the idea is for people to request backgrounds they want made by Archangel.
It just makes no sense to me.


FUCK YOU,I'M MIRRORS DAMMIT
