11 second club - More stuff!

Okay, so trying to get the images off the pencil test machine is kinda tricky when you don't really know what you're doing. I somehow managed to get that done though, and here is the result so far. I only got up to the part where the 2nd frog talks for the first time.

I mean what's the point? Ain't nobody gonna win, it's just gonna go on and on...
Can't go on forever.

The rest of the movie is just sound. Anyways, lots more work to get done to even be considered close to the end. T_T

11 second club - Rough keys

EDIT: took down to conserve space 11/18/08

Rough keys for my 11 second club thinger. I'm feeling a tad sick, so I wasn't able to do more by the due time. I'm gonna see if I can work on more tonight though.

Art pics for last week and this week.






Pics I forgot to upload for last week, and pics this week.

Thumbnails for 11 second club


My thumbnails for the 11 second club dialogue.
Voice One: "I mean, what's the point? Ain't nobody gonna win, it's just gonna go on and on..."
Voice Two: "Can't go on forever."
Voice One: "Yeah, but ain't nobody gonna win... so."
Voice Two: "Somebody's gonna win."
After a bunch of thinking, I happened across this idea by chance. I was drawing/doodling different characters randomly to see if I happened to like any of them enough to make something out of it, when I happened to draw a frog. I had been thinking of the idea of making the dialogue about playing tick-tac-toe right before, but when I drew the frog, I ended up thinking about a frog crossing a busy road while two other frogs looked on at him talking.
It's sort of a play on the game frogger, like a real life version. Although I'm not even sure if there are any sort of copyright things with that.
I'm also unsure about if I should or should not have some cuts to the frog jumping across the street or not, and also for the ending, when (or if) I should show the frog getting hit by the car. Also, I may need to rework my character designs more to make them a bit more interesting. They're rather boring now that I look at it again.
No animation/key frames yet.

Running through art building

Favorite of the 11 sec club

videoChoose this animation as my favorite out of the 11 sec club for the month of September. There were a few other good ones, but I narrowed it down to this one. I liked the timing on his reaction and the followthrough of his motions drinking the cup and such. Also, it was one of the few who didn't overdo it when it came to the killing of the first speaker.
