Smile Comp #11 (FALL DOWN, GET UP)




_Falling Down_


The idea,
Alrighty then, itís time to bring life to a character. I want to see a character fall down. But not just any fall. Lets be as creative as we can with this one. Make this as original as you can. Use props if you need/want to. If you want, to add music. But donít post anything that looks like a normal fall. Falling is easy, you always find the ground. So to spice it up, your character needs to get back up. Have fun with it. If you donít have a character to animate, you can find one on the net(let us know you didnít model it).
_Rules_

- The due date is August 5th, (two weeks from now) a Saturday 11pm(GMT). Voting will be on that Sunday. Post your final entryís in the Final Entry Thread.

- Minimum animation: your animation needs to be at least 6 seconds.

- Recommended screen resolution in 320x240 (you can do 640x480 if you want, but why would you).

- You can post W.I.P.s but you are only allowed one complete entry. That link is also final. You can and should post your wipís to get help.

- Websites where you post your finals is up to you.

- Remember, it's about animation, use your time for animation, not to get the best render possible, unless you can afford it.

- Use of plug-ins not allowed. Must be key framed (hand animated)

- Try to use Quicktime or Divx if possible.

- You must post a render of some sort with your final entry post; also include a screen grab with key frames. No CHEATING.

- Voting will be as follows -

Pick your favorite animation. You will get to pick your favorite. At the end of the polling, whoever gets the most votes wins. Add any crits of final entryís in the final entry thread.



Good luck!

Talking

LOL, where did you get that picture? I know it's not polite to laugh until you see that the person is ok, but that is funny. I'll see what I can do in the remaining days I get back from vacation.

Good Luck,

Picture looks pretty staged to me
So falling down and getting up. Great challenge!

I'll present my idea as fast as I can so noone snaps them out of my hands
Then I have to borrow a camera to shoot reference and I also need to model/rig some props. Maybe I can get that done tonight... Hope so. No time to waste.
