TidalNight Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2008
Thanks - Its been a while since I looked back at this project, I think all up, it was about 800 hours worth of work and learning/experimenting at the same time.
swordsman-shadow Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2008
800 hours! wow that's dedication... hey i was wondering what kind of soft ware do you use besides flash 8?
TidalNight Featured By Owner Jan 29, 2008
For this project, it was mostly 3DSMax and Photoshop.
I've been with Photoshop and openCanvas 1.1 for the longest, followed by Flash. I'm still experimenting with 3D as thats the newest skill set I've picked up.

Went and saw the full movie at Youtube, its really an excellent piece of work, the animation is really quite exceptional, almost looks like mo-cap! The cell shading looks great, and the feel of the aniamtion reminds me a bit of windwaker. I really like the design blue haried tiger guy.

I thought that the characters could used a little more work and the sound was a little quite, but all in all nice job! I love how you did the special effects in it. A little more tweaking and sound work is all I think this needs. I'm going to add it to my fav's on youtube. :3

Woah, I just watched the film clip and it blew me away. The textures- the movement- pure art genious. Absolutely stunning.
KazeWolf Featured By Owner May 19, 2007
Ok, so I finally saw this after getting cable internet and I have to say that I should not have waited that long to see it.

Extremely impressive and I am at awe by your talent in composition. I can only hope to make something that wicked once I'm in school.

That's impressive... can I ask what program did you use to make it?
Dumago Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2007
Gotta hand it to you, that's some pretty amazing stuff right there. It obviously takes scores of practice to make something like that. o_

The animation is incredibly smooth, and you did a great job of keeping the voices & music in sync with all the action.
angelicvixen08 Featured By Owner Mar 5, 2007
call me a insane random teen who knows nothing but anime (as an art style), but this rocks! have you considered this as a game someday?
Minnigan Featured By Owner Mar 3, 2007

FreakWolf Featured By Owner Feb 2, 2007
Guess i'll stop with the jokes and tell it really matter.
The video is honestly perfect, that's all.
Makoim Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2007
awesome animation! love the vocals and the magic.
spitzen Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
The full video blew me away! Not only were the story and environment so well-planned and exceted, TN looks so marvelous walking (and talking!) in digital reality! I can't wait to see a two-hour, feature-length video starring the beloved TN, which sure is coming real soon! :D
TerraForce Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2007
Gracious, I enjoyed it quite much. How many hours would you estimate that the entire project (in terms of construction--not planning, writing, or vocal recording) took?

Marvelous work. I do hope that I should see new 3D animations from you again soon, though given the amount of effort that likely went into making it happen, I don't expect/demand such things. Heavens knows you did fabulously on this one here.
Vannister-Nicodemus Featured By Owner Jan 19, 2007  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OMG!!! OMG !!!! :jawdrop: WOW Sensei... you are simply AWESOME!! :clap: i love it man !!! you are an expert in 3D Max really ^^, ...

GOOD JOB on the ANIMATION :clap: :+fav:

Was it hard to keep the feet still as you animated the rest of the bones for your animation?

Walk cycles suck -hard-. Excellent job with the lip syncing, probably my favorite part.

Did you use endomorphs for the mouths?

Ah yes, I also love the concept of the level up thing near the end. Very, very cool
TidalNight Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2007
1) No
2) Doing walk cycles arent that bad, and hopefully you dont mean "my" walk cycles suck hard.
3) No
Alexar Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2007  Student Filmographer
I meant that they're hard to do when you don't kill the anticipation... And stuff. Then they suck because you have to readjust the legs and feet when you have a parented waist to move the body and make sure the foot stays still so you don't get the "Moonwalk" effect.
Mizumi2004 Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2007
Holy krud that's really really cool. The voices and music really add to the overall piece. Much kudos~ =^_^=
t-daimon Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2007

TidalNight Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2007
Thanks. Was done in 3D Studio Max 8
t-daimon Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2007
Hm... interesting. How long did it take you just to build one model of a character?
TidalNight Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2007
Not an extreme amount of time, and well, these are somewhat low res chars.
t-daimon Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2007
