Ugh.

So I FINALLY finished this animation after promising it months ago.

This is of :icontomkrohne: character Watchamacallit when he wanted to launch a Kickstarter project.

I thought I would help out with a nice animated preview, but working on it on and off, not being very experienced in flash etc etc meant it just kept getting delayed. Sorry man.

Anyway, I did plan on it being an example of animated commissions, but judging by how long it took I am not so sure now. Also my first time making a replay button. Took me ages.

Hope I brought your drawing and character to life buddy.
Around 186 frames.

Hope you guys like it anyway.

HO LEE CHOW!!! This is awesome! I remember seein' the (three second?) YouTube video Tom put out for you to build on.

Now you got me wonderin' how Mr Crusher would sound...

Thanks man.
Yeh, when Tom put that video up I told him that I wanted to do a lil justice to Watcha being animated. It was hard though, and took a lot longer than I wanted it too, but I am sort of happy with the result.

I certainly couldnt do a voice for AC. lol Not nearly man enough. ^_^

That's so brilliant! Really in character - hostile, frustrated and sort of world weary! Are you going to do animated commissions then, or has this put you off?

Thanks alot man. I think the voice really helped out here and made it much better than it is. lol

Ideally I would love to do animated commissions so I can use my experience as a niche, but I think they would take ages to do. Although I wasnt really fully focused doing this, with commissions I would be so maybe it wont be as bad as I think it may be. I would probably make it known before hand that it may take a while to do. ^_^

Tom provided it to me, its either him or got someone to record it.
Sadly I am not skilled at voiceovers.

It's great! Suits him. How much would you charge for a commission?
Reply
:iconangelcrusher:
AngelCrusher Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Honestly its hard to put a price on it I think. I think I would need to know details such as the action/movement involved, if its dialogue, how long it is etc. Some things can be knocked out quicker than others and frame count (duration) is important.


So while I skirt around the issue of price publicly because I think it involves many different factors, I think I would be willing to negotiate as well.

How much would you think people would be willing to pay for something similar? I think its a tough call really.

Kostmeyer Featured By Owner Feb 5, 2012
LOL 'How much would you be willing to pay?' Tricky!

No idea. I only have a vague idea of what I want... will need a bit of thime to think. But a Vigil animation would be fantastic. Are there legal issues with 'borrowing' sound samples if you aren't using it for profit?

I wouldnt imagine there would be any if you aint using it for profit, its like fanart aint it? Although I guess places like youtube are touchy on copyrighted music. Let me know in a note what you're thinking and then I will also have a think. ^_^

Thanks man. Honestly I am not sure because I was working on it here and there since around August last year I think. Although there were only really maybe 3 or 4 days where I sat down for a long period of time on it. So maybe between 15-20 hours altogether, but I cant really remember. I hope it was less, but probably a safe ball park figure.

Thanks man. Yeh, it was a great voice over provided to me and it was full of character and personality for me to get some nice actions with. I wanted to experiment using graphics and animate with as few shapes as possible (ie not draw anything) so its not bad in a limited sense, but the way flash works just does my head in.

haha yeh, what an awful program. I have gained more respect for those who make flash movies as it seems like such a chore doing it like this. May see if there are easier ways to go about what i want to do, as obviously i am an amateur so probably was making mistakes everywhere along the way.

Yeah, you've got to have respect for people who make Flash movies - while secretly suspecting them of masochism.

I have never even attempted actionscript before, never needed to, never got taught it. Looked up some online tutorials and they werent that easy to follow but I got there in the end.

Wish I did this in Toon Boom though so I could have made a rig for the character rather than having around 10 individual layers.
