I love how you compensate no mouths by making over exaggerated facial expressions and overly eccentric movements. The colors and backgrounds are absolutely insane and pretty on their own! Also that was clever use of the environment when trying to provide visuals for Aarons babbling lol. Overall I was really impressed by the sheer effort thrown in for a game grumps animated. Keep at it! :D
11/10 for best Jon poot!
Well, the last one I did had lip syncing, and I really wasn't a fan of the style. I felt like it ultimately took away from the overall feel of the cartoon because when the focus is on them talking with their mouths, I don't have much room to make them emote otherwise, without visually over-complicating things. By simplifying things like having no mouths, I really have to work hard to make them visually portray what they are trying to say, using their bodies, eyes, and other things. I think the result of having to work to compensate for no mouths really makes a huge difference in the final product.
As for the environment, yeah, I'm really happy with how that portion turned out. I'd always only worked with mostly static backgrounds before, so I wanted to really step it up. Fortunately, other than the foreground stuff, everything else was able to be manipulated with Sony Vegas later on in the process, so all the background movement and bubbles and other environmental effects you're seeing are a result of having a lot more freedom later on in the process and not being confined to the more cramping Flash way of doing things.
Thanks though, glad you enjoyed it! :D
And now Earth belongs to king piccolo until the world's likely demise! YEY!!
I thoroughly enjoyed the exaggeration of the dialogue being brought to life. Comes to show some battles could just be as ridiculous as you imagine them to be!
Thanks, totally agree, I mean I'm guessing this is what happens when all the pp of present runs out.
It was comical and the animation was creative and smoooooth. I dig it! :D
I can't lie. I thought this was hysterical xD
