Never Again

Watch on YouTube

What happens when your Mom steps on your LEGO collection?

This video was made for the Take a Leap challenge

The theme was "And They Were Never Seen Again",
the mod elements were Red and Brown,
and my challenge was "Tile Floors"

It actually was 30  hours from the challenge's start when I finished.

It was fun making it, and I look forward to entering more contests in the future.

Feedback and/or constructive criticism is always welcome, I am always looking to improve my animations.  mini/smile

Re: Never Again

This.... this makes me cry... *boo hoo hoo*

Very clever, actually! The main thing I will critique is the fact that the kid completely stopped moving when the mom walked in the door. The rest was great, keep it up!

Re: Never Again

thanks everybody, I'm not entirely sure how to go about animating one figure while masking another, but I could have at least made the kid move until

his Mother tripped and fell,

I guess having him turn his head would have been good, but I was just to lazy. mini/sad
I will definitely try to do better next time.

Re: Never Again

Very well done all around. Slightly surprised by the ending. Looking forward to more.

Re: Never Again

This is a very tragic film. Neither parties were going benefit from the incident.
You wanted criticism, so...

  • ditto to what Rioforce said

  • the mother's walk on tile wasn't consistent to the stud walk so some more practice there

Overall. I liked it.

Re: Never Again

Ah-ha, a quick analyzation of the tile walking part shows what I did wrong, in a normal on-stud walk cycle there are certain frames where the character moves very little, or not at all. I moved the character the same amount every frame when on tiles. mini/sad
I also moved it too much at a time making the walk on tiles faster, and then slower when on studs.

Thanks for the advice. mini/smile
