For those that don't know what this is: I've been hosting a new animation challenge about every 2 weeks, the winner will recieve honorary supporter status via Tom Fulp, who has been generous enough to support my endeavor in creating these challenges.
Past and current challenges can be seen in the thread: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1397643/1
So this time I chose a sound clip for everyone to animate some characters to. Acting is a big part of animation, being able to bring a character to life through their mannerisms and action is in my opinion the really juicy part of animating. Think body language and facial expressions, and don't forget things covered in the last challenge like easing in and out! If you don't ease the movements of your character he/she or it will look robotic. Also have some fun with your character designs, but try to be efficient. Unnecessary information tacks on more things to redraw every frame.
Here is the sound clip: http://goo.gl/wLTNw
Westley:"Where am I?"
The Albino:"The Pit of Despair! don't even think agh uhagh uhagh. Don't even think about trying to escape."
I think this will be a fun one cause of the little twist to it. Here is a good resource on lip syncing:http://zackzattack.blogspot.com/2013_10_01_archive.html
Unfortunately I don't have the money to be giving the book out every time. I wish I did, (sorry Jenninexus!), next time I'll see if I can swing it. However the winner will once again receive honorary supporter status!
The DEADLINE is Thursday, November 5th!
