My first challenge piece - inspired by various sources. My first animated work as well.
Voted! Holding thumbs :)
I love it! The ropes moving and everyhting - excellent detail bit
Lovely concept,good sir!It's one of my favorites so far!
Because it has an almost anitique drawing style, like a Victorian etching almost, so the smoke and other moving parts are not as critical for the 'mind's eye' to read it as 'real' as the propellor is. In this slower version the propellor is so slow that it seems impractical. When looking at the 3 versions you posted it seemed to me that the propellor was the most important detail, movement wise.
Mind you I was nitpicking, this is fine as is too. I would have liked your entry if it wasn't animated so its awesome that you did it at all.
I was very torn between the speeds - I thought the smoke was moving too quickly in the faster animation loop and wasn't sure of that the anti-gravity pulse was properly visible - each pulse pushes the locothopter up and then it sinks again - but at the higher speed I wasn't sure. On the other hand the quicker propellor move is nicer.
Could you pinpoint why you liked it? That might help me.
Awesome job, damn so many good entries!!
The concept is awesome. Very steampunk...
I love this ship. I actualy like the slightly faster version in the forum better.
