Cool. :3 I really like the animation, it's so smooth! I wonder how long did it take you to make this...

 You should make a side view fighting game like this.

 I'm quite amazed.  It's hard to fathom doing something like this pixel by pixel

Wow you just made stick people EXTREMELY epic.

Some wierd and wonderful comments went on here, 7even's clearly skilled enough to know how much weight to read them with. I saw the preview and thought this would be someones first pixel art, liking the pastel color choice - boy was I pleasently suprised. Beautiful detail and fluidity, at such a small size too! A really awesome piece, jumping over the lightsaber swinging under Blue was especially smooth. Skills <3

 briliant! please post more like this. it's so fun to watch this and i think it's not an easy thing to animate something like this. what programm you used?


user
Phalcon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/6/2010 14:34

I used to flash stick anims that was awesome times


user
BoxedLunch (Level 1 Depressed) @ 8/23/2009 12:25

Whoah! This is epic. Do you have more?!


user
Tpoe (Level 4 Team Leader) @ 8/17/2009 21:48

there aren't many sprite animations that are  minute long my friend.


user
BeboTheBum (Level 1 Rookie) @ 5/16/2009 22:31

I love things like this


user
Oblivia (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/15/2009 18:38

 It's not the best strategy to make a spritesheet for a 30-second animation. To avoid clutter, I make a picture, save as a .PNG, alter it, save it, etc. I don't hold on to one picture, and if it makes my work just a little sloppier I don't mind. To make a spritesheet would be to spend 2 hours on something unneccesary.


user
Oblivia (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/15/2009 18:35

Wasn't offending, I was simply stating that some people can see everything in nothing.

The kind of person who can look at a pebble, and think, "What a marvel of nature!". Just because work went into something doesn't mean it's a masterpiece. I'm not saying this is bad, just underrated. It loops poorly, it's redundant, but it's not bad, and at the same time it's not good...


user
7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/14/2009 18:42

I don't see any reasons for being sarcastic unless you totally felt offended before. If so, sorry, I was not defying your sense of knowledge... But I believe such comment can't hit someone this way.

All I have to say is... Read 10 messages below this one. Shrub has got the same opinion as you, and I think my answer for him pretty much fits your point. Just avoidind to be redundant ;)

In any case, even if I think your comment was not constructive at all, I'm not trying to convince you, I'm just explaining myself.


user
Oblivia (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/14/2009 15:03

 Omg, I totally agree.

 

It's two stick figures, and only 5 colors are used throughout the animation. I really see the "quality"...


user
7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 4/13/2009 21:37

Have you ever heard about "quality over quantity"? :)


user
Oblivia (Level 1 Jukyu) @ 4/13/2009 15:02

 It's good... but I don't understand how this got so high in the rankings. It's less than a minute long, probably less than 200 frames...


user
AsimosVagan (Level 1 Depressed) @ 3/16/2009 14:24

 Great job, congratulations. I like the "More with Less" style.


user
Pixel_Master (Level 1 Depressed) @ 2/3/2009 09:56
This is the coolest thing I've ever seen. You inspired me to make awesome fight sequences.

Holy crap, this is incredible.

user
andy0_0black (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/27/2008 20:50
great animation, but the ending is a little weak. i understand you wanted it to loop effectively, but it kindof seems like more of an afterthought than a polished and intentional movement like the rest of the animation.

user
saggiofilosofo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/17/2008 01:09
Great!

user
jamon (Level 10 Operative) @ 1/28/2008 14:13
Fantastic work!

7even (Level 9 Nidan) @ 1/26/2008 08:17

I'm really not sure if I have to answer it since I can't find any constructive criticism on your comment, but I believe that there are some wrong thought you had about the others' opinion.

First of all, as long as I know, there are plenty of people here on PJ that are not experienced enough to rate some works, which turns them to choose their 'favorite' just by their likeness. That's not wrong, it's unavoidable in a community this big. However, I also believe these people, specifically here on PJ, have common sense.

About the animation, it's defintely short, but look again. In a hypothetical situation, you make a spritesheet for the entire animation. You would see how complex it is, pratically one different pose by frame, I can tell this. I could use the same sprites just to make it longer. Would it make it better? Add, like, three more backflips with four more of every move they make? It's just like making an army in pixel-art: copying and pasting over and over. If that's your concept of a good work, I'll have to bare with it =/

About WaterCloset's opinion, it's totally OK, he's not out of his mind. See, the animation is short, but it undeniably has a fast pace. Fast pace scenes usually tickle one's feelings, don't you think? Other than that, it's still his opinion, and it's not just a baseless opinion.

Dinky Little Stickman animations are not hard to make, I have to agree. One can easily open Newgrounds and see that it's true. But you can count on your hands fingers, based on when they were made, the ones that are really good. You can see that the rest are jaggy and uncreative animations. Also, I strongly believe that you know the difference between the hard work you have in Pixel Art and the one in Vector Art/Illustration in Flash. IMO, Xiao Xiao's animations are the best. But hey, he made them on Flash, which is fairly easier to make frames for the character's movements. Here, I had to place every pixel of the stickmen in the right place, worrying to not make them look stiffy. That creates quite a gap between the techniques.

I hope that's enough to clear your mind about my work and its repercussion. I just don't want to start another discussion based on someone's individual opinion ;)


user
Shrub (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/26/2008 06:46

I don't think that enough people on here know enough about animation to crit stuf like this. It's definitely overrated. The animation is farly fluid, but come on, it's short, and they're tiny stickmen. And WaterCloset, you must be out of your mind!

"Love the emotion" Emotion? EMOTION? It's a little "fight". Between two stickmen. Everybody is so stunned by this, but dinky little stickmen fights really aren't that hard to make.

nice, i love lightsaber fights.

user
WaterCloset (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/25/2007 02:53
It's absolutely amazing, man. Love the emotion and the speed of the thing. Plus, you didn't throw in unnecessary frames just for the hell of it, which keeps it really snappy.

One thing- the bit near the start where they stand there and the lines go hectic seems a bit cheap. But everything else is great.

user
pain (Level 9 Nidan) @ 5/13/2007 14:39
excellent use of pixels :)

user
Hapiel (Level 11 Admiral) @ 2/9/2007 09:43
Its cool, but just a bit too small... :(

user
AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 2/1/2007 22:16
well wouldnt there be effects every time the guys sabers hit? instead of every once in a while?

user
rabidbaboy (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 1/28/2007 16:37
AwesomePossum, that would be for effects.

user
AwesomePossum (Level 1 Thug) @ 1/16/2007 19:57
I think that this is awesome! but my only crit is that every once in a while there will be a white bg not transpearent.
