It's both a good and a bad thing when your work feels dated the moment you upload it.

Bad that you know it's not your best anymore; good that you know you can blow it out the water. :D

This piece was a beast to work on. I wanted to give up on it many, many times, but dug in, learned a few new tricks and finished. There are plenty of mistakes left in the aftermath, but they aren't deep enough to ruin the experience, I feel. :XD:

Please download and enjoy. Hopefully the Blue Bomber has been done a little justice. :nod:

Oh, and I arranged and sequenced the music, so you can blame me for the guitars. :horns:

Transform Blue Bomber a flash animation by *thatLD ( Suggested by rydi1689 and Featured by Moonbeam13 )
:iconandyrichardsart:
First things first, this is an exceptional piece of animation.

It is well thought out and faithful to the world of Megaman whilst bringing something new to the table.

The art style also fits perfectly. Characters are well animated and all of the artwork used is of the same high standard, I particularly like the nights sky and the costume transition effects.

The music used fits the piece well and offers a unique take on the familiar Megaman theme whislt keeping it fresh.

To be honest I can't find anything that needs fixing or improving, I would love to see a Megaman animation done in this style.

I don't think I've ever given anyone's artwork a perfect rating before, I'm not a fan of Megaman either, but it's truly hard to say anything bad about this piece. The animation is beautiful and crisp, definitely some of the best I've seen on Deviantart. You've captured the characters very well and everything looks smoother than humanly possible. I can easily say this is definitely a good animation to present your artwork, it encouraged me to look to at the rest of your gallery and I can see that you are very professional at what you do. Overall, great animation that you can clearly see all the work that was put into making it look good and a good representation of the series.

Not a megaman fan, but this sure looks awesome. :-)
And could be a 1000 times better megaman intro than the one from this old 90 (or 80?) cartoon...gosh how I hated this intro as a kid.

All done in Photoshop? Too. Damn. Amazing! Love how smooth this is. Considering Photoshop only runs at like 12fps max, right?
Have you got any tutorials or even tips for an aspiring animator such as myself?
Reply
:iconthatld:
thatLD Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2012  Professional Filmographer
Yep. Drawn straight in Photoshop. If dA didn't have a 20MB filesize limit on PSD files then I'd upload some of the originals for people to look through.

Photoshop Extended will run at whatever framerate you set it to. This particular animation is 30fps and all of the drawings are timed at 15fps. :nod:

Hmm. I don't have any serious tutorials just yet, but I definitely plan to make some that get deep. There isn't enough info on dA about this kind of animation.

As far as tips, the only one I can give is to be patient and increase your willingness to fix mistakes. That'll make a world of difference in your animation as you practice. :nod:

Your work will be riddled with mistakes as you figure out what you're doing. As long as you're willing to fix and work on them then they will fade away and allow your true intentions to start shining through.
