Old Anamatic: Ram's Demon by wadifahtook Old Anamatic: Ram's Demon by wadifahtook
Maybe you remember these guys from [link] . Probably not though. XD

Bits and pieces of an old animatic from college. My computer crashed on the last day of school, and took the finished file with it. I was able to retrieve some of the frame files, but some of the frames, the sound files, and the completed movie file are all long gone. I decided to pick some of my favorite drawings, and popped 'em together since I've finally come to admit that I'll never be able to recompile this. I can't even find the old script for this thing, and that was on paper. So yeah, enjoy (or not) some random drawings. The characters are Ram, Ox, Tiger, Owl, Elephant, and Boar. Please don't ask me what species they are. ;)

I love this I wish it were bigger and a little clearer but OMG simply stunning!

I really love the "lipsync" and the designs/patterns all the animals have

would love to see this finished again

Haha, I would love to see it finished again too! I can't believe it was about the only thing they were not able to fully recover off the hard drive. X(

I'm still trying to get the hang of animation unfortunately! And dude, yes! I'd love to see the comic in an animated version (especially considering the very animated look of the comic). :D

Me too. ;) I remember the basic gist of the story (it was kind of dumb), so I cut out almost every scene from the end as the story steadily declined in quality. XD

Very nice! You are a great animator, and the character designs are beautiful!

When I went to hit the fav button, my computer glitched and I accidently hit the print request button XD It would be pretty impossible to make a print of an animation XD So sorry about that!

wadifahtook Featured By Owner Apr 14, 2008
Haha, don't worry about it. The only time I get print requests is for animations, so now I know it is because the darn print button is right by "download". XD

I like how you do your expressions for your characters. It really aids their personalty and gives them a life of their own. The animation for what it is in its broken form is fantastic. Its hard to put together a storyline. To me it looks like they are trying to rescue the sheep who keep getting carried away. I could be very wrong though.

Thanks so much for that Blue! I am still very...upset over the loss of this, since I had some great memories of staying up all night with Kil, trying to record all the sound effects and such in a computer lab...and he had done some hilarious voices! I like your interpretation of the story a lot. :D

I think you should try it again. I mean hey it may not be the same but if it can bring back more memories then hey! Why not?

Right now, things are too darn hectic! We're trying to get moved out, hold things together at work, and there is a little side project I really, really want to get done that involves puppets of all things. Big learning experience for me there!

Well, we were supposed to write a short paper. But, the teacher was really, really cool, and she gave us the option of doing a project of some kind instead! She made that class so damn interesting, plus my anthropology class covered the Shang dynasty as well, and we had actual collections of figures and tools on display at the college. I have several stories involving, well, China in general, but especially Mongolia because of it. XD

Oh my gosh that must have been absolutely devastating! This is very neat, though.. It kind of feels like watching ghosts, I think. Really interesting! I love your drawings and seeing the characters come to life (they look very alive despite the fact that it's an animatic). I really like that swooping motion the tiger does. :aww:

:iconwadifahtook:
wadifahtook Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2008
Yeah, it was not a fun time. But, I at least it was graded (it was a final project too, eep) before I lost it. :)

Thanks so much Shojo. That means alot coming from you, because your drawings are always bursting with life!
