OK.....So i went a lil OTT with this one, was just gunna be a lil bit of animation in it and ended up turning into a movie.

Am trying to 'Aim high' in 2009 and so for this years AFL my fight pieces will not just be a flat image like i normally do, but a semi-animated comic/image. I'll try and not go over the top like i have here, but as it is the invite piece i figured why not.

My animation skills have been unused for about 18 months so i'm a little rusty, and having got carried away with this i forgot it was meant to have a story to it ^^;

Aaaaannnnyway...If you have no idea what the AFL is then SHAME ON YOU! Go here >[link] NOW!!! He's the Dude behind it all, and i feel privileged to know him in real life.

Hope this a sufficient insight into Creatures mannerisms and help any of my future opponents. Any Questions please Ask.

when I looked on how animation was nicely flowing I though "HOLE SHIT! I GOT TO LEARN HOW DOES HE DO IT!"

very sweet job done here, mate. :thumbsup:

This is fantastic! It almost makes me forget my insane bitterness that you're not involved in Secret Wars! Almost...! ;) Anyway, a fantastic animation and I look forward to seeing the Creature back for AFL III - who knows - maybe he and Vigil will meet this time!

I was going to opt in the secret wars at the last minute until i realised Creature isnt really a goodie or a baddie, he's just...a kind of thing lol. most of my more developed characters are neither to be honest. but seeing all the good work produced for it, i am starting to wish i got in there.

Although not having that to do means i can really concentrate on the AFL and its gunna a busy one for me this year, thats for sure. Am Really hoping that he gets to go against vigil in this one, it would be an honour to animate her...and in all honesty with someone so powerfull, i dont see creature winning. lol. but at the same time, her being a more civilised person, she may be reluctant to fight someone so detatched from society as creature is anyway, so would be very interesting indeed.

Are you going to animate your AFL entries too? Wow - that would be amazing! I really hope Vigil and creature meet up now! And yeah, she's powerful, but not invincible - it just means he'd have to be a bit sneaky!

Man, this is insanely awesome. the invite floating into scene and him catching it with his tail was great. Him jumping down on the fence and the little bend was cool too. Setting yourself a high standard man, but with entries like these, you'll be one to watch for sure!
