Death Battle Debut!

Posted by ifureadthisdie - March 26th, 2014


It's been a bit since I updated this but I return this time with some news for the maybe 2 people here that actually care.

I was hired to animate for Screwattack's Death Battle series (http://www.screwattack.com/shows/originals/death-battle), and my very first episode has been released! 

I did the animation and effects, Ben Singer (Wiz) did the music and sounds. Why he did so I'll explain below

So here's Luigi vs Tails


I must say. This was not at all how I wanted it to be. Ben did not email me about the episode for a bit, when he finally did it was during a horrible time. Finals week of my first semester in College, then Holidays, and then school started again with a MUCH more brutal schedule that I did not anticipate at all. Basically I ended up biting more than I could chew, and most of the DeathBattle was made during weekend late nights, trying to desperately catch up lost time before having to go to school again, WHILE also trying to keep up with school. Considering all the classes I was taking were art related, they also had deadlines and projects that kept me up at night working on them with time I should have spent on the Death Battle. I'm personally not really happy with the result, what I liked most about it is the background and the blender animation itself. 

Ben did the audio because among the things that delayed the episode were computer crashes, one of which made me lose 2 days of progress. I could've have spent it polishing the video, fixing up those bad effects and finishing the sounds but I failed to do so on time. Ben had to do a rush job himself and uploaded the video anyway. So there you go guys.

Made using Blender, After Effects, and Flash.

Congrats on the gig!

I said only about 2 people would care, and one of them was TomFulp.

Brb gonna frame this.

congrats man I´m a huge death battle fan and wish you good luck

Thanks! What did you think of this episode?

Nice job on the video! I didn't notice any shortcomings or errors at all.

ALL I notice are my shortcomings and errors.

Regardless of those shortcomings, I think you did an awesome job on the video man. Good job, really!

Congrats on getting hired by ScrewAttack. :)

You still exist! It's like everybody I remember from the old interface design are coming back.

lol I disappear a lot but animation is my thing, you'll see more from me soon.
