~86K Stick Fighters Special~

A little fun with my Blobman 3D character and some cool mocap data. I could have used realistic people on this scene, but stick figures are so much fun and render really fast (real-time)!!

All 3D modeling by me. Mocap freebie data from Eclipse Studios. Hope you like it and thanks for coming by!

its very good fighting, very fluent movement realistic. Only thing is its a little boring. not complaining or anything but it feels like someone of your talent could do better. u can keep it stick to cut corners but if u wanna make it interesting to people do something cool. add an environment, use it, just bring enough entertainment, comedy whatever u wanna do to the surface so u can keep your audiences attention for every second.
did u use mocap for this? or is it all u.

The key element on this is not so much the animation itself, but how it was generated. I don't know if you have heard of Natural Motion's Endorphin technology? It creates animations procedurally instead of recording actors in mocap suits. The technology was used in some of the most modern games, such as GTA4, where NPC behaviors were controlled by the same kind of technology from Natural Motion, making them more unpredictable and realistic. Here I applied the technology in Poser! :D

dude that is cool. GTA IV has some of the most realistic physics I've ever seen. seriously. sometimes when I shoot people or hit them with a car i feel bad lol.
but its good u learned how to use that technology. do u think u can make an entire fight scene with that? U should do like monty oum release a cool big fight scene using popular characters to build ur name up and then follow up by creating your own stuff in a 3d fight. I could help I've got a lot of ideas :D
what are your intentions for your stories? do you want them published, just read, or what?

Tell you the truth, I only made this animation because I wanted to use super-cool new technology with my favorite tool, Poser. It's a hell of a work to convert procedural motion generated in Natural Motion's tools, and make them fit a Poser figure because the skeletons and joint rotations are completely different. I just thought it was a nice challenge, but I am not into fighting animations that much. ^^

As for my original stories, I just write them because I really enjoy writing. Here are a couple of short stories featuring my sexy ShadoGal Mai vampire character:

Ahhhh, this is awesome. I'd love to see it continued.
The cartoony scribbly effect was epic and the movements and such are great, I love how they flew like ragdolls when kicked.

Nice job.

Thank you! Have you seen my dynamic weather AS3 program in The Matrix style? --> [link] or my AS3 "graphic novel" program? --> [link] and my new AS3 music player program? --> [link] :D

I have been doing a lot more of AS3 programming lately. ^^

Pretty cool stuff. I should really get into AS3 but I can't seem to install CS3+, and I hate using Flex and other programs D:

Flex is good for other kinds of AS3 programming, like commercial database programming. Nonetheless I have used Flex to create a number of graphical programs using pure AS3 and for that Flex has the BEST IDE and testing environment. In Flash CS3 and CS4 the code assistant sucks and the debugger Flash player is buggy. But this combination of Flash with AS3 is absolutely *powerful*, even when the programming IDE sucks. Any AS3 app that uses graphics should stick to Flash instead of Flex. You can do the same in Flex but it's a pain. ;p

I frankly think that Flash is mostly useless without AS3, and that AS3 gets the real power when combined with Flash. I know this because I was programming AS3 without Flash for a year before I tried Flash CS4. :)

is that some endemic illness to stick people? (i figure there are also stick "women", isn't it? XDDDD) that they ALWAYS end fighting each other? my books are full of stories about them, and blood spreads all over the place

There is indeed a lot of stick figure animations in Flash, but you don't see them fighting in 3D that often. :)
