/a/ who's your favorite pilot?
You don´t need victory class destroyer in
>The /m/ Mecha Board
>for feedback and critique
But we called him faggot and told many times this animation was shit.
He didn't even mention us... what an ungrateful bastard!
He was going for a Heavy Metal feel from the looks of it. Which I think fits very well considering these are badasses piloting TIE Fighters instead of Luke and his rag tag Rebels.
Yeah I get that, I just didn't feel it because Star Wars IS orchestra.
It doesn't feel right
After seeing the logo I was hoping to hear something like this
What do TIE Interceptors have to do with Victory-class Star Destroyers or not?
What's wrong with having a couple of Impstar Deuces and an Interdictor handle a tiny Rebel convoy of one frigate, two corvettes, and three transports?
The empire had mostly phased out clones and switched to conscripts by the time the movies happened, since they didn't want to rely on Kamino after they tried to pull their own rebellion and no one else could make clones worth a damn.
They used the EU to explain that shit though. Might be different now that Disney axed most of it.
The style is nice, but I have two issues with it
1. nothing seems to have any inertia. not the people, not the ships, not the camera. it's kinda jarring.
2. it may just be the youtube compression, but even on 720p there's strong aliasing everywhere
>/a/ who's your favorite pilot?
The most DANGEROUS one of course.
What if Paul "Otaking" Johnson spent his time improving his art/animation fundamentals instead of continuing his puerile and masturbatory crusade to revive "80s shading"? Would he actually become a decent artist capable of producing competently made animation?
How can you seriously say this is shit art?
I mean... the movement and inertia are not there so there's something left to improve in the animation. But this is definitely really impressive for an one-man job.
I never understood this edgelord attitude where anyone who works for something and achieves something is shit. Grop up.
because otaking and his ridiculous assertions about art ought to be taken down a peg whenever possible. I don't hate the guy, and I don't hate the animation, but if you see vitriol about him, it's partly because of the work itself, and partly because of the sort of person he is. If you don't know otaking, then that's maybe why you don't get it.
>How can you seriously say this is shit art?
Because it is. Otaking's draftsmanship is complete balls. Always has been, unfortunately always will be. His hideous idea of "shading" doesn't help at all.
>But this is definitely really impressive for an one-man job.
It's impressive that he put the effort in. The result of the effort is not very impressive though.
>How can you seriously say this is shit art?
Because it's bad. It's as simple as that. You want me to write an essay? It's not good technically nor stylistically. I'm not saying it's the worse, but come on.
Fug off otakunt
The colors, the shading,
noses, the mecha.
Not so good: faces/bodies animation, transition too fast.
But after seeing this is a one man project, damn, that's awesome.
Hey, remember how the Devil's Legacy guys wanted 150k dollars for an 8 minutes short worse than this?
Well, looks like this guy did better, for free and alone.
Wow, this is jealousy at its most sour. Pathetic.
I had never heard of Otaking before today; I don't know what he's said, nor do I care, but this short is fucking amazing, even morose considering he did it alone without pay.
Of course there are going to be minor nuances that nitpicking retards like yourself who are holding an agenda, but it still looks better than most anime today, certainly in terms of animation, and it takes a fucktonne of passion, ambition and love to make something like this; something you faggots haven't, and never will understand.
>Anime today DOES lack detail
anime you remember: movies, high profile shows, OVAs
anime you watch today: all the trash they're spewing out on TV every season
>>122994876 here, that might be the reason. I don't know this Otaking guy.
But honestly, I don't care. Even if he was the most annoying fucktard in the universe this was still cool.
Just like how greasy haired dwellers like yourself are far more offensive to the eyes than people who aren't?
There are plenty of anime that adopt similar colour schemes; it's called a stylistic choice, and regardless of whether you like it or not, it doesn't affect the overall quality much.
The effort he invested in lighting reflections alone sets this fucking miles ahead of most modern anime, but of course, you'll conveniently ignore things like this with that agenda of yours.
we got more than primary colors now. but if you want them saturated watch some show with a lighthearted atmosphere, they usually crank up the color saturation there to make everything look happier. precure, dog days, that rabbit cafe thing.
>implying appearance is all that matters.
The definition of superficial. Either way, the point is cherry picking is for retards.
Which in turn, provides us information on yourself.
People who mindlessly criticize and insult other peoples works on the internet they understand nothing about, often tend to fill the quota I specified above: greasy-haired basement dweller.
>Tie-Fighter anime never
Makes me sad.
>Which in turn, provides us information on yourself.
Where does it say it's an appearance chart?
Just the fact that characters like Noa Izumi and Motoko are on the left, and one-dimensional moeblobs populate the right should give you a fair enough indication.
The homage to the original Tie-Fighter sequence with the flight-check and cockpit scene was pretty great. I liked the shading and details but the rotoscoped animation for scenes where you see people walking in the ship was great.
>tfw Otaking never went with the suggestion to make an Imperial pilot Amuro to go with Not-Char ISD Captain
It's a PICTURE, which provides VISUAL INFORMATION, nothing else. Any information about their personalities is something you already know or learned, the chart didn't tell you that.
I do miss that older anime girls were usually tomboys.
I like tomboys.
>some amateur makes a cartoon that's a billion times superior to any of the big budget Star Wars shows since Tartakovsky's Clone Wars
Jesus, fuck, get it together, Disney.
Stormtroopers being conscripts and/or recruits is one of the first things new canon confirmed on-screen.
ALL HAIL THE NEW CANON
Are those supposed to be good examples?
Two, maybe three, are passable, all the rest look shit.
Not even him, but it doesn't really matter if it's appearance or personality, left wins in both aspects.
Yeah and the CGI series actually has people getting blown apart, characters being graphically killed and shows the lore and fluff of events between Episode II and Episode III in their entirety.
And Sidious being great.
CW micro-series will always be tinted by nostalgia to hype it.
It was. Incredibly fluid, excellent dynamic movements, plenty of weight, fantastic line of action. Really little else since that holds up in sheer terms of animation, that's not a feature length.
The separation between clones and stormtroopers has never really been a secret.
But with certain parts of the internet throwing a hissy fit over the EU canon purge, it's good to point out that a large chunk of non-movie material is still more or less treated as canon by the current production teams.
Even the new Star Wars Commander game which is post-EU liquidlization has EU stuff right back in the canon.
Its pretty nice. I just still miss Heir to the Empire and Thrawn stuff.
>internet throwing a hissy fit over EU canon purge
Dude to be fair, Star Wars had a net worth of about 30 billion USD when Disney bought it and Lucas Arts. Of that revenue, EU novels alone represent over 2.5 billion, and there has always only be a single televised commercial for Star Wars novels and books.
Lots of people loved EU. They put money into it.
>muh spooky ninja Grievous
>m-muh dynamic spin frames
It was stylistic. That doesn't automatically make it "excellent".
I've only seen season 1 and forgotten most of it.
I do remember /co/ turning grievous into a girl though.
Dooku's commander is named Tam, he's from an aquatic species of aliens who strongly resemble bipedal humanoid versions of Great White sharks. He's killed by having an explosive ballistic knives stabbed into his chest and head.
Scene even shows part of his skull and head floating in a small mist of blood as his corpse drops away into the ocean. TCW CGI series has lots of graphic death scenes unlike CW.
Also lots of dead waifus.
Are you trying to tell me Star Wars isn't anime
Do you have an actual argument or are you going to keep replying trying to get the last word in edge wise by saying stupid shit like "overexaggerated movements".
>gee I hope these superhuman space ninja wizards move around realistically
CGI in TCW in the last three seasons was amazing in terms of animation and fluidity. You are just a ponce.
By the time of the original trilogy they had been replaced with regular old stormtroopers, or, as it should have always been to begin with anyway.
Seriously, the clones should have been fighting against the Republic, it makes a million times more sense as a setup. Oh well.
He would have a point in that case, but that's not invaliding the core of what I'm saying.
>stupid shit like "overexaggerated movements".
how is it stupid? I find the way they do their facial expressions quite disturbing because they're cartoonishly exaggerated but have more detailed shading than cartoons.
