    Heya, so partway through the collab, Yegor received a notice that he'd been drafted his country's army. Due to this unfortunate circumstance, he wasn't able to see the collab through. Thus, from here on out, I'll be the one hosting this collab alongside Drew and Juan.

    Past installments:

    Rules:

    • We encourage the usage of any of the following programs for this collab : Flash/AE/FW
    • Your parts will be animated in 30/24 fps
    • Canvas size will be 16:9
    • You must fade in and fade out your part.
    • Music not allowed in final production (Final export has to have no songs || EXCEPTION: Can have song if animation >1 minute or something like that)
    • You can add any kind of mob, but make sure that the sandbag summons them.
    • You are allowed to make the sandbag attack back using Sai’s powers (AKA the claws or any other effect but make sure it’s hued in purple).
    • DO NOT add Sai into your animation, we have a set story for him.
    • DO NOT go outside of the map, that includes the castle in the background and under the water (that is saved for the finisher with a certain story). You can still animate the fight on water or on the grass patch in the background, just don’t go outside of the map.
    • Anything else is allowed, as long as you follow the general theme of beating up a sandbag
    • You may somewhat edit or create your own Maple Weapon; just keep the general leafy and red color theme.
    • As you finish, you may send the .swf/.gif/.fla (We suggest you send an .swf for the best quality).
    • Respect each other, no unnecessary flame.
    • Good luck, have fun!

    Due date: 5th of April

    There will be a checkup on January 15th, as well as February 15th
    Several collab participants are going to be quite busy; Juan's got a whole other collab to worry about, for one. I do request that participants pick a checkup date as a personal deadline to finish if possible, as opposed to picking march 15.

    Start date: Right away! (Dec 14)

    Available Weapons:

    This is a list of the currently available weapons; we encourage creativity which you'll use for the special weapons that are placed inside the red squares, feel free to apply with your own!

    Two things:

    1. Many people are involved with the elaboration of the finisher, as of now I'm the main animator and If we're gonna make this thing by march I'll definitely need help from someone else. I'm looking for someone who is:
    • Animation responsible and organized.
    • Will not have too significant real life obligations for the next three months.
    • Specializes in animating combos and medium-fast paced fights.
    If you are interested in working with us, please show me a couple of your best animations privately, you can do it through a conversation here in MM or Discord.



    2. Just gonna drop a few ideas for some of the special weapons, In my opinion they should be way more interesting to animate than your normal swing and stab poses, It's practically the same actions with different weapons...

    Helmet - It's not a rule but, if you take a look at the past installments you'll notice most of them follow some sort of progression towards the final "version" of the weapon, for the helmet theres one that looks like a dragon so yeah, it could give your character dragon powers or something, then it becomes the one you see in the reference; the one with the green gem; I think of lasers.

    Snowboard - Ice magic, avalanches, freezing the lake, snowboarding animation...

    Mask - Your character becomes maple-man, attacks with maple leaves and gains wind/grass powers; orange/reddish hue on the skills.

    Battle Greaves - This, exactly this, with the floating and the little rocket boost things.


    Here's the spritesheet for that, or you can make your own too and the only requirement is that they have to have the maple weapon palette: http://www.mediafire.com/file/4cqrmxnnz28ap44/Iron+Boots.zip

    So far, the Maple Dagger and Maple Knuckle have become available.

    EDIT: There were some swaps; Dagger and Knuckle are now taken, 1H sword and Snowboard are now open.

    A fair number of participants have come to me with reasons for being unable to finish before the deadline - real life is hitting them really hard right now. I am therefore extending the due date for this collaboration by 3 weeks.

    New due date: April 5
