    LMAO they both made me laugh (audibly out loud)! xD

    I LOVE THEM BOTH <3
    I vote for Miles' just because it seemed more complete, love all the smooth animation, attention to detail and it completes the battle in MapleBattleRoyale.
     
  3. I'm voting Miles for the much more easy to follow animation and because it seemed more complete.

    i'm always loving that action, miles! the humor you incorporate through minor things like emotes and dialogue is always :ok_hand:
    always a pleasure to look at your stuff, dude! (we need to MBR sometime.)

    BUT OOOOOOOH BOY, Sungod. those glitch visuals that you have going on with your character top mine and anyone else's who have done glitch effects for their character. It's done in a way so unique with actual error dialogue boxes popping up and shaky movements of your character and error sounds, it's truly a unique sight and you pull off the visuals really well, so great job on that. just be sure to make a more coherent story next time and you're golden, my guy!

    I'll vote for Miles on this one.

    I like SunGod's rigging and use of transitioning; both of which are pretty crispy :ok_hand:
    The only thing I'd recommend is to increase the amount of frames the text shows up, since the text appears too fast imo.

    Miles, for someone who's "rusty", you've done really well! Your pacing is pretty fluid, and the way you execute your puns makes it very entertaining to watch.

    Overall, you both had some pretty entertaining exposition, but Miles had the fighting in his anim, so I'll give him the point.
    also both of your anims had rocks in them; was that part of the theme?

    Both videos were really good, really hard to choose one of them.
    The character movements and scenery for both animations are top notch.

    Miles: Nice story progression, good amount of fighting, great use of emotes, bouncy text, amazing conclusion.

    SunGod: The story idea was good, but felt like it was lacking a little bit. The idea of glitches/errors happening was neat, the visuals of it were executed really well and left me with a feeling like everything actually was breaking xD. Also should of added longer screentime for text, found myself not being able to read trough it on the 1st go and had to watch the whole thing a 2nd time to actually read it all due to the font changing midway. ^^'' Also admire your choice of music, it really worked in your favor in making the video feel more fluent.

    In conclusion, I vote for Miles.
    Sorry SunGod, I saw Miles video 1st so he kinda left a big impression on me before seeing your part.

    Miles will win.... that's obv. I mean, Miles choreo is fucking amazing. It always was! And the fact that he didn't pull that meme shit again, made me happy 'n wanting for more of his content. I'm dissapointed that you didn't use the rock to smash the shit out of it Miles. Ugh, and the pace. Fucking great!!!
    My only niptick was the map. Front trees weird af, they just don't fit. U should put another tiles type to make it kinda... more appealing. Also you should tune the rain down a bit so the music doesen't get covered by it.

    SunGod bby. Good humour, original-ish enough to make someone laugh! You should keep the text a bit more since it's fastswf not youtube. And you can't pause shit. Chosing a platform to use is also a thing... i guess. But i can't shake off the feeling, that it's half baked. That you had more jokes, but no way to execute them. Maybe it's just me. The text should be bigger with a black glow, hard to see at first. To tickle my fancy, you should use a tad more maplestory charm, it'd fit.



    Yeah.... Miles.





    CAN U GUYS STOP MAKING GLITCH EFFECTS FAST AS FUCK

    Miles is a good boy because: Without using filler, he animated the scene smoothly with a clear beginning, middle and ending. In MBR, this is usually represented by discovery, fight scene and victory. :^)
    Miles is a bad boy because: The rain sounds used were kinda noisy. Like "white noise" noisy. :^(

    SunGod is a good boy because: He introduced his characters' abilities without directly describing them. I've been wondering how he would animate those abilities for some time now, and it was not a disappointment. :^)
    SunGod is a bad boy because: The animation itself, while it did contain a conflict did not create any tension, the climax had no resolution, and the ending of the animation felt entirely unfinished. :^(

    I have to vote for Miles. The deciding factor for me had to have been the storytelling.

    I've already said this to you in a call, but your tweens seem too spontaneous and quick or slow and choppy with no in-between. Other than that, though, pretty solid. The combat felt like short bursts which affected the flow of it all. To cap it all of, I feel your animation can be summarised as a prosaic concept executed well! I liked the lightning gag at the end.

    LionPie:
    Nice job on the animation, physics and the like. The aforementioned glitch effects were good too. But God damn that foot rig of Miles slow as hell. The green text with a green background made it hard to see what was going on - so add an outline or something to your text. Finally, it felt rushed and unfinished around the end. It's really the opposite of Miles for me, an interesting concept executed poorly. The glitch and overall flow felt nice.

    It comes down to enjoyment for me, and in the end, Miles filled the role better, which gets my vote. Cheers to the both of you.

    I voted for miles on this one. I had some laughs and understood what was going on. Animated nicely.
    Sungods, yours was fine too, it was decently animated but felt unfinished. Plus text when by pretty fast and I couldn't tell what was going on.
    but hey, we all have "rocky" starts keep at it.
