Well, I posted this as an Update AND in the Gallery, but why not here too?

A remake of an old cartoon I made with Flash just shortly before setting my computer on fire since I hate Flash. It's pretty similar, but a little more realistic now. Enjoy, thanks!

This reminded me fairly strongly of GI Joe.

Really liked the cigar and flamethrower props during it. There's a lot of potential with this one for some great secondary animation. Keep up the good work

Yes, the Petes are the team you go to when you can't afford G.I. Joe. Interesting about the cigar, it was so infuriating to keep in sync I very nearly decided to remove it. Glad you liked it!

I had a go doing a cigarette before, it's pretty hard. Have you tried using one of the 'tashes from the fake beard category? If you adjust the rotation and location of it then, since its an attachment, it'll stay in sync. You could probably add some post processing later to give it a glowly end and some smoke.

I had not thought of that, but it's an excellent idea! Thanks, I'm going to try it when I get home. Lousy work, always getting in the way...

I agree on both counts!

OK, I made an updated version of the last shot, complete with the technique suggested by Jamie. WAAAAY better. I also used something simliar to get the light on Bloodshot's (upper right) miner's helmet to stay in sync. Woo-hoo! Thanks!



I seem to have no luck getting the embedding to work on the videos, so there's the link.

You just need to copy and paste the link into notepad and remove the hyperlink that seems to be automatically included with a URL.

Looks great! Hope to see it made as a series!

So thaaaaat's the trick. OK, I just tested it and if you hit the HMTL button in the posting window and paste the URL it works too since in that mode it doesn't automatically make it a link. Once again, I thank you Jamie!

That was the original idea, but when I saw how much much work it was in Flash I shelved it. WIth Muvizu, it took a week to make, and that includes building the sets and creating the characters. I've already written a pilot for it (3-part episode), I look forward to making it and I'm glad to hear there's interest!
