Here's a brand new preview of this month's Troll Slayer episode! I think the show finally has a coherent style now that I have the hang of Toonboom's amazing animation tools.
Hehe. Just watched the first two episodes and the third episode preview. I like. The animation kind of bugs me, how he's constantly doing the same expressions and just sort of... bobbing left and right, like a pendulum. >_> Aside from that, though, while this isn't the most creative idea, it has a few laughs in it. The character himself is pretty boring, just a stereotype, which is, of course, entirely the point, but even so, this whole things seems to lack real spirit. I think more body language and not so much, well, repeating expressions and swaying would really help.
Also, the voice is beautifully spot-on. I admit, it's pretty much the whole reason why I stuck around for it. Great voice acting.
Oh, and nice choice of colours for him. It works.
Here's this month's episode:
Hey Scented Pliers, thanks for the feedback! I'll keep your comments in mind. I'm pumping these out pretty quick (my goal is once a month and so far I've met that goal) so I reuse a lot of poses and expressions haha. When your character is just sitting in front of a camera there's only so much you can do animation wise.
And yeah, he's basically a stereotype, but I think he's slowly but surely developing into a unique character as we figure his personality out.
Haha, this one is my favourite. XD Probably in part because I think you're getting into your groove more, and I'm starting to get to know the character and show itself better.
Yeah, I can see what you mean there. The poses in this episode were pretty good, though! It had the same pendulum problem, but overall, I liked the addition of terrified poses and the like in this one. X)
Also, insects are awesome. And so are the wolf spiders that live on my desk. s(~_o)b

Hmm, ok I'll see what I can do about the pendulum problem.
And yes, insects are awesome And I see those wolf spiders all the time around my place. They're pretty cool.
Nice to see another episode up. ^^ (I swear I'm not stalking you, I just happened to visit this forum's Original Visual section for inspiration and went looking for your videos!) I laughed so hard at it. Maybe because I felt the exact same way when I played Amnesia. XD Right down to the "did I say scared... I meant happy... I want to go give Slenderman a hug" sentiment.
I was starting to laugh at loud when we got to the part with the truck, but I laughed out loud at "FAT MEN WEARING CASUAL CLOTHES" so hard that I started to cry so GOOD JOB. These are definitely getting funnier, lol! Seriously, from about... 9:30 onwards it was completely hysterical.
As a side note, I am reminded of this image:
Hope to see more from you soon! =)
(yes i totally ended up doing just like he did and just... went to go give the enemy in amnesia a hug. NOT AS PLANNED D: )
