Hey everyone! I had a fun Idea, I wanted to try and write the "Twas the Night before Christmas", Staring us! Now, You can request to be apart of it, and if you can see where you would fit in to my story, you may post suggestions Now, there will be a few little rules for my story collab okay? 1. It has to be safe for kids to read. Why? Well... lets just say, I don't like stories with sexual content or cursing, I can accept some humorous partying and such to be in the story. ( I just can't put my name on a story with cursing ) 2. I will try and fit people in in the order they request to be added, that way I can fit as many as possible. 3. Any tidbits you want to submit must be in the "Twas the Night Before Christmas" style, for example: "Twas the Night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for Captain Dwibbs" it does not have to rhyme though, just maintain a rhythm (If you can;'t get it that way, I can help ya out . ) So that is my rules, and yeah, if you want to submit pieces for the story, I would be glad to try and add them And if more people are willing to write for it, I can make a list and put it in an order so you know which part you will be writing then . I think to avoid confusion, you should post actual written parts via PM, and Ideas and requests to be included can be discussed here . I hope this goes well and that we can all have fun! ( Oh yeah, any written parts will be credited to their authors ) EDIT: Okay, i am going to give a little leway for some side story stuff, as long as it does not interfere with the flow of the poem too much. Thanks Kablamjamdan for posting the link for the original poem. (post below) And I will post some more inspiration of what I am shooting for here:
Hello all! Christmas is just around the corner, so it's time to get the old tree old of the loft, and try to fit all of those decorations on it without the darned thing falling over... \/ # LATEST TREE HERE # \/ As you can see, the tree is bigger and more a tad more realistic than last year. RULES: The same order of events is in play, just reply saying you want to add a creation to the tree and I'll add you to list, PMing you when it's your turn. Please download the latest version of the tree (Which will be shown above for ease of access) and add your decoration. No skipping or just showing up and adding to the tree, ask first, then I'll PM when it's your turn. The tree must remain the same size and dimensions when re-uploaded. For page length, please upload your updated tree into your original post, in spoiler tags. Please save the file as BMP or PNG for image quality. Please write your name in relatively small writing in the yellow box (you don't have to include your name if you don't want to). Decorations can be anything as long as it's a image and meets the forum's Safe for Work policy, but please keep them within the recommended size. No jagged edges or square block cut-outs please.Rounded baubles or characters on transparent backgrounds make good decorations. In order to keep things orderly (last year was a bit chaotic), I've marked spaces on the tree with Xs to show where people can place their creations. There are 20 spaces on the tree (Including the topper). The Maximum allowed size is 95 by 95 px. Alternatively, you can leave a present under the tree, but the same size restrictions apply, and It must not obscure a decoration. Obscuring or removing of others people's contributions is not allowed. If for whatever reason you're unable to contribute when you said you would, the baton will pass to the next person in line. If you want to drop out at any time, either leave a comment here or PM me. Let's get out there and have fun folks! Participatants: Due to the limited amount of space, I can only see 25 available spaces (5 extra for presents or incase anyone drops out.
Good evening. Okay, I believe I briefly mentioned this in my showcase topic. I was considering using that topic for this, but figured it could get pretty confusing. Also though about using the previous animation topic, but considering how many changes I made, I thought it best to start with a new one. So, who remembers this? I'd hate to come across as dragging this out, but to be honest, an animation was going to be the next stage of this project from almost the beginning. I also wanted to keep a couple of my favourite ideas from the original animation project we had planned, while hopefully changing things in a way that will make things easier for those that have not fully mastered there chosen art form. Like me wanting to help with the animation, I'd say I'm below a beginner in terms of skill. ^^; Currently the project does not have a deadline! So what's different? Well the original suggested an episodic type of deal with stories and dialogue. This new version doesn't need dialogue or sound effects, because if will follow alone with the chosen music. It also has a basic story that I came up with, completely by accident. There's a story?? Yes, the whole thing turned into one big metaphor. I'll write it in a spoiler tag. What did you keep? One of the key ideas I think we all like from the original is that SSMB is represented as a town or city. With buildings representing different topics of sections of the board. Why did you show that pic again?? Did I not say? ...oops, heheh. The characters featured in the animation will be the same characters featured in that image. Possibly also including those in the "DLC" list and a couple of special guests too. But I can't promise everyone will make the cut. Please don't be offended if your not featured, it wont be personal. I have chosen the condition that if a character is feature in a dance segment, they wont appear in the story segments. What's the music? Well I've always had a song playing in my head when thinking about it. So I'd nominate Crush 40s Sonic Youth. But if anyone has a better idea, please share. It's not set in stone yet, but I'd suggest picking a song as one of the first things to be done as it helps determine how long the video will be. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bQ-jrf9UuGM Also toying with the idea of a second song that could play during an end credits type section. If anyone has any ideas. We could also use a completely customized song from one of our musical members if everyone can agree on one. Here's a possible end credit theme suggested by KaBlamJamDan: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrqXpYwS9nI What do you need? Well, we don't really have to assign each member with a certain task for the moment, if that makes it easier. Just do whatever you feel like. But in terms of tasks, I'd say these: Several designs for buildings and areas within the SSMB City. I'd personally like a park area with a solid gold Sonic statue in the centre and a train station, for the hype train to travel alone. Half of the video will take place in "The Badlands" an area with a similar look to the place that Roadrunner and Wile E Coyote live. So we'd need designs for that too. Designs for the dance segments, places like on stage in dance halls or on a random street. Maybe even a fancy colourful background with lots of shapes. Members that aren't confident in drawing designs still want to help in some way, if would be cool if they located screenshots or art from the games that can be incorporated into the animation. Like a screenshot of the blimp in Radical Highway. It'll make things easier for the designers if a link for reference material was just in reach. I'll add links to all the concepts, reference material and any other useful stuff in the opening post. Props, we might need special props designed too. Anything that will give the backgrounds a little more character. Mostly just designing the areas the characters will be at. Once we have a solid collection of designs, the best ones are picked and need to be draw a clean version of, so it can be used as a background. Other jobs will include the optional creating a music track if it is desired, while the animation doesn't need to begin until much later. No doubt I'm forgetting something, but lets move on. So, the reason I called the story a big metaphor is because of what the monster represents. I've named him "Doubt" and his massive size represents a wall. So the character represents a wall of doubt that prevents you from moving forward. That is also why the citizens couldn't defeat it on there own. Consider Sonic representing all video games, hobbies, TV show or whatever you use to motivate and inspire you. That's why Sonic could easily beat it. Here's a quick size guide I mocked up: I also planned to reference a peace of art Inferno created. I've been sketching very rough panels to try and show what's playing in my head. The Inferno art I'm talking about is here: I also jotted down a segment I call "Rooftop Run" featuring Gabe. These sketches don't do my vision justice. I always picture Gabe leaping from buildings similar to how Sonic jumps to each rock in the Sonic CD intro. That would look awesome, if we could achieve it. Dance segment?? What do you mean by that? I haven't properly covered what I meant by dance segment. But I suspect the other otaku of the boards know what I meant. I should still cover it for those that might not know. These gifs in the spoiler tag are pretty much what I'm talking about when I refer to the dance segments. Just like in the gifs, each dancer are doing the same moves, regardless of how many there is.
