I've changed the actual title of the series because frankly the title "Original Character Tournament" is too general. There are many other OCTs on the internet and this is just another of them.
The new title is called, "Dareva's Last Will OCT" because that is the name of the OCT.
Well, another round complete, at least for me anyway. It's been almost exactly 3 months since I started it so I'm glad its more or less finished.
So, any challenges this time? Yes. First off, I included an extra character this time, who happened to have been beaten in the previous round by my opponent of this round. In other words, Sarah who was beaten by Raenn joins up with her according to *Warlock0103
's winning entry of Round 1.
Second, I incorporated more of the story that *Mythical-Human
has put in this tournament, because of course a simple tournament where characters battle each other isn't very interesting in my opinion.
Third, more dialogue, hence more of acting animation. I think I'm happy with my skills in that.
Fourth, you've noticed the fire animation? It was from stock Symbols given to me by a pro elemental animator.
However I almost thought I couldn't pull off arranging them together.
Fifth, backgrounds. I like them better this time.
I didn't have many performance problems this time (involving brush strokes) but Flash did
crash a few times though I'm used to it by now.
So whether or not the deadline is this Monday I'm glad I actually finished early. I thought it would be a close call again, but apparently the second half of the animation went pretty smoothly. Anyways, time to relax/fix errors. I think there's some performance issues going on on my computer and if you think you're getting them too let me know.
And yes, Sarah did catch up to Raenn rather quickly.
