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.

I've heard of this one called Pencil. I tried downloading it, but it wouldn't let me for some reason. I'll have mom look at it later... I think I've actually heard of Toonboom. I'll look into that one. :3

Oh yeah I heard about Pencil too, though I forget if it gave me a bad or good impression on it.
I heard Toonboom was good because you could add special effects and other stuff on top of it (apparently the newest version isn't supported on my computer tho)

I can't beleive how cute this is. This was the ever-so-famous-among-anime-foreshadowing-episode! AKA: the episode that lets you in on the main basis orbackstory of the animation and tempts you by feeding you tidbits of the magic system to try to lure you into it all, then totally drops the huge foreshadowing in a moment of confused urgency making your head spin out of control with endless possibilities for these newfound characters! ^^

Gosh, I wish I had a little robo fighter loli who I made by programming a custom computer built inside her seemingly human body! It'd be like the perfect imouto! Oh, how I wish I had a cute little magical girl AI system for an imouto!! Dangit, Drew! You're making me jealous and all anticipation-y!

AKA: the episode where things get interesting! :dummy:

I wish LyDia was real too, she'd be cool to hang out with. :meow:
But who said she wasn't human? :o

I guess you could sum it up that way... But for those non-anime-fans I had to specify a little. Also, I wanted to talk a lot. Talking's fun as long as you don't actually ever open your mouth a cool computer's doing it all for you!

Heck yeah she would!!! I bet she's good at, like, everything! I would get art tips from her!

Nobody said she wasn't human. It's just my fan theory. I make them up with every series I like.

Its just fun watching people's theories and their reactions when I give them more mystery X3
