If you haven't seen Wonchop's "A Little Less Conversation," you probably never saw my little Easter Egg. Because my portion in the main collab had Jamal the Bombardier Bird and Pete acting like Eddy Gordo from Namco's "Tekken" series, I thought it would be fun to do a little extra prodding. And so, this was made as an addition, noting how people claim Eddy to be a cheap character (BTW, Eddy is my favorite character to play as...such a fascinating fighting style, that Capoeira). :3

This "Special Edition" has better sound quality when compared to the original in the collab. It also has a version with subtitles, which doubles as an experiment... this is my first animation with a "subtitle" option, and I did this one with a little dynamic flair. Tell me what you think of it!

This could be counted as one of the first official animations for Pepper & Co. the voices for Pepper and Ataru were my normal voice stylings, while Kira's voice was my voice modified at a higher pitch. I'm no good at a girl's voice, and hopefully some can assist in that matter when I'm in need. :3

(EDIT (1/15/06): This version has the in-movie music changed, and no menu music. Look in Sheezy Art for the original...)

Great work :) I liked how you managed to get the character's expressions nailed down to a comical yet serious manner. =p

And what sort of Flash and Actionscript did you use? At university I'm using Flash CS4 with AS3. I'll see if I can upload my assignment submissions some time.

I believe at the time I used Flash MX 2004, so it was AS2. (That was the latest version back then...)

I have CS4 right now, and I'm not certain about how some of the additions work, so I'm sorta sticking to what I already know.

The animation is 24 FPS. As for how good I supposedly am, it's a mix of being taught the program via college and discovering what works via trial and error.

24? Oh that explains it. I've been using 20 FPS for my first Flash Assignments at university.

:lol: Very good...but if they're both playing as cheap characters, wouldn't that make it OK since it presumably means they'll have a fair fight? Also, will we ever get to see Olive appear in one of your Flash animations?

I looked carefully at Eddy Gordo in Tekken 5, admittedly my favorite fighter to play as (though I don't use him in a "cheap" way). Somehow Jamal and Pete were given the Capoeira style. X3

Actually, I used a lot from Tekken 5. The "VS." screen and menu were based on the game, and the *real* version of this cartoon had music from it as well. And yes, the announcer and sound effects too. :3

I noticed the menu and stuff looked like one of the newer Tekken games (which I only played in a game store). It seems you've done it really well, and matching your style :)

Thanks! It was tough getting this animated at such a fast framerate, but it turned out nice. I may want to do something slower for the next Pepper & Co. toon. Like maybe 15 or 18 instead of 24.

MalamiteLtd Featured By Owner Jan 24, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
The numbers aren't just related to Flash there. A lot of folks value frame rate in video games. The smoothest frame rate I've seen is 60 frames per second. Frames per second is the number I've been saying.

Basically when it comes to frame rate, the higher the number, the smoother the animation's gonna be. But in Flash that consequently means a 5-second animation requires more animation frames than the lower frame rates.

This is really cute Malamite! Love the voice acting in this. The sibtitle feature looks incredibly cool too.

I'd be interested in doing some voice acting for you aswell. After all, you are doing some for me.

Do you do the characters mouths on the computer or do you draw them??

MalamiteLtd Featured By Owner Jan 21, 2006  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks! It was a new experience working at that framerate, and the subtitles were a bit of an exercise too. :3

I'll let you know when I've got something that needs some extra voices. In the world of Pepper & Co., that definitely would require a helping hand.

I did all the character models on the computer with no drawings underneath. The same was true for the other Flash cartoons I did. Only on still Flash-made pictures do I sometimes do that procedure of tracing the drawings. :3

Well, Flash is a vector program. I mainly used the line and pencil tools to draw things, then use the black arrow and Smooth/Straighten tools to adjust things. It takes some time, but can make things look nice and smooth when finished. :3

I can't do a girl's voice very well. It requires speeding up my voice AND getting it to sound feminine. The latter was the harder part. X3

Finally!

This was a great flash, well worth the wait. The thing that confuses me is Ataru's voice, which sound kinda deep. I always imagined him to sound more like Siras from Yugi-Oh GX.

Also, if you need my services for voice talent, I'll be there, just as soon as I can figure out how to record voices on the computer.

Nah, that's the kind of voice I wanted Ataru to have. When you hear him whimper it makes him sound that much pathetic. X3

And I'll be sure to look you up when I need some extra voices. :3
