"There is still an echo inside this steel shell"

Animation for :iconburntbacon8r: for his sound-driven robodragon.  Starting off the year big!  He also got the opportunity to voice his own character for me!  This was a tremendous challenge, really testing what I can implement in an animation for dA (curse the 30mb size limit though, had to downscale considerably).

I hope you guys like this one!  It was a real trip!

Stunning, incredible work. The music was a perfect choice for this, and the entirety of the  opening was a beautiful build up. This definently gets the blood pumping.

I can look at this animation over and over again, it's just so fancy and so well done!:heart: 
It really looks like a screen from LOL, the shading is so amazing and the movements are so clean!
Your other creations are really great too!

I look at your stuff and I am amazed.

But then when I think of commissioning now I am like: ". . . .Maybe this isn't such a good idea. ."

Each of these looks like they'd be worth $1k-$2k even for minor things. Not saying that to be rude or anything but..I've seen more currency for less animation. Then again the person doesn't animate often and nor does anyone get an animation but for an icon! So its...a weird paradigm.

DanSyron Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2018
nah its ok, i get what youre saying.  This definitely was not in that price range but I can see why you say that.  It really depends on demand for art.  Sometimes other artists charge more for less because there is simply more demand for their work or they are better at pricing their art than I am, which admittedly I'm pretty bad at.  This was one of my most complex pieces so far but I have a ton of methods to speed up the process through automation and asset reuse.  Its project specific.  That said I do offer animated stuff that runs way cheaper than this one.  This is the highest offered tier I have without entering the commercial production tiers.

Ivan-Typhlosion Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2018
Pffft! Well, commercial stuff is not what I would go for unless it was actually required from me. But yeah, weird paradigm that happens with supply and demand. Or the artist's choice!

Also I have no idea what your prices are. But I am not sure if you are bad or not!Luffy OP Icon 20
