    As some of you may recall, Ive made some animated files using some little figures of some EU cahracthers.
    (posted em for reminder)

    What Im proposing is taking it a step further. Making actual cartoons with the figures, complete with a plot.

    However, such an indertaking would require more than what is avalible (the Jacen/Tenel Ka figures I found on one fansite, and the Jaina/Zekk ones I made from the Jacen one, as well as the faces of the various YJKs) so the project would need aditonal artists who have a skill with making small figures like that.


    Thoughts ?

    The idea is better suited for film or art, true, but Im seeking EU fans for it.

    Oh, I frogot to mention. This is officaly sponsored by the YJK Fan Club :-D

    thanks.

    Im wanting to do a bit more though.

    Have a post YJK plot (but ignoring NJO, hey it's me whatcha expect) and have the YJK characthers doing their thing.

    Basicly, have the full plot in the animation. Have written parts and speach appear as a frame with text in it (like in old silent films)

    You do ? Cool.

    Can you draw any ? Try to do Anikan/Tahari in a style similer to the other YJK figures.

    Animated is sweet, but a simple unanimated figure with its hands at its sides is more than enough, as I can take that and modify it for use in animations.

    Make it be in the general stylf of those above animations.

    If you do a head only, make it match the heads in the animation with heads only.

    Okay, here's my suggestion: I've seen a 'trailer' for a comic series, where the person took still pictures and did all sorts of 'camera' shots over them (pan in, pan out, fade, shake, meld from one to the other so that it gave the illusion of motion etc.), added text and backround music, and there you are. Cartoon. It seems to me that something like that would be far more do-able than an actual animation (I've tried to animate, albeit by hand, but it's hard). A team of artists could do the pictures, someone else could do the film... I'd be pretty useless except for finding a score, but I'd do that!

    I can do the animation, as Ive allready shown, I just need the base artwork to animate.

    Im allready started on it somewhat, working by my lonesome for now, but stil havent got a plot decided on yet.
