I was thinking an actual throw, not a toss (I meant more like throwing a Javelin.) And showing Nepeta from the front as she flies to Pounceslash the king. Also, without the failures.
Also, regarding Tavros. The fact he can potentially control an army to help the troll's is alone pretty badass in my book. IMO his death should be the height of his character, but that's exactly what it is: my opinion.
Okay, cool. That's cool.@obselescence
i am still working on the glub and aradiabot situation
I guuueesss.Is it strictly necessary for Tavros to fail while everyone gets to be a badass? It is in the song notes, but it just seems like it detracts from the epicness for me.
I guess the general sentiment (and the cool factor) behind it is in the whole "Tavros does some really rocking flying to a crazy-awesome violin solo." It's theoretically possible he manages to jab at the Black King once or twice, but I think Tavros is basically intended to go down without doing anything particularly important.
And this is cool too. I think we'd probably want the non-bloodied, non-black Deuce Clubs, though, since Gamzee hasn't clubbed any of the trolls yet.The Bard of Rage charges in!
I think maybe this image would be for when Gamzee jumps off the platform?
Or maybe -- and this is throwing ideas out -- we just have a whole bunch of images flash by during the "scream" that leads up to Gamzee's attack, and this one (with the clubs all bloodied) shows up as one of those images.
But yeah this is cool.
Huh.I stumbled across this at some point and thought it had some good things in there. I'm not saying it's ZOMG TEH BEST THING EVAR but it has a few ideas that I have seen in this thread (fastball Nepeta, Karkat slicing shit up) and some things that might be cool and maybe kill some empty space that needs filling (I'm not sure how you all want to do Vriska's dealio, but this involves a bit with a Magic 8 ball that I like).
This is actually pretty cool considering all of it was made in roughly a week (and I guess it's kind of easy to tell). Yeah, this could be a pretty solid source of basic ideas. Nepeta-Equius fastball special is just good Hivebents, though. :P
I guess maybe I'm not explaining things really well, so the closest thing I could bring up as an example of what I'm talking about is the flip-out right before the walkaround part of [S] Seer: Descend. Basically this spaz-sequence of Gamzee images that leads up to a "boom."
I think it'd fit in well with the "scream" lead-up to the actual attack landing.
Reaction shots could be shown in the rain-falling after the attack maybe?
Anyhow, it's just my thoughts on what could be done.
i was for reaction shots during the rainfall
then maybe right after that you show the king missing one of his heads or something to make it clear
but leading up to that i think he should just be walking, random camera shifts in time with the varied honks
until the rage part i mean
White clubs are the file default, without blood. They're only black because this image has no BG, so if I made them white he'd be holding magic invisible juggalo clubs and looking the fool, and only bloody because it was going up on DA as well as here.
Editing to add: Shit, weaponized Faygo. No one says he HAS to just use the clubs, and he IS a one-man Dark Carnival.

Gotcha.White clubs are the file default, without blood. They're only black because this image has no BG, so if I made them white he'd be holding magic invisible juggalo clubs and looking the fool, and only bloody because it was going up on DA as well as here.
OK I put the spots back on his clownpants, fixed a minor error, and threw a *cheap* background up behind white-club Gamzee:
The file is still in layers so if you want to use the shot you can just hide the background and paste Mr. Makara wherever. I can upload a PSD if anyone wants it.
I also volunteer to do some shocked faces, as goggling disbelief is one of my favorite expressions to illustrate. Right after doofy confusion.
If we don't want to show Gamzee's actual attack, we could show one of the Black King's blood-spattered crowns clattering to the ground on the last hOnKs. Then when the King's next small interlude starts before Vriska's section we can show that one of his heads has been completely torn off.

Oh, I vote Karkat's famous shocked face from after Eridan's killing spree to be used as his shocked face. It's just too fitting. xD

In the least offensive way possible.
Oh my Gog, this is so cool
About Gamzee's attack, I had an idea: maybe we could see the scene from very far away, with the king's silhouette being brutalized, but we still don't know what is Gamzee exactly doing. There could be quick inserts of him in murder mode at the same time (something like "BK from far away, Gamzee's murder face, BK from far away again, gamzee's murder face, etc.") And then we see something that looks like a big explosion, and we return to the trolls reactions and the rain of blood.
Annnnnd a little bit more of Terezi's storyboard.
Someone suggested that she flips a coin, so I tried to incorporate it.

I guess the main thing to look out for with the Terezi storyboard would be making sure that it fits squarely in the allotted theme time given for Terezi (roughly 27 seconds). So... something to keep in mind, I guess.
Otherwise, keep up the good work!
Yeah, Black King shots would be nice. Particularly if intended for the beginning.Finally getting off of stuff I've been neck deep in. It doesn't look like much of black king has been done yet, so I'll try and get some sketch sprites up by tonight of him.
I'm the dude that popped up for one minisucle post offering to help and then disappeared, but I'm back now!
I've never tried animation, which is not to say I couldn't do it but that I'm not privy to techniques or anything like that; it would best to leave that to people other than me. All I have the software to make is .GIFs and Flashes, anyway, and I've heard Flash is fuckhard to pick up?
I'd definitely be game for any number of still shots, in Hero mode style or something similar.
Examples of my previous endeavors:
Jack Noir, done in an attempt at Hussie's style but slightly off. http://ycobb.deviantart.com/art/Bec-Noir-190686222
WARNING, oc inbound. This is much closer to hussie's style, as far as I can tell, but the head is a bit too detailed. http://ycobb.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3bq7tc
And, finally, here is an example of my more common style, though it's not MSPA related. http://ycobb.deviantart.com/gallery/?offset=24#/d338y37
I've been fancying trying my hand at a shot of the Black King for a while, so I might whip something like that up. Maybe a near-full body shot, from the perspective of the ground?
