We could even do an effect similar to this for Gamzee's attack, and then just show the aftermath.
@Bellstrom: Rock on.
@Differential: Straight-up Tavros. You are the best.
It's partially "How do I make this look like it's teleporting in" and partially "Okay, how do I make this sync up with the music." The syncing looks like the hardest part, just because the warps are so frequent. :Xi think it's as simple as dissecting this gif
not that it has to be done the exact same way
Yes it did.It bore correcting.
Also, for Gamzee's attack, I sort of imagined it as a really quick flashing sequence of images (sort of like the stuff that happened in the latest flashes), that sort of give you the idea that he's attacking, but not actually what he's doing. Then we see the aftermaths/explosion.
i realized i can help with storyboarding some parts
forgive me if it's been stated somewhere but what program were you planning on using to put this together
I'm using Flash CS5. Not entirely a professional at it, but I know most of the necessary basics. :X
4/12 Battle-ready Trolls (and Gamzee)
The Red Team is nearly complete! I just need to add Kanaya.
e: I'm using tinypic from now on... Imageshack keeps resizing my stuff and making the quality all grainy and weird. >:[

Hiiii, I'm new to the forum, it's my first post, and just to explain right away my sometimes weird grammar, English isn't my first language.
I wasn't registered when I noticed this thread, but since I want to help the project, well, here I am! I know how to animate on Flash and Photoshop (still learning though, but I'm actually studying animation and learning a lot of things) , I can draw and I can do storyboards and animatics (if it's needed ).
Here's my Deviantart gallery, if you want to see what I can do : http://petiteetoile.deviantart.com/gallery/
i storyboarded vriska's part but it's really rough and subject to some change
gif to save space
the slow music goes well with a lot of scrolling
the times are not exact but you get the idea

@t00swift: Get out of my head! This is almost EXACTLY what I imagined! I think the way you have things laid out will make for a very dramatic ending.
anyway i probably didn't time it right but there are eight of those ting-ting-ting-ting chimes
technically i only drew seven onlookers so i'll have to figure something out with that
i'm not sure what the order of trolls should be, aside from that i think gamzee should be last
in fact i'm not sure he's even looking at it
The OP says the King could be hit with a fireball or something, but I'd like to suggest that maybe he explodes.
As the final scream builds up, he starts to glow blue from within and then he is completely obliterated by a fireball/explosion/whathaveyou in the shape of the Light symbol as the thunder cracks.
sort of like this in "[s] jade: enter." ???
I actually think that the main problem with deciding Vriska's attack is that it has to be either less powerful or ambiguously comparable to Gamzee's attack -- according to Karkat, anyhow.
So... yeah. What the 88888888 roll does is kind of up-in-the-air.
[QUOTE]I can work on Terezi's part, or any other part that needs drawings and storyboards. And I guess that when the pre-production of the project will be done, I can provide drawings of the characters and other things, and animate stuff too./QUOTE]
Doing Terezi's part would be pretty cool, if that's what you're up for.

The 88888888 roll does something to the king's scepter
Let's say I'll try to do something for those parts :
2:05 - 2:12 - Terezi steps over Karkat (who is semi-unconscious on the ground). Shots of her grinning maniacally, holding dragon-sword cane.
2:13 - 2:22 - Terezi slowly walks to the edge of the lily pad platform, slicing at encroaching tentacles with the dragon-sword cane.
2:23 - 2:32 - Terezi leaps off the platform and plunges the dragon-sword cane into one of the king's eyes (the EYE-rony!) on the last note.
2:33 - 2:55 - Black King reels backward. Crabclaw cuts trolls' platform lily pad in half. The Trolls are forced to jump to different lily pads. Terezi could be helping a still-disoriented Karkat. Maybe Vriska fluttering with god tier wings. Equius might be strongjumping with Nepeta in tow. Tavros could have the spaced-out Gamzee as a passenger. Kings' remaining eyes might also be firing red-blue beams ala Sollux, forcing the trolls to dodge those too. Everybody reaches new lily pads safely.
