Okay here's a new one. I took the input from the other topic and animated it a bit more. I'm pretty new to cartoon animations, so it's still pretty simple, but I'd like to keep them simple anyway. Enjoy!

Keep it up, getting better all the time.

#3 Posted by Dylabaloo (1549 posts) -

Sorry but Jeff looks nothing like Jeff and Ryan should to be a big bigger. Funny otherwise.

#4 Posted by Callumz (26 posts) -

Haha. Nice.

#5 Posted by Sarumarine (2173 posts) -

Oh man. Ryan's stab motions with each "uh" made this video. I think you should do this as many times as you want before you get totally sick of it. They're great.

#6 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6320 posts) -

It was a lot better when you weren't trying to lip synch. 
 
If you want to lip synch, then look up tutorials and practice more before you try this again. 
 
It just makes it looks really shitty the way it is now. 
 
It  just does. 
 
I'm being fucking supportive of this, okay?

#7 Posted by DougQuaid (1271 posts) -

Oddly satisfying.

#8 Posted by Guyzea (815 posts) -

That was really good. You are hereby ordered to make, uh uh uh uh uh, more.

#9 Posted by MeatSim (10768 posts) -

Jeff doesn't look right but still good work.

#10 Posted by luce (4045 posts) -

Ryan and Jeff should be fatter and Jeff has black hair i think
 
But you know what? I dont even care. That was Hilarious

#11 Posted by Choi (536 posts) -

Hey man, that's amazing! Kudos!

#12 Posted by Hirashin (64 posts) -
@LordXavierBritish:  Yeah I thought it would. I think it's mostly because I am using Vegas. I don't know flash at all, which I assume is what should be used. Personally I prefer the non-animated one more. But I guess I'll see what everyone else thinks.

awesome

Vinny's face when he said ''uh uh uh uh uh'' in the beginning was fucking priceless. 

#15 Edited by Mr_Skeleton (5137 posts) -

The room looks way too ventilated, aside from that good work.

#16 Posted by august (3827 posts) -

Yeah I'd say concentrate on facial expressions and the meaning of every moment and coming up with crazy props and asides and stuff rather that actually trying to animate their mouths.

#17 Posted by OmegaPirate (5523 posts) -

That was incredible dude, honestly keep going at this stuff its amazing :D

I preferred the non-animated one as well. Your timing is actually pretty good, and if it wasn't for the mouthes distracting me I probably would have enjoyed this one just as much. 
 
if you really want to improve these you should really get Flash or one of the free alternatives though. It isn't that difficult to learn, at least if you just want to do simpler things like this. The only thing you might have trouble with is converting .flv files to a video format that will work on Youtube, but there are programs to do that.

This. I actually preferred the first one because you did just that. 
 
Still awesome though. 
 
If you called it Giant-Bombcast-Illustrated, then no one would have complained about the limited number of frames.
#20 Posted by Soapy86 (2620 posts) -

Great improvement. Keep it up!

#21 Posted by Ravenousrattler (1417 posts) -

yeah uh uh uh uh uh keep um comin buddy, i likes me some animation synced to  the most memorable parts of the bombcast.

#22 Posted by Demigonis (192 posts) -

I approve! These are great, keep them coming. :D

#23 Posted by Flaboere (344 posts) -

This is fantastic work i think! Just great! Only thing is, you should work a little more on Jeff, give him his little beard, and maybe a little thicker neck. As someone stated, it doesn't look JUST like him yet. 

#24 Posted by Hirashin (64 posts) -
@august:  Yeah I like that idea. Animating the mouths would be more work than drawing something for each moment. Thanks. 
 
@jukezypoo: Not a bad idea, I may do that instead. 
 
@luce:  I think I can get them to look better for the next one. 
 
@LordXavierBritish:  I'll probably not animate mouths as much on future ones, and learn flash on the side. I've always wanted to so this is a good enough reason to try.

@Hirashin: Okay. 
 
Good.
#26 Posted by Ryax (4630 posts) -

i believe the next step is to animate a whole bombcast

#27 Posted by evildeadron (830 posts) -
@Hirashin: dont stop making these, and i would like to make a request for a future one ,12-16-08 bombcast the discussion about ryan and jeff going to the cereal bar with vinny and brads reaction to it 
 
cheers
#28 Posted by Damien (1384 posts) -

The first one was perfect.  No need to make it more animated.

#29 Posted by Atlas (2430 posts) -

Wow, I really enjoyed watching that. But to echo previous comments; yes, Jeff needs some work. He just doesn't look quite enough like him. Aside from that, kudos.

#30 Posted by MarkWahlberg (4578 posts) -

 It's the weird visualizations of what's going on that makes these good; I really liked how you added the 'Press' hat and notebook to Jeff at that one part. Do more of that kind of thing. And keep the facial animations.  
 
BTW, doing one of these for the Wii/DSi ware segments would be beautiful.

#31 Posted by Yummylee (21270 posts) -

Fuck everyone else's opinion up the nostril. That was faabbbulous!

#32 Posted by Hirashin (64 posts) -
@MarkWahlberg:  As it happens my idea for the next one was the My Notebook Pearl from the recent cast.

Great job dude, pretty hilarious.

#35 Posted by goodwood (600 posts) -

that was oddly awesome.

#36 Posted by WitchHunter_Z (882 posts) -

Really good dude. I too think you should focus less on the lip syncing, and more on the facial expressions and gags.

#37 Posted by Deusoma (3001 posts) -
@Hirashin: 
Fantastic. Many a lol was had at this video, nicely done.
#38 Posted by FunExplosions (5407 posts) -

Dude. Fantastic again.

#39 Posted by NinjaHunter (972 posts) -

Yeah you don't have to focus on the lip sync or moving mouths that much. I do really enjoy the changes in facial expressions though. Like when they all go squinty eyed any time someone said "uh, uh, uh, uh, uh." Beside the lip sync stuff everything was great. I enjoyed it.

#40 Posted by Daveyo520 (6652 posts) -

LOL! Great job!

Would you rather if they were Giant Lobsters? of course it matters Jeff and Ryan are fat deal with it they seem to just fine.
#43 Posted by Droop (1828 posts) -

I'm learning Flash, so might start doing something like this :) Nice work man.

#44 Edited by pisk (66 posts) -

This one is also great. I like it more when their lips move (that's also how they usually do it in ricky gervais show fan animations)

that actually sounds better if they were lobsters
#46 Posted by supermike6 (3540 posts) -

I think this was better than the last one! Even if the mouth doesn't prefectly line up, it still looks a lot better. I liked the extra touches you threw in there, very clever. Keep it up!

#47 Posted by FizzleNizzleBear (335 posts) -

the part were Jeff put on the reporter hat was amazing.
