Fate Saga Shot 108 by Saetje Fate Saga Shot 108 by Saetje
Hey guys!
Here's a shot I animated for Dana Corrigan's 2010 Fate Saga Trailer. For my shots, I got to mostly animate the villain of the premise, Cyrus, who is a manic, scythe-weilding fire mage.

It was a ton of fun. :B

Also, I totally learned how to make animated GIFS! I can now control the currency of the internet. :D

You can find more insights about this (and another scene I animated) on my blog, which will now be updating every other Sunday. It's not Sunday right now, though, but my blog uploaded this one early and I figured I'd just roll with it since if I take it down now it will still show up on people's list of watched blogs..

Animated by: *Saetje
Directed by/Clean up: ~neo-dragon
Colors: *Robo-Shark
Fire Animation by: Zelda Vinciguerra

A true Pyromaniac. Excuse the pun. He definitely has a deranged expression.

WOW! This guy's body is so incredibly fluid. You can feel the evil in him just by how... unstable he is with each movement. I love how his head just sort of bobs about. The fire animation is absolutely stunning, and this is overall very well done.

wonderful slow ins and slow outs
the body movement you got down beautifully and its great seeing someone animating in such a naturalistic style!
the only real problem i see other than minor consistency issues with his clothes- is that fucking head
its sort of bobbing around like a pigeon
i have no idea what is going on with his head there
also his expression doesnt change at all which makes it just look fake rather than insane which i see is what you were going for
maybe have his mouth open and his eyes light up when his scythe sets on fire or some thing- just little things like that would make him look buckets more realistic

Hi there! Thanks for the nice comment and for the critique! This is an older piece (a good year-to-two-years) and is already in the project (you can view it the piece HERE),so it's a little too late to fix although I really appreciate that you took the time to let me know what you thought!

As far as the head bob goes, I agree with you and everyone who has mentioned it that I over-animated, which is something I've been working on since. I do think the choice has some merit in-context, though, as each bob hits on a laugh he does, and the director of the piece was on board for it at the time since it really brought out that craziness in the character. Again, over-animated, yes. If I could do it again I would make it more subtle! :3 So thanks!

As far as the expression, I agree I could have maybe played with that a bit more! Acting is something I did, and still do, struggle with. So good eye. Thank you!

thanks for the link!
looks like a good deal of that laugh was cut out in the trailer after all that haha
is that a project you ever finished/plan to finish? or is it forever stuck in trailer form

Well, it's not my project, it's ~neo-dragon's, and she is hoping to get it picked up at point to make into a full series :) the trailer is for her pitch.
