    Hey Blendermaniacs! It’s time for a new theme and new contest! The theme this time is….Animation! This one is long overdue! Time to get your animation skills out.

    The contest is simple, MAKE A CHARACTER & CREATE AN ANIMATION WITH THEM


    HAS TO BE A NEW CHARACTER THAT YOU MAKE. MUST BE MADE & ANIMATED IN BLENDER, NO EXTERNAL ADDONS OR PROGRAMS


    To upload your animation, first upload it to youtube or vimeo and then paste the URL as a reply to THIS forum post


    Here are a couple ideas to get you started:

    • Is your character simple like a cube or complex?
    • Is your character an animal type character?
    • Is your character human in form or a object type character (such as a ball with eyes and a mouth)
    • Does your animation tell a story? Is it funny, scary or sad?
    • Is there just one character in your animation or several?
    • Does your animation have a whole scene to it or is it just a white backdrop?

    Guidelines for the contest:

    • 90% has to be done in Blender
    • MUST BE 30 seconds to 2 minutes long
    • Submission has to be submitted by 9/30/20 Midnight PST
    • Only ONE submission per person
    • Work has to be original and not copied from another artist
    • Has to be a new project and not a render you did a long time ago

    Prizes for Contest Winners:

    • 1st place will receive a choice of one of my courses, $25 Amazon E-gift card (or $ paypald to them), be featured in the featured image section, 500 points and a certificate!
    • 2nd place will receive a choice of one of my 4 courses, 300 points and certificate
    • 3rd place will receive, 100 points and a certificate

      Thank you. Yes I have done animations and modeling following tutorials step by step. But this is the first time I try to do it by myself. And I am very happy I could accomplish this little animation. And I will keep learning… I love learning this!

      This is a really neat video, I love all the physics and moving of perspective! But I have to ask the question that’s got my head scratching… where’s the “character” in this video…?

      That’s real nice yeets but I agree with Drift, this isn’t a valid entry because there’s no character in it.

      to quote Mr.Cardboard over there “The contest is simple, MAKE A CHARACTER & CREATE AN ANIMATION WITH THEM

      HAS TO BE A NEW CHARACTER THAT YOU MAKE. “

          For your own sanity I recommend you assume everything I say is a joke unless otherwise stated 😛

            OK. then what you just said is a joke, so its not true. so everything you say is not a joke. bit then that would be true….. *paradox intensifies*

          Back then I misread it as ‘Cordebeard’ at first, like ‘Blackbeard’… lol

      But because I want to see how easy it is to break this system and in what ways we can improve it, maybe add some eyes and a smile on that apparatus that separates the spheres, and call it a character. 😛
      We were discussing with Alex that the animation contests will be hard to make fair for all because someone could just do what I suggest on the sentence above. 😛

    My character is the Default Cube. Now if only people knew how much it takes to make that cube.. maybe they won’t delete it 😛

      And I believe a character doesn’t always have eyes and a mouth…

    Now i wonder if GIFs would have been accepted.. probably not since their length would technically be infinity. : P
