I'm falling asleep, so super short notice emergency action must be taken!
I'm going to animate and colour a scene for the mech film I'm working on live at en-gb.twitch.tv/otaking77077
In half an hour!
3:30pm UK time, 10:30am America time.
Drop by and keep me awake, nerd-samas.
Here is a super exciting message.
I'm going to animate and colour a scene for the mech film I'm working on live at en-gb.twitch.tv/otaking77077
But at what time, you ask?
Like, 2 hours from now!
9pm UK time, 4pm America time.
If I get more than ten whole viewers, I'll perform a charming dance. Not that you'll be able to see it.
Soothing retro game music and commentary via my voice will be provided, but you must bring your own snacks and questions, such as "why are your human movements so weird-looking?" and "Have you ever thought about maybe studying anatomy?" and "don't you think it's time you quit?"
Anyone interested in hearing my irritatingly nasally voice?
Here's a podcast interview about the animation process, charity, Zak's guitars and various stuff.


Also, please donate to Cancer Research and Cats protection if you have a few spare quid or bucks laying around!
TIE Fighter poster by MightyOtaking
TIE Fighter poster

So, here's the poster for my animated TIE Fighter short film.
The film is here, by the way: www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN_CP4…

I always loved those really classy oil/acrylic-painted movie posters by folks like Drew Struzan, with all kinds of stuff going on in the background for you to spend ages dissecting with your eyes. You know the ones. So I wanted to try something like that, except in the cel-shaded style of the short film.

The results are nowhere near the original Star Wars movie poster level of quality or composition, but I guess it does the job.

EDIT - Some folks are asking for prints of this poster, so I upped the size. You can just download the fullsize image, print it yourselves and save a bit of cash.
Also, additional stuff -

Going to assume you've got more comments than you can keep up with, but thought this might amuse. I've set out to make myself some pilot cards for the X-Wing Miniatures game of your characters. A touch of fanwork for your fanwork, so to speak.

Started with Ada of course. Tie1 by Durendal5150

Hard time deciding what abilities and such to give though. (Considered some sort of affinity for cluster missiles with Ada for awhile...) Do tell if you've got ideas. Hope you enjoy.

I know you seems to be getting a lot of comments referring to this... but saw your Tie Fighter Star Wars animation short film and was awesone:

the ilustrations, animation, how it went with the music, but specially, the brilliant composition of the battle.

I first saw a small part of it in 9gag as a Gif, and needed to find the whole part...

Many thanks!!!

Please save /m/echa anime, I will be your fanboy bitch forever haha. Your last thing you posted on mega was looking nice, and once your human movements/anatomical knowledge gets a bit tighter you will be a gawd.

Someone sent me a link to check out some tie-fighter animated short.
I just now got around to watching it. As soon as I saw the pilot, I knew it was you who did it.
Great job man.

Just made a comment at your YOUtube post of the awesome animated Star Wars/TIE Fighter anime :).
If you EVER do a Rebel Alliance version, I may have a few Battleship Designs you may like, and I'd donate them to you :).
They were part of my Portfolio to ILM/JAK Films to try to get onto Episode II and I got to talk with Doug Chiang a couple of times and replied with a very cool letter. soo many years ago.

You can see the designs here: mavartworx.deviantart.com/gall…

A "Candy Bar and Coke" to you and man, ILM/Lucasfilm needs to give you a job :D. Loving your Gallery as well!
Congrats to you and much success!
