Alrighty, this has been brewing in the artistic minds of a few AGers lately - an animation contest!
Similar to the Art Skills Competition we need a few rules in place (largely copy/pasted, so credits to Carlie for parts of this):
1. Must be hand drawn, either on paper or in a program (Pivot is allowed). It can then be manipulated in an graphics program (GIMP is a nice free one with a build in animation filter - google it). Copyrighted images cannot be used. All pieces containing copyrighted images will be disqualified.
2. Submissions must follow the current theme. If you submit more than one piece, please clarify which one you would like to be judged.
3. If your animation is larger than 630 pixels wide, please provide a link to the animation instead of posting it in the forum. Otherwise, the animation will be cut off.
4. Artists cannot win in subsequent weeks. You can still submit, but if you won the week before, you cannot get first place again the next week. Unless only one person submits......let's hope that doesn't happen!

First Theme will be: Balloon Darts

Just show someone/thing popping a balloon with a dart in any possible way.

I'll judge (unless someone else would like to), and no offense but I don't want a noob judging.

Deadline: November 12th

Good luck kiddos!

I don't like this theme because
a) Good sprites and figures could be more important that the actual animating.
b) It's boooooring

Still, I made a quick animation. Seeing as how the deadline is two weeks from now it's possible that I make something else later, but don't count on it. Balloon popping isn't really something that's fun to make.

Try to ignore the fact that the monkey looks like pure evil, the colors got messed up.

Let's give this a shot. Please critique considering this is my first animation using pivot. (I actually didn't use pivot, I used 'stykz').

Oh and I am fully aware that this being the first time .gif post, it may not actually appear. Expecting a BBcode fail.
