T-Dome thread here
For the sidekick theme I plan to animate two characters which I've created just recently: Action heroine Sergeant Tangle and her sidekick Shotgun Chimp.
Shotgun Chimp loves to drive his Chimp Tank...
Fire his pump-action shotgun...
Or battle hand to hand Monkey Style
Stay tune as I attempt to animate Shotgun Chimp and his sharpshooting partner Sergeant Tangle!

Take it to the n00bz! lolololzz
Hot damn these are nice. Especially shotgun monkey. (Though in the action shot of him he looks a like the Pirate Baby from that movie runnin' around.)
Only thing I could critique here is Sgt. Tangle. Her concept is fantastic, but the design feels incomplete. Long story short, push some balance in one direction or another...I'd recommend makin' the boots taller...calf huggers with big treads, real army boots, and some gloves so all your darker values aren't focused simply on the body. Thems limbs need love too, even if they aren't as sexy as canteen-boobs.
Nice concept, I look forward to seeing your storyboard and animation tests.
You'll probably find most of the inconsistencies in a character will get worked out when you sit down and try to animate them.
Try breaking them down into simple shapes, emphasis on simple, it's what allows you to make sure proportions stay in check and make the production itself faster and easier.
Once you've done that and a character sheet i'd like to know how you plan on animating it, if you don't have that much experience with polished animations i'd be happy to help you out on picking and developing a your technique.

TEHEHEEE relentless monkey idea
look I dont know why I love you I just do
Thanks for the suggestions Snuggles and sciboy. I think I'll add the glove idea of yours Snuggles. Egets: eek eek eek
Here's my storyboard. (More like a sequence board 'cuz there's really not much of a story.) Basically here, Tangle and Shotgun are target practicing. Shotgun fires the coconut "target" and Tangle turns to quickly track and blast the coconut.
So, like skeet shooting, but with less monkey than usual?
A woman with canteens covering her breasts... and a shothgun wielding chimp~ I should just shot myself now, no way I can stand against you...
Seriously... nice concept very cute with edge, in short its appealing.And goddamn it do you have to do storyboards the right way? I mean its just not fair... its like your taking animation seriously!(giggles I could produce some rough motion from your boards without even having to call you and ask WTF am I supposed to be doing at point X)
I think the sequence idea is a good one, but you may want to flesh out your boards a bit to make them less static. A bit of camera movement might do the trick. For example, would you want to focus more on chimp and the tree in the beginning? Or perhaps at the end when Tangle turns to fire, the camera could zoom out and pan to the side real fast (opposite the way the coconut is moving) just to make her turning and firing more dynamic? Just some thoughts.
What are you going to be using to animate this?
Thanks for stopping by grudge. Can't wait to see myself your clown and baloon sidekick in motion!
Uhm...yeeeaahhh...somethin' like thatwith less monkey than usual?
Wertle, thanks for the suggestions. Time permitting I might be able to include some or all your suggestions.
My drawing hand.What are you going to be using to animate this?
Righty-O, best of luck then. =)
