I was just watching the last Samuri Lapin cartoon, and I was wondering...

1) Where on earth did you get the sound effect of the swords? It sounds like you were clanging knives together or something, but then I tried it and it didn't sound right.

2) Why does Samuri Lapin put on the enemies banner as a kilt-type thing? I mean, it's not like he needs clothes... I think. Looks good though smile.gif

3) Is that a poster of mittens and snowdrop I espy on the wall of his master's bedroom, or am I just losing my eyesight? (I noticed it on the others as well)

Also, have you ever thought about mixing characters in one cartoon? Eg Mr Snaffleburger being forced to market those evil bunnies which keep trying to attack SL's master. Just a thought though, I don't expect you to act on it biggrin.gif

well, I'm not mata, but I might be able to clear up #2 (might). haven't you ever seen a samurai movie or anime? I suppose rurouni kenshin would be the most well-known. Yes? No? Well, red skirt-pant things were very common fighting garb (the term escapes me, sorry). so no, it's not a kilt. ^^ They were especially common among shinto warriors, a la kikyo in inu-yasha. so the red thing (although they could be one of many colours, red was most common) is rather like a spoof of those. did I get that right?

if you look, mittens and snowdrop make a cameo in the havest animation wink.gif

and i know mata is loathed to use specific idea bought up on the forums....causes copyright issues i think

Yes, mittens and snowdrop are on the wall in poster form.

1) The soundeffect was knives if I remember correctly, I then pitch shifted them with some sound software and speeded it up a little. It was actually really difficult to make a sound that fitted, I'm not sure if I got it right in the end but I couldn't find anything better!

2) See a.u's answer, that's spot on, although I'd probably use the term 'homage' rather than 'spoof' smile.gif

3) As others have said, the poster on the wall is indeed Mittens and Snowdrop.

3.5) The styles of animation for the different characters are so different that I doubt any attempt to combine them would look right. Mittens' world is very much 2D, LGG's is 3D, Mr Snaffleburger's is... just odd. I've thought about it but it would be hard to make it all fit, although occasional cameo appearences aren't out of the question (such as SPS pointed out in the Harvest animation).

The master and mistress... Oh right, as in the people being protected? Yes, they have healthy, fun-filled lives like all good children should have, although they are slightly traumatised by the mutilated bunnies that they find scattered around their houses every morning.

Well, I hope that answers your question.

It's pretty unlikely that I'll flesh out their lives in the animations, I've got enough to be getting on with making the story arc just for the characters I already have!

I just thought that you would have had thoughts for the sleeping ones, as you created them.

I have some issues about my martial arts training, and whether to continue with the whole thing.

The Tao of Samuri Lapin has helped.

It inspires.

Thank you.

I'll take the ones on the left.....

Martial arts training is always useful. It often teaches you to have the confidence that stops anyone from trying to hit you in the first place. Of course, not everyone suits all forms, for example I don't get on very well with kickboxing but I love Wing Chun. If you can stick with it I would recommend doing so, but it's your choice at the end of the day!

That's what I think it's about, too.

Self-control and indomitable spirit.

I'm having a bit of a crisis about kicking people in the head.

I suspect that some people enjoy that way too much.

No finesse.

If that's the purpose, I'd rather stick to weight-training.

(Challenge yourself, not other people?)

I'll see how I go tomorrow, as I'm doing both.

Lapin helps.

Honestly.

He reminds me why I started in the first place.

Sorry, now I've used 'in the first place', too......

There are always people like that in every martial arts class. If there are more of them than people interested in developing their own self-control then maybe try finding another class?

Just to say, tonight's class was all about technique, power, balance, action and reaction.

Perhaps you somehow sent me some positive vibes?

If I can just now learn to be without form.....

This has been bothering me for a very long time (I blame the ocd I do), but the "red thing" I was trying to explain earlier is called a hakama. There. Ha! I remembered.

martial arts classes are a laugh when you're double jointed. I do a form of tkd called chun do kwan, but hoppkido (which consists mostly of twisting the opponant's joints the wrong way) often doesn't have any effect on me. (You mean my arms isn't supposed to turn around three, four times before it stops?)

That made me laugh - thank youl

It's a fact of life that some people are just physically better suited to certain activities than others.

I tend to cackle hysterically when some flash twit tries to move someone clever and solid.

"I was trying to throw you."

"Oh, were you?"

Errmm, I don't usually go with the 'fell over' stuff, but, I think, in this instance, that you've got it nailed.

I came in from erecting a new fence, yesterday, to watch "The World's Strongest Woman."

Apparently, the key to being 'The World's Strongest Woman' is to be a man.... with bunches.

What was even odder was that he didn't win.

In my day the worlds strongest women were East German, and so pumped full of testosterone (artificially) that they ended up becoming men spontaneously.

Apparently it was. I still remember the documentaries about it. It just goes to show what national oneupmanship can do to people.

Ooh, and artist, there isn't such thing as double jointedness. It has to do with either ligaments or tendons being longer than normal, or something. I'll find the article or something and tell you for sure later. tongue.gif

Good point, I know. ^^ I just use it as a sloppy expression, more or less. Obviously there's only one joint in there, I'd be even less coordinated if there were two. heh. It prolly does have to do with tendons or ligaments...the only part of me that isn't bendy like that is where I slashed through them and couldn't get 'em fixed cos they were over a joint. It worries my tkd instructors when my arm keeps twisting and twisting or bends the wrong way...think they'll break me or something.

'Course, with steriods, the same works the other way. Man-boobs and all that--seems pretty worrying to me.
