Final Project: Pussy Grabbing Fatality Gif

Shouts out to our 49th Pussy Grabbing President Donald Trump. It was because of this debacle that influenced this project. Mortal Kombat is a beloved fighting game, which stands with the test of time. 2016, was a year of many fatalities. Hilary Clinton took a bigger “L” than Meek Mill. In this parody version of Mortal Kombat, I tried to foreshow that L.

How did I do this? https://www.spriters-resource.com/ has all of the assets that I used for this project. It’s a site dedicated extracted assets from various video games, throughout various consoles. The Sprites include, levels, character move sets, battle screens, etc. I extracted my assets from Mortal Kombat III.

I used the spritesof Liu Kang, and Sonya Blade. Why? I like those two characters.

In order to create an animation, I copied and pasted each individual Sprite to separate Layers: screen-shot-2016-12-18-at-10-19-21-pm

After, I made a timeline. The timeline helped me create each photo within the individual layers into a gif.

 

 

After creating the gifs, I put them into after effects, along with my other assets. A Donald Trump head, and Hilary Clinton head(s). I procured the Subway level from Mortal Kombat. Also, I downloaded the Mortal Kombat font in order to label my characters. (Mortal Kombat Font)

I created a null object to mask the heads onto the Character’s bodies. screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-2-21-49-am

In Mortal Kombat, the finishing maneuvers are called fatalities. A fatality in Mortal Kombat World, is inflicting a devastating move execution style. In the Fatality for Donald Trump, I decided to turn his opponents into a giant pussy…..cat.

Because many of the gifs I made had a green screen, Key Light 1.2 will be your best friend.

I did encounter a few dilemmas, using multiple trackers for my characters. In order to work around it, I changed the position by each frame. It can be tedious at times, but I think it’s even more accurate than the motion tracking. screen-shot-2016-12-19-at-2-42-55-am

 

I hope you enjoy my gif, because I had fun making it. 🙂

Final Project Update

My final project is going along well. I decided to change my project to Hilary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Mortal Kombat gif. Basically, I’m beginning with the Battle Screen from Mortal Kombat 3. Here’s what I’ve done so far:

I procured the battle screen assets from the website: spriters-resoucre.com/ After that, I made the assets HD quality on photoshop!

I began working on the battle screen on after effects

Every asset was cropped from the battle screen you see from above.

Afterwards, I’m using a scene from the movie, Mortal Kombat to mask the faces of Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton, to the body of Liu Kang and Sub Zero.

Grading Progress

Currently, I am barely passing in this class. This is due to my lack of commenting on others’ works, and also lack of going in depth to discussing my process in my work. Also, I have missed some quizzes and posts. I do have time to improve my grade by completing missing quizzes, posts, and actually writing my work process within my work posts.

Final Project OUTTA NOWHERE!

One of 2015’s most popular memes involved WWE Superstar Randy Orton performing his devastating finishing maneuver, the RKO onto unsuspecting civilians, animals, etc.

My final project proposal is to recreate the “RKO” meme, by using after effects. To go one step further, I plan on adding effects to the meme, such as fireworks, and hell…. why not add Confused Travolta to the mix?

It can be called the Adventures of Travolta and Orton.
