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