Testing a new technique for multi-limbs I dub "Integrated Limbs." Animation is Lumpy suturing a patient.

A hilarious RP with :iconsomedumbdeviant: yesterday about Trauma Center just somehow turned on the light on me :D So while I'm working on the OC HTF Olympics, I decided to start on a side project that features the Main HTF characters on a busy hospital day, Starring Lumpy as Doctor Stiles and Cuddles as unfortunate patient :)

You know? Credit for the story goes to :iconsomedumbdeviant:, really! She made the accidental RP very interesting as well as giving a lot of laughs :XD:

My animation style began to also become HEAVILY influenced by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic here, especially after learning a lot of tricks and tips from replaying and replaying again, some interesting parts on the animation. Because of MLP, I really push myself to make future animations smoother than ever before :D

The aforementioned technique: Integrated Limbs, applies to complex characters like Lumpy. Basically, his arm is one single graphic symbol that intergrates all the elements of his arm. While the main graphic symbol animates, the children (the inside of the graphic) animates at the same time, making it somewhat complex but much more smoother and rewarding :D

In this link [link] , is also a .FLA file for people who wish to see how I did this. Its in Macromedia-Flash 8 Format so I guess everybody with flash will be able to sneak a peek into it :D

Doing this while listening to Rosalia's Petals: [link]

Oh, and also [link] (Judgment Day)
Makes you want to operate on whatever epic thing in front of you :XD:

O_o Very nice and smooth, as usual =p, but its quite odd that the lines in the normal HTF characters are in fills while Lumpy's one is still in lines. Looks like he has a new patient, I guess the boss failed to see the result of Cuddle's operation :XD:

For Lumpy, I figured out that it would be a bit difficult to manipulate parts of his body when needed (like a new symbol or such?), so I decided to stick with lines for him to ease manipulation ^^; I'll start to go on fills though after all of his body parts are settled (he's a bit difficult to develop)

I decided to add a prologue to the operation, and that is operating on Handy's arms =P After that, then the story began on that fateful Cuddles operation :XD:
You know, I really have to credit you for initiating that (absurdly hilarious) accidental RP over there :D After all, without that this cannot came into form ^^;

:iconsaywhaplz: You cheated?!? :icondrhaxplz: HAAAAXXXXX!!! *throws monitor at you*
You also played TC? Which one? I played 4 of them, really wanted to play Trauma Team but didn't manage to do so ^^;
And what's your favourite GUILT?

I just played the first game, Under The Knife.
Aww I've tried to play without cheats, but I keep failing at certain chapter (and also I can't concentrate under the time-limit pressure) and then I was like, "arrgh, screw this :iconffplz:" and then CHEAT MODE: ON. Until the end of game:XD:

I know I suck ^^;

I almost cheated in every game I played (if there is cheat codes available)
Imma teh master of cheating!!! YEAH!!! :dummy: *dilempari monitor*

I think my fave is Deftera :meow:

(Hax means cheating or using mods by the way :iconteheplz:)

Hahahahaha! Oh well, you just don't manage to feel the adrenaline that comes from the time pressure then :D But I have to say, I'm tempted to cheat, especially on that bloody Kyriaki... I hate Kyriaki in Under the Knife ^^;

:iconsavatoplz:(Second Opinion Savato, the one on the Wii)
Savato is trolling you :icontrollfaceplz: I don't know that Saturdays can be so annoying :XD: (Savato is Saturday in Greek)
I don't know why, but Savato seems to be quite fun :D Except for X-7 Savato, I never managed to beat that little bastard :iconcryforeverplz:
As for what you say, Deftera right? The yin-yang kind of guilt? :icondefteraplz: Oh, this thing is a nightmare for many players (they rage quit to it, also to Triti), but somehow I feel that deftera is easy. The easiest for me? :icontetartiplz: Tetarti!

You can't beat X-7 Savato?? Have you try to cheat? :noes:
Yes, the yin-yang GUILT :la: I dunno, it's quite fun draining them when they collide :XD:
Tetarti is the easiest???? I don't think so, I often inject wrong colour ^^;

Anyway, about Kyriaki, I remember my first encounter with Kyriaki:XD: When I thought it's over (killed all the small ones) suddenly here comes the big one that created HUGE LACERATIONS :o HOLYY SHEEEEE-
I screamed. I really did. :rofl:

Tried cheating, with a win but no satisfaction from beating him ^^; I really wish to beat X-7 (the last of the extreme levels) fair and square :)

You screamed during that Kyriaki asterisk cut (Huge lacerations)? :rofl: I just jumped a bit with a face that is guaranteed to give laughter I guess during that time :XD:
I HATED kyriaki with all my life :( (at least the DS version, the Wii version is SOOOOOOOO much easier). That bloody GUILT is the hardest after Savato (sometimes even harder than savato IMO)

I saw your conversation with SDD, and really the RP was truly accidental but funny. :D
Anyway, Lumpy's really a complex character when it comes to the limb movement. :nod:
But... I can only say good job on this one. ^^

(I'm gonna look on your provided FLA, because who knows I'll use the same animating method on Blupi)

All because of an Epic Rickroll :D But really, full credit for her for the story idea :D
Yes he is complex, as you can see compared to All Work and No Belay, this is much more smoother and connected compared to the one in AWaNB.

By the way, have you inspected the FLA file provided :?

Hey. I saw the content of the file, and you know, I always used a combined method of graphic symbol and frame-by-frame animation. I'm not that fond as well when using layers, since I truly made it "frame-by-frame" in one layer. ^^;
I said this just for comparison. But I'm interested with the tweening on the parts. :)

:iconyudhaikeledai:
Yudhaikeledai Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
I see, so you're not the "chaotic number of layers" user? And exclusive frame to frame I presume with the help of graphics symbol? Very different method indeed :)
Trouble with your method is that It might take a bit long to animate as well the incapability of tweening which might make the job a little easier. My problem? You never know how many times I'm lost in a sea of layers, frantically looking forward and backwards for which layer is which, not to mention my method offer less precision and flexibility compared to yours so I have to compensate by developing new techniques ^^; . Trade Off? I say yes, a legitimate trade off :D
