I like the idea of the redesigned thread, though I'd suggest having a rule like in one of the old threads that you should wait until a frame has two responses before posting another image. Almost nobody is providing any kind of a response.
@Funmiproductions The framing is a little off and you could do with making your sets a bit more detailed in future, but I'm still intrigued to see where you go with the next Hollow Earth.
@Aquamorph that's beautiful. Very nicely framed, and the colours make the doorway stand out without being glaringly so. It's there, and it could be part of that environment, but it's still somehow otherwordly. The only thing that's a little odd is what looks like artifacting on the door frame, a sort of posterised effect, but that might be intentional, I don't know.
@Brickcrazy I saw this the other day. I know this thread's for individual frames, but the way you animated that overhead, Glados-style robot was awesome. Is that a Brickstuff/Lifelites LED inside?
@William Osborne the set is nice - I always like it when people make bookshelves that way - though the decal on the central minifigure is a little bit off. It looks like the decal might be too big for the torso. The design is good, although the buttons are more like ovals than circles. Personally I've always found white minifigure decals to be annoying, since paper is, well, white, while white Lego pieces tend to turn yellowish over time. I have no idea how to solve this issue though, and it's something that annoyed me when animating Moon Knight for my MBU Christmas special. Still, aside from the size I think you did a pretty good job.
@bigbubba I'm guessing this is Squidman Origins episode two? I really enjoyed the first part, and this frame definitely has me pumped for the second. How did you have the studs hang in mid-air? Is it masked?
@Aiwha Nice framing and use of colour. Went and watched the brickfilm too. Very cool. I also like the choice of face you used for the thief, it's very smug and confident.
@HOO I think the last frame would definitely benefit from masking. Clear bricks can work, but generally only if they're less visible, whereas this still stands out. And interesting use of Modulex bricks! I don't remember seeing them in a brickfilm before.
It may not seem like much, but even if you're posting an image, it might be a little prudent to start your post with a comment about the image before yours. Just a few words; not a critique, that's not what this thread is for, but just a little appreciation to make the recipient feel warm and fuzzy (or not) about their work. I'm sure we'd all want a comment in return, and for me at least I'd post here because I want to share something I'm proud of. I don't want to sound condescending, but this struck me as soon as I saw the new thread. Still, I like the idea of the images being shared around on social media. BiM is quite enclosed a lot of the time; this is a great way to raise awareness for the community here.
