Skeleton Fight by Mirz123 Skeleton Fight by Mirz123
My Week 4 (final) entry for VP NaNoEmo 2015   :iconnanoemo:

I think this scene is iconic enough that if you haven't seen the movie, you still know the scene. It's been parodied countless times, and you see it included in many "best scene" collections. Anyhow, this movie, and this scene, was actually important in a recent story I wrote, so I decided I would cap off my VP-NaNo for 2015 with an emote version

The angles are the thing that did me in here. I tried to be as true to the original reference still as possible, and it was tricky as heck. But, as with all of my emote "reproductions," I do take liberties simply because you can't translate everything in emote form, as well as some personal artistic changes. I do love how the skeletons turned out. And the shields are pretty cool.

I remember the old stop motion animation films! They're what first interested me in animations. Clay-mation was my favorite, but this film in particular is one of my old time favorites along with the 7th Voyage of Sinbad! :cyclops:
Wonderful scene! :clap:

Oh my gash, I literally squeed when I saw this in my watch box :D This is one of my favorite movie scenes, and I have soft spot for skeleton warriors anyway (I'm a weirdo XD ) The lil skeletons are so cute, and Jason looks great! You really caught the movie scene, and I think you did an excellent job!
