anyway, in my stand against the actionscript geniuses, I decided to do an animated footer (as opposed to an interactive one). My drawings nearly suck as much as my actionscript knowledge, so it was a close call lol! but since everyone is always trying to make their footers interesting and fun I decided to make mine really boring! w00t!
btw, that text that appears just says ‘Tetsuo!’ in some random japanese text font (it doesn’t actually say it in japanese… just so you know ;)) Comments and whatnot: lemme know what you think!
hhmmm cowboy…not sure where you are at but in the U.S the word “Jap” is kinda like a racial slur…I like you r footer tho…just wanted to let you know about your verbage…dont think you meant it that way…just an FYI
3d: edited sorry if anyone took offence, was just easier to type
teed: yes, tetsuo as in akira (of course - amazing film after all) - I was going for the bit towards the end where kaneda is after tetsuo, and he has a tendancy to shout his name just before he shoots him. which is cool… and since I had just done some line art drawings of kaneda, I thought I’d put them to some use
whaddya reckon I should have in the orange bit then? (this is my first attempt at a footer, so suggestions are appreciated ;))
But, that text actually reads (sorta): gyagadopapu.
This is what “Tetsuo” looks like in katakana (albeit, written using a mouse, and with extremely poor penmanship). Although I should think that his name has some sort of meaning in Japanese, so it is probably written in Kanji in the movie.
