I like that idea. Model a character then do a lip sync/blenshape or walkcycle. And if that character was a real person you can use that audio of that person to lip sync.

Ouch.

These are the times .. in which you think of reverting back to your "tutorial-making-helping-adl" instead of the "I-don't-care-adl" :p

Thanks for the kind words though. Lol. :p

I am one of them...my character modelling abilities are poor

EDIT: doing an animation would be indeed a new challenge...

I agree with the challenge point; mostly in the challenges I make things and learn things I have not tried before.

Another character idea would be to take a sound clip and make a character that says it or does something in time to a piece of music. Everyone gets the same clip or piece of music but has free range on a character. That then helps people who think making a whole person in a month might be a bit tough as one could create something more simple as long as it delivered it's message.

I still like my "model your 'mental picture' of another SimplyMayan member".

But I also like the idea of these animations and other concepts.

I say... Have someone provide a model... And we have to compete to animate it. Then we present a movie....

I really like all the ideas in here, especially the animation ones but how would you seperate the "normal" from the "newbie" sections. Would it be longer and more complicated in normal or just more complex movements?......Just asking as I've never animated a thing. Can't back out of a challenge though.

Well, we've talked about animation challenges before, but they never seemed to be able to get off the ground. Perhaps we can do one for October!
