Take two run cycles of jousters, throw in a few backgrounds, mix in a feverish yet highly productive session with Sound Miner, mix 'em all together, and what do you get? This, apparently.
I know, I'm just as surprised as you are.

The Black Knight and his steed Rhubarb are in the works. I don't really feel like showing him 'till he's done though, so you'll just have to see him later.

But the video won't go up on the blog here, and after three failed attempts, followed by exporting the movie again and another three attempts, I've decided that it's not worth it.
For now, just hang on to the knowledge that the castles are in there, and I promise you'll see them later when the blog is being less persnickety.

Yeah, it's just some run cycles, but that's a giant part of my animation as a whole. All I need now is a few backgrounds and maybe a rider here or there and presto!

This one however went much better. It's a festively plump horse. I prefer rotoscoping when it's used more for reference than for tracing.
And now, as proof that real reference was used:

And this is the Black Knight, named for his dark armor. He hails from the kingdom of the grumpy face. He's only slightly more competent than the Pie Knight when it comes to defending his homeland, but he's much, much more violent.

Ambient field sounds. Heroic trumpeting call to arms. Sounds of drawbridges lowering. Hoof beats.
A lovely pastoral view of an open field flanked by two castles. Zoom in on the leftmost castle, see the door open and the Pie Knight (PK) exit the castle on his horse, heading for the field. Fast pan to a close up of the rightmost castle, which the Black Knight (BK) leaves also on his horse, also heading towards the field.
Hoof beats. Slightly comical charging music (PK theme).
The PK on his horse, lance at the ready.
Hoof beats. Intense, foreboding charging music (BK theme).
The BK on his horse, lance also at the ready.
PK on his horse.
|BK theme||BK on his horse.|
|PK theme||PK slipping off horse.|
|BK theme||Closer shot of BK on his horse.|
|PK theme||PK slips even more off his horse.|
|BK theme||Even closer shot of BK on his horse.|
|PK theme petering out. Thud sound effect.||PK falls of his horse, lays expressionless on the ground, still holding his lance.|
|BK theme||close up shot of BK on his horse|
|BK theme. "Shiiiing!" sound effect.||the two horses cross paths, BK's lance pierces nothing but empty air. The PK is not in this shot, as he has already fallen of his horse.|
|music stops. hoof beats. stabbing sound effect and "urk!" noise||Close up of BK looking confused. Suddenly, he seizes up.|
|ambient field sounds. gurgling.||PK is still lying on the ground, and BK has just impaled himself on PK's lance.|

And while I'm on the subject...
You know what's awesome? Fantasia, that's what's awesome:
I rest my case.

A priest walks into a bar and says: "I believe Jesus is my Lord and savior and I would like some communion wine." The bartender, being a man for conversation, says "Okay", and gives the priest the wine, and the priest leaves. Shortly thereafter, a Rabbi walks into the bar and says: "I believe the messiah has yet to come, and I would like some Manischewitz wine." The bartender gives the Rabbi his wine and the the Rabbi leaves. Shortly thereafter a whale enters the bar and says: "AAAAAaaawoooooooooOOOOOOooooooooooo."
Yes, that's the whole joke, and it's really the best warning I can give you about where things are heading.
