i loved it.. best one i've seen today
(only thing is that it was a bit odd when the music just cutted off when he got his wings and catches her.. i though my speakers died for second lol.. but yeah.. maybe try to fade out instead of a sudden stop.. and maybe give it another song instead of having silence.. because silence is rarely good)
Graphics - 8 : drawings are great~ might be a little rough here and there but its still good (like another guy said.. go for higher frame rate because things aren't moving as smooth as they should)
Style - 10 : good hand drawn stuff, i would believe it took you quite a while
Sounf - 7 : good choice of music, wasn't distracting and went well with the movie.. but againg.. i droppd a point on this because of aforementioned cut off thing
violence/interactivity/humor : wasn't intended.. therefore doesn't count
doesn't really do the job
In the flash you say you wanted to try and cool things down and get people to stop posting worthless shit about IWP. But showing Foamy wanting to take over NG (although he only dreams about it) and then gets a rock to the head from the people of NG as punishment does not work towards that purpose. It feels more like another flash against the guy, unless I'm completely missing this "implicit message" (which is likely.. since its 3 in the morning)
graphics - 6 : pretty good, would have been higher except foamy wasn't you original character
style - 4 : not bad, but again nothing original (would have been higer since your style is similar to mine.. with the detached hands and using Century Gothic. But the hands positions were a little wonky.. and you screwed up by switching to Arial in the "[???] (Unknown Artist)" line. might have bothered me less if you had switched to Helvetica instead of Arial.. but still, consistency is good.. stick to Century Gothic if you're gonna use that.)
sound -10 : you used beethovan virus my favourite song from DDR.. automatic 10
violence - 3 : rock to the head isn't all that violent anymore in the world of flash
interactivity - 0 : wasn't meant to be interactive so this doesn't count
humor - 3 : a minor giggle with the rock but nothing special
averages to 5 on the overall but dropping to 4 because again i don't see how this achieves your stated purpose.. (i'll vote it high if you manage to explain to me how it does though)
There were neither Century Gothic nor Helvetica fonts. I used Arial and another font whose name I don't remember. Graphic designer.. so that explains it. I happen to be in Multimedia right now, I know there are rules about fonts, but I surely wasn't expecting this kind of comment from a NG user.
I'm against excessive use of violence in Flash movies. So yeah. No explosions or mutilations.
This is experimental Flash. It's what I do on this alt. I learn from my mistakes, so I must thank you for your honest review.
nice clay work
i've done some claymation once.. it wasn't easy
the whole thing wasn't too exciting but considering the restrictions you had i doubt i could have thought of something better. The morphing of the clay was smooth and it went well with the music.. so overall good job.
make it smoother
your drawing is good.. but the animation is stiff (ie. ship going in straight line, etc).. trying to make it a little more fluid.
I hope you already have some music in mind because that's a big thing, it is much more powerful if the visuals are syncronized with the music (ie. music picks up when the action gets fast). But since most flash animators don't make their own music.. its a good idea to find a song that suits what you're doing.. and build your animation based on how the music goes
P.S. for the rest of you.. he did say its only what he's done "so far". He's not done yet and he just wants feed back on how it looks. read before you start complaining about length and lack of story
your illustration is great. although the thin red lines on plain white was well... kinda plain. But since its hand drawn I'll let you get away with it. I understand that you probably wanted to retain the illustrated feel of it and didn't add coloring or background.. what I'd suggest is cropping off some of the white space.. for example a large chunk above and below the whole thing was never used.. the thing might look a little less like its floating in the middle of nowhere if the crop is a little tighter.
and consider adding a bit of music.. nothing dramatic because that would take away from your clean style, something soft, or maybe humorous could add to this animation though.
i like it
good animation, decent music.. smooth and flowed well throughout. drawing can still be improved but overall best i've seen today
ok wtf. my headphones were on 5% volume inside my ears and that sudden blast at the end was heard by my friend on the other side of the room.
what's the purpose of this animation? Random garbage followed by sudden, high pitched, loud modem sound at max volume.. you could damage people's eardrums, thats not cool. moron.
