This is a very promising character you've created. I like the premise and most of all, I like the execution. The jokes are average on paper, but the way they're animated and, especially, voiced, make this a very entertaining flash.
A good example would be the second skit. After Hal says "I think I do", the scene cuts to a scenario so absurd you just have to laugh. Not to mention Hal's expressions, which are always goofy in the best way.
Technically, it's flawless. The art style fits it very well and the animation is detailed and smooth. The lyp synch is very well-done, and the voice acting is amazing. Egoraptor always fails to disappoint in anything he's in, but you and your family also do a great job... er... well, they're very convincing as... mmm. Porn stars.
Right, you know what I mean.
Anyway, this is a good character and this concept should be taken to new heights. A sequel, eventually, would be very welcome.
Not only it's plagued by technical issues (bad drawings, practically non-existent animation, scene badly fitted into canvas), but the idea itself is poorly explored and pointless. But don't let this stop you. Keep trying to improve, maybe write a script for your next animation so you can further develop your ideas and create a rich piece of work. This one, sadly, is very bad.
Thanks for the advice man ill keep that in mind;)
Impressive work. This is stopmotion on professional level. I know how much patience one needs to animate using this style, so I was even more impressed by how smooth and fluid the animation is. Random, but so what? Entertaining and the music is decent.
Congratulations on a great job. Merry Christmas and I wish 2009 is as productive to you as 2008 apparently was.
Like every flash animation made by you, Adam: impeccable.
It's a decent effort. I like some of the style and how the animation synchs with the music - which is quite weak, in my opinion. But the animation is inconsistent, with some good ones (the tree) and some bad ones (the squirrel). The whole thing is also a bit boring and doesn't have a particularly interesting message. But it's a decent effort.
Before I say anything on the animation itself...
... try not complaining about your previous animation's score inside your NEW animation. If you think the people who reviewed your work negatively because of your all-caps writing are morons, don't bother responding to them because it makes you sound like an even bigger moron. And making said writing flicker continuously between white and red only makes it all worse.
Now, about the animation itself. Sprite movies are nothing new, but it's been proved they can be quite good if done correctly. Unfortunately, your work lacks the creativity of a series like SF vs. MK, in which the two fighters come up with intelligent strategies to defeat each other, using every ability they have available. In your animation, they just hit each other without a lot of charm or appeal. Also, the moment where they have a blue fireball between them is overlong and cliche.
The sprites are decent enough, but your animation isn't. I could clearly spot some ugly gaps like Chun Li being thrown in the air and falling on a spot too far from where she should have landed. In short, it lacks intensity and smoothness.
But it's mildly entertaining. Just work on the animation, coreography and stop bitching in the loading screen.
GOOD FOR YOU...IM NOT EVEN COMPARING MY STUFF TO SF VS. MK...I DONT HAVE THE NECESSSARY SOFTWARE FOR THAT...IF I DO PROBABLY I CAN DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT...AND SINCE IM USING AN OLD FLASH PROGRAM AND A CRACKED VERSION...IT HANGS ALOT...IT TAKES 3 SECONDS JUST TO PUT MY SYMBOL IN...ITS NOT MY COMPUTER TRUST ME...AND YEAH SINCE YOU SEE THE CHOPPINESS OF IT...PROBABLY ITS YOUR INTERNET WHICH IS CRAPPY...AND YEAH I CAN BITCH ANYTIME I WANT TOO...WELL I LIVE IN AMERICA SO I CAN BITCH ANYTIME I WANT TOO! LIKE GAY PEOPLE GETTING MARRIED...
The smooth animation is secondary to your creativity in the way you use the Flash program and the desktop icons to make the fight more interesting. It's just brilliant, imaginative work. Congratulations.
Sorry, but Mario hitting a block, enemies falling from the sky and Mario defeating three of them is a terrible story. On top of that, the animation and framerate are poor and overall it's just sloppy.
You must be oblivious to my comments! I said it was a preview, so what do you expect? I'm still working on it though. So it'll be better next time.
PS- Nice run-on sentence!
I'm impressed, to say the least. This is a powerful little story with beautiful dialogue that fits the young characters perfectly. It's also a wonderful tribute. It's great to see such a sensitive, touching piece of art like this in Newgrounds.
I wish all the best to China and the people who were affected by the earthquake and not just by it, but also by China's several social problems.
No animation, sloppy art and badly-timed. This slideshow takes too long to switch from a drawing to another, and it's not worth the wait because they need a lot of improvement.
