Amazing. So much potential in this flash.
But... sorry Duch. I did have a couple issues with this flash.
First off, there were some anatomical issues. Sometimes the heads looked a bit too large, or you tried to fit body parts into the camera shot that just weren't meant to be there. Also, sometimes a hand would face the wrong way (the thumbs up), or their bodies just seemed to flat. There were also a couple perspective issues, but no really major ones.
However, there were lots of good points about this flash, that outweigh the problems. Your animation skills are amazing, and inspiring. Not so much your art skills, but your animation skills. Your sense of movement and camera shots is fantastic, I love the way you sped along the desert and through the tunnel.
Your camera shots and angles keep the film interesting, and I really like how you use them. Not a single boring camera shot in the whole film :D
And one thing that is so rare with flash nowadays, is marketing. You market your flash, so, fucking, well. Seriously.
Great music, AWESOME intro, simple yet effective credits and an easy to use menu.
Amazing Duchednier, not only have you pulled off a fantastic animation and series to boot, but you've left me wanting more. You ending hooked me, and I can't wait to see the next one in the series, which I'm sure won't disappoint :P
Love your work, brilliant flash, just work on some of the issues I've talked about. I can't wait to see your next addition to the series, you're a bloody inspiration.
Yeah, a lot of the reviews have been about anatomy, that's why i'm buying a book on poses and stuff and practicing drawing people in my sketchbook more and more :P I'll definetly make Chapter IV much more anatomically correct ^_^
Thanks for the great review!
ZOMG LOCHIE, DAILY 2ND!
Awesome job guys, well done Mexifry and Lochie!
Awesome flash, a some really funny steps. Bit dissapointed by the lack of ????, PROFIT! but meh. It was good nonetheless.
The animation style was cool, I really enjoyed the ol school movie style you had going. The border for it was a bit annoying, maybe add some lines on the sides, so you can easily tell its a border, and change the opacity or something...
The easter egg was pretty cool, and the way you presented the whole flash was good. Really funny steps Mexifry. And honest... :3
Anyway, not much to complain about, really funny flash you've produced!
Can't wait to see more!
Can't wait to get involved.
I'm so glad you made the thread Luis, I was hoping for one ever since you posted about it in the reg lounge...
Anyway, both of you, good job.
LaserKarls, well, obviously wasn't finished.
Good job, good anatomical sense, but it was more of a storyboard than an actual animation. But yeah, I realize that this is just an advert.
Luis, that was some of the most fluid animation I've ever fucking seen. Seriously man, Wow! The line width got a bit out of hand, but that may have just been the effect you wanted.
Anyway Luis, 10/10 for finally creating the thread! Yay!
Also, for the animations. (But mainly the thread).
I will join in, just not at the moment, Too much stuff on my plate.
Great movie, and very unique
Great parody of political mumbo jumbo here mate, well done!
I guess in this time of recession this could probably be seen as a metaphor of what's going on at the moment, and how the Rudd Government covers up it's tracks by talking nonsensical gibberish.
Anyway, I love your style.
First time I've actually seen watercolours in a flash!
It has a very... Monty Python style about it, which I liked.
Although it wasn't completely to my taste, I still enjoyed it, especially the really fresh style to it, that isn't seen in most flash nowadays.
Great job, unique style, keep it up.
Enjoyable, but lacking in... something.
Well, I like your style man. Simplistic, yet entertaining.
First off, congrats on first page. Well deserved.
Secondly, nice animation. It may a bit limited, but you've pulled off the jokes really well. When the Commisioner said "I'm gonna need a cup of coffee", it really got to me, I couldn't help but laugh. Very nice placement of jokes.
The voice acting was pretty good. Something about the Joker's voice annoyed me at times, but you spoke it true to character, and it had that kinda... joker trademark to it, so it was obvious who he was. Commisioner's voice was good, and so was Batmans. In fact, I loved the way Egoraptor exaggerated Batman's voice, nice job.
After Batman knocked Joker out however, it got a bit... boring, but it was still entertaining to watch.
Overall nice job, getting a bit close to the Egoraptor style, but you still have your own kinda way of pulling it off. Well done, looking forward to see future animation by you.
You are an fbf god!
You've turned a story, into a masterpiece. Seriously man, I don't know anyone else who can do frame by frame animation like you can.
If you were trying to show expression and personality in this flash, you've definitely achieved that. You've achieved something here that you can't achieve with tweens; fluid human (or anthropomorphic as the case may be) movement and emotion. Although you still haven't exactly got the fluid part down pat, you've done a brilliant job, and I love your work. You have also managed to pull off an amazing 3D perspective, which is REALLY hard to do.
The only reason I gave this a nine, is because it wasn't overly entertaining. It took a while to get somewhere, and it was also a little... slow in parts. But overall it made me chuckle, and I liked the minimalistic effect.
You're an inspiration to me, annd I'm sure an inspiration to all budding animators out there.
Sorry for the long winded speech, but seriously, love your work.
The only reason I gave this a nine,
I like the look of this new character you've got on your userpage, looks a bit shifty. Is it you?
Hehe, loved it as usual!
Okay, so it wasn't my favourite avatar dub to date, but it was still hilarious!
I was a bit disappointed at Katara's voice in this dub, as I always look forward to you portraying her as some old man, but... ah well. Can't have everything, can we. Also, I missed you doing Toph's voice. It's the best! (But she isn't in this episode, so I don't blame ya!)
Some great lines in here, I loved it!
You are such a talented voice actor, and you'll definitely be on the top of my list for future projects! The thing I love about it, is your range. Everything from a slightly gay accent, to a really nerdy voice. What I just can't get is how you do this on the spot! Are you serious? Amazing.
But the main thing I love about the whole thing, is that it's so believable! The syncing is done so well, (whether it's planned or not) that you could swear you're watching another show. And the script matches what's happening on the screen... that sounds stupid though. You know what I mean.
Love you're work man, really clever.
And my favourite quotes?
"I mixed orange and yellow once... AND I'M TWENTY FIVE!"
"We're very clever in the use of scene transitions!"
Oh. My god.
Words just... can't describe how epic and awesome this is.
You're animation was fucking awesome. You are a fight scene GOD.
Loved the expressions, and it was entertaining the whole way through.
Absolutely fucking loved, you've used the glow effect to its full potential! (even of the faces!)
Love your work, fav'd and 5'd.
Can't say I was expecting much, but I was pleasantly suprised!
You have a great sense of animation, and your animation skills could take you far if you practice a bit more. Well done on that aspect.
However... your drawing. You are quite a skilled artist, but on further inspection of your close up shots, and character designs, things could have gone a bit smoother. But hey, they looked fantastic nontheless!
Another thing, is you really need to "sell" this a bit better. Your choice of icon gives nothing away, not even a face. For all the viewer knows, it could be random shapes. A customized preloader would have been nicer, and even a menu. If you have trouble with these things, I would be more than happy to help out (And don't see this as me begging for a collaborative effort, I mean just some help with use of buttons and making a preloader etc. got too much on my plate already).
Anyway, you have loads of potential, and can't wait to see more. Next time, maybe create a menu and preloader, and polish it up a bit, even if this was a pilot episode.
wow. thanks. seeing this reminds me why i love animation
this was done a long time ago. i was teaching myself all of that stuff at the time. i remember just figuring out a scene selection menu. now that knowledge is lost. but dont worry, it will come back easily. i may call on you for some preloader help.
ok then, i seem to be quite impatient. im working on it though. ive learned that i should slow down. that will lead to greater attention to detail.
I see what you did there...
You've taken the whole presidential election, and turned it into something 8 year olds can understand! POKEYMANZ!
I thought it was really clever and original, and the way you mixed the two (election + pokemon), was very well done.
Perfect music, backgrounds, even the evolution! That made me LOL.
Can't really relate to it entirely, as I live in Australia, but you've put together a great flash, which is also a pretty good representation of the election... kinda.
Anywayz, awesome job. :D
