Shit got SERIOUS. I remember the first 2 were so lighthearted, then THIS!? I'm glad I decided to get back on Newgrounds for a bit. Might've missed this. Good show, sir. By God, good show. Gotta remember to come back when you finish it. I also need this music x_x.
Very nice. You seem to have a lot of technical aspects down, so I'm wondering why you decided to keep the size of the window the way it was. Clearly the edge of the frame was supposed to be the red box, so why not just make the document that size?
Good stuff nonetheless.
Not my kind of art style, but that's not really an issue here. Gotta admit, that whole time the guy on the computer is telling Mason to get out, all I could think of was "This guy's gunna get screwed, right around the next corner, here! Right here! No? Okay, the next one XD"
Suspenseful, to say the least :3. Good stuff, sir.
No, dude, don't ever finish anything. These are pretty damn awesome as it is XD. I personally wouldn't mind seeing more of these sketchy unfinished things.
While I can certainly see how the entire body moving would make the entirety of the animation a little more...unified, I suppose, I think the idea was that the average of people who try to do that with an entire animation tend to warp the final product so much that even though everything was FBF'd, it looks like a melting pile of solid, condensed poop. Normally, an FBF animation would have the entire body doing something anyways, correct? Something along the lines of the "++" series, i.e. Rush, that town thing...I forgot the guy's name, but he is a damn good FBF'er.
As for the actual tutorial, It's very nice. The music, while not applying to anything specifically, was nice to just listen to, and that was enough to make me watch it over and over again. Not just that, but the actual tutorial was nice and simple as well, not taking too many complicated explanations, with a fairly "simple" example. I wish you could've added a button however, that would show each picture, frame by frame every time it was pushed, just so we could get an idea of your own timing. The Beedril (If that's it's name, I lost track of Pokemon for a while lolz) moved quite erratically, as is it's nature, and I would've liked to have been able to freeze it at certain junctions to see exactly what I'm seeing.
Good job though, and I certainly liked your work in the anime collab.
You're right, animating the entire body is just more interesting to look at then a single moving object. I just thought it would be easier to explain the problem from a simple point of view, then it would be obvious enough of how to apply it to the rest of the body. I think animation is something you learn from drawing/art and just mere practice. Like vinnie++, he probably practices all the time. If you browse his site you can see some crazy gif shit he has created. I really suggest you find those gifs--
Don't count, eh.
ALSO to the reviewer before me, before...the other guy. You know who I'm talking about.
Anyways. You in my review=guy before, before me. Not you.
If you had been a WWII Vet or something, I could understand your spite. But you're not. You're 13. You've no idea what it means to "be in a war". Not only that, your pitiful excuse for a semi-rant contradicts itself. First you say all we were was a meddling disturbance in WWI. Then you go off and say that your the ones who suffered? Oh, well I'm fucking sorry, would it have been better we left you alone? It's laughable that you can say we have no idea what it is to be in a war, when the last war you can only remember in textbooks was 40 years before you were fucking born. Get over yourself.
as for the flash itself, it'd be nice if we knew who was invading and who was defending. Naturally, I would believe that the Americans were green, and whoever else was blue. But the Green guys were the ones landing, and the blue were defending on home turf. A little confusing is all.
It was nice that you tied in the credits with the nuke scene, but the "thank you for watching" kind of lowered the...meaning.
Thank you for watching.
I have a...very personal favor to ask.
It goes without saying, but I'm a humongous fan of the 3 flashes you've done. I've been trying to make a third flash myself, but my drawings do NOT compare to yours at all, not even slightly. Hell, even the individual lines are cleaner.
I wanted to know if maybe you could teach me to draw a little bit. I've been watching that small drawing progression at the beginning of your flash at least a couple dozen times, trying to see what you've done and how you got there, but it's not enough. As a very huge, huge, personal favor to me, I would like to ask, if it is not too much trouble on your part, to teach me a little bit of your abilities. Stick figure to finished drawing. I've tried stick figures but they never come out right, and after watching your flashes I have renewed faith in the process.
If you could IM me on AIM on PnoyZorro, I would be eternally indebted to you. Seriously. Please.
Sorry man, but I accidentally clicked on 0 instead of 5 for your flash ><.
I was on another window and tried to click on the back button but I pressed down too early O_o...You deserved that 5 ^^;
Everyone knows the egg came first.
Only because you eat eggs in the morning, and chicken at night.
Good stuff man. The "naught naught naught" part was a bit long lolz, but the evolutionary chart with Dubya was awesome.
Feel proud =O
Lol, that flash has been posted on a forum I frequent, and it was damn worth it.
Good freakin' job man.
