Skyrim Dawnguard in a nutshell here. Congratulations on being the first one to parody it.
Kidding aside a nice little short. I especially liked the bat squeak after now we feed.
That squeak was meant to instil FEAR!
This collab is certainly an experience. Intertwined movie insane plots mixed with easteregg mayhem.
At first, I wondered why they weren't separate movies and then they all blended together and built on each-other and random Easter eggs that I don't even know how I got to appear from every direction. At first I thought the second movie was a crime board but I clicked on it again and it was a movie and it was awesome. I dunno if that was a glitch or intentional or if it happened to be midnight but I almost missed the second movie cause of it. I still don't know how to get back to that crime scene board or the platforming game but lots of other eastereggs I figured out. Awesome work guys I spent a good half hour on this thing and it was great.
This is great! The results tell me this is the best type of short time limit collab. I hadn't thought of passing a flash around the world that is pretty genius. I hope you guys do another one someday. Only perhaps having the music sorted out before you begin will help it be completed after 3 days for real barring natural disasters.
Agreed... heh heh.
Carrtoony with a dab of ouch
Allow me to over-analyze the situation for a moment: That girl clearly should not be running shes practically blind to things in front of her face. Although, she does seems fairly indestructible. Now that I think about it that bus driver is probably blind as well or its the wrong bus cause it didn't even try to slow down and check the stop. I'd guess she rides the bus fairly often if she knows where its going so well and the bus drive should recognize her.
Your animation is a nice cartoony frame by frame. It definitely reminded me of the classics. Except, I'm used to the stars circling around the head not spinning in the eyes. I look forward to more from you. I predict at least one person will complain that it is too short. The one real criticism I have with this animation is the super thick lines on her as she turns the corner in the beginning maybe that was the first thing you did or just an odd day.
I suggest looking at the audio portal for music so your animations are immune to copy-write calamities. Searching the audio portal for the word race would bring up tons of free to use stuff that could fit an animation like this.
When I did that turn the corner animation in the beginning, I planned on keeping the same line thickness for the character throughout the whole animation. After animating that, I realized that it would have been better to use smaller lines for it, but I didn't think much of it.
And thanks for the tip about the audio portal. I'll keep that in mind for future animations.
fairly good graphics, poor plot
Set your sound into single track and change the properties to stream so it syncs better. Easy way to do that in flash is to export the flash as sound and use that to replace the current sound.
This is good animation for what it is, unfortunately its not original and the story is not good enough. Let me clarify that last sentence, I am not talking about how Fakemon are like the same things as Pokemon or that it includes monster battles, I am talking about how there is no original story here. You do not provide your characters with motive or background and frankly your character could be an excerpt of any main character of the Pokemon series. Set your story apart with unique motivation personalities and plot events then it will be interesting. Going all battles will not work well without the battle being earth shattering. Another thing that sells well is comedy so consider working something funny or parodyish into it if you want more view on newgrounds.
I really enjoyed your sound choices in combination with equally comical stick fight movements. This is sort of like the three stooges, mixed with Jazz, fighting some aloof bobbley headed guy with a gun and a lot of friends. The pace of this flash is spot on allowing a proper story as well as character personalities and relationships to develop without narration. The animation is not just another story of under-characterized sticks slaughter each other with reckless abandon and that makes it awesome. Its like in movies sword fights are always better when they last a while even if this is unrealistic. I only wish it didn't end as soon as it did. I think even without a conclusion its an improvement from Dominant Stick 1 which was also funny. I especially like the improvement in head movement. Bobbley head and funny faces ftw.
Btw the title screen looks like it says 00MINENT STICK 2.
poor weather clouds
Oh look what you did... Now I'm going to feel bad whenever I complain about the weather. Thanks a lot... Nice animation simple, effective, well voiced, I really like it.
Nice Flash written at some unholy time of night
As this is one of the cleverest and best written stick figure series I can think of at 3am; I would really like to see you get some good voice actors. You really only have three characters that I imagine(at 2am) talk. Sometimes, at 4am, it is hard for me to read the text here in time especially the "element" category title went by fast and was a surprise to me so I missed it. You could possibly make better use of your camera angle there is often quite a bit of empty space it also rarely pans or zooms. You could also make your lines smoother in backgrounds and closeups by optimization or smoothing or magic. At 5am I still think the beginning scene with navi voice was genius. The whole detail of animation is of noticeably higher quality than I remember previous ones being, at 6am. Good job In the end the thing that will probably improve this the most is voice acting there are probably lots of people out there who will do it for you. Also if you do get VAing you will probably want to stream your sound. err yeah I tell people to set their sound to stream way too much so I end up saying it everywhere even if I bet you would do that without me saying anything.
In the end, at 4:30am, I am typing too many unnecessary words goodnight.
AWESOME! Thanks for this useful yet entertaining review. I actually tried "streaming" the audio.... But it got screwed up and I just went back to event :3
I would love to know how to do it properly though :D
And thanks again for giving me some good feedback :3
set your audio to "stream"
Set your audio properties to stream in the future so the music stays in sync with the rest of the flash. Its a very attractive but simple and short flash when the audio is in sync good job.
That is the scariest mom I've seen in a while. The vocal patterns of a parrot the face of a grandma and the body and mind of a succubus. I almost suspect she was made by a plastic surgeon named Dr. Frankenstein.
