I don't really get it...
...But okay, the animation was good, the mouths are my favorite. I sorta feel like it's gonna become what defines an awesome cartoon, just cause it's so ridiculous. Keep up the good work.
meh... it could have been better
While I get that you put a lot of time into this, it wasn't really all that good. You didn't spend anytime on the story, I sort of get the main idea, but it was like you left out some scenes, or just expected us to understand it, which I didn't. have you ever considered storyboarding out your animation first to make sure it all flows correctly? Also, cliches are nice, if they are used effectively, regardless of whether or not you're going for a serious or comical type of cartoon. This was, from what I could tell, a serious animation, and the cliches didn't seem to fit that.
But was this a serious cartoon? I kept seeing these really lame jokes stuck in here and there, but at the wrong times, like when the God thing was destroying everything, the guy with the green hair make some joke about fixing his robot, and that just wasn't the right time for a joke, it was a serious moment. It's like you tried to smoosh both comedy and gravity in this, without consideration of timing or placing.
The art was fair, but you really need to spend more time making the drawings consistent, when the village weakling was being thrown into the air by the townspeople, he was growing and shrinking, instead of just going up and down. and in general, it could use some improvements.
The audio was fair, though I think you should spend some more time making the volume consistent. That was my only real complaint about it.
Timing is something that every animation needs, yours lacked... not only in the jokes(as I mentioned before) but in the animation too. If you study regular anime, you'll notice that they waste a lot of time, with the camera zoomed up at someones face, while they talk in their head, or are surprised, those shots can last up to 30 seconds. You didn't have anything like that, to smoothen it out, it reminded me of one of the older awesome cartoons, which went really fast, but, consistently, yours jerked around too much.
Over all, I though it was a good start, but more of a rough draft, definitely not a final, finished work. Go and watch some anime to look for some of the key consistent things that you notice in all of them, and apply them to this (not the cliches, just general animation stuff) Be sure to figure out whether or not it's a comedy or serious animation, And also be sure to work on timing.
Remember that we don't know what's going on at all, so you have to explain it through the animation.
I liked you're animation better before
you got a tablet, things looked a lot cooler, now it's like it's gotten worse... still a good movie, though it could have been better.
I know :/. I hadn't fully figured out how to get crisp lines with the tablet until yesterday.
But I have a few other projects on the list that I'm planing on using my old no-outline style with.
it was okay...
But the animation was lacking... you should try and get yourself a tablet... also, try just doing some animation practices to improve you skills... honestly I don't think it deserves a 3.93 (current score) but I don't know... keep working to improve.
I think this is the first time I've actually seen something scary on newgrounds... omg, I don't like being next to windows!
I loved it!
you animation has improved so much over the course of you time on newgrounds... and this one was fantastic, I can't wait to see more from you!
you have a really awesome style
while the animation was rather short, I was very good. you also did a great job with the character design I hope to see a full version someday...
that's how fast a normal human can process things... Shit!
...this is amazing...
I liked it, but...
The first one was better, and a lot of the graphics seemed unperfected, unlike in the last one. I was super excited when I saw this on the front page, but was kinda disappointed. Anyways, it was still good, keep it up.
that was f***ing awesome
you guys are the best team, don't spot making them! shading really makes it more professional looking.
