I love the flow of this animation, and the fact that you can literally watch it twice and make it feel somehow different using the option to choose black or white.
Art and Animation 4.5/5:
very well done in this department...the only complaint is that some things went by too quickly to have the same effect as the other short animations within the movie.
Plot and Storyline 4/5:
Although not a true plot or story, the animation gave off a variety of messages, though some were vaguer and more subtle than others. The flow was a little off on some of the parts, as I mentioned above.
Music, Voice Acting, and Sound Effects 4/5:
The song of choice was of great quality and matched very well to the theme you weretrying to achieve.
This animation is rather amazing, and the fact that you didnt let length be an obstacle and gave off the message you were aiming for is admirable. Overall, very great job!
Out of all the flashes you find on newgrounds, I found this one to be one of the most unique! The style was strikingly original and cool, meshing together both comedy and rather cool scenes to make for a fun animation. The pacing was good too, but i felt like things ended rather quickly and the general didnt get enough face time.
Art and Animation 5/5:
Wonderful details mesh well with the actually simplistic character design, bringing focus to the areas that matter. Shading, awesome special effects, and great backgrounds help seal the deal.
Plot and Pacing 4.5/5:
an interesting plot, marred only by the shortness of the flash and the lack of face time for the main villain, akin to darth mauls demise.
Music, Voice Acting, and Sound Effects 5/5:
the whole way through I found the sound to be high quality, with great actors, great sound effects, and great music.
Overall this was a great short that all participants can be proud of, in all accounts. I can see this series becoming rather popular if it continues as it is.
The art and animation were great, the concept was cool as well, but I feel some components that could have made this amazing were missing. For one, the music left much to be desired, and I feel that if something were created to match the scenes, the animation would be much more powerful.
Another thing is that I feel that a few more setup scenes to flesh out what exactly was being accomplished would have made the audience more invested in the animation; possibly some scenes to elaborate on the sacred rule and the direness of their situation that required them to break it, maybe even add some depth (or really even add a layer at all to them) to the human protagonists.
All in all, you did a great job, but it certainly doesnt seem like a final cut, and it would be great to see a more fleshed out version if you ever did one
I like the drawings, and your perspective is well done, but I also feel like you dont quite grasp weight and timing very well. Try to experiment with making everything look more forceful, especially with falling or thrown objects.
...it was great in the animation and presentation, but the way you related this animation to COD-COD was cheap, and seemed like a lazy attempt to make this moer than just a stickanimation. I think it would be better if you would make COD-COD more important to the introduction than just it's logo being used as a weapon.
...im so sorry to say it, but that kid who was talking is a faggot, through and through. I couldnt stand it, and I noticed some really lazy moments when it came to the art and animation. Also, work on your spelling, because you were one letter away from telling us it was cumming soon. :\
you never made me care that the cat died. This happens every day, and I dont see why I should care that the cat was hit.
oh my god....
you completely nailed everything on the dot. I laughed the whole way through, man!
wtf, you must have been bored to come up with that ending. O.O Good everything, however, as I enjoyed it. Make it longer next time, though
you faithfully recreated many of Newground's greats, down to some great nostalgia.
great song, good chance to shine with your tribute
This is as low as it is, not because the animations were bad, but because it all lead to a less than amazing flow. It all seemed to come in at an even pace and it wasnt very powerful to me.
Due to your timing and lack of power, it wasnt as entertaining as it could have been, but I enjoyed seeing you faithfully recollect some of my favorites.
Good job on this, overall, but I think you could have timed this better so that I would leave amazed.
