Awesome concept, but more importantly - amazing animation!
I really loved the art style, and the layering effects of the landscape (how closer trees would move faster than the ones further back).
Keep at it, man! This is some great stuff here.
Thought you could've done a lot better concerning the animation itself. You seem to have a decent understanding of walk cycles and other basic motion. Some of the art could have been enhanced, such as the backgrounds and even the facial images (Elvis, etc).
I did get a kick out of the "Baby Boom" joke, though.
Overall, the concept was nice, but I feel that more effort could have been put into it.
Thanks! Glad you liked it.
I noticed that there was no ambiance whatsoever. Occasionally, when the bride was talking, there would be that "electric buzz" from the voice actress' mic. When someone else was talking, the video was dead quiet besides this. I would've put in some quiet sounds, such as wedding music or birds singing (in case a window was up.). The animation was fine, itself.
Yeah, I can definitely see what you're saying. I probably need to have someone who is much more audio minded than myself take a pass at our cartoons in the future.
I haven't seen anything on NG like this since "There She Is!!" It's ashamed that I had to view this at night, whereas if I had watched it in the morning, my day would be brilliant. I'm glad to have watched this, even if I'm not into anime.
I actually would like to see the forty-five minute version.
at least you'll have sweet dreams. :)
no one is allowed to see the 45 minutes, it's off limits. Sorry friend.
Anyways, thank you for your appreciation.
I think I understand...
The "Stick Dude" has a black body, and thus, can't be seen due to the black background. Or so I think.
Still, a lot more could be done with this. In fact, you could put several "ways" into one .fla and then submit it, rather than fill up the portal with twenty second videos.
Hooray! It's up!
Jesus Christ, this was worked for. I even giggled/smiled at parts I already saw. This turned out to be a cute little flash after all! See you guys next year!
evilrabbitking has a point.
Only he approached it wrong.
How would you guys like it if a nobody like me started advertising?
We're all people. So why is it that celebrities get special rights among the NG community. I understand the bluebaby is talented, but honestly, the flash portal isn't for ads. To be honest, this did not deserve a 4.14 (score as of the time being).
It seems that the beloved "Flash Gods" of NewGrounds are untouchable. It's almost as if they could work 5 minutes on a flash and would get a 4.5 on their score.
I'm not saying they didn't work hard to get where they are at, but I'm ashamed of the site's public. A few good flashes should not mean that the animator/programmer is to always receive a great score unless they work for it.
That said, I think it's time to talk about this flash.
- Cute animation +6
- Fitting music +2
- Basic art style, fitting for the above reasons +1
- Decent length +1
- (See Above Rant) -5
...Action! A stick movie that is considered violent needs much, much more action in it, however the animation/movement itself was fairly clean for using most/all paint tool.
Great rant, and most (if not all) of your stuff is true!
...Great. The animation that there was, was very well done. Keep it up, but make it LONGER!
