I saw a GIF of this on Reddit and I hated it because it cut it off on the 'ALWAYS' That's such an old joke - I was almost angry at it. Seeing it here with all your lovely art, animation, and voices - I feel much better. The second half keept it from being stale as opposed to the GIF and I personally find text gags like the 'YES' at the end hilarious.
REVISED OPINION: NICE WORK!
yeah whoever made that gif is a fucking idiot
That was simple and beautiful. I loved it and just wanted to let you know.
You seem to have a handle on claymation but you need to refine your style and elongate your narrative. This could've easily have been a long movie if you had just connected the plots together.
PS: It was nice hearing my music in a submission. Feel free to do it again ;)
PRetty good for a first try.
I've certainly seen worse 1st submissions to Newgrounds so good job on that. As far as your cartoon goes, try working with more movement in your animations. Movement, even subtle ones, holds the audience's interest even during slow scenes.
Other than that, nice first attempt. Go for gold and make it longer, more animated, and with more color next time!
I will do that, next time. Walking, ect.
I do admit I slacked a bit in this, I was just messing around really, but I thought I'd put it up here to see what you people think. As for colour, I was experimenting a bit, but I think in my next one I will have more colour. This was just sort of built around the preloader.
Would've done for better in the collab.
On it's own though it doesn't justify the 4.7MB file size.
The first set of dialouge lagged behind the animation - so that was weird and the joke - well...it was so-so.
Keep trying, hopefully you'll get in next time!
constructive criticism is always good, thanks, and about the lag, that´s weird, my computer is pretty decent and didn´t seem to lag on it, maybe i should check that out, it´s on youtube if you want to watch it lagless, and yeah, the menu and all that stuff was what made it so big.
Hehe, nice work! The music was great and your character and animations fit it all perfectly! The montage of date activites with the sandwhich was hilarious and it all looked great. My only gripe is with the beach scene - something about it just looked weird and stiff to me - whatever, great work!
Twas alright, just some polish needed.
You've done quite well merging events with music, the whole sequence flowed pretty well. I, however, found it rather hard to follow what was going on sometimes thanks to the blur filter. Try and limit using the blur filter to point where it's actually logical and appropriate to use (for example, when an object enters the scene, blur the background but ALSO unblur the object so focus is brought to it).
Additionally, I didn't really know what was going on but perhaps viewing the rest of your series would help. I dunno, maybe flesh out you story more so everyone can enjoy it even if they haven't seen the rest of the series?
Other than that, pretty good work. With some practice you'll be on the way to making some really superb stuff.
Yeah, the opening was a bit extensive in the blurring, but that was the style I felt it needed.
Thanks for the review.
I'm only dissapointed because I was hoping for
something more expected. I thought at the night segment it would've been something like: "NIGHT.......... DELEVER GIFTS" Then various shots of will giving presents to zombies. Hence the I Am Christmas. Oh well - next year maybe?
It is nearly impossible
for me to describe how amazing that was. I think only us sick crazy animators will find this a fucking hilarious as I did. I couldn't stop laughing. Seriously - epic.
It's been so long since I've been here - I'm glad I found your movie. Makes me remember why I love this place :D
That has to be THE BEST story of the portal ever.
I absoletely loved this piece of yours. It has to be the very best NG reference in the world.
If you have no idea of the backstory of NG its still lovely with its whimisical style, pleasing art, and good music choice. Understanding NG however, we can see that little Tom planted the portal one day which grew to be a magnificent place but it held some unpleasant surprises! Poorly concieved flash submissions, flame wars, and more - it almost killed poor Tom until our saviour, Strawberry came to save Tom and his portal. He showed him the magic of the internet but sadly had to go away to make the portal a better place.
I sure hope I didn't get that entierly wrong :P Regardless, this was a wonderful masterpiece. I loved every second of it. :D
