Oh wow dude! 10 minutes!? That looked like a ton of work!
Those 3D backgrounds are crazy awesome! Great job blending them with your
2D characters. Also the VO is so expressive, great job all. Funny dialouge, great action, and super cool music! I'm curious about the overarching story and how this new character relates.
This is your best yet!!! Super excited for more. XD
Thanks! I had a hard time blending the characters with the background in the past, so I'm glad I'm improving! And I'm so glad the voices fit. Poor voice acting plagued my past work.
So glad I pledged to the kickstarter! Amazing work!!!
I LOVE the voice acting and the music! Great work there. They are so good that this is actually really entertaining with the audio alone. I also think the world you've developed here is really interesting and well thought out.
My biggest complaint is the animation, character designs, and backgrounds. The animation is very flat and not as expressive as it could be. The character line art and the background line art could be cleaner as well. I enjoy the color choices in the background but the compositons are flat and have little depth and are poorly drawn at times.
This is a very ambitious project and I really admire your dedication to this original work of art! Keep it up! :D
Ok i will grow up now, I appreciate the review, the sound work and music is what I am most proud of, but I don't think you have a right to "complain" about the character designs, animation and backgrounds. I am really proud of how the bgs turned out, whether or not they're flat, it's just my style and took a tonne of work, especially on my small ass bamboo fun tablet, you get to a certain zoom level where it's almost impossible to draw, so naturally the linework isn't going to be consistent. The animation is sloppy here and there for sure, but it's a step up from my normal work. In terms of criticizing character design, you rely on copyrighted characters, with simple aesthetics. Sorry but you came across a little patronizing, to me anyway. Cheers.
That was crazy cool! Kinda reminded me of Adventure Time... but better.
Better than adventure time... holy crap awesome. Its funny how many people say how much my work reminds me of that show. I'll take it though thanks
Zelda looked like a giant man dressed in drag.
haha jeez, i knew i sucked at drawing women, but i didn't think it was that bad!
You really built it up at the beginning when you said it was something people can learn from and that they should examine your animation frame by frame to learn something...
There really wasn't that much animation for what was there.. but when they did move it was jerky and wasn't very smooth, even for a rough animation. I'd say it was a good effort and that you have some talent, but its just a big turn off when you read a disclaimer like that at the beginning. Just say its "unfinished" and leave it at that. I also felt like the characters all looked like that Sasuke guy from Naruto... and I hate Naruto so no bonus points there.
Hoping you'll take it down a notch next time and be a bit more humble. Artists shouldn't have egos, because if they already think theyre such hot shit then they'll never get better.
That's JUST what being a fourteen year old girl is like! ...if you have super powers and walk around half naked.
Good for a second flash!
Nice original story based in the Zelda world. I was expecting Link to appear at some point but it was still interesting none the less!
I didn't know this was only your second attempt at making an animation! Great work for your second attempt (my second attempt was much worse lol) My favorite thing about this was the use of color- very vibrant and you chose lots of great purples and stark contrasts that really remind me of the majora's mask art style. I also loved the cinematic camera angles- you really have an eye for setting the mood in that way.
The thing that bothered me the most was the character animation. If seems like nearly all of this was tweened. In some places that works just fine but in others it looks very awkward. I used to only tween when I first started using flash but after reading some books on traditional 2D animation I realized that frame by frame animation is MUCH more effective and much less restrictive. Try learning some frame by frame techniques and implimenting that into the tweening techniques that work well in your animations.
Thanks for sharing this! :D
Yeah I wanted to have the charcters try to hold their own without Link because I really admire them :) So far I am incredibley grateful for the constructive comments I've recieved about this, especially from and artist that inspires me such as you. Yeah this wouldn't have made it without the darkness of major that I love so much. The most that I could ask is that people want to revisit the game after this.
You know you are absolutely right! Frame by frame is my logical next step, so maybe you could pm me some pointers on where to begin with that. haha I sure love to throw that camera around. ffex is showing me how to make it less squishy, thank you for your review :)
I adore this cartoon. I watch it at least once a month since it came out! The animation is hilarious, and it's actually one of the first cartoons I've seen that was gross enough that I actually had cringed at times. LOVE IT. Spazkid is a super talented aniamtor, I remember him starting out animating in paint on youtube! He's really come a long way since then. I'm not a big fan of making a Parody of a Parody of a Parody but this one really was funny. I think people not involved in this community would like it but I LOVE IT. Can't stop saying it haha- Great work.
