Amazing art style and lip sync as usual, but as you said, it is a little to much of nothing.
The real issue would be if everyone wasn't being boring, everyone would be after your jade monkey dragon.
Amazing story board
You can tell you put a lot of work into this. You need to resubmit it with a title page/loader and give a brief introduction as to what it is, or else other NG user will see it as trash.
This is a great example for new animators to get a sense of what it takes to make a animated short. Extablishing a Animatic prior to jumping into all the detail really helps make a story and animation crisp.
Your drawings are well done, and you have a great look to your project already. Keep it up, and I look forward to seeing the final product.
Very nice look
The look of it was amazing, and you definitely got a feel for the atmosphere within the animation. The shortness really kills that feeling, I'm sure you put a lot of work into animating this, but to really keep your viewers glued is to give them more of this in one dose.
Over all great work!
I must say I'm normally impressed by fight scene flashes, but you took the time to give your character's bodies. i hate when people put tons of work in their animations, and end up using stick figures.
I like to see people successfully come together and produce good work. You all did very nice, and each one of you presented a strength. If I may suggest, in the future you all could take on partial rolls in all aspects of the development of a flash animation.
For example, many of you were good at FbF, where as a few of you really took the time to create BGs. Working together, you all could create a more uniform, and less diverse piece without all the hassle of doing it yourself.
I loved the character animation, as well as the concept. Beautiful.
Continue to entertain us all!
Very well done
Very good look.
You can tell your a BrakenWood Forum user, plus I myself have seen you around on there myself. I don't mean to auction your credit off to Adam as most people will do...
It's just obvious that you have taken his teachings and recreated your own work. Its very good, and I found all the special effects to be well done. I won't question the story, it seemed as if it were one of those shorts that are left to the imagination.
Over all a 7, good job.
this reminded me of 8bit D&D, but it was funny. Any gamer, exspecially one who has played dice games, should indeed find this funny. I didnt care for the graphics though, and almost blammed it before watching, but my kind heart gave it a try, and it surpased my initial judgement.
Simple yet effective...
I love the DBZ influence, and the pope hiumor. Your graphics were tremendously good, consistant, and portrayed that Anime style; A very appealing look. Your sound was simple, yet clear. I felt like i was watching a very cartoony anime.
I say you get some 3D artists to make you back grounds and stuff and you could be the 2D animator. Thats what most animes look like, and by 3d i dont mean computer 3D, i just mean drawn with realistic shading...etc. It would make it more like an anime, but your existing style is great.
looking forward to the 2nd episode.
Color isnt your problem, it is your qualety of graphics. If you spent more time on the look of your scenes, and characters, then it would look better. You have a basic grasp of animation, and if you spend more itme making everything more presentable, you should shurely do well.
