Same as last time:
I thought it was funny how you has little inserts to every charachter with their stereotypes whilst having it in a story line. I particularly liked the one with Pinkie Pie at the beginning. I wouldn't say any were bad but that pinkie pie one made me laugh hehe. HOW DARE YOU DISRESPECT FLUTTERSHY! SHE NO DO BROHOOF! GRRRRR
Seemed fine in this one, no complaints.
Animation and drawings:
Now I know you said those changing warbles were intentional but this is me and they do bug me. It just seemed inconsistant even though it was intentional.
I also picked up that the pinkie pie looks completely different in the 2 "angle shots" that you did, where as Twilight looked pretty much the same. Just something there.
I loved how they seemed to have bags under their eyes, that was pretty funny to be honest. The little things like the weird brohoofing and the way they would talk made me giggle. In all honesty for me this was actually very humerous and I got a few kicks out of it. . Love your referencing and the godspeed. It all worked very well. .
What games was that cheat code for? xD
I was trying to get one pinkie pie to look dopier than the other. Nothing much I can do about the animation and how the wobbles change speed in places. I wanted that there and I don't want to change it. :)
Glad you got a kick out of this one too. The cheat code was just made up. :c
Again, thanks for your reviews. :)
Okay, well for the most part this was actually really good. I'll break this down as I would normally:
Short, but it worked and I kept following it all the way through. It made me giggle. Not much more to add there, I like those little references that you put in there too. For me it just added a little more to it. (Dark humour is always growing on me)
Animation and drawings:
I thought that jumping man was funny seeing as he's old but somehow he has the energy to get to the toy store (not dissing old people). I didn't like the fact that I saw the word "c*nt" on the sun. . Dunno how I missed that befre, but unless that meant something. . it just seemed a little un needed for me. You know I like your warbles and this was no different, though I felt that this time it was a little to defined in terms of movement. . That's not a bad thing, I just prefer when you had those really quick and think warbles in each frame HUR HUR DUBSTEP! Nothing wrong, just something on a personal level.
Now I never picked this up when I was listening on the TV as everything unless headphones are plugged in comes out in mono. I noticed the sound comes oput of the left speaker, this is also apparrent in some of your songs. . like that one where you only used your voice. . I think something's wrong there but youi can easily sort that out, though for me it is quite off putting.
I also noticed that in some diologue there was "static", as if you chopped the dialogue up into words and stuff. . Did you put it into Slicer? Just wondering. For me it sounds like that clicking noise. . Also I can hear when you change voice from clip to clip. . That's not a bad thing, but it's something I picked up.
The sound in terms of me hearing it was fine, nothing to complain about there. I could follow it quite easily.
For the most part it was good, very funny for me. You know my humor and this stuff is weirdly funny. . There is probably some old man out there that can relate to this flash. . oh god wtf.
For me it was good but 2 little things let you down. . I should have picked up on the c*nt thng earlier but that seemd to have slipped my eyes. Good work Oliver. . I know this took a long time and for me it paid off.
Glad you noticed the energetic old man - I had the intention of having that as a silly little thing. The "cunt" on the sun was just a silly spur of the moment thing, as well as the adverts at the toy shop saying "shit a dick" and "shit toys £1". I think it's all innappropriate and that's why I felt like including it - I wanted a lot of my immaturity to come into this project.
The wobbly figures might seem a bit too refined but I tried making it cleaner than my previous works so that's probably why. A lot of people are mentioning the sound only comes out of the left speaker - not too sure why but that's one of the few things that isn't intentional. I didn't put my vocals into a slicer either so all of the clicking or static is simply what the microphone picks up when I'm not talking. That, or it's just transitioning from one sound clip to another.
I'm still glad you found it humorous and that you enjoyed it though. Thanks for the review - I really appreciate it. :)
You have good taste in musical choice in your animations ;D. I mist say it was really weird but I dunno it's was more comedy for me, I liked it a lot and I must say I followed it pretty well, good job overall. . I don't like madness animations much but this was pretty cool. /faved
Anwar Louis ^_^
thanks a lot :)
I like this, your mix of animations really went well. I could maybe see some of them making really cool full animations *cough* to our music *cough*. The funniest one for me was the hedgehog one, I wasn't expecting that - though with your humour it's hard to predict what you come up with (that's a good thing).
I hope you return from your retirement some time.
I'll start off by saying I did love the use of Alberto Balsam, it suited the animation very well and in my opinion added a just that little dose of ambience to the animation it needed. Was a good little story, and it was a really good watch. . I watch this every now and then for inspiration. . From the times we've spoken before, I think you doubt yourself a lot, and way too much for that matter, the time and effort you put into this shows and so does the dedication throughout the body of your work from when you started to now. By the way, the wobbles OWN (they're what makes it your signature thing) :D!
Anyway, to the flash animation in hand I wasn't that much of a fan of the animation behind the pre-loader. . to me it didn't seem to go that much with it (nothing big though)
At the beginning of when the animation started, it was like the road sort of ended like a cliff (as it warbled). . I guess there was nothing wrong with that, but it just seemed a bit of an 'off the page' thing and I wasn't sure about that (again nothing big). .
The rest was awesome, very well executed and he turned into the blob ;D! Mechablob? Hehehehehehehehe. Awesome as always man, I hope you'll be able to get some new stuff out in the future *fingers crossed*
BIG UPS PLAYA hehehe. x3
Stick fights fail, especially Xiao -Xiao. I'm surprised one person couldn't be taken down by so many sticks of the same shape o.o. I was waiting for the twist and it came. . "I AM THE HERO". .Yes you are! 10/10 sir! :D
For something simple like that, it had the punch that was needed. Could easily be a sketch in a kids show or even a comedy show. In a nutshell, thought it was brilliant.
In all honesty, this is one of the funniest things I've heard on Newgrounds to date. Like these "professionally done" parodies are trash compared to this. I suppose it's my opinion on humour. Very funny indeed, probably because it has that stupid element to it. It's a shame you don't do flash these days as much as you used to. . . I suppose some of the other reviewers don't share the same interests as me, but I can remember watching this on your youtube channel and nearly laughing myself silly XD. (I'm sad like that). .
In a nutsell, I'll be taking your place if you don't carry on flash animating XDDD. Awesome as always, you'll get where you want in time to come! :D
How did you compresss that all to 768KB? O.O
lol well thank you. i'm glad you enjoyed it. I'll probably go back to animation overall soon enough, just give it time :P
also i didn't bother trying to compress this whatsoever. it's just generally a small file size i guess. D:
I really liked this, I've always wanted to do something like this. .I liked the little variations and how it wasn't boring like some of the other animations like this I see. In all fairness, I can't fault it. It's a good animation and I'm gonna fave this. .
Question: Did you use a graphic tablet? ^_^
Thanks! Yeah I got a tablet a while back... still getting used to it... but this is the 1st flash (I think) that Ive used it all the way through... (I cant remember its been a while since I've submitted anything to newgrounds) But thank you for your review!
Just sorta happeneed.
There was nothing in it really. Just some random Naruto characters that kinda look like sprites. . They sorta did stuff with sound sound effects then it just ended. It's nothing I haven't seen many times in this and other flash portals in the past, and not very interesting too ):.
I liked the easter egg :D
It has potential to be something, I just think you'd need to spend more time on actually making a fight scene and maybe something leading up to it as well. . The addition of music can always bring up an atmosphere along with voice acting too.
Wasn't all bad, but you got some way to go.
Thanks for the tips. I'll be sure to include it in the second and third part.
