"Nah, I don't really respond to "critics". "

That made me laugh. I cant remember who, but somebody wrote a massive review pointing out all the good and bad things about it, forming a well balanced argument, then finished saying "But I know you wont respond to this review anyway, so Im not really sure why I wrote it."

"that guy, Synj" That cracked me up for sure.

P.S. Tommy Fulp, if you really want to interview someone, interview DrunkMagiKoopa. He has about 30 movies uploaded to NG, many of which have been unfairly whistled or blammed, he's a good animator, all of his movies are actually original and artistic. I think realistically he's probably on the list of top 50 flash artists of all time. He has AIM too, you can contact him that way.

That is true, although if you have a good knowledge of Flash, you can see things from a different perspective, like how easy something is to make or whatever.... people who don't make Flash still have an equal opinion

Anyways, this interview with IWP doesn't affect my stance on his work at all, so I'll save a few paragraphs of bitching and moaning by stopping here.

Well said Commie! I agree with you on that. Although some people may believe that illwill is the greatest thing since sliced bread, some of us beg to differ. However I feel that these people who don't even make flash have less of a right to tell people what is easy and what is hard than the ones of us who do make flash.

oh man, an interview of drunkmagickoopa, or whatever his name is now... that would be awesome...
that guy synj... wow, synj is 50 billion times more talented than he'll ever be...

yet... I still stand behind my opinion that I did indeed enjoy illwill's earlier movies, cemetary flakes, the bath one... stuff like that, again I say: shut foamy up

The ironic thing is that all Foamy does is rant.

"I attended art school for 4 years and had all those pre-developed drawing techniques ripped out of my head and learned how to draw the right way."

That's rather sad considering all he does is poorly draw a backround and straighten the hell out of it, then throw in a squirrel he drew with a mouse.

"Nah, I don't really respond to "critics". Be them professional or NG users, I find most critics like to berate work because of bitterness derived from their own lack of talent and/or success."

Or maybe it's the fact that he managed to get the success minus the talent.

"Well, first, NG has an exceeding amount of talented people, unfortunately these talents are unfocused and tend to be negative. There are great exceptions like "Bitey Of BrackenWood" and the films that guy, Synj puts out, but all in all, most people would rather do spoofs instead of developing original ideas. Don't get me wrong, some of the spoofs are extremely well animated, and clever, but what's the point of wasted wit and skills on something a giant company can sue you for doing? Makes no sense."

Yeah, because parodies aren't what boosted Newgrounds popularity back in the day, right? You would know, you're clearly concerned about Newgrounds, which is why you made it a haven for prepubescent twelve year olds who love you're shitty movies and start clubs against good ones right?

That interview is depressing.

I would give the argument that he is not "very skilled and talented" because there is a fine line between artistic talent and integrity and knowing how to market to a mass audience.

I would also like to mention that illwill attacked the art of parody. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but parody was the very foundation of Newgrounds Flash back in the early days and still is a strong form of artistic satire. Tom himself has parodied how many things now? And has almost been sued how many times now? Illwill attacks that very principle of artistic parody even when he himself stooped as low to do a hackneyed parody of The Matrix...and he'll be the first one to admit that.

The fact is, I see no creative force driving the Neurotically Yours series. Any attempt at humor is unimaginative and falls short of the bar. All it is to me is one man who feels that he's been dealt a bad hand in life and takes on the task of personifying his bitterness through the means of a motion tween cartoon squirrel.

we just happened posted after you, and all of a sudden you think you "called it," even though there are plenty of IWP hating posts before your original post.

i give your post a 5 out of 10, much like 85% of your reviews.

I could've sworn a year ago you were much more eloquent. I don't like having to decode your posts, so please try to type with better grammar if you're going to do it so fucking much.

Wow i typed my password wrong and it deleated my ENORMOUS POST!!!! Well let's ee if i can do it again.

ILL will press basicly uses newgrounds reviews to cheer him up from his awful un-popular life. He has since engineered his flash to get people to pat him on the back for next to no work (he uses static backgrounds that DONT CHANGE ONCE in the movie.. he doesnt change camera angles, and there's no FBF).

ALso, i'd like to point out that this continuous compliment to him has made his artwork settle into a recess.. that is to say, that his art is NO LONGER evolving nor advancing in complexity nor creativity. The first foamy looks exactly the same as the new foamys... dont you think that his drawings would get better over the years?! I think for an artist, this is the weakest and most sad thing that can happen to you. To sell yourself short because people compliment you.

I think foamy is extreamly simple and undetailed and that's why i hate it. What kind of artistic imagination is at work where a squrrel bitches about fat people?! Have you no freash ideas?!

I'm pretty sure IWP spends more time & cares more about his jokes & his script for his movies than the quality of said movies. True, the graphics aren't much, but the jokes & that are what keep bringing me back to watch it.

I believe that the ends(Laughter & comedy) justify the means(basic movie quality) in his case.

Well, that's my 2 cents.

I think IWP's graphics are the main asset towards his Flash, it is not at all funny or witty for that matter, the only laugh I get is from how the New Yorkers say "coffee".
I can't remember who it was, but they wrote a review with 6 steps to making an Foamy flash.... that was funny :D
