I was unaware of the pronunciation required in writing...
Anyway, I haven't looked over many others' lists, but here's mine in somewhat chaotic order (implying that two next to each other might not be in order, but the first one is definitely higher on my list than the last one).
Pro: One of the most professional styles of art we have on this site. His artwork is smooth, well synced up to the music, and well written. It's flash like these that NG was created to host.
Con: He's only come out with two shorts; it would be nice to see more or even a series that connects the individual shorts besides having the same main character. Although I do like the open nature of his films; I guess my only complaint is that I want more. Is that really a complaint?
Pro: Very funny artist who uses icons of our childhood to create a sense of comfort and desire to see his work. His writing is witty and he definitely has a style that can imitated but never duplicated.
Con: Sometimes it seems like he chooses quantity over quality and will rush a project to make it good when it could be great. The artwork is wonderful but could be more refined; the script is funny but could use more of that LF wit we all know and love. Kind of the opposite of Adam Phillips-- instead of taking as much time as he can on one and making it the best he can, he will release three or four good but slightly decreased in quality flashes.
Pro: One of the funniest satirists we have at this site. The way he takes someone else's style and throws it back at their face with a spoof is incomparable. He shows great talent... which actually leads us to his Con list.
Con: His great talent is overshadowed by his ability to spoof. I would love to see some great animations that are purely his; I know they can be amazing, but he doesn't put the effort into it like I would hope to see.
Pro: He clearly has a style that cannot be duplicated, and he has created one of the most recognizable characters on the site. He has a lot of good press as well as bad press, but that only increases his name's recognition. His writing is funny and witty, although at times it can seem somewhat redundant. His flash talent along with his writing have made him the center of many love/hate debates, with followers of both sides. It must feel good to have that much emotion poured towards one, even if it's not always good.
Con: While his writing is always new and fresh, his animations (especially the Foamy rants) get a bit repetitive. They are all funny in their own right, but don't try and watch them together-- Foamy can get annoying after a while, and seeing the same thing over and over again even if it's saying something different might be mind numbing. While I understand that Foamy is a great character, more animations need to do less with Foamy and more with branching out into the world he has created.
Pro: Can anyone else say they have created some of the most anticipated games on the site this year? His Frank's Adventure games along with Castle Cat have been fan favorites and created more anticipation than Episode III is garnering. His artwork and style are very distinct, yet he can create very different styles of games. His versatility keep him at the top of his game because nothing gets tired and overdone.
Con: He is most definitely a 1st half 2004 artist... I haven't seen much from him lately and he may have faded in the minds of the general public. Newer members probably have never seen a flash by him. His Frank's Adventure games seemed to promise so much, and the third one delivered less than the hype. Some of his smaller games are very quick and not too difficult to play; on the other hand, he does have a lot on his plate and he needs to choose his priorities.
Well, that's my 2 cents. I hope it helps some (I just hope it wasn't a waste of time) :)
