I am basicaly saying thankyou to mindchamber and tom because they showed me what job i want in the future. Thankyou Tom Fulp and MindChamber for everything you did and please check out my site :P

Not that this is a requisite, but I find it funny for someone who claims to be such a devout fan, You've never reviewed any of my flashes, or have any of my flashes as your favs, or even have me on your authors list., or even joined the forum.

I think your just trying to be silly, and spam the page in hopes of hits for your site.
Which I happened to take a look at, btw.. You ripped off Brackenwood. right down to the color scheme. Be more original, you'll get more respect.

Uhm the guy who made Brackenwood said it was ok, this is his review:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

hey man, blackenwood isn't brackenwood so you don't need my permission :D

Also, I'm sure if you sat with a pencil in your hand for a while and thought about characters in your head, you'd come up with your own character. All it takes is a bit of focus, so give it a shot.

If you use a character that has been invented already, you are denying yourself the credit you deserve for inventing your very own characters/worlds.

I think you'll find that if you come up with something completely original, it's much more rewarding :)

Well, the new archive is a great addition and I see no reason for it to bring displeasure to anyone.

Jose - I definitely prefer your bots to the older ones having seen your side-by-side pics in the other thread.

P-Bot's picture is a lot more dynamic now, with a better angle used in the picture and I prefer your bolder highlights. I looks kind of shinier and as a product, more 'metallic' I think. There's a lot more detail and whereas the older ones looked reminiscent of something I could draw myself in half an hour, your pictures are very impressive, specially when seen at the small-ish sizes they normally are.

That out of the way, here's my in-depth analysis based on nothing at all other than my own opinion. Maybe I'm wrong in some instances, but these are my thoughts.

P-Bot: The feet look slightly wrong, I feel. The back foot looks like only the edge is on the ground, and so the bottom bit of the shoe (you know, the grip part) should maybe slope up a bit more at the edge. Meanwhile, the front foot looks like the grip part is totally smooth. Some of the corrugated grip should show.

It could have a bit more to do with Flash than it currently does. Maybe using the .swf icon starburst-type effect inside the gun would be a nice feature?

The shading is nice all-round and I really like your highlights, specially on the blue lamps, but some parts still look slightly flat, specially the yellow area to our left of his body.

The blue fuel connection pipe to the gun thing is a nice detail and I really like the way you've drawn his right hand.

I'm not too keen on his eyes. Whilst I understand they need to curve that way to follow the curve of his head, the angle they form makes him look a bit scared or worried. Not confident in the way I feel he should be.

A-Bot: I like the idea of him doing something musical - clicking his fingers. However, when seen at a lower size - as when seen on the portal itself - it looks as if he's holding a small yellow man.

Maybe consider making the robot's joints a different colour to distinguish the 'sound effects' you've drawn? Maybe take away the little mark to the upper-right of the 'note'? If you're using a note you need it to be more recogniseable, so maybe increase the width of the stem and decrease the height of the tail, making the tail taper off?

I really like the volume display bit on the bot. Really.

I'm not a fan of the colours used in the centre of the speakers.

I do like the fact that you've kept the colour scheme sort of the same for both robots, with a blue highlight and yellow bits and just changing the main body colour, but wonder about how the G-bot will fit in, when the only primaries left out of both subtractive and additive are cyan and magenta. Maybe reversing it, and simply using blue for the body and then another colour as the highlight? As it's in a different category (i.e. not a portal) it seems almost fitting to change the scheme for it.

Great work overall and though I don't know if you're willing to spend any more time on it, they definitely have the potential to please more people and to please other people more.

Wow thanks for that indepth review.
I totally agree with alot of the details you mentioned.
As for P-Bot having to do more with flash, he does have the flash Icon on his chest. tho it may be harder to see on the small portal version.

I'll definately go back and tweak some of the art when I have the time.
thanks for taking the time to help out, by writing this critique.

Im sick of being called ugly and being hated by other people because i have a big nose, im sick of being an idiot, and im sick of freaking my heroes out because i want to be their friends. So yeh, this could happen when im 18 or 20 i dont know because i wont kill myself by hanging myself.... to messy and i bet it hurts. The main reason im looking forward to suicide is that i cant get any hot girls to like me cause they say im ugly.... well before the bang i will post something on the forums and on my site. I dont know y im telling u people this but MEH

what good is an autograph if you're gonna kill yourself?

Besides according to this review you left, you already killed yourself a couple of months ago

So what your saying is that to be a TRUE NG fan i have to kill myself? Well in that case watch the CTV Afternoon news and you get to see me dead! Goodbye Tom Fulp i hope you will like me after i do this. I also want to thank you Jack for telling me this, also i will do this on
Oct 15 2004. I live in British Colombia Canada

I have but one suggestion.

To go along with the new "front page archive" I think it would be a great idea to add a "front page award" to all submissions posted to the front page.

Just a suggestion...

much love,

Dude, you better be fucking kidding.

Ending your life becuase 2 "hot" most likley shallow girls "turn you down because of your face" is the most idiotic, and immature I've seen in a long time.

Rethink the situation, give it some time and you'll have nothing but thoughts of "what the fuck was i thinking?"

All of that went right over my head, so i'm gonna let my younger brother respond to it, he understood all of it, and hes the artist drawnin G-bot

Srg. Chum respones with this:
I totally agree with your explantion on the Bots. For G-bot I was also thinking of having a blue body scheme but with a darker tone. I think the blue should almost be balck the bring out the yellow bits and compliment the highlights which i think should be red. I'm currently working on a rough skecht now with no color

Glad it was of help and my time spent appreciated.

I had a look through the Cafepress bit to see the larger images, so I did see the flash logo fairly clearly. But that's still only one reference, which to my mind could still use improvement.

Checking quickly, it can be made out at the size its used at on the portal, though it may not be apparent in just a quick glimpse, in the way the speakers are on A-bot.

Hey shithead, come down. People have posted who G-bot is, you should be msture enough to read some of the thread before using caps.
G-bot is the forums bot. He posted the rules. Got it?
