*Update* its been brought to my attention that one of the authors ripped shit from another artist.. i must have been on crack or didnt notice it until it was pointed out to me ... its been removed as its a utterly disappointing technique and that 'artist' if you even want to call him that is not worthy of being amongst people who actually put in the time to do the art.
sorry for the inconvenience and enjoy.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

Another good one

Well those were all animated in their own original way.
My favorite was Luis' which not only showed the rivalship between pirates and ninjas but also showed a rival ship between cats and dogs.
Squeezy's was my least favorite but it was still okay.
Good job overall by all of you.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


A great continuation of the Time Trial series! Seems like when the pressure really gets heavy, then a lot of good stuff really gets done! The concepts are creative, the graphics are both detailed and simple and the music flows in nicely, keep up the great work with it!



Rated 3 / 5 stars


Ah, the old internet classic - Pirates and Ninjas. Who can go wrong with either? Let's find out!

Luis' Entry

Great music, great animation, great graphics and of course a good little story too. Was interesting to see the Pirates themselves get ripped off. Niceentry

Mcbean's Entry

Ah, the old Pirates Vs Ninjas debacle. Well we can clearly see who you think is the better out of the two, but I don't think this debate will ever reach a sound answer. Still a good enry, with some nice animation throughtout. Liked the link at the end that took you to a fishing website. Hehe.

Sqeezy's Entry

Another random music entry from you. Doesn't show a great deal of thought in regard to the entry. Yes it contained Pirates and the song was all about Pirates, but there was no kind of story or anything to it, the music video style entry just seems to be taking the easy way out. Shame, as that music was awesome too!

Openwound's Entry

OK, this just seems unfinished. It's only around 20 seconds long, which is a shame as the animation and graphics were looking strong and it just seems to end. There is no kind of stand out moment to this.

Hmm... overall I'm only a little impressed by these entries. the overall bias slant towards Pirates is a little disconcerting, especially cos Ninjas are just as awesome. Thought this may have been one of the stronger Time Trial entries...

I liked Luis' one best.

They all had good graphics, but Openwounds were definately the best. Pretty realistic in all of them but the last battle one was slightly crude and let the other ones down.

They were all pretty much the same story and were all good with the exception of Openwounds piece. Nothing happened in that one which is why the style rating is only 9. Luis' one is the most inventive by using animals instead of people.

Not much to say here, the were all good. Sqeezys was the best because it made me laugh and the spanish one fitted in well with Luis' piece.

Only Luis' and Mcbeans ones contained violence and Mcbeans contained violence. It wasn't much to my liking but it gets a ten because there was loads of and it was very detailed.

Nothing much to say here, the only times I clicked were to see the films.

None of them were funny except for Sqeezys song. It made me laugh a bit but not much, hence the low rating.

A good piece of collab, each was good in its own way. I didn't like it enough to add it to my favourites but I'll remember it for a while unlike some stuff that somehow manages to pass judgement. The only reason you lost one point is because I love cats and Luis killed a bunch of them.
