who the hell understands this crap?

i find your flashes boring, overrated and you just try to hard. they don't make any fucking sense and i don't know why other people seem to think this crap is "beautiful" or some shit like that. it's boring and pointless.


BlackmarketKraig responds:

Everyone has their own opinion and I can't fault you for disliking my flash. Hell, I think they're overrated myself. But honestly, you could try using a little delicacy in your reviews. Artists spend weeks and months working on these things, and the fact that you berate nearly everything you review as "crap" without any helpful comment is demeaning.

Thanks for reviewing.

It was O.K.

Meh I don't really like serious films but as far as this one goes. Its pretty good. Besides the artistic work.


BlackmarketKraig responds:

Thanks. I'm happy to get praise, especially in hearing that it was a type of flash that you wouldn't normally enjoy.

yes

you make nice movies.

Oh, and you are getting my traffic because you posted that little note on the front page. So it was kinda like a self fulfilling prophecy... or something.


BlackmarketKraig responds:

Hmmm... I didn't think anyone read those little posts. :P Maybe I should put one up every day during a peak hour... nah...

Anyway thanks for the great review. :)

You don't own me! I do what I want, when I want, who I want! :)

Well, actually I'm working on some stuff now, but I've had a few weeks of non-productivity due to some... uh... personal stuff. ^_^

Thanks for reviewing and giving me a 10!!!

Lovely

The opening was beautiful and the dandelion seeds are all wonderfully drawn.

The way in which the text disappears works well in mirroring the dandelion seeds and keeping to the mood.

Graphics are very simple, but each stroke, each fade, each motion tween seems well considered.

Though the story was simple and rather slow, there was a nice sense of timing and a fair bit of visual interest throughout. The feathers during the transformation, the sparkes on the tear...

Furthermore, it seems to be open to so much interpretation. Personally, I see it as as metaphor for death.

The title seems a little obscure.

The font used is great and goes well with the general tone of the piece.

Lovely music.

Really, really lovely.


BlackmarketKraig responds:

First of all, I really appricaiate thoughtful, considerate reviews such as this.

Now, Mr. Bezman, I just have to say that getting the title text to blow away like that and for me to feel satisfied with the way it looked, took me longer than any other other part of the animation.

Although you seem comfortable with the way the piece unfolded, pacing is the single most commonly pointed out shortcoming of all of my flash submissions to Newgrounds so far. I'm not very good at changing my habits, so it's unlikely that I will be submitting any whiz-bang storytelling in the near future.

It's my opinion that all things are open to individual interpretation, as everyone views the world in a different way, and though many things beat you over the head with whatever the creator wishes you the hear/see/think/feel, I'm more interested gentle nudging. ^_^

I'm done rambling...

Thanks for reviewing and for the great score! :D
