Update : Wow, first page after less than a day, and daily third. Just to answer a few questions in advance, yes, I'll make more, and no, I didn't steal the idea of a 'Die-ry' from Johnny the Homocidal Maniac. I've never read any, and came up with the idea completely on my own.

Original Comments:

I'd always wanted to make a serious flash series, and this is the first episode. It came out better than I expected, made the front page of ABS, so I decided to submit it here as well. Take a look, tell me if you like it. I might make more.

Not much more to say, really... Graphics drawn by hand (using a mouse) in Flash 5, voiceover recorded on a plain old computer mic, music cropped and eq'd in Accoustica. Includes clips from songs by David Bowie, Haujobb, and the Electric Hellfire Club.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

That was lovely :)

I think this would make an excellent series for you to keep up. Interesting, and rather simple. Oh yeah, and oozing with flavor ;)

I have a question though: How did you get the pencil lines to look as they do? As first I thought it was a line tool I havn't used, but I checked and that's not it. So now I'm thinking it's some sort of masking effect. In any case, it's an brilliant way to keep the mood of writing in a "die-ry".

Easy. I used the diagonal paintbrush tool, and made the fill a sort of blurred-out bitmap of real pencil, then layer masked the hell out of it.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

I like spikes too.

All I have to say is that I loved how it all drew out as you were explaining it, I imagine that took some work. The music would have been better if it didnt loop so much.


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


funny and slick. i found this very entertaining. great choice of music by the way - subtle, but fits it perfectly. this flash has an amazing sense of style, and has the artistic support to make it work. this is so much funnier than all of those retarded game parodies everyone makes that aren't..funny at all. love to see people with artistic style! good work.

People find this review helpful!

Thanks - I feel kind of bad, because each of the three songs I put in there were really good, but due to filesize and time issues, I couldn't use more than about a ten second loop of each. Oh well.


Rated 5 / 5 stars


that was pretty killer. i thought it was quiet funny the idea of the whole die-ary, well i hope your flash contuines to last.
