NOTE : TO VIEW THE CLAN BIO'S PROPERLY, YOU NEED TO WAIT FOR THE WHOLE FILE TO LOAD!

Ok, to all you people complaining that I've been ripping off Brom. I emailed him saying that I didn't intend it that way. This was his response:

Hey Simon,

Your animation was brought to my attention the other day, it was a well
done
bit.

I think the best way to avoid trouble is to just state right up front that
the work is a tribute - then you can avoid all the negative comments.

You are obviously very talented so make sure you keep at it.

Best of luck with your work,

-brom

> Hi,

> I'm the author of the animation called 'Clans at War' which is at
Newgrounds. I've taken it down because of complaints from other net user's
who've said it looks too similar to your work. I admit that the artwork
does look very similar. I used your work as guides for mine. I never intended to cause all the fuss I seem to have done. If there are any question's you'd like to ask me go right ahead.

So, you can quit with the flaming. All this commotion has sort of made me go sour on this series. I might go back to it and redo the art but instead I've decided to start working on a whole new series. Don't worry. I wont be using anybody's art as 'guides' in this one. It'll be all me. I think I've learnt my lesson from this. Meanwhile I'll post up a part of what I'd finished. It's not much different to what I origionally put up though. So, look at this as a tribute to Brom's art! go see his stuff at www.bromart.com

The Clan Bio's in this version aren't completed. Only the Black Bear's Bio is partially done. When I feel like going back to this series I'll finish it all and upload the rest of the stuff I did.
Enjoy!

How can anyone give a valid comment on a trailer!

Okay, I was reading some reviews and they were saying how good the story was. How can they tell if the story is good from what is currently being shown!?

The graphics are nice (excellent colouring, I love it!), but I don't like the setting. The animation is lacking (although you promise more in the finished version, it looks like you'll have to completely rethink your angle on animation). I didn't hear sound as this com has none so I can't comment on that.

I hope you come off with something great but I think it lacks appeal. Something is missing, but I don't know what. It just doesn't... grab me.

what is this bush league psych out shit?

ok, intro? too long.and what's up with the elric insinuation? him, the black sword and a white wolf? i'm sorry but there's just no room in the world for repeated ideas, especially when the copy is so god damned ridiculous that it makes me want to vomit due to lack of originality. what's next? a strange tale of an Englishman's infant son raised by apes in the jungles of africa? or a barbarian named conan who battles primitive injustice? here's a hint, #1 don't think your little flash piece means you're creator in any means. #2 don't fool yourself into believing that you have any talent what so ever


StenFLASH responds:

For fuck's sake. How many times do I have to say this. He's not Elric. You haven't seen the full version yet so don't start thinking they're one and the same. You haven't even seen his name yet.
Like i've also said before - all the good thing's have been done already so it's inevitable that similarities show in everyone's work. I've read countless book's where there's a main character with a wolf friend (my fave being Robin Hobb's - The Farseer Trilogy).
1> I am a creator. I've seen nothing of your's. You're one of these people who tear down other's because you can't do shit yourself.
2> I am talented whether you like it or not.
3> How can you think a long intro is a bad thing? just how fucked in the head are you? I mean, it wasn't even that long anyway!
4> When they find a cure for stupidity I'll be sure to let you know.

Very promising.

The artistic element is excellent, very atmospheric and detailed backgrounds and characters. Unfortunately there's not much animation as of yet, hopefully this will be improved in the final version.
No plot whatsoever (yet), again I hope to see more plot in the final version.
The music is only okay, the sound effects (especially the wolf howl) add to the mood, though.
Very promising, I'll be interested to see how this series progresses.
