The neighbor acts very suspicious regarding secret legal troubles.

Thanks for daily third and front page. Ah ha! Finally done. BIG ol' thanks to Woozle who did a large chunk of the lip sync... that's why he is co-authored. He will probably be part of my future productions as well. Please vote and enjoy.

Nice

Hah! I knew you were an Ed Atlin fan, just by your style of animation and humor.

I preferred your old style.

As said above, I preferred the style of your previous episodes. In the episodes prior to this one, there was a lot more fbf whereas in this one, actual animating was lacking (comparitively).

I'd also highly recommend that you move away from the 'One man stands on scene and another walks up an initiates conversation' premise. These guys don't just stand around. Where's the furniture in their house!? I'd also take the 'action' outside and into different areas - at the moment, it feels as though you're simply reusing the same lip-sync mouths, character animations and bg wihout actually creating anything new or specific for this piece. Of course, I'm sure you did work hard on this, but I'd like to see it being more apparent.

The sound was crystal clear - as usual. No gripes there.

Play and replay button - don't need anything else, so you get an interactive 10.

I'm not laughing when I watch these. Humour's hard to do, huh.

If I were you, I'd take a break from duck luck for a while - work on some completely different projects and experiment further with animation. I think that this will help you breath life into a project which initially seemed promising, but appears to be delivering the same package time and time again. I mean...We've had seven episodes now without any significant character development or story!

You can (and will) do better.

3/5

Yeah, I prefer my old style too. Lot's of people don't though. Actually, say out of 10 people that have given me feedback from episodes #4 - #7, you'd be the only one who prefers FBF.

I think that until the viewer is competent in FBF, they prefer to watch tweening. It's just the way it is, unless the FBF is really really good, they just don't notice.

Anyway, I really see the honesty in your review and agree with everything you say. Although, basically when writing a series though I admit I lack plot/development of characters, it's good to end up where you started. This one happens to be a two parter, because next episode everybody will have to run away from the neighbor or something because he's a murderer.

ANYWAY! I am starting a new mini-series,
Woozle and I merged, and since he is producing a somewhat lengthly cartoon, I have to keep myself busy until it is done (so that he can help me out with DL8, because neither of us can double project).

Anyway, I respect you and appreciate your qual. review.

LOL, what are an idiot?

I'd have to say the best part about the series is that its always somewhat the same premise (not saying nothing new, its just very... um well you know, crap forgot the word... I hate it when I forget a word... now I'm rambling on...) but each episode gets better, so its worth watching a new episode. I'm guessing it'll get a collection page from tom pretty soon. Good job.

great

You've got a good series here, keep at it.
I've probably pointed this out before, but I can tell by watching this that it is very space tree inspired.
Your first favorite author: Ed Atlin.
I am a genius.

Ha, but nice job, the animation is very nice, good fbf, relatively nice lip syncing.
Keep it up.


Snubby responds:

Yup! Go to my website and check out my About page, I talk about it there a bit. Thanks mate for the kind words.

Random Humor

Well, it's random, but sometimes it seems a bit forced. Still, it's got somefunny parts. Mostly the guy in the dress had all the funny lines.

I also noticed that you hands are backwards at times. That odd dude's hand on the far side, his palm faced the camera, but his thumb was on the wrong side. Nota biggie, just something I noticed.

I've seen a few of these and this one is a decent addition. Not hilarious, but funny and the graphics are very smooth with good animation. Nicely done overall.
