Short back story: The snowman's child has neglected him, so he takes us on a journey through the last chapter of his memoirs.

Please submit this to the Winter Flash Off.

This is the original ending. I finished a new ending, but every time I tried to export to .swf flash would crash to the desktop. Hopefully I'll be able to release a directors cut with the alternate ending. Please enjoy. This is my first flash submission and my most ambitious flash project to date. I spent about two weeks working on this (excluding breaks) and all of the work was done using the touch pad on my laptop. My kingdom for a stylus.

Enjoy.

*EDIT

Well, I appreciate all of the people who checked this out before the close of the Winter Flash Off. However, I am upset that it was not recommended for the collection. Come on, guys and dolls. It's wintery. In any case. Thanks for watching, and once again, I appreciate that you took the time to check it out. Perhaps I'll have better luck with the next contest. Plus, I am almost done with my music video for Sky Eats Airplane, so keep an eye out for that. Much love.

Well made

This turned out really good, you should definitely keep animating.

Amazing

Although the mood is pretty depressing and negative for the holidays, it's a pretty good flash. I especially like the music choice, fits well. The colors for the snowman was nice too, instead of pure white; it kept my eyes on him. Good job.


CyanideBreathmint responds:

Well thank you. I wanted to steer away from the generic "happy" holiday flashes and bring something different to the table.

touching

A very touching flash which shows how people's mind easily changes and the feeling of being abandoned is very well shown here. Only complaint is the animation looks a bit raw, a bit of 'polishing' will solve this. And a snowman that can smoke menthol cigs? Cool but SO unrealistic.Lol


CyanideBreathmint responds:

A living snowman is also unrealistic, but I think one smoking menthol cigarettes to keep cool is more believable than a regular cigarette. Thanks for the review. I'll work on polishing, I just need more free time.

Awesome!

That was excellent! I really enjoyed it. It was so sad though.
The animation was pretty good and the story was really gloomy and I wasn't expecting it to be. Also, the ending was really unexpected as well. Overall, excellent job!


CyanideBreathmint responds:

I'm glad I could drum on the ol' heartstrings. The other ending (presuming I can get it to load) is happier. Thanks for the review.

Good Show

I couldn't take the first part seriously, menthols isn't the most bad ass cig but i get what your saying by it works with the snowman. Good choice in music


CyanideBreathmint responds:

There was a time when you could smoke in bars and diners, while listening to "Tracks and Lines" by Eric Clapton. Sadly, no more.

Thanks
