For those of you who have never been, this is EXACTLY what going to therapy is like... every time.

UPDATE 3: Front page! Special thanks to the crew and everyone at NG.

UPDATE 2: Daily 3rd! Awesomeness. Thanks to everyone on NG.

UPDATE 1: The easteregg has been fixed... in the sense that I moved it to the credits page, so now you can find it there if you are looking.

Hey everyone, hope you enjoy our latest Sketched submission, a lot of hard work went into this one so let us know what you think.

p.s. Easter egg?! Yep! It's nothing really mind blowing, moreso a reason for me to practice some more of my action scripting, but its there none the less.

Till next time, Enjoy.

Sometimes a shrubbery is just a shrubbery.

Methinks the dude protests too much. XD.
Hi-friekin larious as always.
So I've deconstructed the humor spectrum of 'Sketched'
4 parts enunciation
2 parts searching for the right word/hesitancy in speaking
3 parts chunky drawings
2 parts lip synch
2 parts punny associations between art and dialogue (although not as much in this one!)
3 parts hilarious animation interlude

16 parts. I'm not sure what parts are, exactly, but I have a compulsion to add things up and 16 is a pretty damn good number anyway, as numbers go. Mmmmm, 16.....

16 parts is always better than 15 parts I always say... which really didn't make much sense up until now. Thanks for your review I'm glad you enjoyed the short.

Blind Therapist Indeed. I don't really know what to say after watching that then reading your beefy response to The-Angry-Haruist. it was funny when they trapped him in the room and would'nt let him out. Hello? Gameshows over.... let me out...

sirjeffofshort responds:

The Angry Haruist and I have already talked it out and it's all good now. Thanks for your review.

I'm am just 17 years old...

And my point is that I could have taken a pyschology course at college, but did not. Yet I honestly feel I don't need to know that much about pyschology to have a fair idea of how the human mind works, and human studies keep me up to date with the human pysche.

I think the storyline of this flash was engineered towards the average Newgrounds viewer, for the gay joke is quite obvious and I believe mass consortiums of people to tend to prefer things of a more literal nature.

I personally enjoyed this, for it is a good friday morning viewing (UK) and for me depicts the over-bloated confidence therapists (mental therapists) get from having learned the human mind out of a textbook. Of course, I have nothing against pyschologists, but I have enough experience with them to know that a lot of their investigation techniques are presumptions, presumptions which where someone else's presumptions - noted down in a textbook some time ago.

I actually think you get the scenario spot on, for even the receptionists tend to have a flutter of knowledge aout such things at the very least, and she of course was assured of his gayness herself.

You also completely get the reality of the professional world. That is to say once you leave education (in the western world), you will find that it is possible to be quite loose and unprofessional in your job. If you work dilligently in your early years then years of freedom and ease will be found in later life.

For a flash that is moderately amusing, of so-so animation, immpressively satirical and makes a point, I give you an 8/10 4/5.

It seems to me that many of the people belittling your animation seem to be watching it with the intention of not wanting to laugh straight from the start due to it covering the topic of Therapy. I thought it was clever, with great voice acting and animation. The timing and script are what really made me laugh. Good job, can't wait for the next one.

sirjeffofshort responds:

You can never really avoid the inevitability that someone eventually will not enjoy your work, for whatever their reasons may be. My constant hope is usually that they will honestly appraise their feelings and try to convey them in a helpful way. Barring that I try to remain level headed and take what I can out of their reviews. That way many people have actually come back and enjoyed future animations more.

Thanks for your review, I'm really happy that you enjoyed the short.
