Pencilmation #5: To Beard or Not to Beard.

Hooray for being on the front page! Personally, this isn't my favorite Pencilmation, but that's just me. I've been trying to do a new one every two weeks, and I do feel like my style is improving. Well, at least I hope my style is improving...

A few things I am considering for the future:
-Background music that is not techno
-Including images the hand along with the pencil and having more interaction at that level
-Creating a more realistic pencil line (may involve using a program other than Flash)

Anyway, just a couple of ideas I'm kicking around....

Yet another Pencilmation from the strange mind of Ross Bollinger.... find the rest of his cartoons along with his blog at

Perfect - just perfect!

Cutesy animation, that worked supremely within its own stylistic world.

Funny, imaginitive, and decent production values.

I shall check out your other work.

Suggestions for the next installment: Use a 2B :P lol

Pencilmation = Great Show!

After seeing the forth installment of your series I just had to go back and check out the rest. I must say, your animations are quite imaginative, often very amusing as well as very entertaining.

This short is no exception. Excellent work! +1 to Favorites

I look forward to your future projects.

Pretty good

I loved it when he turned fat from the burger. But the animation was a bit short, and I felt it lacked a bit. Oh, and if you buy a new macbook, can you send me the one you found in the dumps? Cheers

Not your best

I seriously loved pencilmation1 and 2, but i think the quality of your vids has been lowering. There were some funny parts, but not to Lol.
Seriously, you could do better.
