This is the story of the last of the dashkin. The people are all gone and in a world of innocent animals, the solitude, the sadness and bitterness have corrupted his view of life. What does the future hold for such a tragic creature? Will he wander the planet, forever alone until his death? Will he always be the wild King of Brackenwood?

It's a massive honour to be nominated for a 2nd Tank Award, thanks NG! Thank you for front page, all the great reviews and the incredible score for Daily Feature.

Thanks to Brackenwood fans and donors for all the support not only during the 4 weeks I spent making this, but also in the 2 years since I submitted Waterlollies.

Since then I've been working on the Brackenwood feature film outline with my good friend Ryan O'Loughlin. With no plans for a new web episode in the meantime it occurred to me that Brackenwood fans could be waiting years for the feature. I didn't want to abandon them altogether, so this new movie is my way of staying in touch with them and the NG audience.

This is the first Brackenwood short to break away from the "character introduction" style movies that had little or no character motivation and plot. This is a story, not only answering a lot of questions, but asking just as many new ones.

I used Flash CS3, the .fla is over 300MB (half of that is audio) and it took me 4 weeks.
Don't worry I won't be leaving it another 2 years. I plan on starting storyboards on the conclusion in jan-feb 2010.

You never fail at making a good cartoon

Just like the previous, this fantastic, colourful, imaginative animation proves again why Adam Phillips is one of the most skilfull animators on newgrounds. Like Waterlollies, this is worthy of a place in the top 100, finished story or not. I want to see what happens next. 10/10.

Perhaps Prophetically

I haven't even watched it yet, but I'm clicking the 10 stars quite confidently...

Yeah, I was right, 10 stars.
I seriously can't wait for the next!

Great, however...

I prefer you unspoken stories cause they were full of mysteries and provided a time for reflection unalloyed by any influences or context.

This story would be better without narration cause in my opinion only short written information at the beginning of the story covering main details about Dashkin together with your excellent animation and music that are telling more than any words are sufficient to constitute a masterpiece.

I gave you 10/10 cause in spite of this deficiency you managed to create great work presenting interesting story with beautiful graphics, animation and well selected music background.
