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.

Pure Art Once More

As expected, you have made art out of Flash animating. A fantastic beginning to the backstory of Bitey, our favorite jerk of the forest. Lovely animation, fantastic music, great narration and I will eagerly look forward to the next part. Keep up the wonderful job, friend.

Most Sincerely,

I was thinking

How long it had been since a brackenwood flash had come out!

Yay! I'm glad you haven't disappeared. Keep up the great work and wonderful flash animations!

As for this story, I was always curious where Bitey came from, and now I see he is a more tragic character than I had originally thought. This whole world seems real and fleshed out as far as you can go. I ponder what the next one holds...

Wait, there are people who voted less than 10?

With the amount of skill in animation, music, and good narration, how could you not vote 10? Thanks again for showing us the power of flash animation.

You have obtained a level of artistry i can only hope to achieve one day. It is extremely smooth, with a color scheme all its own. And on top of that the animation is amazing. You get my props man that is amazing.
