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.

Incredible

That 3 minutes or so made my day. The animation is fluid and just about flawless, even what little is tweening there is is just about seemless. I can't figure out for shit how you manage to do those speedy lanscape scenes. Characters are simplistic, but the amount of detail and beauty is just plain ridiculous. The only complaint, while it's mad-cool to learn a little about Bitey's story, the cutoff seemed way too soon. But from the file size, I can understand why, I ended up doing the same thing with my last submission. Keep up the sick work, good to know you're still thinkin' bout Newgrounds.

One of the

Only good things about Newgrounds, no unimaginative jokes or bad drawing. This is the kind of thing that could me made into a lot more than just a flash on a site.

Great addition with the narration...

I think the format of this one was very fitting to the series even though it departs a bit from the dialogue free soundtrack of the previous ones. It's very Lord of the Rings esque in the way it catches people up to Bitey's character and fills in parts previously unknown. It's like Bitey's own Batman Begins hahaha!

Great work, Adam!!!
