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.

Finally, an actual story to go along with this fantastic series.

thanks for noticing! part of me just wanted to show everyone the potential of Brackenwood and while the use of narration is getting mixed reviews, I'm happy with it as a kind of new beginning for the series. Not to say all episodes will be narrated of course.. just to say that there's more to this world than a nasty little bastard playing pranks until the end of his life :)

Perfection as always

I am so glad you decided to continue to do this series and I REALLY look forward to the release of the feature film... This particular episode did take a new turn by having a narrator and having actually explained some background info, but I think it was definitely for the better...

100/10 is what I'm rating this :)

once again...

You've proven yourself as one of most favorite flash artists, however your new graphics style seems very risky, careful how you use it, for it can lower the quality of your flash animation if over used.

That water...
