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.

that was a great half a movie. but when it says you will find out right now what it means is you will find out later, not today even.

Generic much?

I absolutely loved the original, and I had looked forward to this episode.

But honestly, is this it?

I loved the free direction of the first, and the raw portrayal of the wonderful fantasy world, and couldn't to see more, but this Chosen-One/Lone-Warrior fantasy crap you suddenly pull out, just completely smashed every aspect of originality and stand-out performance from the original flash.

Sure your drawings are still pretty, you do got a certain talent for animation, and for that i applaud you.

But the whole fantasy story-line thing just completely ruins the protagonist's charm, and all that was so hypnotic about the first one. Now you've made this series: Generic-Fantasy-#Bazillion-onNewgroun ds.flw+1

I'll rate 5, because I can't argue with the audio and animation being above average, although I still think the animation doesn't look quite finished, as opposed to the first. I do think however that the flash itself is extremely vague.

"Chosen-One/Lone-Warrior fantasy crap"? You totally pulled that bullshit right out of your arse.
You know nothing about the plot.. nobody does yet. Previous episodes were told without back story and without character depth/development, so you can't tell me that this has ruined anything but your own shallow expectations.

I have been grateful for low-scoring critical reviews before now. I can appreciate any honest critical review and take it all on board, but I have absolutely no respect for a stupid and pointless review like yours.

It looks like the chiron thing from the lightning theif movie.. or is it grover?

Good. But not the best cheese

Sorry but I dont understand. Why did u make this animation at a lower level to your previous? No.. im not saying it is bad, in fact its extremely well animated. But in comparison to your previous bitey of brackenwood animations, this ones animation is less than your average. did u have a less frame rate or something like that? or did u just get a tad lazy because u know people will like it anyway? i liked it, but there were a few dodgy parts.

I felt like I was watching the discovery channel. Why the fuck did you make it a documentary? I liked the other ones better :(.
