Rare

Ya know I've been on Newgrounds for about maybe 7 or 8 years now... and i gotta say it's getting harder and harder to find action flashes like this every once and a while, and i fu*king love fighting/action flashes with great music like this one.

when i watch things like this it reminds me of stuff like street fighter or old kickass animes like ninja scroll for some reason :3. Some of this flash has stuff from your old work which is why the Frame rate is a little awkward but who gives a shit it's watchable isn't it?

The art style you have is really good, and i guess your shit just keeps getting better and better every flash you make. and i don't know what the fuck everyone keeps says about the music you chose.

Anyone who says the music gets repetitive is a fucking moron, the vocals and the beats are what gives this demo the true Afro/Jazz feel to it (With a little bit of drum and bass thrown in for good measure ; ] ) I ADORE your work man. keep making more flash for those of us who still understand the action around here at NG. Peace.

I just made a news post about how action flashes are missing from NG, this is indeed the hayday of stick comedy, I'm glad to hear somebody feels the same way I do about it. And yes, old ass muscle anime like Street Fighter 2V and Ninja Scroll probably turned me into an animator in the first place, I got exposed to alot of it as a kid =). Thanks alot for the kind words

Amazing work!

Nice one. The loader image is very nice and the fight at the end just puts it all together. Though I noticed the drawing style was changing with each scene, but I'm assuming it means those are different episodes. Was also rather jerky but I could still see what was going on.
Good work, looking forward to the final work.

well what to say

I just want to say that your work shows an immense ammount of talent, but the quality of the animation shifts heavily from scene to scene. At some points it's extremely good and at others it's just average (of course when compared to the "average" newgrounder it was all phenominal). The frames were a bit awkward at several points, which really took away from the flow of it. At other times the anatomy was a little off, or undefined. Normally this wouldn't be a huge problem, but since your overall drawing skills are of a higher quality than most, any real drop in that quality seems more noticable. Your background skills are great, but it would have been nice to see more of them.

Another thing I noticed was that your faces felt a bit awkward during close up shots, although that wasn't as pronounced in that last fight scene. In fact everything about that last scene was great, so I'm guessing it was your most recent work. The lack of a plot did hurt the animation, since the rapid shift in the tone, pace and quality made it hard to appreciate the work as a whole. Of course that's the nature of a demo real, but I'm just trying to speculate as to why you didn't get something closer to a 4.5. I honestly think the music choice was pretty bad, since it made the camera feel even more jerky and made me think my computer was broken for a minute. The biggest think I think you could improve would be your frame pacing and your faces. Also your muscle detail felt a little flat, but your anatomical outlining was great. I also think a lot of the animation could have been cut out, since some of it really only brought down the rest. Sorry to go on so long, just little observations. anyway, great job and good luck. 5/5 9/10

Hahaha yeah, I know, there's alot of my old work sprinkled in there because I wasn't too productive last year, so some stuff isn't the real deal. As for the timing and frames, I suspect it has something to do with the way I converted the cartoons to video. MagicSwf2Avi is what I used to use, it flawlessly turns flash to crispy video, but this time I just recorded the screen with Camtasia, resulting in some shitty playback. But you are quite observant, thanks for the good review, I will keep the advice in mind =)
