This collab is the result of a little less than a month of extremely hard work.

I want to thank ReNaeNae now because although I didn't hold the credentials, she still let me hold the collab.

The whole idea behind this was to make a tribute to the original red line collab, but to add the one element missing from that. Quality.

Every art piece in this collab is of great quality. We wanted the best, so we took the best and what is presented is a piece of art that you should enjoy!

This is not...

....the greatest flash in the woooorrrrld, nooooo...
This is just a tribute.
I couldn't remember the greatest flash in the world, but it's certainly not this.

Reeks of mediocrity and unoriginality.

Some art was good, but not all art is of 'great quality'. And to the people below; it's not a good/original concept, it's just a tribute to another flash which was the same except for the line colour.

Overall it's nice and decent, but not really special.

I'm green blind :(

Considering I'm green blind, this was interesting to watch.... everything was grey lol. But I bet it was great for everyone else. Neat!

Good concept

When I first started watching this collab, I thought is was quite lame. It was only after a few images when I began to understand the concept and began to appreciate the thought behind this concept.
Now I think this collab is among the best I have seen here on NG, at least it stands out with this nice idea of the "Green Line" that connects all the images.

As always in a collab, there are some very good and some mediocre additions in here. I guess it's all a matter of taste. Some might think the work I thought was the best addition to be quite bad and vice versa.

However, the average quality of the pictures in this collab is quite high. Especially considering the fact that most pictures only contain the colours green and black. So it's quite amazing to see how much detail some artists managed to put into their work.

Sometimes the "Green Line" didn't work that well with a certain image. It seemed that it had been added after the whole image had been drawn, so the green line seemed kind of "forced" onto the image there.

I thought the animated pieces in between where a good addition and I think there should've been even more animated pieces in this collab.

But I also think you should've allowed the green line not to only go from bottom to top, but also from bottom to right, left to right, left to top, etc.. It makes the whole process of combining these pictures a lot harder, but I think the extra effort pays off in the end.

Great concept, slightly flawed

I can see that this was a really fiddly piece of animation to work with, with so many quality pieces coming in. I would say that there are a few key areas that do need a little work on, to make it just take that final step to where I think it deserves to be:

Some of the stills needed a little touch-up work in flash on the black. I know that this is perhaps a time-consuming part of the creation of this piece, but with the quality of quite a few images compromised by these issues, I feel that you need to take some action to improve on it.

Liquify, in the credits, you should say that this was organised or edited by yourself - authored isn't the word you're looking for here, then you can add the names of contributors to the piece afterwards.

Clearly, it did get some great support in the form of many great pictures, some good ones and a few average ones. I expect to see most of these submitted to the Art Portal, for comment on individually, but overall, there was a good job. I know that editing can be a harsh business, but if you're going to do it, you do need to be harsh and axe some of the less-well accomplished pieces. Sure, help the artists develop and give them encouragement to take part in the next one that you organise. I know I wouldn't make the grade, but that's why I don't even try to look for these works in progress.

The one question I would ask is why do you only have the green lines moving from bottom of screen to top? Why not have them from the sides as well, with some even turning corners? The way that you did that does make some of the pieces seem a little limited, as they have been drawn in green, but it was clear that the green line has been added as an afterthought. As for animated pieces in amongst the stills, it changes the complexion of the piece, so while I'm not totally opposed to them, if you're going to have animation, stick to that, or stills, as both didn't quite seem to mix well.

Good work, I look forward to seeing more for your collective works.
