Keep trying!

This is definitely a good attempt at a flash cartoon, but it lacks continuity. I'm just as big a fan of stick-animation fight scenes as the next guy, and would love to see you perfect your work. The fight is disjointed, with hard to follow action and close ups that seem out-of-place. Also, the lengthy bios for each 'character' appear on the screen for less than a second, then vanish.

Yeah Unfortunately After Rewatching I Realised That My SWF File Was The OLD One So I'll Re-Upload It Anyways. I Forgot About Changing Speed Of FPS After The Convertion To AS2 (Preloader Issues)

In progress

Hey look, another stick movie.

That aside, there are some obvious problems around. For one, the text flies by at an incredible speed - I was lucky to pick up 3 lines, much less anything important. Also, there were instances where stickmen would fade or become transparent, and so much radical scene transition and perspective changes that, beyond the fact that sticks were punching one another, it was almost impossible to make out what was going on.

If you go through with your series, I'd focus just as much on plot as stickmen fights, since there're already so many of those.

Oh c'mon

A stickman film shouldn' be so hard to make. Your presentation style is rather weak with a lot of text just flashing on the screen for an extremely short period of time. I also found the scene sequences to be generally very confusing. My main point is the continuity, you should be able to see the transitions from one scene to another. I wasn't able to do so in this case.

The other major complaint is the art style. Stick figures are basically the most basic form of a character. I respect that not everyone is an artist (hell I'm not one myself) but give it a bit more time, make the lines smoother, try making longer, more continuous pieces of animation so that the appeal goes up.

Sorry for the critique but it wasn't a particularly good piece of animation. O bet you can do better than this!

Actually The Lack Of Smoothing Was Purposely Done As It Gives A Unique Tone And Odd Look.
And Yeah, This IS My Second Animation With Flash Ever And It's Kinda Harder Than The Programs I'm Used To. I'm Really Used To Animating With This Particular Layering Style At Such FPS. It's Much Harder Than My WMM And Pivot Videos For YouTube. But Either Way A Little Of This Was A Little Criticism With No Pluses. I Asked For Constructive Criticism But Thanks Anyways :D
