Yup. He's right, it was a good start, but I dont think u should have rated it so low. I could notice more pros than the ones you described. Here's my list of Pros and Cons:


- Good animation, actually from Swat stuffs that I found around here, the better one;
- If this was your first try ever on this, very good work, with storyline and stuff;
- Besides good animation, also it was very enjoyable to watch.


- Bad graphics. I know that it was you first try ever, but the graphics really werent promising, tough that even with the bad graphics, it was very enjoyable to watch due the animation;
- A lot of people (personally me) don't understand quite a much from Spanish, so next time make it English;
- Try to next time make the weapons graphics a little bit more realistic;
- Make it with human characters, not sticks. In my opinion sticks fails a SWAT animation;
- Also, next time, dont put this kind of back-ground music. When things are calm, without suspects near, but at the sametime tense, put a calm, but at sametime, dramatic music in back-ground. When things are really hectic, with lot of action, put a very noisly music, with action touch.

I see a very promising future on you, so please, keep your animations up, always try to improve, and dont give up from Ep. 2. And here's a tip for the back-ground musics: Get the ones from SWAT 4, they would let the animation more catching, and keep our atentation at it, in my opinion, music is one of the most important things on an animation, but u gotta know which music or tone to use on an animation on each moment. Search a lot for tones and musics on the internet, and you'll see how you'll get better reviews of people, because the choose of music's really important for the flash, so keep it up.

a Good start

This is one of those rare flashes that come along that i see promise for, sure it may not be the best looking or the most fluid, however for a first try this is quite the suprise, and I look forward to seeing how your skills evolve over the next few years. DOnt let this possibly getting blammed hold you down, you show alot of promise.

Pros: The animation was Well done, as was the art style, There is room for improvement of course but with a bit more practice i have no doubt your animations will be something enjoyable down the line

Cons: Text placement is the one thing i think you can fix immediatly, on occasion you placed black text on Black/Dark Grey backgrounds and made it very hard to read, either change the text color or pay attention to its positioning next time. Also though the animation was very fluid, it was also very slow, speed up the frame rate next time, and keep the length of words to a minimum, Stick figures dont talk much, thats the great thing about using them as a medium, sure you can have them talk alot, but anything longer then one sentence of about 6-8 words is over doing it, you did a good job of conveying the story via the animation, which is what animations are suppose to be about, you didnt need as much text (on a side note, my spanish is very rusty at best, and i still enjoyed this animation some what, and saw alot of promise)

Look forward to seeing more from you in the future!

Thanks I really appreciate your notes.
BTW: this was an old animation I did months ago, I actually change the frames now to 24 fps :)
