hi, i'm Daniel, and i have a show reel for you today. this nitpicked pile of mostly unfinished or unused animation, along with many completed portions of work i have made over the years, are assembled before you today, so that you may gander at my talents, if you see fit to allow me such a title as "talented".

any input will be greatly appreciated :D

Continuing the streak of 7's...

It's not a bad reel.
The animation was well done, and the art was ok (some parts were much more detailed than others). Of course, this is a demo reel, so I won't take points off for it being unfinished.

Thanks to the other reviews, I'm sure you're aware that the main problem with this is that it's out of context, but I think it's worth repeating. Also, using lip-synced animations without fitting audio doesn't really show much of your talent.

Overall, this was a good demo of what you can do with flash, but it would be nice to understand what's happening.

Horsenwelles responds:

its meant to show my lip syncing talents as well as fluent animation. and thanks for the tips

Please don't give up

Some viewers will watch this and truly appreciate it. You have some excellent ideas and concepts and you've shown that you can somewhat develop these fluently, even if your animation style could be perceived as "sketchy" to some who compare this to other animators located on the site. However you get past that simple flaw by understanding the importance of showcasing colorful environments and fluent animation.

One of the main reasons I love this is because of it's below-average style of animation. People often criticize works of Flash because of animation styles, and you've demonstrated (to me, at least) that it's really the devotion of creating something surprisingly intriguing without having to work for Disney.

Overall, this demo reel shows that you have the ability and you understand the necessities of animation; you just need to complete them, hahaha. Cheers mate.

Horsenwelles responds:

simply the most heartfelt and honestly comforting review that i really respect as a person, an animator, and a bag of salt (?). i cant express my thanks enough for this brilliant tower of text :')

Nice reel

A pretty good reel. But the problem is that most of this is out of context and without voice acting. I understand that those are unfinished or unused animations, so of course they look a bit... well, unfinished. ^^

But it would still be great to see some background information on the things you present here. Maybe you could add a menu where the viewer can select the different flash snippets and you can write down some background information on what the viewer is about to see.

Horsenwelles responds:

the ones with VA are mostly finished segments (words of wisdom: Jman, and QOTSA can both be found finished in my flash page), and it includes more collaboration bits.

and yeah, i could definitely tell viewers where the snippets came from, but it would make the flash seem a bit too long/cumbersome for a simple show reel with some of my better clips from 2009-now.

idk, man.

anyway, thanks for 7 #6!!!
