i'm the white dragon now.

thanks for all the liking of the concept of this flash.

the woman involved is no longer who she once was.

Better Than Expected

I wasn't a fan of the music; I would've gone with a softer track, personally. The story and animation more than made up for it, though. Nice job.

I don't know.

I really don't want to bash this, because it's obvious that you worked hard on it. Maybe I'm just not into the dramatic style, but the use of a suicidal effort for the sake of "love" is a stretch for characters that we're not invested in. And I think that is the problem, there is no emotional investment. If we don't know what the dragon's life is worth, how can we appreciate his sacrifice? I know this was made in a short time frame, but some character building would really do wonders for the story. Obviously, however, tons of people loved it, so keep it up.

Horsenwelles responds:

generally i would agree, but this is a flash meant to be a loveletter. not a 2 hour progressively building film that can flesh out characters. in fact, what more could you want to know about these dragons? they are strange conceptual characters that simply want to be with one another, not fleshed out Shakespearean characters.

i dont mind the bashing, but it was sort of lacking context...

Great simple concept and you ran with it well. animation was pretty good. I felt it could have been a little smoother when the fire first engulfed them but besides from that it flowed well. good camera direction throughout and sense of pase. pretty touching tbh. It's good you have a strong love.

Horsenwelles responds:

aww thank you! (the fire was a challenge, but i simplified it)
