Edit:The loading screen takes a few seconds to appear for some reason. Sorry.
Running time: 52 seconds.
A short for the series I make. This was my first time using Flash. This was made about three months ago. I intended to upload it here but problems prevented me to do so until now.

-Thing's I've improved on since this for the next episode-

-The animation has been improved quite a bit.
-Craig is no longer a jpeg and his mouth actually moves.
-The lip syncing has been improved on. A lot.
-The backgrounds are slightly more detailed.
-The writing is better.

This short was made to see if I could use Flash. It was kinda successful so I used it for the next actual episode. All the ones before this were MS Paint ordeals. Example:

I started animating the next episode once this was done and only finished it a week ago. I would have uploaded it already but I'm waiting on a couple friends the deliver a theme song. I hope you'll that but until then, there's this. Anyways, please tell me what you thought about this. Although outdated the information will still help. Oh yeah, I kinda stole Newgrounds preloader. Sorry, I guess.

I see what you're trying to do.

If you make necessary adjustments, I believe that this can very well turn into an enjoyable series, if you put time and effort into it.

Correct me if I'm wrong but am I right in saying that Eddsworld influenced this? Copying Eddsworld is fine as a beginner, but eventually you'll have to form your own style if you want to be a good cartoonist.

and last but not least lose that "awesome smiley" face. I mean this in the nicest way possible, that that face almost always gives away the quality of the flash the viewer is about to be watching.

Good job for a beginner, i wish you luck in your future animations~

I know. As I said in the description this was made 3 months ago. Every since then I've been working on the next one. Also it's worth pointing out this series started out as a MS Paint show. Hence why CRaig is an awesome face. It ws a joke betwen friends that he would just be variations of an awesome face. Obviously, it didn't look good in this, so in the next one he is a fully animated talking square.

Congratulations! Your the first person the compare t to Eddsworld. Unfortunately. It started off as me trying to make my own version of Eddsworld. It's been something I've been trying to run away from ever since. A burden to my creative process.

Thanks for the review! I sure hope you enjoy the next one! Me and my friends have put a lot of time and effort into it! I'm just waiting on a couple o them to deliver a theme song.

I know dude. It was a thing I was doing when I made ms paint episodes of this. I thought I could carry it over but it didin't look good (as you can tell). I fixed it for the next episode that I spent most of the summer working on. (It's 9 minutes long) Thanks for reviewing.
