A very short toon featuring the voice of Lefthandedsock!

This was sort of an experiment to see how I could develop the simplistic coloring style of my old game, Relive Your Life, to accommodate more complex characters and drawings.

Okay, the characters were fine but simply drawn, the "Derprex" was drawn very nicely and had good colors added, but it was just overly random to me, a T-rex suddenly smacks a guy's door down and is clumsy and has a common unoriginal voice that i've heard somewhere else, that's just not funny, i hope we will see more about this convict victim or prisoner or whatever.

When i heard "derpsaurus" i knew it wouldn't be funny, just "derp" was never funny at all, even when i saw it on Southpark, i mean at least it was original and the humor they used was okay.

The voices ARE good, and so are the sounds added.

it's not a surprise NG gives this a first place.

FrozenFire responds:

The whole point was that he doesn't belong in that environment at all. That's why he's colored differently and is completely out of place. Even his sound effects are the only realistic sounding ones.

The other characters fit the style, he doesn't. :)

It wasn't bad...but the difference between the animation and coloring of the people and background compared to the dinosaur took away a bit. Also, the flapping jaw of the dinosaur didn't match what he was saying when he was sayign it very well.

Kinda funny -and better than anything I could freaking do- but if you want to make this a series,I'd recommend put a little more work into those 2 parts -especially if they're going to be this short.

well boy that honestly wasn't funny... i'm not even sure i can comment with "it was well made", but if it was, i think i'd have to rate it even less for trying so hard to go in the wrong direction.

what i can say is that at its core, you have a character that inhabits the word "derp". one that nobody but little kids and my little pony fans use with any bit of sincerity. not to mention a character that is simply mistakenly doing things isn't exactly interesting or new in any way. the entire use of an escape convict was pretty empty and irrelevant, though i guess it was used as a "plot device" to clumsily introduce the clumsy character.

as for what it did ok: the animation was decent. there was a written joke. the delivery was decent, and not very contrived.

thats about it. you really need to work on writing a more interesting character in a more interesting situation. i mean, i think the animation is perfectly suited for a silly webshow (since its not aiming for avant garde or any sort of visual masterpiece status), and you could definitely work out some interesting jokes. i just do not find anything interesting about a character that is literally a re-skin of "derpy hooves" or whatever the horse is called.

in fact the more i write, the more its blatantly obvious to me that the one major problem is simply the character decision. why did you make it about this character at all? its simply an empty character with nothing going for him but the size and the clumsy nature, and even that isn't very interesting since we have seen this kind of character before.

FrozenFire responds:

Awww I'm sorry you feel that way bud.

Honestly though you only get a small taste of Rex. You can't really conclude you know everything about him just yet. We have over 12 episodes written already :)

Also you keep bringing up ponies but I have no idea what you're talking about.
