Update- 8th on P-Bot's Daily Picks 01/05/13 and Front Page in Popular for the same week. Thanks everyone!
I finally finished my University Final Project, and here it is.
It's my first finished animation and hopefully through watching it you can see how much I progressed from start to finish. It's not the longest piece in the world, but I wanted it to be fully shaded with as much fbf as I felt I could do in around 5-6 weeks alongside my other work.
Why did I make this?
This animation is a project that directly relates to my dissertation about intertextuality in Video Game Parody. Without boring you, it's about how video game parody is only relatable and fully understandable by someone that has actually played the game.
I chose Heavy Rain as it seems to have almost no Flash-related content online. Little did I know that I would have to choose about 5 out of the 30000 problems and plotholes that are in that game.
This is my first submission, and as my university course has come to a close, hopefully with practice I will get better and you can expect some art and more cartoons over the summer. GOTTAGITGUDATFLASH
Why does the ending make no sense to me?
If you have never played Heavy Rain before I can see why you may not understand the ending of the animation... and good, you've proved my dissertation correct. To put it simply, there are two shower scenes in Heavy Rain; one in Act 1 with Ethan Mars, the dead-behind-the-eyes creepy-smiling divorce dad and another in Act 2 with Madison, a journalist that's character has received a lot of online attention for being quite hot. The main character chooses the wrong shower scene... hence the ending
