Hey what's Monster Mashing doing up there! Seriously I had no idea that it even had a chance of making Top 5 of the month, so man this is wild. It wasn't too long ago when the closest I got to top 5 was when I was runner up at 25th place with Rebident Ebil: The Game. Just y'all wait until I actually release the good game I've been working on HEHEHEH

Thanks for voting, and congrats to all the other winners and runner ups! Go watch Captain Tardigrade again!

Just wanted to say that I really can't thank everyone enough for the response we received for Keev! I never expected this film that I was so hesitant to share for years would make it into the top films for the month, let alone in 4th place. It's incredible!

Maybe this could go without saying, but I'll be definitely making an effort to post more stuff on NG again. The thoughtful and productive responses I received for this film are already enough of a reason for me to keep sending in stuff. It feels like I learned more about becoming a better animator and artist after I read a lot of your reviews, and I think that's something to be treasured.

Anyway, thanks again!!

That's awesome to hear. :) Happy you did decide to submit that work anyway despite such profound hesitation! It really was great.

That Captain Tardigrade screen looks like it's straight from a 90's anime.

Both of them look awesome and will cause you to have a flashback. That is what you cause retro done correctly. I would enjoy enjoy seeing more of them next month.

For sure! If just one animation like this one came out each year I'd be happy too. :) It really was a work of mastery. Not just with the nostalgia, but incredible fluidity; detail. Not often something so flawless streams into the Portal...

I totally agree with you. How could we figure out a way to make more flashback animations? Real quality animations that just back you back to in retro fashion.

If you are going to make one, let me know. We could try pitching ideas back and forth.

Well time's a lacking for any projects of such immense scale, but if you're ever up for it I might have some ideas too. XD Guess we'd have the idea phase all mapped out fast! Though seems it's that one phase most projects get stuck on...

Mapping out an idea can be tricky. Actually doing it ends up be much easier.
