Badly Drawn Stickman

Author Comments

It's meant to show the evolution in artistic ability. It was meant to be about badly drawn stickmen coming to life and coming into trouble due to how badly drawn they are. Then an improvement in artistic ability allows them to get further in life.

I totally accept that my own artistic ability at the time didn't allow me to fully express myself and I'll return to this in however many years when I'm good enough to show the story I had in my head.

The first stick-man isn't properly connected, so he falls apart. The 2nd can't stand, due to his wobbly legs. The 3rd seems to be Ok... but what's this! He has no eyes! So he bumps into the tree.

Then, some girls were going to laugh at him and other stuff would have happened, but I got dispirited after showing off this 'work in progress' and it didn't seem worth continuing.

its not bad

its actually a good stickman


But is too short!

Nice animation

This was a nice little animation, it would be much better with some music in the backround and possibly some color and effects, but other then that it was a nice little animation

Add some music and some color or even colored backrounds

A short animation, nice flow of animation.

I made it to the sound of 'Ballet Lane', but at the time was worried that Underworld would get annoyed if I used their music.

I realise now I needn't have worried.

Let me tell you straight ..

Man... You got big mistake at the end was nothing .. i just watch that tree ! Just 5 from me :P:P:P

Bezman responds:

Yeah - it was unfinished. Where that guy disappears is pretty much where I realised I wasn't expressing myself properly.


what the heck was that all about?seriously?just make it violent or something.i was to bored to watch the whole thing i closed the window at the tree part. i am not trying to be mean but COME ON =)

Bezman responds:

It saddens me if violence is seen as a necessity.
