A lot of you have asked wether the fight scene was traced or not? Some have been as bold as to say it was. As an animator, those words are very flatering. Because if you have ppl saying these things than you've accomplished what you set out to do. Anywhoo, here's a tip when it comes to animating. You can get extremely smooth animation if you first start out with stick figures. That's how the fight scene was choreographed. Second, I may be a newbie at Flash but not with various 3D programs. ie Poser, 3dMAX, Bryce, and Maya. The fight scene was animated in Poser 5. Contact me if you'd like a tutorial. Genryus Blade got the same thing from ppl. Some accused Nelson Hurst of tracing, blah, blah, blah. I believe Nelson used a similar method to mine. In fact, it was from him that I learned to first choreograph fight scenes using stick figures. Keep the kind words coming friends. Also removed Dojo BG music. Hopefully this fixes the lipsync issue

Nice concept, and pretty cool graphics too...

...but the sound really blew. :( 'Saright really, tho, since I can't do very well with sound myself (and if my animation ever by some fluke came off as smoothly as yours, I'd probably pee myself, lol). Although most of it was quite nice, I couldn't help being put off by the differences in sound quality. I know this is tricky, but it can be overcome much more easily by doing all of your sound bytes in one session.

Anyway, all the rest was great. Although you tell people time and again it's all completely hand-done, it's pretty obvious that you employed rotoscoping, at least for the fight scenes. If you hadn't your mouth movements would have been much more fluid. Because compared to the rest of the aspects of the flash, the fighting movements were incredibly well-done. Usually that sort of thing isn't higher in quality than the easier parts. ^_~ But like I said, pretty cool overall.

Very creative

Dude good job, i love your work. its pretty sweet. the martial arts in it was pretty cool. the only problem was the buzzing sound when you play the movie but other than that i think this a great flash. the style is very good and i think you should keep on making other flashes like these

It was an awesome movie

When the characters talked it kind of hurt my ears, but it was a cool movie anyways.


(ok dont think im retarded by the weeee thing) its just what i say for an awesome film


i have never seen a flash so spectacular, well episode 2 was better... GREAT JOB!
