Just wanted show your guys what I'm currently working on. I'll get more into the story in the first episode. The short series, is not based on that Hiven preview animation, it's quite different from it.

beautiful sound, graphics, everything, I espeacily (how do i spell this) liked the music

awesome, need i say more

yes i need say more! i love the story line, and the artwork is superb. and i don't know if this will be in the actual series but i love the way you put captions underneath instead of adding voices, which, in many movies i've seen, the voices end up monotonal and emotionless, but hey, theres always a chance you could be different.

keep going, you definately have potential for a very awesome and addicting series ^_^


Despite people's complaints of it being a trailer and not a flash cartoon is dissapointing. Though to review a trailer you have to lower your standards because it won't be as great as the final version. It was short, but the author chose it to be that way. It would of been nice if it were more like fallen angel, but whatever.
Music fits with the mood perfectly.
Graphics were almost perfect, but the animation wit his feet walking could have been better.
Style was very unique in visuals, but that's about it. There isn't that much happening here to make the story seem intriguing, but al least it looks good. Very clever use of shadow and light, also the refelection of the monster in the man's eye was very cool too.
Violence was sparse and consisted of a blood spray.
For a trailer it made me interested into what it was all about and for a trailer, that's what they are suppose to do. Though it was short, I think it was done intentionally to not reviel too much of the plot, so I understand.

Yeah, I totally agree with u, that maybe I should have made the trailer a bit longer, thanx for the comment, I hope you will hang around till the first episode


The trailer, was as a trailer usually is, short, too short to be rated amongst the elite flashes of course, this and because there didn't seem to be an explanation of what this Hiven character was, we are led to believe Vampire, but that's too simple.
The background song was a good choice, but the animation, esp. of the person walking seemed ... "choppy". Work on it and send it in to NG so we can review the final work!

Kinda cool.

Even though it was short, for 2 reasons I can't say it sucked:
1. It didn't
2. I animate somewhat like that, too.

So, in other words, it was cool, but of course it was more like a teaser and just makes you thirsty for more. Can't wait for the full version!

thanx man, even though u gave me an overall 6, well I hope you will hang around till the first episode
