I can't believe I made this; I sucked so much. There's no words to describe how much I am ashamed. Whatever. Review away, I don't care anymore. On second thought, don't.

- EDIT, October 3rd 2005 -
Before reviewing, keep in mind that this movie was submitted over a year ago. Read existing reviews to find answers to whatever questions you might have, or comments that already have been said.
This is a short movie introducing my spritecomic, Black Legends. I was originally planning to put it only on my site, but why not on Newgrounds too? Be sure to check out the extra art I made after seeing the movie.

I had complaints about the song cutting out too soon. I'll try to fix that eventually.

Movie stats:
About 1340 frames, 24 FPS

not bad

but if it's called black legends then where the black.The stickman did'int count

Well,this is okay.

I really can't find the point and some of he sprites had white lines around them.It really isn't good,but it can be better!=)


for what you wanted to achieve you did it pretty well in this intro but to me that isn't very interesting. the animation wasn't much but it got the job done. the drawings were better than the sprites in my opinion.

Preternatural responds:

Hmm... Thanks, I guess?
You know, I realize this is kind of a newbish animation, I am perfectly aware of it. I had just gotten Flash, experimented a little with it and tried making my first "movie". This was inspired by my sprite comic, which is now discontinued.

Read the soccerlord8's review and my response to know a bit more about ... well, stuff (including my next big release, guarrentied 3.5 and higher).

Reviews coming in bunches!

Here is another one for your liking. But it's a bad review...because even if you "drew" your own awesomeness sprite cartoons...they still look like poop. And I had to stop watching after that knight sprite slashed that wolf sprite. The slash was a red diagonal line. Ohh, amazing artistry sir. Keep it up!

Preternatural responds:

Gee, thank you for pointing that out a year too late.

I look back at this animation now and realize it was pretty basic. It was my first animation ever. Dumb excuse, I know, but it's kind of good, considering all the "First Flash Ever" crap that doesn't get past the Portal.

Oh, I know you. You're the creator of that hateful anti-sprite movie. Replying to my review wasn't enough, you still felt down and knew that I was right all along, so now you're reviewing my oldest movie and pointing out that I sucked back then, how mature! Well, tough shit, your best argument has been invalidated.

I believe you were mocking pixel art (in a sarcastic way), stating that animating with sprites was incredibly and simple and that drawing a sprite is easy. Guess what? It isn't. I'd like to see you try, actually.

I've improved a lot over a single year, and I'm going to prove you were all time wrong with the release of my next movie, quite possibly in October.

that was cool

I liked it bunch, it was cool, nice animations and sprites, it shoulda made the front page ^^

Preternatural responds:

Hmm? A new review? I hadn't had one since... almost a year, I think. ;)

Now that I look back at this animation, I think to myself: "Damn, did I suck back then or what?!" I'm glad you liked it, but at the time of its completion, I was aiming for a mere daily 5th place award; but one of these days, I'm definitely going to get my hands on some awards, dattebayo!
