Good first flash.
This was drawn very well, it had a nice anime feeling to it. The only big problem was you animation. it seemed like you went frame-by frame, erasing lines as you go, which left a bunch of black line bits in the mix. I think once you get animation down a bit more you will go far. Nice job.
woot for amelie! great music usually makes a good flash much better. but the one thing i found was lacking in your flash (and possibly the most important thing you should know about flash) was your mis-use of motion tweens, or rather, the absence of motion tweens (and shape tweens) it makes the production of an animation go alot faster and feel alot smoother. and also, i thought that you might not have even used layers... but i soon realised that i wasn't paying enough attention on my second look.
other than that, some audio other than music would be nice, or some backround noises (like people or birds to have a soothing feeling)
enough with the bad things! this flash was great, and shows promis for you in the future (although i hate to have more competition... its hard enough already to get a known name here on NG)
An excellent entry for a first animation! Good job. Hey, that guy looks like Crowley...
it was pretty good for a first movie, but you said you had to teach yourself a lot.... maybe you should have a look at some of the tutorials that are on here.
Great job on your first movie, I am glad to see a new and aspiring artisit on newgrounds. Good luck in the future.
