I got the idea from a a sketch I made. It's about a young child who loves to draw his black and white hero. One night he is drawing sketches, and he falls asleep. As he sleeps his dreams bring his sketches alive in a great adventure...



Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Pretty damn good..

it was a cool story, a little confusing, why the key? why the dog and the attacking birds? either then that, graphics sucked, you could remake it with a little help, and i'd vote 5 all the way!

The keys were like.. the reason for him to have to go to all those wierd places, so they could unlock the giant door.
The dog and the birds were like.. the bad guys.
I agree graphics are my biggest problem as this was my first animation I beleive I will be able to improve my artwork.
thanks for your reveiw!

Well, your graphics, obviously, are the biggest problem. You could remedy that with practice and developing a visual style all your own. But the music was entrancing and it was kind of hypnotic watching the story unfold, even though I had a fair idea where it was going.

howelone responds:

That's a great idea an original visual style would be very interesting!
srroy about late response, I wasn't aware that I could respond until now.. many months later.

Pretty good

It was a nice little imaginative world you crafted for the character. It could really have benefited from some better artwork though.

howelone responds:

Thank you for your reveiw I agree and will work on my drawing!
