That was beautiful as not much else is.
Thank you, NewEvolution!
You had me at hello. You had me at hello.
That was just too good for this page. (Not sayigng that newgrounds isn't good, just that 99.9999999999999% of submissions are waaay below the quality of this peice.)
Now that's some crazy high praise! :D
Are there even enough submissions to make that a viable percentage?
Wow, I'm so happy to read this review! It's not very easy to get a smile on my face but you've done it my friend.
Like other reviewers have said: what a rare treat.
And it's true. Newgounds is known for its somewhat violent and controversial side, but every once in a while you get something beautiful and simple like this. The music was an amazing choice. The simple rotating graphics were so soothing and set the mood perfectly.
I really enjoyed it. It's been so long since I've seen a flash that relaxed and touched my like this one. Even the credits had a tone of sincerity and grace in them.
I wont bother trying to interpret it. Like any good song or poem, the individual perceptions can be endless.
Anyway, your work enchanted me so much that you got my top vote for the February Cash Prize. I wish you the best of luck.
Thank you so much!
I'm in the middle of looking at the Feburary submissions myself... BOO for 56k! >:(
I have to agree that individual perceptions are varied for everything, and that is what makes art personal and unique. But I still like to hear what my cartoons mean to anyone who is willing to share.
Thanks for reviewing!
Before I say anything, I want to mention what this felt like to me personally, because it's ever so rare that a Newgrounds Flash cartoon connects to me like this. Also, for the creator, and other people my opinion about what I feel is soley to me and is not necessarily what the cartoon is "supposed" to mean. What I felt was the glimpse of meaning that life has while you're living that is so worth it, but so small and silent. Kind of like living, having moments then dying and never being able to recall it again. Evolution gave me the idea that our form of life having love for things can give it meaning but life isn't continuous unless that you think that it is continuous by passing ideas on and changing things. The dandylion seeds was a very good thing to reflect evolution for reasons that are all too obvious.
Anyways, the cartoon was very different in the fact that it was very quiet! I dont see that this much. And the music went very well. Never got annoying or anything. Graphics were excellent, flawless. Everything was presented very well.
Well, anyways...I added this toon to my favs. I suggest checking this out.
Thank you so much! Your analysis of this flash was wonderfully thoughtful and articulate, not to mention spot on to what I was thinking of.
Of course I would still love to hear all other opinions on what it could mean to anyone else. :D
