The 5 Shades of Blue

Share Collapse

This is latest addition to the 5 Shades Collection! This time, the only colors allowed used were 5 specific shades of blue. The flash also had to have a water theme. The included artists are ZekeySpaceyLizard
Big Thanks to RuneAura for whipping up the Author Wheel in the menu.
Please enjoy this collab as we all worked very hard on it. THANKS!

I think this may be my favorite in the whole series! Granted, that's mostly because it has two of my favorite authors working on it! It's Xionico and ZekeySpaceyLizard. Everything flows so well together. I feel like the length of the shorts was great too. It got pretty deep. Well, in every sense of the word.

The only thing I didn't like was how you had to play the scenes. You shouldn't have had to press the play button again. It's still minor and this is a great cartoon. Well cartoons, I guess. I liked the water theme in many of them.

Nice job!

Kudos for Xionic_Demon for that great animation. What can I say? I love anime!


Well, it was pretty good. All of them had a charm of sorts... it sounded like the shark shouted "LOL!" when it attacked in Space Chickens entry, but other than that, I wasn't all that amused.

Still, I have high standards, and some of it wasn't even to be funny, so hey, never mind me =)

Space chicken

I loved Space Chickens animation, very humorous. The others were good too, better collab than green!


i saw gradients and fades (and in some cases, extra colors) used in the videos. that means that more than 5 colors were used!

(if you were to take a screencap of a video during a fade, or select an area of a video
with a gradient, it would contain colors that weren't allowed)

artists who broke the rules:
mynamewontfitin- fading
Greedom- fading + gradients
ZekeySpaceyLizard- fading + gradients + extra colors (the sea- blues and greys)
Space_Chicken- fading + gradients
xionic_demon- fading + gradients + extra color (eye- different blue)
djamin- fading + gradients

kudos to DNR tho... stuck to the rules :P

still gave you 10 stars tho cuz i enjoyed it, but just wanted to point that out
