This isn't your typical submission here, so if you come here for an animation with lots of explosions, fighting, ranchy humour, parody/ satire do not waste your time watching this, and don't comment about how I wasted your time. And if you don't like it don't tell me or give me constructive critism. Thanks!

Sorry, needed to get that out of the way. About the animation:

The animation is a little over a minute long animated at a frame rate of 15 frames per second. I've also submitted this to deviantart.

The story is about a little boy that gets an ear ache and starts crying loudly. He's taken to the doctor where he's given drops and a teddy bear. The story was based on my brother, but no he never had a bear stuffed in his mouth to shut him up.

I spent maybe 60 hours on this. And I think it is at least better quality than the first animation I submitted here. I was experimenting with the use of painted backgrounds rather than backgrounds drawn in flash and I think I liked the effect.

I used marcomedia flash mx 2004, Photoshop CS, and Corel painter IX to make this.

Thanks for viewing.

Very cute! :D

Ya know, the boy kinda reminds me of Wolfram from Kyou Kara Maou.

You couldn't have picked a less interesting story, but you implemented it alright.

dancer4ever responds:


Personally I don't have a problem with simple every day sort of stories. I think that if the story is simple it makes it all the more difficult to implement is sucessfully.

Good job

I like this one a lot. Its one of the best non-dialoge flash on newgrounds;
those are usually a bunch of shit that took a few minutes to make. Your hard work really shows, I like the graphics. Keep it up.

Was a cute idea, great animation. Just the menu that popped up confused the issue. Took away from the toon.

I dont know what you were trying to say or do with it. You needed to clarify if it was an animator working on a project or it was the child changing his mood or what not.

Could have been a 4/5 only a 3/5 for me because of the menu thing.

Sometimes simplier is better.

Get too fancy and it takes away from the over all toon.

I did see all the hard work you put into it.

dancer4ever responds:

Yeah, the menu was because I as an animator didn't want to have to listen to a recording of myself or a kid screaming over and over and over and over again while I was testing out my animation. Really didn't have any other reason for being there, though I think it would be nice if you could mute kids crying/ screaming.

Thanks for the feedback!

Great flash flic of germans being shot

It's entirely what it must have been like, I can't believe you weren't actually there.

dancer4ever responds:

Huh? You mix up your windows of what you were reviewing? Cause this didn't have any germans being shot. Not even something close.
