Blockhead, Episode 7: Imagination

Blockhead would never tell a lie, but the Conscience is skeptical.

Note: The "Courtroom Intro" for this episode was voted for by the memebers of the forums at TheSwain.com.
Note 2: Thanks for front page, Tom, my precious!


Maybe next time, fat man!

I'm amazed that you got this out so soon after Time Squad! I thought the breaking the fourth wall part was pretty funny. I have a question though: Any possibility of you making a game featuring Blockhead? Or just movies?

Would an idiot throw rocks at birds?

AWESOME!! I couldn't stop laughing... Blockheads my new imaginary friend. Keep em coming.

Congrats, you made it above the 4.24 mark.

I, along with many other NG users have been awaiting this Flash very much, and I am pleased that you released it in a rather short time.

Graphics - The drawings were very good, and the FBF animation was better than all of your other Blockhead flashes, and that includes Time Squad.

Style - Blockhead is yours, and in my opinion, he is a very original character.

Sound - There wasn't much music, and the voices were top-notch quality. For that I give you my 8.

Violence - The evil duck deserved it.

Interactivity - There was a Preloader and a play button, along with a link to your site and a replay button.

Humor - "Hissssss!"

Overall - 9
I hope this gets submitted to the Blockhead collection as soon as possible.

The-Swain responds:

Haha, and a mere few seconds after your review, it did get submitted to the collection. Good call.

This was certainly my most lax cartoon to date. The creation process took the same number of days as eposides 4-6, and yet I didn't have to pull a single all-nighter. Perhaps slaving over Time Squad taught me something? I hope it paid off.

And thanks for the play-by-play. Compliments are always awesome, but reviews like these are the ones I really enjoy reading. I don't always know which facets of my cartoons are most appreciated by viewers, so it's great to sometimes be reminded.



Good work.

Your humor is.....amazing.
Probably the best one yet.

My question is:
How long does it take you to do the frame by frame work like when Blockhead sits down and dances and things? How long does that take you?


The-Swain responds:

It probably took me an hour to do the entire dancing sequence and the sitting/moving combined. Maybe an hour and a half if you include formatting and lip-synching while he was jumping about. I've been doing that kind of FBF for a while, but what makes it look good this time (in my opinion) is that I've finally learned how to standardize my lines and my style. Blockhead doesn't change shapes mid-animation anymore, and his outlines don't go from thin to thick, clean to messy, like they used to. Or at least not as much. (For an example, watch Blockhead in Ep.1 when he says "Make it work, please!". Not only does he jump to the end of the animation with no frames between, but he's not even the same shape or height.)

It's just cleaner because I've found my "zone". I love the "zone".
