My first flash on newgrounds. I've made better but they are all too big. I hope you enjoy.



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Very unique idea

This is an amazing flash, done with a very creative concept. That music is very familliar, isn't it used in "the elder scrolls IV Oblivion"? Anyway, very nice and I hope to see more :)

It's ok

There is some decent animation, and some of the scenes look kinda cool, but it isn't all done particularly well; in several places the tweens didn't fit together properly, or just looked cheap, and in some places teh graphics didnt fit together either- there were gaps on and around the stage that shouldn't have been there. Make sure all background graphics overlap teh stage at least slightly, otherwise you get gaps around the edges in Flash Player, which I think can really spoil the easthetics of a flash.

Also, you should have used some alpha gradients on the sun to make a corona effect- if you did do any of the graphics in photoshop it was unnecissary- you can do all that stuff in Flash. Try playing with the colour mixer.

I don't know why all your other movies would be too big- overuse of bitmaps? unoptimised sound? you can compress both on the publish settings in Flash... but try to minimise the amount of bitmaps you use. Bitmaps are good if masked onto stuff as textures, but they shouldn't be used as main graphics excessively.

Keep practicing, your future looks bright!

Loved the music from oblivion

Was a nice little feel-good animation, good luck in passing judgement!

Nice try.

I liked the legend stuff and it's been a long time since i've seen a movie that soft and touching. Anyway, you can improve it a lot.

Very subtle

This was good for a first try, but you really should submit that other stuff. Chances are it was too big because the sounds were not streamed.

I think the clouds should move slower, you should stream the sound, get rid of that crappy quality on the sun, better clouds, and make it more clear to the audience whats going on, and perhaps even personalize the sun more with more human features (like eyes).

nice try though!

I liked the story, very original. However, you did not give credit to the music from Elder Scrolls, Oblivion.

I enjoyed the storyline, but the animation was bad. If this doesnt make it i'll try and animate it for you. AIM me at Nzxer. Hope it makes it!

Constructive criticism

Hey, Just to let you know: Before you finish the flash, before you complete the project, make sure you check your spelling :)

Entertaining flash.

Well notbad this ws interesting it was decent for your first, but could use some fixing up, some of the text, and some extra stuff is needed maybe abit od effects something that shows abit more effort, anyways nice job, but think about the suggestions on this.

Needs work, but its a nice start.
