Nice sequel

I like the fact that you didn't like totally stray from the story like some series/continued animations tend to do.

Really good

But it's been a while since this was done... is the sequel ever going to be released?

Ghosty22 responds:

Yeah... It's pretty close to being done.


A great sequell, heh, finaly some nice acction. The filesize is gigantic, took ages to load, but there is pretty much going on in this so that's explainable, keep up the great work!


It's like Tone Loc said

Nice artwork, the audio is good too.


I have watched few of your works before getting to "Chanter tales", from watching your latest submission i thought you were good enough for digging a little further. now you have won a place of honor in my Favorite artists list.

The story you have come up with is, like many have said before, very interesting and original, which I find remarkable. The smooth frame by frame animation is rarely seen on Newgrounds and you have done a great job on working it out, showing great patience and talent.

Was it made by Rotoscoping or with references and keyframes? Either way, it was very well done.

I'll be waiting for the 3rd part of this series and for any other submission you will add.

5/5 from me.

Keep at it!


Ghosty22 responds:

Yay! Place of honor!

Some other people thought it was rotoscoped, but I don't even know how I would begin to rotoscope something. I know how it works in theory, but I don't have the tools... But I do take it as a great compliment when people say it looks rotoscoped. References? Not sure what that means in the animation world...

Everything in Chanter Tales is drawn with the mouse. I guess my techniques change a lot. Sometimes I make movieclips of Nuok walking in place, and then I tween the clip to make it move. Other times I FBF him walking from one point to another. In which case I'd use a more Disney-like technique, where I'd draw the starting and ending pictures, and then the one in between... Then I'd draw the frames in between each of those and so on.
