This is a fun a playful frame-by-frame animation that plays on s tree's growth. The tree is a combination of 100 frames with a play on one tree literally leads to more.

Please be fair and constructive with your responses. Special thanks to Setu-Firestorm for your wonderfully playful piece of music.

nice one

a little short overall, but that was a pretty cool animation. the audio was nice, good drawings and it was nice to watch.

I plan on doing more as I get some time off this Christmas break. I have plans on making a more involved piece with animals and more vegetation.

Thanks for taking time to review my piece.

Something which shouldn't work... but does!

Hey Tonio!
Nice to see you branching off into animation. I was really baffled by this. If someone had come up to me and said 'Wanna see a cartoon of a couple of trees growing.. and thats it' I would of laughed probably, but the way you excecute it is so original... it's something only you would pull off.
You probably don't want to take advice from someone considerably younger than you, but i thought that was nicely done (i didn't think it had glitches at all). Two things I'm not sure on:

1) The beginning, when it says 'Music by so and so etc.', that bit needs music aswell... maybe not big music, just a little tingle so we are prepared for something naturistic and marvelous!

2) Was that all really frame by frame? If it was, jesus how long did it take, or did you just make one tree in a movie clip, and copy n paste, i don't mind if you did that, that's what i'd of done xD

Well done!

TonioMiguel responds:

Yeah, I agree there probably should have been a sound or jingle on the music by part. It was 100 frames and it took about 3 hours I think plus another hour setting up the multiple trees.

has 1 problem

ok add more frames in between to smoth it out its very glitchy and up the frame rate u can tell its at 12 try to use 24 its the standard look alot better

TonioMiguel responds:

Thank you I will take that into consideration with my future frame-by-frames.


I liked it.

The graphics were really good. Now all that you need to do is incorperate a story line.

3/5 :)

TonioMiguel responds:

Thanks, yeah I have plans to work this more. For now its just a sweet frame-by-frame. I may work on adding creatures of the forest and perhaps a demented twist. Who knows.
