Thank you all who watched my animation it finally earned a spot in the 2006 Christmas collection and also thank all NG staff members thanks =D

Well here it is guys a flash I have been working since December 25, 2006 I of course I did not work on it every day I took some breaks... I am not shooting for the NG rewards however I am hoping it earns a spot in the 2006 Christmas Collection =D I would be more than happy.
Special Thanks to Jimtopia =D

Special Thanks to All the Newgrounds tutorials =D And
everyone that watches it =D


Pretty Good

Well the cool thing about this is that i am Jimtopia's younger brother and i can't believe a person acctually made a fan movie, very pretty coll


It looks like one of hitlers movies.. But I'm not quite sure!
Graphic's not better, and could still be alot better!
So next time you should improve the graphics, and then you might get a nice score as well...

Mess with best regards,

Decent graphics, you actually tried hard with the opening and it showed. Song was OK, good quality sound and so on.
It was also your first flash, and you did quite well for a first :)

(- The Bad -)

Took ages to long and was painful to watch because it was so slow. You should try to keep the size as low as possible. My crappy computer couldn't really handle it. Flashes based on flash documents are getting really boring, you should try to create your own character. Also the snow was dodgy.

(-- Overall --)

A good effort for your first flash, it needs improvement and for gods skae lower the filesize, some people DO have bottom of the ladder, crap computers. ;)

Well I do have to agree that after about 1 and half month's I did dramatically improve on my flash skills. Thanks

If it was too short would you also out it instead of the too long part.
And yes, Flash files are getting old now.

Yes I will try to lower those filter's it's just that I wanted for viewers to kind of like have a good impression of me and that I can make filter's do magic thing's. Also I tried to put more filter's and shit so you could wait a bit
Thanks for your review and wish you luck, I'm going to sleep!

The graphics start out decent but you way overdid the effects and layers which ended up lookin choppy and hurting my eyes. You contrasted to much with the colors which also kill my eyes. The swf's house is drawn with a line tools and colored with paint bucket which looks like crap. The swf is grainy and unedited. You should clean up how it looks in a picture editor next time.

The idea of a flash file having a face and arms that jumps into the portal to get rated and go to NG is wayyyyyy unoriginal. The Christmas theme didn't even contribute anything to the movie which says you should think up a story. The movie is cut too short and theres really no reason for it.

The audio is okay. It fits pretty well but I would've picked some more songs.

I don't know if you tried to be funny but if you did, it didn't work. Not only that the jokes were extremely dry and childish. You could've made more jokes about the Portal and Blamming and what not.

Don't go so heavy on the effects and if you do not all over the screen and not extremely opposite colors, like bright orange to dark blue. Think up an original story and make it longer.

At first glance these flash animation seems to need a lot of improvement and I agree but if you put your mind into it you would probably have a different way of seeing these flash animation as a animation with no deep thought of story and with very little effort but I did work on it for a long time.
Anyway Thanks for the review and I will try to update it and improve the graphics a bit. Also I will try to use your suggestions in my upcoming flash.

cool one

that was a nice christmas animation. nothing too special overall, but it was still good to watch.... though im getting a little tired of all the holidays animations. i still think your efforts were nice, good music and graphics and it was cool to check out.

Why Thank You very much for your review!
I abously had to put a lot of effort into it since my other flash animations did not make so these time I took about 30-45 day's on learning techniques and that's how it became what it is now.
