Happy Pico Day!

Thanks for the awesome music HouseMasta, I was listening to my NG tracks, and when I heard this, it inspired me to make this flash.

It's a short loop I made, why they have guns is because I was going to make a Pico flash when he kills goths, but I gave up and used the character for this.

I hope you enjoy it.

Boring, but good art

I've never been a fan of loops. This has two - the music and the artwork. I am aware that you have made different layers move at different speeds to each other.

You've proven your skills with artwork (and in the preloader how to move them) so why don't you do something with them in time for Pico Day 2007 - You've still got almost 2 months to go (April 30th).

I do hope this is only a precursor to your Pico Day flash.

Thanks for the review. I'll probably be making a Pico submission. Well, I better get to work. :)

ehh it was okay

But you should of waited to submit it on April 30th, when Actual Pico day is.

You submitted it too fast :[[[ and soon.

Ehh I don't know why it got such a good score, it's just a endless loop with a sound clip...

But I'm a flash animator, everyone knows that flash animators have no patience. </sarcasm>

Happy Early Pico Day!

That was pretty good.

The background graphics were amazing, I havn't seen anything like that before.

Pico looked a bit off, the preloader makes it look like its going to be a bit crap but it is actually awesome.

Worth the watch, music suits it perfectly.

Keep up all the great work ShortMonkey, or as Some people call you "Ape which is Vertically Height Challenged."

It's one of the best one-frame things I've seen, b

Sorry dude. 1/5

Well, what's here?

A sentiment, some visuals, some sound.

The sound's cool. Happy vibe and good beats. But maybe having it loop would have worked better for this? But yeah - good sound.

The visuals - well... it's generally drawn fairly well. I'm not too keen on your style of drawing Pico, but like that you've not been afraid to reimagine him a bit. The cactuses and whatnot are well drawn... I like the blurred pico in the distance. Seeing multiple picos on-screen was kinda funny.

The parallax scrolling was well done too.

But really, there's just not enough visually for my eye to feast on.

It does, however, do enough to put forward a sentiment... a sentiment of... 'happy Pico Day'.

Wait, what? Pico Day isn't for a while! That's like saying, 'merry Christmas' as November is just finishing! I honestly don't understand why you submitted this now.

I kinda enjoyed looking at it for a while, but the sentiment seems odd.

I think you should keep working on it if you want to submit this on April 30th, maybe introduce more elements as time goes on... there's a music video of scenery rushing past a train window, and every time there's a beat or an instrument, a new bridge or whatever comes along (different things for different beats). Maybe you could be inspired by that?

I think it's by Michel Gondry for a Fatboyslim song.

It's one of the best one-frame things I've seen, but it doesn't seem appropriate today.

ShortMonkey responds:

I know what you mean. Thanks for the long review. I don't think I'm gonna make anything more with Pico this year though.
