I'm definitely looking forward to episode 2
I liked this
good thing you posted this on newgrounds,the mainstream never will appriciate this fine peace of work
this is so cool i cant wait till ep:2 comes out i wanna see the lady scarecrow
This was very nice. Nice voice acting, awesome art & animation, and good story. Overall, I loved it is very "professional-looking". Great job, 10 Stars.
What a coincidence.
I barely come to Newgrounds anymore, so imagine my surprise to not only see an old favorite of mine submitting something new, but submitting something that I had already seen the beginnings of. I remember seeing the first half minute or so you did years ago. I can't believe that you're just now submitting this. Man, it's like time stood still and I never left.
Anyways, on to the Flash itself.
It's an impressive piece of work. Not very many people attempt something of this kind of scope and scale. For a while there I was thinking it might end up being as long as a normal TV episode. The storyline has a real Watership Down feel to it. Nothing amazingly original out of it yet, but it is just the pilot.
The animation quality I noticed various slightly. I think I can pick out scenes you animated a couple of years later than the rest. It seems like I suggested using the smooth function years ago, but doesn't look like you did :P Also, there's the slight issue of sudden stops in animated movement. You know, where the image is frozen as soon as the movement stops and looks jerky. It's a tricky thing to avoid, but if you can find a way to correct it then your animation quality will really improve.
These are just friendly little critiques though, on the whole, the Flash is awesome. Hopefully you're not planning on this being anything over a 3 part series, otherwise we might never see the ending ;)
Thanks pal. It is indeed tricky to avoid those jerky movement bits. Thing is that the drawings take up alot of memory, being pretty detailed, that even at medium quality it won't go 100% smooth. Only a fast 2ghz ram pc can run this on high quality and then the linework will also be smoother. You can try what it looks like then (press the toggle quality button twice) and the difference should be noticable.
