About a year ago, I decided to make a short hand-drawn toon, mostly cause I was sick of seeing the same old use-a-lot-of-tweens-every -frame-looks-similar crap. There was a song on the first Meat Puppets album I really liked and thought it would be a great song for a quirky, squiggly cartoon like this. Yeah, I know it's all squiggly and trippy. Yeah, I know it's all black & white. Yeah, I know it's not very long. But whatever. Take it for what it is. You may not enjoy it, but other people do.

Did NOT expect that ending 0_o

buddhafatty responds:

Heh. I've heard that about 50 times now. And I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I didn't know how I was gonna end it when I made it, that's what I decided on doing, and now I'm glad I did it.

Squiggly Circles Review

Well it's not bad, but could definitely use some improvement. I liked it though.

-Music was very fitting, catchy
-Creative transitions
-Frame by Frame? Correct me if I'm wrong.

-Lack of detail

Entertainment - 510
// Was a bit short, but you can do a lot with a small amount of time if you try. I enjoyed watching it, it wasn't bad by all means, just average.
Animation - 5/10
// I really like the transitions but lines could use work. Try 3 or 4 frames for line animation, use onion skinning to help with that. Frame by frame animation is an art form, and looks creative and stylish. I said lack of colour was a con, but black and white can look great two when you have detail. I suggest adding shading. You have some talent in you, practice makes perfect afterall.
Audio - 7/10
// Liked the song, catchy. Points were deducted for using a (licensed?) song, but I understand some people can't make their own music. It's a tough thing to do, I find it difficult to create catchy and high quality tunes.
Creativity - 6.5/10
// I can't decide between a 6 or a 7. It's you just that you have creative talent, but it's nothing new, or innovative.

FINAL SCORE (Not an average) - 5/10

It's nothing amazing by any means, but it could be a brick leading up to a full wall. I'd like to see you put a bit more effort, it seems you have some talent. You can stick by frame by frame, or whatever style you used, just try to add a little extra detail, like shading. Doesn't even have to be in colour. Also, use a thinner brush size, as larger is not necessarily better. If you have a tablet, that's great and it'll be easier. But I'm assuming you have a mouse, so it'll take some time to practice to get things really looking good.

I hope I didn't come off sounding like a ass, or too harsh. I just want to offer some tips, and point out some things you can improve. I hope to see more work from you.

buddhafatty responds:

Yeah, in hindsight, I wish I'd put in more detail. Despite the fact that I made this over a year ago and I probably would've made it better had I made it more recently (and recorded my own music), I really appreciate the constructive criticism. I'd rather have that than some douche leaving some unintelligible negative comment.
