Ash in Flashland #01

Hey folks, Ash here~

In this, the first actual episode of the "Ash in Flashland" series. Our hero flees the watchful eye of 'The Animator' but finds himself lost in a grassy knoll. Upon trying to contact his troops at Highwind Castle, he realizes his communicator is completely shot!

Could things get any worse? ...Absolutely!

This particular flash; being the first in the series, and only my second flash ever. It isn't very long. But rest assured, my future ones will certainly be longer!

Thanks and happy watching!

Well well...

Still spooking little kids with that logo theme eh? But it does sound better, not as loud, don't know, maybe it was me before. Anyhow, on to the good and the bad...

Stuff you fail at:

-The background was moderate, ok I wasn't expecting anything special, but it just didn't feel like it had depth. I mean you have the word horizon in the logo, and though it was a good try, to an experienced eye something just looked wrong. It was good nonetheless.

-Even if it is just a little round circle beneath the character, a shadow would be recommended. That was the flash looks less 2D. This isn't a major issue, nothing really is in this flash, but its the minor things that hurt.

-When the SHPC Theme song is done playing, or even before, have it scroll up and have it fade as it goes, from there have the text that comes after it fade in as it scrolls up. Just an idea.

-You have heard this before, but though the character animation is mostly smooth, surprisingly smooth sometimes, it just seems like its a little choppy. Hard to really express it properly, perhaps the speed doesn't quite match the character's steps.

Things you did well:

-The comedy was, as per norm, quite entertaining. I actually laughed out loud at one point, and I am sure some of the other viewers can say the same.

-The charactes animations (such as the turning of the head) is done very well, the timing for these turns is also right up there, it conveys emotion, which is never easy to do in a sprite flash.

-The song fits the mood, and the ending "theme" fits the comedy portion quite well. It rounds off the flash nicely.

-DId I mention that your timing is perfect?

All in all you did a good job with this, for your second flash this is righ up there, the comedy aspect was good, timing...perfect, animation (sprite) is normal but with a unusual twist, and you left us, the ones who bothered watching the whole thing, wanting a little more.
