This is an interactive essay that was done for a class of mine. My argument is that if you try to be unique by wearing the latest fashions, you're never going to get what you want. It has no preloader because I had some troubles with it.

It is in the form of a comic book, so it reads left to right, top to bottom. Click on the scenes to watch them play out and click on the page corners to turn the page.

im a guy so i dont like the storyline but iliked the animation and i liked how you made it sort of an interactive comic book type deal


This is how my ex-wife was. But the sad part is she never saw the light.

way to short but i liked it

8 for 10. I liked it. The style the animation it was very good. What makes you lack in the last 2 stars is the horrible fact that it is extremely short

yiautta responds:

Thank you. I had limited time to complete the assignment, hence the shortness. But you're right, it would be a much deeper and compelling argument if I made it a little bit longer. Thanks for your input.

An Interactive Comic On Trendiness.

I admire your ambition, the click-a-panel-and-watch-a-scene-unfol d idea is not too shabby. Although I do not think that people will understand what it is at first. It took me about three seconds to figure out what it was when I found out I was supposed to click the panels to unfold the story. So I clicked them in proper left-to-right fashion. Now the artwork is no masterpiece, but it is standard enough. The characters are a little flat, but at least there was a lot of effort put into the backgrounds(buildings, streets, etc.) and I like that. The message of this entry is what I found to be the best part. So in short, I say you should refine your artistic abilities and gloss up your characters and buildngs with the use of light and shadow so that they don't look as flat. Of course you might want to practice on a blank template first.

yiautta responds:

Thanks; I know my art skills aren't absolutely wonderful, but I'm practicing. The art is a little bit flat, you're right. Like DanClement also said, the navigation is a little bit unregulated and confusing, but i had limited time and just went with an idea. I will definitely rework this when I have more time, improving the graphics and making it a little bit easier to navigate. Thank you for your constructive criticisms.

Nice one

I liked it. The little story was well set out and there was a powerful message behind it. Your drawing and animation skills are very good.

My only criticism is that you didn't really explain what had to be done (I was clicking around for ages before I realised you had to click each picture to make something happen, and then click the page corner to move on). Maybe some instructions somewhere would be useful?

yiautta responds:

Thank you very much for the review. You're right, a little bit of instruction would be helpful. I hate confusion. I'll add it in later.
