Well, this is my Christmas submission to the portal. Its actually my first attempt on animation using a Wacom tablet. It took me a while to get used to it but I think you'll see improvements as you watch the movie. I really worked hard on this so please leave constructive reviews, not silly comments!

This is actually the first part of a two-part video, the reason is the second part of the video isn't Christmas themed so I decided to cut it out. I'll be working on that probably after Christmas, so yeah...its gonna be a while.

Oh, and don't forget to recommend for the Christmas collection.

yeah wow

that sure is awesome, you got talent


For a first flash this was awesome.Even for a professional this would be awesome.Keep up the good work.


This is an exceptionally well-done flash. I liked your style of animation. The no color thing works very well for it. Your use of music is excellent. Choice of music is very important when putting together any visual presentation - it can pretty much make or break your work. Well I thought it fit perfectly.

Two things I noticed that can be improved. One, there was one scene with a bridge and river where I noticed the water animation overlapped with the bridge. I'm not sure if that was intentional or not, but that might be something you want to watch out for in the future. Also, as noted below, the sound was slightly scratchy. But, really, that didn't take away from anything in my opinion because the sound was great regardless.

All in all, a very good submission.


Man that was sweet for just testing your tablet. Now I got a question for you, if you wouldn't mind telling me, Is it really all that easier and faster to do stuff with a tablet after you get used to it? Like I SUCK at animating but I'm a freaken awesome action scripter. I have only made 2 games and both are awesome for my first from what ppl tell me but I just cant do graphics at all.

Well, I don't really know about it been much easier, but it sure beats using a mouse. Trust me, I'm no graphic designer myself, its just practice that brought me thus far. I suggest if you want to take your animation and games seriously, you grab yourself a tablet.... they aren't really that expensive. I'm sure in time the general quality will improve. :)


I don't know what your saying.

But on a serious note, that was really good. The voice and music were crisp and the sketches were very well done. And the fact that you were just testing out your waccom tablet and made this, I am very impressed

Can't wait for the next one.

Also, Merry Christmas to you too
