**i changed these comments, they are not like they were before**

ok the opening guitar music is me, and the ending song is Crucify the King by Iced Earth.

this submission features some bad quality voice acting, and i immitate the members of Iced Earth very poorly. also, there are many missing sounds that i could not find by my self-deadline, so that will be updated in the next week or so.

i will be adding music to the backgrounds of many scenes in this cartoon, so hang in there with me. vote based on what i have here and please be reasonable. so far so good, keep it comin!!!

and i didn't just write this because i owe you....

was this all done with a mouse? if so, then you do deserve some extra credit. The only animation i've ever had to do with a mouse is stick figures, so i have to assume this whole movie took an especially long time.

on the plus side, there were some genuinely funny parts to this movie that made me chuckle. (the part where Grinch-laden sewed his hands to the fabric for example). and the animation wasn't too bad considering the tools you had to work with. so nice job on that

the movie could have benefited from some background music though. it needed more than just some music at the end. you'd be surprised how some ambient background noise (or music) adds to the movie. it makes it sound more finished.

also, the voice quality was kind of low, but I can understand that entirely because it is extremely difficult to change the pitch of your voice without altering the speed. I had a hell of a time doing that for my elf in my flash. (I ended up using 3 different programs to work on the same audio file)

So good job. I didn't give you this score because just because you did me a favor... but I did give you a 5/5 for that reason :-)

smirkstudios responds:

thanks a lot bro :P let me clear some stuff up for you. i didnt use a mouse, but i did use the pencil tool the whole time which proved to be much sloppier of a tool thank i expected. my future toons will feature my skills with the paintbrush tool which is much better i must say. the low quality drawing in this is a result of not much perfection or time spent on the animation.

also, as far as the sounds, i just got a huge sound pack file of like 300 awesome sounds at pretty good quality, and i will be using sirjeffofshort 's voice talents in my next cartoon, which you can read about in my news page. thanks for the review bro, and thanks for the 5!!! i dont deserve it :P (personally i would have rated this at a 7/10 and 3/5)


Nice animation., good sense of humour, and nice idea of turbi-gami LOL

smirkstudios responds:

thank you very much. this is a big step for me, and all my toons after this one will definately be better quality and easier with the knowledge i got from making this one. thanks for the 10!


nice animation, could work on the sound though, but u can tell u have talent. ^.^

smirkstudios responds:

thank you very much. i am working on the sounds this week, so it will be more comlete and feel a lot better.

Nice work.

This was a nice piece. Funny too.

Keep it up :P


smirkstudios responds:

thanks bro. in my opinion i should have waited until i was done, but then again, the feedback and support was incredible. it opened new doors for me :D
