With the X-Men origins movie going around, I felt it kind of necessary to create my own "Origins" story and sort of recreate in a parody manner how Scott became Cyclops in this short film.

This is my second short film edited in flash, unlike "Kinky Rayman"... I've actually added a preloader to this movie, I even tried animating it but I don't know how to get all of the kinks out when animating between a frame by frame "graphic" to a "movie clip" and still get it to work as I hope it would.

So take it easy on me, I'm still figuring things out. Hope you enjoy it though!

Good Artwork but Animation Needs Improvement

You are clearly a very talented artist when you try because Scott is drawn very well (I am not sure if he had red hair but that's okay). The background was also crisp but certain drawings could be improved such as the mailbox.

Unfortunately, the animation was weak at times and that really detracted from the submission. Other areas that you should work on include the preloader (as you acknowledged), the sound, and developing a plot. Not having a plot is okay for a short film such as this one but becomes a glaring issue when you begin to create feature-length submissions.

All in all, your artwork shows promise and I am confident that you can improve your animation skills with time. Good job.

Well thanks for telling me what needs work, I just made this within a few hours so it's very simplistic. As far as story goes, that's was basically it, I felt it necessary to keep it short and sweet. I'm still getting used to flash though, learning something new every day.

And I've got some more stuff coming out soon, should be much more intricate than my previous submissions so far.
