Birthday's aren't always fun for EVERYONE...

UPDATE - Front page! Awesome. Thanks to NG and everyone who voted.

Something a little different this month. The Sketched crew made this short cartoon as an online birthday card and we decided to post it here.

Feel free to pass it on to any friends or relatives you know who may have a birthday coming up.


Awesome coincidence :D

Today is my birthday aswell :D

The animation was great, I especially loved the way you animated their mouths. Those candle's movement was very dynamic, only the people around them had a bit too passive role :( Not in the bad way of course, they just were a bit too "stiff like"

Anyways, well done. We shall be waiting for more!

Yeah, I did want the focus to be on the candles but I do admit the I could have spent a bit more time animating the people. I'm really glad you enjoyed the short though. Thanks for the review.

Awesome-ly Entertaining!

The art was not badly done, it showed texture to the candles and how ugly birthday-boys really can look. Voice acting was done smoothly to kinda give each candle a personality. And it was very funny, I watched over and over. You, sir, are a GeNiUs!

Wow. Thanks for both your review AND your amazing compliments. Haha.


I've always been weird that way... everything I blew candles off my cake when I was a child, I used to make believe they we're alive.... this is almost exactly what I pictured. This is just friggen hilarious. 5/5

Ill never look at birthdays the same way I do again. It gives a whole new perspective of the blowing of the candles.
