I've been on NG for ages, but finally here's my first submission!
A very subtile conversation between a flower and... a turd.
Hope it will not be "Turd of the Week" :)
So, enjoy it!

Note: In the case you're little dummy and you haven't understood, the turd says "see you later" cause the flower will become a turd too, hehe...

Note(2): Please forgive me if my English is bad...
EDIT: You're all right, sound is really crappy, but I'll try to improve it when I find a real audio soft.



Rated 4 / 5 stars

Not bad.

~ Animation/Graphics ~

The animation and graphics were great all around! Really simple stuff, but really well done. Like in every case there is a small amount of room for improvement, but if you stayed at your skill level I wouldn't have any complaints ever about your animating skills.

~ Story/Content ~

A nice little funny submission. I hope that nobody needs that explained to them. :P Since it was such a short flash and was good as a short flash I can't really critique your submission here either. So far your doing pretty good.

~ Audio ~

This is where you have room for improvement. I don't know if you did the audio on purpose or if it messed up, but either way it didn't turn out well. You should have had the voices throughout the entire thing and the background noise should have also played during the whole thing. If you did that on purpose then I think you should do it a bit different next time and if you did it by accident I hope you can get it fixed!

~ Overall ~

I didn't find anything wrong with this submission except for the audio. Good job.

Thank you for your review!
It's true that nobody should need to be explained, but I mentioned: "In the case you're little dummy" :D
So, about the audio, I admit that it's really crappy, I only picked up sounds on the web: I couldn't make voices cause WinVista's recorder only saves in *.wma, and, apparently, Flash does not support. If you know a good sound freeware, please tell me!

Oh i see

The flower is the turd after going through the cow. Neither the flower nor the turd could control the cow. The cow must be a representative of time, not so much as old age, but a change in status. As in, being rich then poor. But that is a poor comparison as having money is not something out of your control. Perhaps it's more like a plague of some sort spread by sunlight, you can't control the sun you know. 7 stars because the audio was messed up.

Wow I didn't know that this dumb cow who can't do anything but eating and shitting was an allegory of Time...
Thanks for your analysis of my animation!
