It was nice. I'd like to see more of it.
I really loved the intro with the drops being animated in-tune with the music. The backgrounds were really well-done, and the character was designed pretty well. However, like plasticmanticor said, the girl did look sort of weird when you first drew her; she only has one eye and her head is a weird blob, as is the main character's head in the next shot of him, but then it goes back to 3/4 and looks fine. Also, the walking was sort of awkward-looking; the fact that he'd stop after every step was very unnatural. You could easily work on that a little bit. The dragon train thing flying up into the sky looked strange, too (the one where it's off in the distance, I mean); try using more than two frames of animation to make it more fluid. The light hitting him when the train is pulling into the station was really well-done.
There really is a lot of potential here. Just keep at it and I'm sure that you'll do great.
Ahh! I see what y'all are talking about now. At those moments you are seeing their faces from the side. I didn't want to go completely anime when working with this.. but maybe I should have.
Oooh I Love A Rainy Night
Your artwork and animation are quite superb I must say. The details on the characters are wonderful. The sound itself and having it sync with the raindrops is just masterful. The only thing I don't get is the story itself, I'm not sure what was going on or even what the point was. It was a very beautiful flash, but the story seems to have holes in it.
|| Good Points ||
artwork was great, except the one point on the train, that person with the red hair looked like bs at first glance. that was 1 of 2 visual parts i didnt like
music was good
animation was good, but a few parts were unrealistic (mainly the walking at the beginning. intro was pretty good, wouldnt mind a preloader
Thanks for your review!
How did the girl look bs?
At the time, I was under a time restraint so I had to finish as quickly as possible. I agree with you on the walk cycle, it annoys the crap out of me as well.
I was actually never taught how to do a preloader before so I'll look into it when I rework this piece.
Really liked it.
I found it to be very moving.
Reminds me of Spirited Away, what with the 'magical' train ride and the black figures and all. And of Zelda for some strange reason :P
(Probably because the girl has the same colour hair and dress as that one girl from Zelda: Ocarina of Time lol.)
Anyway, sounding like a geek.
Nice drawings and good use of colour!
Only thing I think could have been done a little better, was that when the child looks at the seeds he was given, the music just cuts off (well, fades too quickly).
Still, I loved it, man. Great job!
10/10 and 5/5
The unfortunate part of the ending is if I continued the music, you would hear it escalate as it fades off. I'll see what I can do to fix that. OR I'll finish the animation with the original ending I planned. Thanks for your review! <3
