Like the drawing style, and some nice fluid animation - although sometimes mixed with some rather choppy stuff - nice concept, good music! Keep at it!

"ruffians" is a great word

Look, you can draw well and have a nice sense of humor, but you're not letting your animation... well, reach up to its potential!

It was hard to make out what was happening. It was hard to turn the black shapes into characters and movements.
-Use colors.
-For pete's sake, use a smaller brush.

You may have to tighten up your drawings. They're really good, all the movement and whatnot, but maybe you'll have to clean them up and make it a little more defined. Even if you're not going for a real fancy finished product (and you should, right?), a little more work might be necessary just to see the drawings clearly. This is storyboard quality sketches.

Consider sound effects. They add so much life.

Good use of music and titles... terrible use of bad grammar and Times New Roman. Draw a god damn speech bubble or something. That's cheap and it looks like crap.

Even if you aren't using a setting, consider a basic background, simply for visual interest. Like, I don't know, a fuckin' b+w gradient or something.

Basically, it seems like you've finished with this animation, but it doesn't look finished. You've got so much great drawing. Polish it up, finish it up with these things.

haha well, well, you hit it right on the mark.

very nice review and I agree to all of your above statements. I'm still finding my way around flash and I'm positive that the next piece of work I put out will please you (atleast much more then this one.)

once again, thank you for the insightful review!


Rated 3.5 / 5 stars

Good Job!

the hand drawn aspects were good but the animation was really choppy. Just a suggestion, if you're going to have still frames and a slow frame-rate go for detail, but if you're using a high frame-rate there's no need because the drawings change pretty quickly (obviously). Nice work!

Nice work!

It was a very well done animation, with good music, nice graphical style, and and effective (if very limited) plot. It was a lot of fun to watch; please keep it up!
