Pencilmation #5: To Beard or Not to Beard.

Hooray for being on the front page! Personally, this isn't my favorite Pencilmation, but that's just me. I've been trying to do a new one every two weeks, and I do feel like my style is improving. Well, at least I hope my style is improving...

A few things I am considering for the future:
-Background music that is not techno
-Including images the hand along with the pencil and having more interaction at that level
-Creating a more realistic pencil line (may involve using a program other than Flash)

Anyway, just a couple of ideas I'm kicking around....

Yet another Pencilmation from the strange mind of Ross Bollinger.... find the rest of his cartoons along with his blog at

And That's Why Facial Hair Is Bad For You.

This flash is actually impressive despite being the fifth of the series. Most series on the episode either become the bomb or just bomb by their fifth episode, this goes into the former. Although the concept is really original, the movie still keeps being imaginative by keeping it old skool, from the cliche mirror match scene to the artist (The pencil-controller) continuing to manipulate and play around with it's creations. The ending however was very surprising and left me speechless and laughing. Although the second the movie ended, I decided to do a complete shave down just in case.

Perfect - just perfect!

Cutesy animation, that worked supremely within its own stylistic world.

Funny, imaginitive, and decent production values.

I shall check out your other work.

Suggestions for the next installment: Use a 2B :P lol

Pencilmation = Great Show!

After seeing the forth installment of your series I just had to go back and check out the rest. I must say, your animations are quite imaginative, often very amusing as well as very entertaining.

This short is no exception. Excellent work! +1 to Favorites

I look forward to your future projects.

Pretty good

I loved it when he turned fat from the burger. But the animation was a bit short, and I felt it lacked a bit. Oh, and if you buy a new macbook, can you send me the one you found in the dumps? Cheers
