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 Pencilmation.com.


Not your best

I seriously loved pencilmation1 and 2, but i think the quality of your vids has been lowering. There were some funny parts, but not to Lol.
Seriously, you could do better.

good animation

I thought it was pretty cute and clever

Pretty Good

I liked it, mostly. I'm not sure if that whole fart was supposed to be a childish laugh, or more like a "Fart on that ugly fat kid" kind of laugh, so I went with the latter option. It was well animated, and I liked it for the msot part, though I had to mark you down 1 point for two reasons:

"Pencilmation 3?" Why is it 3?
And the one character always would do that cheesy smile at the camera, which I thought was a little stupid looking.

By the way, are you Ross, or not? You're reffering to yourself, or him, as if you aren't him, which I'm surprised no one's investigated yet.

I liked the animation, but
I got the impression that you were
trying to make this funny.
It was hard to tell, though,
because it just wasn't funny.

Sorry, It just made me a little uncomfortable.
"Am I supposed to laugh?"

great just great

i love your work
