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.


Loved it

That was a fine piece of work! Great art, sound effects and it was funny! Keep em coming!


This flash is actually amazing. Only things i'd say you need to build on is stronger characters. If this became a series, with a good storyline, this would be an instant hit. Good luck, the future is bright for you!

i love pencilmation

I think this is one of the funniest.

Bearded Guy vs. Goatee Guy

The beard itself wins. Always.

Very enjoyable!

Very well made animation! I loved the humor :]

Are you a fan of Don Herdzfeldt? This toon reminded me a lot of his old one called Genre. If you haven't seen his work, I'd suggest you check it out.

Good job again!

Oh yeah, Herdzfeldt is great! I am definitely a fan.
