My first submission. It's short and stupid but it's real, man. It's from the heart, man!

EDIT: Though it is unlikely that many more people will see this on NG - I will add this little rant.
1. This is a single frame comic strip (like The Far Side, etc.) - but animated.
2. The notion that a hairy dark lump of skin on your forehead could be considered less gross than a spider perching itself on your big bald melon is supposed to be funny.
3. The subtlety of the animation and un-life-like atmosphere is the style of the world I have created for these characters. I think you would have to admit that the lip sync is pretty tight and stylized.
4. I guess people just don't get it. Oh, the agony of a misunderstood artists existence on this desolate earth!

I'm very sarcastic, by the way.

lul wut?

ZILLIS responds:

I have no idea what that means - but it must not be such a great thing.


People who don't see the pure utterly sensational humor that this animation is offering us, why they are despicable human beings!

You, sir, are a genius!

ZILLIS responds:

Wow, I didn't know it was THAT good.
Haw Haw!

i remember that strip

this is absolutely not funny in any way, it wasn't even really funny coming from gary, but i appreciate your saracasm. i'd be a massive assfaggot if i voted anything lower.

ZILLIS responds:

I think you misunderstand. This is a single frame joke that I made up. If someone else thought of the same joke, I am not aware of it and I don't have any idea who gary is.
But, uh... Thanks for the score.

EDIT - OHHHH... you mean gary larson, the farside guy. No No No. I said it was LIKE that type of thing. I don't think gary published a joke like this. Your memory is faulty my friend.

Loved your2nd flick, this doesn't seem like...

...the same artist made it. :-? I understand the humor in what you said the flash was -supposed- to portray, but if I hadn't read what you intended, I'd never have known it was the point. You did so much better on the 2nd one, though, I have to assume this is just some sort of first-timer myopia or some such - nobody knows what you're thinking unless you convey it somehow in the flash. I'd have gotten it without your explanation if the "Eww, gross!" character had replied, "Oh, in that case, never mind" (or something similar).

Unless you really just don't care, in which case, ignore this. I can understand that, not caring, btw - it's not an insult or put-down or anything for me to suggest it. You make flash for you, that's more than fine. :-) Still think your 2nd one totally rocked, especially next to this. Keep makin' 'em however you like 'em, though, even if nobody "gets it" but you. :-)

ZILLIS responds:

I think your review is fair. Keep in mind, there are some people who get the joke immediately without "eww, gross" man having to say anything (though those people are assuredly in the minority).
Other than a potential inclusion to a series of several simple one frame gags, this is just a throw away experiment, that I happen to think is quite funny. I love their mouths! I accomplished the style I was going for. I'm very happy with it.
Your honesty is appreciated, good sir.


too short nto funny,and boring >:(

ZILLIS responds:

Aw! you probably have a birthmark on your head.
