10 reasons for me to be happy!

Alright, this is a short short, my best flash so far, I think. I recorded the voice a long time ago (I have a much deeper and manlier voice now, I promise), and found the soundfiles on my computer last week. I thought it was pretty funny so I decided to animate to it. And I LOVE the result.

This is going to be my last mouse drawn submission, since it's my birthday soon. Bamboo here I come!! :3 Also, it's not as animative great as I promised Rutger, but I think it looks good. And I lowered my smoothing, just as you told me, Fawx. Also, "Expand Movie" looks very good on this one. Nice widescreeny mjau! :D

Everything happens really fast, it might be a good idea to watch it again if you didn't understand. And it's good thing if you've seen Sin City. Hartigan-pic (C) by Frank Milla.

Cheers. Reviews are warmly welcome!

Oh man, how I would love to see this in slowmotion. Very funny indeed.
Too bad he only made it to reason four (lazy bastard)

Whats my name? Snoop doggy dawg.

A nice little short

This could have been drawn out more. More reasons to be happy would've kept me more entertained, but as it is it's not bad.

The animation was a bit on the simple side, but for a short it was appropriate.

The sound was interesting, and yeah, the voice was very young, but went surprisingly well with the flash.

Thanks. I kinda felt like making a short flash.

Statics are annoying

Very fast paced but funny nevertheless. I like the ideas you came up with in the animations, especially the "job" one was nice.

The drawings are a bit sloppy but they fit with the fast pace of the movie. It's like "the movie is fast so I don't have much time to draw things!".

I liked how the flash ended after 4 reasons with that nice punchline. The character is dead, so he can't continue anymore.

However, the sound quality was a bit too low. Sometimes there are noticeable static sound, which are really annoying. Try turning down the recording level of the mic a bit next time.

Thanks, the audio was recorded a long time ago, :D

A little short

I still think that you could have made this into a slightly longer piece, by adding a few more reasons, before pulling the plug on the thing and killing off the main protagonist. (Oh by the way, it's spelled Frank Miller.)

I'm sure that you can think of more thank just the three little jokes that you would have used to make up numbers 1-9, it's not that difficult. How about the car he drives, the income he's on. There's 2 more and I haven't even really bothered to think so far.

The animation is decent, with the drawing style being deliberately 'unfinished' in that you haven't spent time polishing the images, to make them more presentable, thus making the wife and kids look even more ugly and disgruntled.

Don't get me wrong, what you've done so far is good, with a decent punchline, that hits hard, but it needs something else to back it up properly.

HolyKonni responds:

Thanks, good review. I was going to leave for summer vacation so I didn't have so much time. And also, Frank Milla > Frank Miller. :3
