This movie is my first true attempt at a Flash movie. I hope it worked out well. ^^'

I thought about adding more, but then again, a little step might be good for a start. Please leave a review, they help in future projects greatly, ^^

Also, My other name is Chaos Knight Matthew, which I go by more than this one...

didnt have the heart to blam it

i can see where ur going with it it was some nice work if u keep it up u could make it to front page someday

It's okay.

I can see what you were thinking in your head when you made this movie but In my opinion, you may need a bit more practice.

The animation was very rugged and If anything I suggest using tweens if you don't already and if you do, make them alot smoother and add EASE. Ease in tweens is a sprite animator's best friend.

I saw a small bit of lip-syncing. It was basically a black square and that's a good way to lip sync for sprites but I suggest again you use tweens for these too (it works out good for me).

If you don't understand ease, it makes your tweens so they get slower overtime or faster overtime. Say you have a Mario sprite and he's slowing down while he's running. The ease in that tween would be above 0. Also, by the end of the tween he should come to a complete stop.

Well, I hope you choose to use this advice. I hope to see more of your work in the future. Also, if you're going to use shapes (the water in the menu etc.), give them custom gradients with relatively close colors if you can't shade well. But a little shading wouldn't heard anybody, would it?

I'll give it a try, but I'm still kindof new with Flash 8, which is the one I'm using at the moment...

It's ok

I like where you are going on this. I can see your point that a small step is a good thing to start with. I hope to see more of your work and i really expect much improvement from you.

It was quite good actually.

Exceptionally good for your first movie. I don't see a reason to blam it. However I would like to see you smoothen up the animation and give it a spit 'n polish if you know what I mean. But you have a good for becoming a flash artist.

Good but kinda short

it could be longer but its you 1st flash and it was ok
