Okay test.

It's not bad, but it's far too short, and tests don't really belong on Newgrounds.

Your new tablet seems to be working just fine. The graphics are really simple, not in a bad way, and the animations are smooth. It lacks a background, though, which gives it a very rushed feel. Might want to do something about that. It doesn't even have to be something too detailed, just something other than a a bland coloured sheet.

It's very short, which you explain by saying it's a test. That's okay, but tests don't really need to be uploaded to Newgrounds. I get that you want to get reviews on it to see if people like your style, but then you should probably delete this one again later on.

The story itself is amusing, but very short. I'm not really sure how it could be any longer, but I guess you could make it overly dramatic, with a fire-funeral, a fire-childhood and his entire life behind him, and then he dies because he cries. I don't know, just throwing some ideas.

Song was great, and sfx was pretty good, though maybe not completely in sync. That's just nitpicking, of course.

All in all, I can't give this more than 4, simply because it's a test, and it's so short. However, seeing what you can do, I know you can make some pretty awesome movies in the near future.

Good graphics here.

~ Animation/Graphics ~

You really had some nice graphics here compared to some of your past work. I really like the graphics and animation all around. What would have really helped this piece out though is adding a background. A well detailed background would have very well brought my score up from a 3 to a 5 very easily.

~ Story/Content ~

The idea wasn't really funny or ground breaking, but I thought it was really neat. The fire killing himself with his own tears was a very original idea. I'm assuming the rock is going to kill him, but nope, great job on the originality there. Sadly though it's very short and with it only being a few seconds I can't really see where this has any replay value. :( Maybe having several options where he dies in a different way every time would have made this more interesting.

~ Audio ~

I think you picked the perfect song for this little animation and the sound effect that you used was pretty well synced up. There isn't any more to comment on except maybe adding a crying sound somewhere could have added a little bit of value to the submission.

~ Overall ~

A nice little short, but to be anything worth coming back to or being really entertained by it needs to be a bit longer with a nice background of some sort.

(My original score was a three, but I decided to give an extra point because I can see where these types of tests really don't get much time put into them and aren't meant to be amazing)

I was Touched

The plot progression, the great animation, the climactic moment when you wonder what will happen... brought tears to my eyes. Not to mention the humor, and then how well we got to know the characters so we could connect with them. But for a test, not bad...

A truly groundbreaking animation...in the field of trying to do so little work to get onto newgrounds...
