Death & Taxes Ep. I

Whew. So, after months of character design, recording, animating, and flat-out procrastinating, I've finally managed to crank out this Goddamned cartoon. I don't know how well this is going to be received, but I personally think that it's pretty funny, I put a lot of effort into it, and I had a lot of fun making it. This is, as the title cunningly hints at, the first episode of a series I'm putting together. The way I'm writing this series, however, is so that each episode has a completely different tone as all the other episodes. I'm doing this partly as an experiment, and partly just to keep myself from getting bored with the series. Now, one other thing you should know is that there are actually two versions of this animation. In addition to the color version you see here, I also made a version where every color is red (in kind of a tribute/rip-off of Michael Swain's Mastermind series.) I personally prefer this version, as it's much more stylized then the regular color pallet, but nobody I show it too actually likes it, so I decided to hedge my bets and upload it on YouTube. You can find it here: (http://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=t8XLqeDt0OU) (You'll have to remove the space in the middle of the URL, of course.) So, watch both versions, and tell me in the comments which one you think is the best. Whichever style gets the most votes is the one that I'll use for the rest of the episodes.
Alright, so that's pretty much all I have to say about this.

EDIT: Holy crap holy crap holy crap I got daily fourth place! Thanks for all the great reviews on this, I didn't respond to all of them, but I have read them all, and thanks to Tom or whoever decides which submissions get frontpaged. :D

really funny

awsome u should make another 1

ha ha

that was good really funny stuff, hope this won't be the only one, but sounds like it may be awhile before we see the supervillian the dark lord of all that is evil.

rock on!

Hilarious =D

You should try sticking to the main character though, he's too good to get rid of =D

Great! but...

the evil laughter could need a little bit of work and the characters could also need an upgrade, but everything else was otherwise great and pure evil.
Ps: you can make the main character more evil in appearance and actions

NerdvanaStudios responds:

I dunno, I kind of like how the Dark Lord's design came out. I doubt that, even if I did re-work it, I could do anything better than what you see now (I'm not sure if that's a reflection on how good the drawing is or how bad my art skills are.)
