the Last of the Dashkin

Author Comments

This is the story of the last of the dashkin. The people are all gone and in a world of innocent animals, the solitude, the sadness and bitterness have corrupted his view of life. What does the future hold for such a tragic creature? Will he wander the planet, forever alone until his death? Will he always be the wild King of Brackenwood?

It's a massive honour to be nominated for a 2nd Tank Award, thanks NG! Thank you for front page, all the great reviews and the incredible score for Daily Feature.
Thanks to Brackenwood fans and donors for all the support not only during the 4 weeks I spent making this, but also in the 2 years since I submitted Waterlollies.

Since then I've been working on the Brackenwood feature film outline with my good friend Ryan O'Loughlin. With no plans for a new web episode in the meantime it occurred to me that Brackenwood fans could be waiting years for the feature. I didn't want to abandon them altogether, so this new movie is my way of staying in touch with them and the NG audience.

This is the first Brackenwood short to break away from the "character introduction" style movies that had little or no character motivation and plot. This is a story, not only answering a lot of questions, but asking just as many new ones.

I used Flash CS3, the .fla is over 300MB (half of that is audio) and it took me 4 weeks.
Don't worry I won't be leaving it another 2 years. I plan on starting storyboards on the conclusion in jan-feb 2010.



This was animated very well, probably the best ive ever seen. And I understand you want to bring in a story, but I dont really like the story... Its not really different from all the other story's with mages and mystic creatures and so on..
These flashes were different, but now I think you have just made it quete regular.

you're a master

this is probably the only series that is worth watching on newgrounds.
you truly deserve 10/10.

God-likely Detailed

Like many people have said, the animation in this is stunningly amazing. I'll be waiting and watching the next one, the one after that and all the one after that.

Perfect - 10/10 5/5


a backstory series. now we'll be able to see people stop bitching and bragging about how it doesn't have COCK JOKES!! or low quality microphones or (shivers) Ultra sexual references to video games.

can't wait for the second one.

This was Amazing in every way!

The amination style, color, text, 10/10 perfect! (Brackenwood!)
The voice was great for the story telling and fit for the enivorment, elegant, 10/10
flow of animation was smooth, fast, and soft and dark color effects to fit the changing mood of Bittey's story. 10/10
Plot/Story: never thought Bittey had such a heavey and sad past, I'm so excited and very willing to wait for everything to be compose rightly to see what unfolds for the Wild King of Brackenwood. 10/10
