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 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


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Simply amazing.

Great animation (although a bit inconsistant, as the animation look seemed to change), the change with a new voice really was cool and let me see into Bitey's world, and now that I really know the plot, it's really good, and it left me really wanting to see the next part.

Great work, 5/5, 10/10.

this is an awesome series you have going. I would love to see bitey race Sonic the Hedgehog, and see who would win.

You are a God amongst animators.

I have been following your work since your first submition, and what can I say, I absolutely love your style. So much detail, so much life... It's just drawing, but it looks photo-realistic. The music, voice acting, everything, is so beautiful. I loved Bitey from the first moment I saw him, his innocent cruelty and mischievous pranks. It's nice to finally see what made him so bitter, but I really hope he's not going soft on us X)
