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.

OMG that isn't fair!

I was getting so pumped until... "We are about to find out" *Cut to "To Be Continued"

Argh! I legitimately yelled out NO! jeez! Now I have to wait until the next part comes out!

Aside from that I was very pleased with the artwork as I am with most of the Brakenwood series. Everything played out very nicely with each other. I especially loved the sunset seen. I learned a great tip from that one seen there about color schemes. :D

And as I was watching this that question popped into my head. ``Is Bitey all alone on that world?" Very well played out!

I wouldn't be surprised if this is nominated or even wins a Tank Award this year. But hey! There's still this next portion of the story that needs to be seen!

Good job on this! The effort is clearly shown in it all!

Have a good one and best of wishes to your future!

My jaw will never recover......

I just want to say after watching this flash my jaw as hit the floor and I don't think it will ever recover. Everything about this flash is perfect (well almost prefect.) I kinda wondering why now you decided put a female narrative too give a life story on "bity" I love the animation and the background is kick ass. I wish you did not have a cliffhanger! I can't stand the wait too see what going to happen next. I also love your preloader you made.

Now I not trying to be an ass kisser or anything but this man right here needs to have a day dedicated too him just like clock day and madness day. He is an impression too all future flash artiest. I not sure who you put for your female narrative but she GREAT and needs to be in a professional work. I can't wait part 2. Don't take too long or I going to die of anticipation. =)
