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.

Always my favorite

Adam, ever since I discovered Brackenwood years ago on Newgrounds, your series has always had a special place in my heart. I trust you not to rush the development of the feature film, but I am eagerly looking forward to, some years down the road, sitting down, watching it, and loving it.

Please always keep up the good work. Always.

The Renaissance Of Newgrounds

It was cheerful at times, dark and depressing at times, but it always maintained to contain to a well scripted story that told a magnificent tale. The World that is presented is stunning and immersive. The creatures designed are curious and shiny. I really enjoyed this piece and all of your other work and I cannot wait for more!

As usual your work astonishes me. Thanks for the backstory too. This is great and provides some much needed background for poor Bitey. :)

Couldnt help but watch it again

Very imaginative, creating a whole world of life and stories isn't easy.

Not to mention the animation is the most beautiful i've seen on NW

Choice of music- perfect
