This is for the Winter Flash Off / Christmas Collection 2009. / collection/christmas2009.

This is REALLY LATE because my tablet decided to go and explode on me. Thanks to newgrounds for awarding me with a new wacom one though! in the meantime i borrowed one and got it in before the deadline wahey. This one's personal. I didn't have time to make the music for this one though.

This is my second flash with a full storyline and it's in colour so it took a lot longer than THE.LIFT. Appreciate any advice or comments, i'm still rusty at this.

And I can't get higher quality .gif files as an icon, help.

Very nice

This embodies the feeling of emptiness gained during the holiday seasons when your in the point in your life where you've lost your childhood and are out on your own. You don't really have a Christmas list because there's nothing that you realistically want. I totally get it - nice work!

Very nice

I enjoyed it.
I have not seen any of your other work,
but by this one (and no offense)
it looks like you could still use a little
more practice with your drawing.

You did a great job on everything
though! Much better than what
i can do!

Well... What was with the arrows? I don't enjoy xmas like when I was a kid, that's right, all the magic's gone tbh, and yeah the recession sux ass but people is still buyin their xmas stuff like always happened. I'm not sure if I've got the point. And why the hell does she appear as her kid self when the bus goes by? About the unexisting faces in half the flash... Well, I guess you can shield on the tablet fuckin you up, so I'm just leaving it there, but next time try to finish the faces (for me, it adds a lot of emotion to the flash, you can tell what they're thinking for their expressions etc)

The music was great, but I guess the animation didn't pay for it, sixie srry

beccahyman responds:

I don't know where you live, but in London it honestly honestly did not feel like christmas. People weren't really buying all the pretty things in the shop windows this year, but i guess that's not what christmas is about anyway. I've worked on some facial work but in my sketchbooks and notebooks and things i'd always drawn moving characters without faces. Maybe there's psychology in that i don't want to know about.
