Whoo, my first complete flash animation! This was made for a school project, and it took roughly 3 weeks to complete. It probably would have been finished sooner if I didn't have all my other final projects to worry about.

I'm not actually planning on making a show with it, I just don't have the time for that.

Thanks again to David Orr for composing the main theme! Your music is EPIC.

The animation was great and the music went really well with it. I just started and have no idea how to do any of this stuff yet but seeing people like you doing amazing animations gets me wanting to make my own.


I really think you should go through and make some story flashes with this, i know id be waiting for it :)


3 WEEKS?! Yeah I'm impressed :)

Obviously given the popularity of the idea of kung fu animals originality takes a bit of a hit in the score, but don't let that discourage you from doing it. Every idea has potential to become original no matter what it's inspired by.

The style and animation are the real focus here. You don't sacrifice detail when it comes to animation and I like to see that amount of effort in character design. It make me appreciate it more when the animation is as smooth as that was. Really great stuff.

The sound worked with the piece well. Changing and shifting at all the right moments. Really added to the tone of the animation.

Originality: 7/10
Style: 9/10
Animation: 10/10
Sound: 9/10


Lanmana responds:

Thanks for the review, I enjoyed reading it. It was a very thoughtful and unbiased critique!

I'll work on improving my animation in future flashes, and hopefully I can put something up with actual story lines to it eventually. I have a great idea for an original short story animation, and I plan to handle it much more professionally than this. It might take several months to a year though. XD

Thanks for watching!
