I don't know why.. but something feels a bit.. off with these movies.. It's like the distinction between the sarcasm, the jokes and the serious bits aren't very clear. It kinda makes the whole thing feel sort of wooden and awkward. Otherwise it's pretty good though.
Hmm, yeah I get what your talking about. Thanks for the review.
insanely great voice acting.
But boring character designs, lazy voice syncing.
Granted Tankmen is stiffer than a cock on viagra, but the detail and designs are impeccable, and the humor is on point.
and since I didnt really find this remotely funny I was left to stare at some drab looking designs, and carboard backgrounds.
spend some time on these characters man, its not like they move past the 3 quarter angle. give us something to look at.
I did laugh when the vampire cause the spike and his hand was on backwards though.
Yeah I animated it then looked at it after and though "Is it really worth changing?". And I couldn't be bothered.
wish i could comprehend what sgoing on
Did you watch the other episodes???
way too short.
i liked it and all, but ive seen dragon ball z episodes longer than this. plus the bodies didnt move much, so there isnt much of an excuse. i think you should have done some more and released it later.
Lip Syncing & Missing Something Special
I felt like this was a great web series that could go on to do well, I've never seen the previous two episodes, so the review for this is solely based on animation techniques, plot, and mechanics.
The story was developed enough to keep me entertained, fantastic.
Lip syncing was spot on about 3/4 of the time, or perhaps half the time, it became distracting. You need a bit of work on your phonemes, and since I've agreed to Newgrounds foolish, unprofessional terms agreement, I can't post a link to a good reference to help you out, without someone going ape. (Shame) Do google "Lip-Synching For Animation: Basic Phonemes" though.
Additionally, there seems to be something missing from the animation which seems special or unique to it. The animation itself is perfectly fine, and even fantastic on a production scale. I'm sure you could grow to be an animator for a TV channel under a series as a result. However, it's right on the edge where I need to keep watching to be entertained, but I'm still feeling like I didn't get my minutes worth of watching.
The best "special part" was you including bloopers. I absolutely loved that, and most animators don't do that. Keep doing that, please.
Anyway, to sum it up, this was great, I may come back and watch your other works later, but keep growing and learning.
Hey thanks, Yeah I agree with you there. But I choose to use mouth loops instead of matching every single frame up because its very time effective and lets me concentrate on other aspects of the flash. Thanks for the tips though!
