This was originally for Halloween of last year but never got around to finish it. I decided to end it differently from what I had planned. It's my first animation that isn't based on other people's characters.

The intro is simple as I want people to focus on the movie itself.

I hope you enjoy it and I will be looking forward to any feedback, both positive and negative.

Enjoy :)

Edit 1 - I switched the loader to one with a play button so it doesn't loop.

The thing is dude.



Because you give everything away. It's so obvious he paints with blood. You didn't have to keep watching to figure that out. You gotta rename it man. Find something more creative, than a "bulls eye" title. Find a title that doesn't give away the concept but still evokes curiosity!

Another suggestion is, when the first lady was murdered. She should be like "Uaghh!!!!" or like, gulping cause it stabbed her or something. Right now it's not satisfying she got stabbed.

Show his paintings more often. The kitchen scene. That way it will set up and emphasize his paintings more. It'll give a stronger pay off when it reveals his secret.

Title Examples:
Scary Painter
Paint Monster
Monster Painter
Serial Painter
Psycho Painter
Monster Artist
Psycho Artist
Serial Artist
Roses are Red Damsels are Dead
Artists Block

Now, if you choose a name other than "The Bloody Painter" or "The Man Who Paints With Human Blood", then the audience don't know what they're getting them selves into. The way it's titled now, there's no surprise for us.

You should get a far better response if you rename it.
"Ohhhhhh, he paints with their blood! Now I get it!"
compared to
"Oh yeah, I knew he'd do something like that. Thanks to my habit of reading titles before watching flicks."

Quickly! Rename it! You JUST got front page! You still have a chance!!!!!!!!!!

This is just sick. But im giving it the score im giving it simply because of the animation. Style could be a bit less repetitive. More detail.

Quite good

I thought it was well put together. The concepts are chilling and interesting. However I thought that you could use a little more work on your animation.
