nice lil thing ya got going there ;)

well i enjoyed it quite much, not so much as entertainment, but show a state of mind, shows you're creative and have a god immagination; If you learn to develop good flash skills you can you them both too advantage keep it up, i like to see progress ;)

ThePoobaman responds:

I'm going to call you Doktor.

Anyway, Doktor, you seem to have the SLIGHTEST glimpse of how a creation should be judged.


Secondly, Richard Nixon.

In conclusion, I say you are a good (or "god", as you [y=mx+b] say) man with bad spelling skills, and a god immmmmmmmmagination.

Have a fucktacular day, (that was goodwill)

if you are gonna do stuff like this...

it;s best to have some background music. maybe a nice alternative song. then make it lounger. a nice little flash I guess. I like the art style, sorta like a little kid drew it or somethin.

ThePoobaman responds:


(P.S.) I apologize sire, as THE flashman of Newgrounds, I owe you some respect. Thank you.


It's always the simple ones that I like.

And yours couldn't get any simpler - despite the ending, you only used one color: blue.

I'd suggest making the animation fluid unless that's the style you're going for. Otherwise I'd suggest sprucing up the drawings a bit more.

I'm not even sure what happened at the end - was that the character at the bottom right corner of the last screen? :p

ThePoobaman responds:

The point is to be as vague as possible.


Im no hot shot at flash myself but the pages were really jumpy. smooth out the frame rate right now.

ThePoobaman responds:

Woah woah woah tough stuff. You think that you can just GO AROUND making INNOCENT animaors UNHAPPY?!?!?!?!? Well, you've got a LOT to learn punk!!!

I love you.

Interesting concept.

I'll give a 3 for the effort. In all honesty, someone with a photoshop GIF animator can do the same thing. The only reason i gave a 3, is because it's just as taxing to do a frame by frame animation with flash as it is with a GIF editor, if not more so.
I'm not saying it's horrible, but you've got a lot of room for improvement. The frames are a little jumpy and no amount of increasing the rate will change that. If this is a first attempt or an experiment, that's a good first try. Otherwise I think you need to go back to the drawing board and work on a more fluid style of animating (unless you want a jumpy manufactured style, which in some cases can be quite fitting).
There's little story besides some paramecium looking bug evolving into a Kirby and then a tree getting smashed by a random sphere of some kind.
Art always has a captivating story behind it, even the most simple pieces tell a story. And yes, i consider Flash animations to be art. There's not much else i can say except don't get discouraged, just keep working on it.

ThePoobaman responds:

My seven year old brother made this, I put it on flash and turned the color from black on paper to blue on digital. These are traced onto the computer.
