Sonic Ignition Ep1 Act3

OK, so the Shadow "It Doesn't Matter" video is yet to materialize, and "Sonic Excelsior" is still in the development stages (I've been sidetracked by real life, computer problems, and other projects, so sue me. They're coming, people...). I did, however get struck with a bolt of inspiration recently and I decided to finally get started on that sprite series I've been meaning to start up for nearly two years. For the past two months I've labored over this nearly half-hour long pilot episode, tried to export it as a YouTube compatible file (but my symbols just weren't coming out animated, so I hung that up...), and finally split the episode into four acts to upload here on Newgrounds. Pardon the lack of sound, I had some...hickups...with the music I wanted to use and my microphone died on me a few months ago (No, I will not be using Speakonia voices... Unless it's for Metal Sonic... Sorries...) Hopefully, you will enjoy it. (P.S.: Yeah, the next episode will have music and there will be spoken dialogue as soon as I can get a new mic. This is the tip of the iceberg, guys and gals.)

Episode 1: Losing and Finding

Sonic's dear old Uncle Chuck has died, leaving Sonic millions of dollars, a huge friggin' mansion, and a multi-billion dollar company. Meanwhile, a strange (and dweebish) green hedgehog named Ashura has appeared... WTH, SEGA?!! Are you on cra-- ...Oh...wait...no...It's a sprite series...

(These credits roll at the end of Act 4, but in the name of good taste I've placed them here for acts 1-3...and, yes, Danielle Freeman is me.)

All you need...

is sound... otherwise its really good!!!

youve really got something

the only reason im going to give you an eight out of ten is because you need o add sound or music. This is a great animation in itself and i was loving it but without music or sound it was just a little boring... You have really proven you can make an incredible film just make sure that you add sound to it next time okay mate?

Good animation...

...but without sound, music, etc, this movie can be really boring to watch at some points of the video. There was even a couple of times where I almost fell asleep due to lack of sound. Although, I did enjoy some of the animation you put in the movie.
