I have to agree with the reviewer below me (dabproductions) about the possibility of making the scene seem 'hotter', but let me give you an actual review!
Here is what I enjoyed:
- VERY much so like your use of color. They were bright and captivating, and I especially liked how you added a slight sun-burnt tinge to the man's face. I enjoyed your use of shading as well.
-The sound was just fine for me, and didn't sound tinny. If you were to make improvements in the future, I would perhaps change the 'distance' of the voices used; for instance, he sounded exactly the same when he was far away as he did when he was up-close. Just a suggestion though, and not anything I'd subtract from the overall score! Your sound effects were nice, too.
- I enjoyed your artistic style; the man looked believable for his situation, everything matched well and you showed a distinct style. I also really loved how you included his footprints in the desert sand. Not a lot of people on Newgrounds really go through that extra effort, and it was refreshing to see such a minor (albeit appreciated) detail.
- Your animation was well-done. I really liked your close-ups, particularly after the man discovers the well and you've zoomed in on him saying 'water' -- that was perfect.
-I loved your concept! Shorts like these are nice and really easy for me to watch. The idea of having this man looking for cool, refreshing water, and getting a mouthful of salty, water-deprived pretzels was really clever of you. I like how sudden you delivered your ending, too. Not drawn out, just plain and simple. Great execution.
-I love your comments on the reviews -- nothing to do with your animation, but extremely humoring to read through!
Well, besides the sound thing I brought up (which is just for improvement and isn't really what I'd consider an 'issue'), I'd say just sharpen up on your in-betweens to make your animation smoother (it is already pretty smoooooth!), and continue developing your skills! You show a lot of promise and are already miles ahead of so many other Flashers on Newgrounds. I hope you make other shorts like these in the future, because you are good at them. I'm absolutely sure your skills will only get better and better, too. Keep at it!
