Hey this is my latest installment in my Freddy the fish series, sorry it has no preloader but my version of flash seems to be too old to use the newgrounds preloaders. If this cartoon makes you laugh or even giggle than don't hesitate to watch my other Freddy fish cartoons.

not bad

but you sgoul've waited until july, not november. work on it while you wait.

I dont know...

Well the art suck, there was no story, and the animation was slow...
I guess draw something more inviting, make a story that is very interesting, and do FBF on some parts and not overusing tweens...
Just keep on practicing!
Add a preloader next time and put you sound to stream.

Yeah I certainly agree with you that this is far below the technical artistic standard of submissions that are positively received on newgrounds, and I would even say this is far below my own technical standard, if you care to watch my other, much older, non freddy fish cartoons you will see this to be true, but I wont be offended if you don't. When I was younger I put a lot more time into my flash.

My last four submissions have been a part of this freddy fish series, and my aim with them is too achieve contextual hilarity in the manner that flash lends itself to shoddy animation. I am grateful only that it passed judgement, and I certainly don't think I deserve a high score for this because I didn't work very hard on the technical aspects at all. After submitting it I personally felt that there were a few small things I could have done which would have vastly improved its presentation and reception without jeopardizing the stylization I was going for, but personally now that it has passed judgement already I don't think those improvements would have necessarily made it any funnier, so I don't regret neglecting to spend the extra half hour of work. I do think that what I created is very funny, and I will continue to produce more of these in the future, as I think these are worth sharing with the portion of users who at least see it the way I do. I personally am proud of what I made. I think this cartoon merits a great deal of appreciation, and I would not have submitted it if I did not think so. From my perspective it is a given that whenever I show this cartoon to someone, its merit is entirely literary and not at all due to any sort of artistic accomplishment or any grand demonstration of painstaking time and effort. I think it is close minded to judge a cartoon solely on how impressive of a technical feat it is, and to dismiss a piece of work which may present a valuable idea, or elicit a particular psychological response from a viewer, simply because it feels rushed or lazy.

The preloader thing annoyed me, as I am using flash mx 2004 on my laptop and I was surprised that none of the preloader files, to the best of my knowledge, would open when I downloaded them, and I dont have a saved version of the old pre loader I have used in the past because I made this on my laptop and most of my flash work is on my parent's desktop in another city. If I find myself unable to resolve this next time I do flash, I will undertake to follow a tutorial and make one myself, as I doubt it could really be that hard.

Well thanks for taking the time to watch it and review it, I guess that is all I have to say, and I hope you can maybe appreciate it a bit more now, at least in a lulzy sense, but if you dont I wont be offended.
