This is pretty amazing. I do hope that there's a sequel to this despite three years having passed by since its creation.
An excelent little flash. Although some of the animation was a bit rough it looks like the start of something exceptional and I hope to see more of your work in the future.
Thank you. I hope to make better animations in the future. :)
Good job but it looks unfinished.
Well, it's just very hastily thrown together I guess. Most of my animations have an unfinished look...jsut because I don't have the time or energy to work any more on them. But thank you very much.
IT ALL REMINDS ME OF A DREAM I HAD...
This video is just marvelous!!!
It has a good story, great fantasy, I'm just a huge fan of dragons since childhood, with my silly dreams of riding one (since I can't, I'm gonna get one tattooed XD).
The animation is really good, even if it is sloppy, it goes really well with the fantasy-telling style. The light colors work very well with the music, it has this amazing bond animation-song that one complements the other having a huge greater effect upon the viewers.
And last but not least, the music. It's marvelous, gorgeous, it is also kind and delicate, with this great feeling of freedom. Besides, the story Ms. Ashley wrote for the song it's just perfect for it's elements. With the strings and harp, giving a sweet mood to the environment of the song, although the flute gets a little repetitive like a ostintato leading in the first stage. But nonetheless it's a huge piece of artwork worth of an animation.
It all reminds me of a dream I had a couple of years ago, one of the few I can remember, although it wasn't a dragon, but more like a huge 2 stories pegasus.
Thank you so much for your work, hopefully you'll be doing more like this one. And keep it up, always up, both of you.
It is good to see another dragon fan. I live to draw and to animate them. Also good to know that someone else has awesome dragon dreams. And a dragon tattoo? That's amazing! If I ever got a tattoo, that's what mine would be too! :D
Thank you so much, Erick!(I think that's your name, lol) I'm so glad to hear its effect on you, wonderful to hear also, that the animation compliments the music. I really drew all inspiration from that music, trying to time everything perfectly. And it is one tune that never gets old. Hearing this review, and knowing that I accomplished all that I was trying to accomplish, brings me so much joy. I'm very grateful. And I'm sure that Ms. Ashley would really appreciate your kind words as well. Indeed, her song is a real work of art.
Thank you for such an intricately detailed and wonderful review, friend.
That dream you had sounds like a good one....very imaginitive.
I am honored to inspire such people as yourself. Thank you again for taking the time to plan out such a well thought out review. Bring me joy and tears. I plan to keep inspiring others with my gift, as I know Ashley always will too. It honors me to cater to wonderful people like you. And keep watching. There will be more stuff to come. :)
Nice choice of music.
Water animation good.
Trees and flurries very well animated.
Depth perception is B+.
Walking animation needs LOTS of work.
Grass and ground needs more dimension.
Audio cuts in and out spastically throughout.
Title "Mystic Forest" is quite unoriginal.
Hair needs more frames than 3 bobbing up and down, and changing size and place in the frame.
Layout needed, like a title menu and an ending menu.
Voted a 7/10 for hopes that it will improve the next time.
Well, thanks for taking the time to critique. I know this looks kind of cruddy, but it was just a quick something I threw together in my spare time for fun. I know that the walking animation needs a lot of work. I've never been any good at walking animations, and that was quickly thrown in anyway. And I agree on the grass and ground. I can't help the audio. It is just a glitch in the software rendering. I'll admit, I got very lazy with the hair and all. Stuff was taking forever, and I'd rather a sloppy frame by frame than have it flat with just tweening, like most folks do. I don't use flash to make my stuff, so I could not have a menu. Anyway, thank you. I don't know if there will be any improvement. I've always been a really horrible artist. I just animate for fun. :P
