i'm the white dragon now.

thanks for all the liking of the concept of this flash.

the woman involved is no longer who she once was.



Rated 4 / 5 stars


The best thing about this flash is how you could make the whole story with just three colours. The dragons were pretty simple, but because of how they stood, interacted with each other and their behavior I could undersand who was the "male" and who the "female", what they wanted from each other and their emotions.

The music fitted just nicely too. I could write a review about the music too, but I'll leave that to another time :). Long story short: it was slow enough and simple enough to fit with the flash, but not loud enough to distract me from looking.

The only thing which I hoped for something better was how the story wasn't worked out good enough. It's a pretty good and simple story, and that's what makes this flash really good along with the style you have, but I hoped for more interaction between the two dragons. Or at least more of an explanation about the whole story.
After the flash ended I still had some questions, like how fire could kill a dragon, why the white dragon could pass through white stuff at the start but not through the wall.

What you have is amazing though. I really enjoyed watching it.

why wouldn't fire kill a dragon? where would you find such evidence that in this world a dragon (a mythical creature not in biological studies) wouldn't be flammable? breathing fire just means that you'd have to project flammable propellant and strike a spark. only the dragon's mouth would be resistant. therefor, its a suspension of disbelief. go with it bud.

as for the intro... yeah, that is a little glaring, but its so minimal that i honestly didn't think it would matter in the context. nice catch actually!

thank you for the wonderful review!

very nice.

a lot of people claim to be crying. maybe that's true. if it is, there are some fairly emotionally unstable people here. :)

jokes aside, it is really lovely and well done. it's a shame it's very short.. but i guess this wasn't ever really intended for public release. your wife must have felt very special.

it's a touching story, told many times before perhaps, but played out very simply and from the point of view of a creature we don't often attribute 'love' to. as an animation now in the public eye, i personally felt the tear on the dragon at the end was a bit too much.

i gave it an 8 because i felt like the tear makes it more cheesy than sad. i felt like the story was a lot more true to the emotions it's trying to stir up when the dragons were communicating their feelings with a dip of the head, or shutting an eye.

anyway, it's really lovely.

Horsenwelles responds:

well without a tear (being the only cliche i knew would arise) the audience would end on a more confused note than tragic. if it wasn't there, the audience wouldn't really know that he died until after it was over.

anyway, thank you so much =D
