UPDATE: Uuuuh, front page?? Thanks a ton. :] And thanks for all the votes and reviews and advice. I've updated the movie with subtitles to make up for over processed audio garble.

My first newgrounds entry ever, as well as my first animation in years. It was made in part to get myself playing around with Flash again. It was also so I could get some sort of little intro for this story I've been working on, but have no intentions of animating(if it were, the style would be way different. Frame by frame awesomness that I'm not capable of now). Therefore this animations raises faaaar more questions than it answers. I worry that it won't stand too well on it's own because of that, but hey, twas a good exercise and stuff.

My apologies for the Frankenstein-esque mess that is the narration. I compiled all the clips in the most unorganized way ever, so in the end it turned into a hodgepodge of different volumes, voices, effects, and noise that was hard to fix after the fact. Blargle. Welp, lesson learned for next time.

So yep, I'm no animator(nor a voice actor, apparently), but it was fun to do. So will probably try some more stuff in the future...with less vibration inducing textures...and better audio.

I definately am impressed

I like seeing this kind of dark, gothic style one in a while. It does intrigue me to see something so twisted but yet so appreciative.

I did like the cutout animation, it's as if your telling a story using puppets and whatnot. The black and white color fit perfectly aswell. I also like how the screen flashes to something sinister and creepy.

I am turned off by the narration itself though. I guess the different pitches and tones in the recording made it hard to watch. You have the right voice and everything, but it just needs better quality.

But overall, I did like watching this. Nice work.

... i wish i was smart enough to know what happened-- but

this was great-- and i wish i could animate as great as this!

i love the detail- and the style of your art!

the story- to me-- just.. makes me want to know more- a cliffhanger? not really.. but still-- it's one of those stories that'd make some one that's interest want to follow you through and through-- i guess i'm a loyal fan now x]!

@KLawter are you going to make a "The Two Princesses" part 2?

Fairly Impressive

This was a really well told story. Everything came together well here, and interestingly, the poor audio quality may have worked in your favor (making the story spookier)! I don't think it's too much to say this animation qualifies as art, I mean real art. If this is your first animation, then I can't wait to see what else you come up with!

I think its abosultely awesome. I love the Alice in wonderland art work style its simply makes the story that much greater.
All in all its an awesome submission.
