Adrellia Village: School

Share Collapse

Author Comments

Ever since the beginning of the school year, I've used the characters of my series, "Adrellia Village" for many school projects. Some of them are around here as solo submissions while others have never been submitted to Newgrounds.

As a result, I decided that I should put them together in a collection. "Almandines n' Stuff" is already here, but it's also packed with never-before-seen animations such as "China in the Middle Ages" and "Veteran's Day." I feel it's necessary to provide some backstory.

"China in the Middle Ages" was supposed to be an extra-credit history animation, but time ran out so I only got the first minute done. Still, I'm proud with its execution and am sharing it with you here.

"Almandines n' Stuff" was an assignment we had for advertising gems.

"Veteran's Day" was a very last-minute project. I was given permission to do an animation rather than a plain old poster and only had two hours of time to complete it, so some of the animation is rather unpolished.

I hope you enjoyed watching this as much as my teachers and classmates did, so please leave a review!

thank you

Hm, I think you put those flashes in the wrong order. You should've started with "Veteran's Day" and then "Almandines n' Stuff" followed by "China in the Middle Ages". That way, the graphics and animations would become better with every collab entry.

Now, you start of with the best entry and finish off with the very unpolished and unfinished Veteran's Day.

Also, a menu would've been nice, from where we can select the single flashes. You could've also provided the backstory in the flash itself if you had put in a menu screen.

This did not seem to be too bad although the last one you did seemed a little different since it suddenly changed to just having their mouths open with no movement at all. I guess that was meant to be practice for adding in a voice and timing. The second one is meant to be an advertisement correct? And the first one is a short quick thing about China in 221 AD.

The graphics were pretty good although they are always the same which is great to do with a series since changing art style sometime during the series would just throw things off. Then the voices are all good as well. Nice to see sonicmega made a cameo in this one during the second project in this flash.

Overall, interesting set of three.

Well, the characters seem a bit uninspired, you could have done atleast something to set them apart from the Cyanide & Happiness characters. The last animation would have been better left out since it greatly reduces the overall impression you get when you watch the movie. All in all should have waited a few days to get this out and polished the living shit out of it.

It must be a slow day in the portal today with this getting Daily Third. No offense but if you had polished this thing better and had some original characters I would have thoght you deserved it.

Interesting. Lots of people say that my characters bear great resemblance to Cyanide & Happiness, but it'd be weird to change them significantly since I've already produced 40+ episodes with them. I'm not sure what to change other than possibly add shading, shadowing or at least some sort of distinguishing quality.

No offense taken, thank you very much for your review!

It was alright. The voice acting was just ok. The old man didn't sound old man-ish if you get what I'm saying..but other than that the story was ok as well...just needs something else...
