A flash of someone break dancing who is secretly uncle sam with anime glasses.

I'm probably going to redo this at some point and just continue the breakdancing part; this was for a school project based on the american dream. Uploaded for easy access!

And to show /co/ for feedback!

Oh, I had no idea how to create a loading screen since this was made in Pencil and not Flash ):



Rated 3 / 5 stars

A problem I encountered with this was the file size. Since this was made from a program other than Flash and you can't put a preloader, because of the file size, in turn a blank screen substituted for a loading screen, leading me to believe it wasn't working until I read some of the reviews.

Some of the animation looked jittery like it was redrawn every time. I'm not sure if this was intentional or not, for all I know, that could be the style you were shooting for. Music would probably suit this submission very well.

3/5 for potential.

Yeah, this was made in Pencil, and I had no idea if it was possible to set up any sort of preloader; if not, I'll just save up and get flash or something.

Oh, it did, didn't it? I wonder if there's a way to extend one key over the course of several frames. You're certainly right though, I think it looks a little ugly here. I appreciate your thoughts :D

You know! This was really fluid and interesting. Would have been better to post something like this one 4th of July, but anyway. I thought this was VERY cool despite it's length! Good work!!

Neat. Though it coulda been longer, (though you already know that). The drawings were pretty detailed and shaded and etc. Though not the best thing ever, its not bad.

Really didn't have enough substance to be worthy of passing.

SolidSpartan responds:

Could you, maybe, critque what's there instead of what isn't? This is my first serious flash animation, and I'm fully aware it's probably not very good at all. It's lacking a lot of things, including color, design, and even length, but it'd be nice if you could be constructive.
