The flash is about an ant and his curious attempt to pluck a small flower from the ground. It was very short, but acknowledging your animation skills and talents, it is fair that the story does have a beginning, middle and end while providing a very minor amount of satisfaction.
The best thing about flashes, or any form of visual entertainment, is the idea. The best thing about your idea is that it generates a mild amount of emotion. Good flash artists understand that their idea must be more than just a visual spectacle. But, the whole expression of your idea is extremely limited and you need to develop it further by providing a character which generates long term interest. You can do this by making the character your mascot.
However the real negative issues are with your graphics. They are of a basic standard, although not so basic that they fail to create an environment. YouâEUTMve added environmental details such as the grass fern and a background layer, although you really need to concentrate on better ground texturing. You can achieve this by spray canning sand, gravel or manually making many waves to show layers.
The big improvement you need to make is to the detail and animation of your character. Frame by frame, the character appears to move properly, but because of the lack of texturing it often appears to move as one, almost as a blob. You need to focus on making the creature move as if it has a skeletal structure, otherwise it seems unspectacular.
Your audio is actual a high point. The music indicates a positively humorous environment, and your high pitched voice effects are surprisingly convincing and perfectly timed. Honesty I donâEUTMt have any recommendations for improvement.
Overall itâEUTMs clearly the work of an amateur, but a determined amateur, one who understands the principle of creating a plot and a story, even if its length is extremely limited. It would be amusing for young children, and itâEUTMs mildly amusing enough for a couple more rewatches, but it is only your style, not your quality, which is shining through. However for forty hours of animation itâEUTMs struggling to reach even a mediocre standard, but you should be proud that it is somewhat watchable and entertaining.
