A story all about the #1 voted most-popular character in TOME: Terrain of Magical Expertise...NNNYLOCKE! MASTER OF HAVING HIS OWN ANIMATED SHORT! One day, while patrolling around ;Lavendera on his own, Nylocke is approached by Demonking, who seeks aid from our hero against a bold new enemy...the sinister Serpentine! Can our hero triumph over evil once again?



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

If a guy loses fans because he's using too many stills instead of animations, then that reflects on the fans' attention span, not the artist's creative style.

And if that is the case, then that is a whole new low for this site....

I personally enjoy it when I see a mix of narration types, it keeps things refreshing and interesting. I'm not a big fan of seeing just one static method over and over. If a person can mix it up and keep it true to character, then it's fine by me. It's not a huge inconvenience nor is it distracting from the story.

What I would love to see improved is the overall inking and coloring of the characters. I noticed a bit more detail for the characters when they're in sketch form rather than the final product. If someone can help you out with getting that down, that would be interesting to see.

As usual your animations are entertaining, and littlekuriboh keeps giving me reasons to approve of everything he puts his voice in.

Keep up the good work.

This one was really great, because everyone loves Nylocke. He's just a goof. I'm glad you took time to elaborate on his part of TOME.

Also, to Zeina: I don't think the sketches are something he'll do too often, in this one they were meant to be overused because it's Nylocke's thing and this is Nylocke's episode.

Dude, you're getting way too happy with those sketches. Yes it highlights Nylocke's way of story telling but you need to tone it down a bit. You also need to come up with a real animation QUICK before you start losing fans. It was a good idea at first but now it's time to focus on animation instead of doodles.

Very good and entertaining short. It's especially comforting since you posted that TOME would be suspended indefinitely. If I could find a way to legitimately fund/support this project I would. I'm assuming that the pencil sketching was to save time, and that's not a bad thing. It adds drama and style. I do hope that you sort things out and get some spare time to continue your work on TOME when you get the chance though.

P.S. This is also meant to explain to the people complaining your situation that you posted.
