My first proper attempt at a full Flash animation.

Blue is off for a run in the forest, but when he collides with a young girl picking flowers, can he help set things right?

to be honest, is pretty good, for just a moment i thought it would be a simple animation, but after i see it... i can't find the right words to say it.

i sense a shining future on you. But of course, that depends on the dedication you give
on your animations.

the ending was a little confusing with a little lack of common sense
[but we are talking about a robot(?) in the middle of the forest giving a
strange eye to a girl, so common sense is something i sould never say.

Anyway the charatchers were kinda simple, same as the sound effects
but the music and the background were...beautifull

To be honest, i enjoyed and i love your first animation.

While the last minute or so doesn't quite meet my tastes (but this is of course purely subjective feeling) I very much liked the serene introduction with the firebug zipping around.
That scene reminded me of http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view /276841 and its successors.

Hm, not bad for a start. Now I'm no animator but I can see a few things. Now, you gave a bit of mystery at the start. A robot running away, what was it running from? The girl, is she a robot as well since that eye came out? Maybe a bit of text, you don't have to use dialogue but if you're going to keep it short try to put a bit more emphasis on interaction, talking is a good way to emphasize it. You could splash in a bit more color, quite a bit of green and brown along with yellow. But still good for a start.

The grafics are great but the movie is very short

I was planning on making it longer, but I couldn't decide how to end it.
I'll try to make the next one a bit longer :)

If this is your first attempt for real than I will say this is actually pretty good. Keep working on it and I'm sure you'll make some really good flash

Thanks for the comment :)
