EDIT: Thanks for the front page! :D

EDIT 2: The full film is finally up, and won 3rd place for Pico Day 2015! http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/656762

FrogMan and Pico is a 12 minute animated short film that I've been working on since January 13. I would have liked to have had it finished in time for Pico Day, but like with everything else, I'm horrible at meeting deadlines. But I do have some of the film done, so just to have something to present on Pico Day, here is the first scene of FrogMan and Pico!
Like I said, the full animation is 12 minutes long, this is the first 2 minutes of it, so clearly the plot isn't going to go anywhere in this scene. This serves as a teaser to the full film, a work to showcase today, and an attempt to get some interested in the project. I'm not done with the animation yet clearly, but I will continue working and hopefully within the next few months, I can finish it.
This also serves as a nice opportunity to get some early feedback on the art and animation, so be sure to leave reviews!
All that said, enjoy this look into what will become "FrogMan and Pico".
Happy Pico Day everyone!

I see that some of my advice was taken since my last review. You've added sound effects and the humor, the small amount there, was delivered well. The artwork is still a little rough and the animation was a bit choppy, but I still see that there was some major improvement from your last work I reviewed, for that I give you props.

However, I still see room for more improvement a common theme I've seen among your work is that a lot of the voice work is done by the same guy. The voice actor is good, it's just that I feel his recording equipment isn't. A lot of the lines delivered would often sound either very tinny or too quiet, which is a shame because the lines themselves are pretty good.

I can't wait for the full film and I'd like to see where you go and how you improve from here.

I have been looking into upgrading my mic, right now I'm using a cheap headset, but I plan to buy a blue yeti soon, so hopefully the quality of the recordings improve. Thanks for the review!

I like it i cant wait until part 2 and nice newgrounds portal joke XD

Actually, this was pretty good. It looked to be all frame by frame, so that's quite a feat.

I did have sound, so if anyone's having sound issues, there's sound in Internet Explorer 8, so switch over for a minute to view this one. That is, unless you ...are a ...[giggle] MAC person. OK,JK.

The sound volume was just a bit low, so once the neighbors started making noise, I had to turn it up a bit. There was a noticeable difference in the volume level between the two voices as well, but that can be adjusted in the future to make them more level.

This was pretty good, and I'm looking forward to seeing what they go do now. :)

artistunknown responds:

Yeah, it was all frame by frame (or for the most part anyways). It took me two months just to make this, lol.
I really don't understand what's causing the sound problems. It's worked for me in Chrome and Firefox, and I had a friend test it in IE9, but apparently it didn't show up... lol.
Sound volume is something I'm going to have to fix. I can't hear a difference with my crappy speakers, but I did hear a difference on my friend's computer, so I will definitely be fixing the voice levels.
There's another 10 minutes left of this, anything could happen ;). Thanks for the review :D

Aaaaaaaaand there is no sound T_T

artistunknown responds:

Well at least you didn't give it a 0! I really don't know what's wrong with the sound. Some people can hear it, some can't.

why is everyone rating this so low? the audio could use some work, but i can here it fine...maybe it doesnt work with certain flash and/or windows operators.

artistunknown responds:

Not everyone is rating it low, just some trolls and people who care so much about audio they forget about animation quality. Thanks for the fair rating, and I'll try to fix any audio issues in the full movie.
