I am terrible at meeting deadlines. Oh well, almost a week after Halloween isn't too late... right? Anyways, since my big Halloween animation was taking a bit of time to make, I decided to make a shorter one for now. This is the result. There was a bit of inspiration in this but eh, nothing you need to know about :3
This would have been out a lot sooner, but I got sick and had to deal with school stuff and flash decided to crash on Halloween, but in total I made this in a few days so it's probably not the best, but eh, I'm satisfied with it. Feedback is appreciated.

After watching the 'Frogs Around the Round Table' I was a bit surprised at the amount of detail in this, it looks great! The introductory title screen especially is really ablaze with color and light, really atmospheric, I like how it fades away and gets warmly fuzzy in the distance.

The sceneries were detailed as well, patches of grass and pumkins... and the scarecrow transformation real smooth. I'm thinking the moon could've had better lighting considering some other parts of the animation do use gradients (thinking of the sky there), and some form of luminescent glow would definitely make it more atmospheric. The crows are the best part in this, really add to the suspense, but when they fly up, the feathers fall to the ground unnaturally fast, maybe just let them hover even while the camera pans? For the ghost, bit strange the open mouth is the same color as the face. The main character also seems oddly flat when her face is revealed, and when she walks that left arm really stretches haha, overall it looks great but these small details could raise the tension another bar. Also, some form of darkness at the end would be pretty cool, a menacing shadow sweeping over the land more than just the morphing color? Keep up the great work!

I did take a lot of time to put in a lot of detail and color into this, I thought it would be a good thing to do since this was going to be so short, so I'm glad that shows.

Yeah, I was never really good with moon's though really recently I was watching how other flash animators did moons and I tried it and liked the outcome so I think I could make a decent moon though.

I did put a lot of time and effort into make the part with the crows seem suspenseful. The speed of the feathers has been noted, now that I think about it, yeah, that is pretty fast, feathers are kinda light, heh. If I ever animate feathers falling again, I'll be sure to get it right ;3.

I could have sworn I made the ghost's mouth inside a different color, guess not though. Not sure what happened there, I always use a different color for the inside of the mouth. I'm not sure what you mean by "oddly flat" unless like literally 2 dimensional, which if that's the case, it's probably due to the angle that she's facing the camera, I'm still haven't put a lot of time into proper perspective with my cartoons, but I do no how to so I should probably start doing that. And yeah, that fucking arm. Her arms were moving a different way before, I didn't like how it looked, changed it to swing subtly but they turned out looking like they stretched, hated myself, got lazy, and didn't fix it further. And as for the darkness in the end, the dark clouds did come in when the transformation was happening, but yeah, I didn't do a good job of showing that.

Thanks for the review!

And then he raped her with his wooden stick. *Hentai scene*

artistunknown responds:

Well, he can shape shift so I suppose it's possible for the stick to come back, but basically yeah, lol. Thanks for the review.
