Come on, guys, I improved a lot since my "MAJOR" series...I'm getting there...once I practice some more and work on my audio files, I might even surpass DarkYagami321...

This video is a test for a method of animating DarkYagami coined "Human-Engine."


Amazing animation, interesting artstyle, im very impressed.

If you thought this was awesome. Check out the latest movie I made ;)

10/10 animation
I like your type of arts
but why the hell with the ending song? it doesn't make sense

It fitted my emotions at the time :/

Not bad. Definitely room for improvement. You used a unique style of art that I thought was refreshing to see and the idea behind the story seems like a good one. Things progressed slowly though, particularly the fight scenes. The dialogue seemed to try to make the scenes more intense than the an animation made them appear. Keep things moving quicker and support what's going on with animation that is equally as intense, and that'll improve the quality a whole lot. Also, the constant camera shots shaking around was a nuisance. You had some good camera angles for the scenes, but the movement ruined that aspect. The voice acting could use some work as well, to capture the intensity of what is going on and the personality of the characters.

I see a whole lot of good in this animation, and a whole lot that can be improved upon. What you have here is a diamond in the rough. Smooth out and carefully craft the rough edges, and you'll have a real beauty of an animation series to be proud of.

Thank you, Zaxterion, I'll try to meet that expectation. :)

My voice was a little weak, but I love it. :)

LightYagami123 responds:

Awww. Thank you, Natapink. We'll improve next time around. I was going to make this a short series (3 episodes), but It seems to be doing better than previous projects. So, if this project passes the bar, then I'll definitely continue this... :)

Are you using anime studio? I ask that because it looks a bit weird at some parts, like at 3d transitions, the characters will morph and contort in in strange ways. To get around this, you can just animate stuff like head turns and spin kicks frame by frame, that's what I would do, at least, although it might be difficult with anime studio, I've never used it myself, so I can't say for sure.
I like the style of characters & animation, it's unique to see that kind of drawing style with rotoscoped movement. This is true except for the mouth movement, it's a bit distracting, and unrealistic, and it kind of looks like you may have used the auto lip-sync tool (if your using anime studio). To get around this you could either draw each mouth position according to its sound or have a set of mouths that you drag onto the stage, say for an "oo" sound, you would drag in a pair of pre-made lips that contort to make the "oo" sound. It's like symbols in flash, but I don't know if anime studio has anything similar.
As well as that, your audio quality could use some work. Perhaps better voice acting and something to dampen the background noise?
The story is engaging as well, so, overall, good job!

I used Anime studio once, but a friend of mines said that I'll get better reviews if I used Flash. I just animated the fighting scenes. DarkYagami321 used Anime studio for this project. :)
