~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Some fancy effects would be nice
Thanks Man, I appreciate it.
I do have one in production ;)
This is just as great as the others but it's a bit too short in my opinion. Rather than starting with the trial, it should've started with the protagonist loving her baby, then hanging out with the false friend, possibly show why the false friend is betraying the protagonist rather than just have her do it without any motives, and then have the protagonist stumble upon her dead, possibly cannibalized baby with her false friend falsely accusing her and get arrested by the police. After that point, the rest of the animation should be kept exactly the same and all would be swell. Also, unlike the protagonist, I would find it very hard to forgive a child murderer, particularly if it was my child that was the victim. I guess that would mean I would not get any of my finger bitten off if I was in that scenario. You did an amazing job with this and I wish to see more from this story. Kudos to you.
Yeah I agree, I should have built up the connection. Thanks, when I made the first one I did have plans for four in total.... Then again every animated film of mine on Newgrounds (excluding Truth Hurts and Shallow Soil) I have plans for additional films and haven't made them. We shall see...... :)
Seems like I must indeed watch the previous two for this to make any sense. :) It's great though, brutal, but also so symbolic, with the fear of the unknown, the forgive and forget, the do good does good and some evil is just evil... and though you do mention what the symbolism shows I'd like to interpret it in a less-religious context, of the consequences of what we do and what we choose to do; understanding, regardless of what we believe in. Nice work!
Yes you really do need to watch the previous ones and Thanks Cyber devil ;)
Another meaningful message from the teachings of Christ.
Forgiveness is indeed a noble emotion and honorable alternative to hate.
Yet, I feel there is such a thing as "too forgiving", especially to those that don't truly deserve it.
The idea of just letting the sins and wrongdoings of such people slide without proper repentance just makes me really uneasy.
It comes with the Christian understanding that we all fall short from being good people. And those who choose to follow Christ realise God forgave us of all our crimes against Him, so we forgive those who sin against us.
Christians should also have discernment, like not getting their hands too close to an unrepentant cannibal... but ultimately trusting God for judgement over people not ourselves.
Thanks for the comment man :)
If only Christians would act as Jesus did. I like this, good portrayal of mercy, and forgiveness, atleast thats what i got from it, I go with the notion "forgive, but don't forget." so i would still have my fingers. Overall a 4 1/2, the animation could definitely be better.
Thanks man. Forgiving doesn't mean forgetting but actively choosing to leave things to God or you'll grow bitterness in your heart. But yeah use wisdom too and keep your fingers ;)
