Decent entry

And once again you have presented another great entry the smoothness of the animation itself is what I have come to enjoy the most your stick like characters are very entertaining, I would Recommend a few things that could be Ironing out and Refine a few areas to make this flash more into a Victory but as I start this one up it was a good start of flash works.



And so... the new ones were born, the Blue and Pink and Red! :D No colors here, but I do feel like there's a certain resemblance, and continuity with regard to this and the future episodes. First one I see with the Creator really showing some remorse too... intriguing twists!


I have this feeling that this short is saying that art will never really die unless the creator destroys it, and it is very funny how he made the animation :)


You just never run out of creative ideas. It was cool to see how the pencil interacted. It really did seem sad. It’s an “it”, right? This website has become really slow for me. It’s probably just my laptop.

The sounds were as great as ever. The pencil seemed really intimidated at first. I like how it can feel like that. The characters still have the most emotion. It’s pretty dark for you.
