Brother & Sister: Ep 4 - "Handguns"

Share Collapse

Episode 1: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/705595

The group is enjoying a normal lunch, until Alex pulls out his handguns. Then they don't enjoy it so much.

This was another piece of satire that has been biting away at me for years now, and it's finally done! It's short and sweet (I hope), AND it finally introduces Nicole, a character I've had on the drawing board since 2007. I can't believe how long it's taken to complete a piece with her! She's gone through at least 4 character model revisions (each time I have updated the main cast models, Nicole has received one as well, even though she's almost never been seen by anyone). Hopefully we'll get more of her soon.

Brother & Sister is a series about two teenage siblings and their friends as they all learn to deal with high school, the real world, and each other. The show explores issues through humor and satire, and of course through the slightly-less-jaded lens of youth.

The main theme is done by SAVESTATES (AKA BSMattW here on Newgrounds). He's awesome, check out his stuff.

No offence but it's confusing seeing you talk about revising character designs and having the idea for years with this being the end result.
Animation designed to be simplistic can work with context or if the writing, pacing and comedy is good, but it doesn't work here because there's nothing else going on. Dialogue is boring, jokes aren't funny, voice acting is bland etc.

Character designs are probably my least favourite part. Probably the most uninspired designs I've seen for a while, even if the animation style wasn't as simple as it is.
You've been doing this for a long time so I feel like you could do a lot better and considering this was released in February I hope you actually make something that's interesting and looks good.

This was the funniest BaS Short yet! Not only that, but the animation is improved!

Daily Feature! Congratulations! :)

Aqlex responds:

Thank you! I look forward to getting more episodes out eventually to see how they'll be received!

Once I saw video that was titled same way..

Aqlex responds:

Yeah, I've heard that a concept like this has been done with a similar title... but it was still just too good NOT to do it!
