Great animation, work on your writing. Maybe not so rhymey ;)

Cthulhuzann responds:

It's from the book ;) Thanks!

Okay, so, this would have been a lot better if I could hear and understand the narration. The music and sound effects overpowered it though. The animation was certainly weird and unique. I liked the carnage, though it felt kinda weird as well. I mean, he was holding his gun up before he busted down the door, even though he had no one to shoot. His body movements were super weird, which is fitting. The headshot at the end was very satisfying. The first huy seemed to already be standing up when the main character came into the room, even though they were all sitting. But wow, that action looked uncomfortable. With weird poses and everything. I liked the way he made the symbol with the blood, but the table seemed to be gone, and so was the dick blood.
Overall, weird and unsettling, but would have been better if the narration was hearable and if the action was a bit more consistent.

Damn. I have a weakness for the Crow no question there. Love the poem backdrop. But wasn't the Crow forbidden to harm except in dire circumstances, and then only with regret? This Crow seemed as though he'd gone dark. But maybe I'm just soft. Love this. Want more like it, if a little less vindictive and a little more heroic. (I'm a love and rainbows kinda girl, I like my antiheroes just a tad more compassionate) I know, I know.

Cthulhuzann responds:

The first series was a revenge story but you are definitely correct that the later stories were much more heroic in nature. I'll keep your suggestions in mind for my next projects.

Not bad, a bit of polishing, and you can become a successful animator!)
Also, audio needs some quality adjustment too.

Poetic. :) Don't recognize the main character there (looks a bit like the Joker?), but I do recognize the name, and as such it had me confused a bit... is this based on something official? Anyway it's all stylishly done, though narration quality's a bit gritty. Nice work.


Cthulhuzann responds:

The character is The Crow from a graphic novel written in the late 80's. It was adapted into a movie in the early 90's starring Brandon Lee who unfortunately died just before the film was finished. Thanks for watching and voting. I appreciate it!
