Hi Golfinho!, thanks!!


Concept: Interesting, interesting enough to make me want to click this. While on the front page, I don't click most things. This caught my eye and made me think it would be an entertaining animation.

Art Style: Somewhat lackluster due to the heavy pixelation of the seemingly MS Painted Graphics. Not bad, but not the best. No shading and some colors were a little bright, but that's the style I guess.

Animation: Very choppy. From frame to frame it seems to jump around alot, and my theory is that this is mainly due to the lazy manner in which it was done. I mean no offense, but it's obvious by the shifting of the standing apple as a running animation that you didn't put as much work in as you could have. Around here we don't rate animations based on what we're capable of, but what the status quo is.

Sound: Unappealing. Not poorly done, just not something I enjoyed particularly.

Story/Thematics: This is one of the most important parts of animation. The thematics of your story and how it played out were extensively poor. In the first few seconds everything makes sense and the story begins to come together. In the next few seconds, it derails. Badly. The apple runs across the field of vision to behind a counter: Okay. He's trying to escape. He pulls himself onto the counter (be careful of those wiggly arms, that was extremely choppy and hurt my eyes) to be in plain sight and easy reach of the man, but thinks he is safe: Uh, what? He pulls out a knife and is easily able to insert it into his attacker. It was far too short and very uninspired. Try to thresh out ideas and really make a story. Animations and films without story and progression are not valued highly.

Overall: You didn't do too badly. I wouldn't say this is something that belongs on the front page, but I've seen (and rated) far worse. Make a few improvements and work harder next time. It's reasonably obvious that you didn't work as hard as you could have on this animation. Hold yourself to a higher standard. It's a great way to motivate yourself.

Thanks for the CC I'll keep it in mind for the next one :)

Was okay.

It had decent animation, everything seemed to move smoothly and all that. My only qualm is that he looked like a cherry, and his eyelids weren't red when he was shocked. It was okay, but it wasn't front-page material.
