Take a hint from Madness Redeemer
It's not the graphics that matter-they just have to be clean-it's the animation! Drawing a picture in flash, chopping it up, and tweening the parts just doesn't cut it. In technical terms, Madness Redeemer was the polar opposite of Ina- instead of painstakingly drawn graphics running at 4 fps during the fights, he had little sack-men running at 30 fps, and man, do they move!
Of course, you can go for BOTH animation and graphics, ala Genryu's Blade, Ninjai, or Kong, but I guess your skills just doesn't go that far.
And before you accuse me of hypocrisy, of putting down others when I can't flash myself, check out the entry "Yukino" under my name.
