Even better than the first one, gee, we need more of that quality stuff. Pretty, please?
Wtf is wrong with this flash, only sound works. Eh.
-Now take those busty characters
-Use them in any submission icon on newgrounds
Well, I think if you feel like you reached a "plateau" in your skills, maybe it's time to get input from somewhere else. Instead of trying to draw from other drawing (cartoons), try painting from real life, like from photos. Take some art classes, buy some tutorials from gnomon workshop (or others, there is tons of them) in concept art or character drawing or something. Get some art books. You need to get a hold of "brushes" in digital painting, shading, light, perspective, color theory, proportions and all... there is a shit ton to learn. Doing the same thing over and over won't get you too far, honestly. Practice makes perfect, yes, but you need the theory first, then practice the hell out of it. Just my 2 cents, all the best, cheers!
Well, I never created any flash myself, but the right-click menu on your flash does have the "loop" option checked by default.. maybe you can change that in flash, before creating the swf? And then put a "replay" button in the last frame that starts back the animation, with as3 code?
LOL @ the cherry signing! Very nice music too.. o.O
Keep it up dude, looking forward for the full one! Really like the style.
Like everyone is saying, I think you're a bit hard on yourself. But then, your natural tendency to self-doubt (I'm guessing?), is probably why you got that great in the first place, so it's all good.
Because any long term project will slowly start feeling bland and boring to the artist, that's why you need a storyboard to quickly capture the ideas and emotions you want to express before it happens. It's perfectly normal to feel disgusted about your own project near the end, or even before, eh. The creation process is quite painful, at least for me, lol. One month isn't so bad, but still..
If you're really looking for a constructive criticism, and honestly it's only my own taste, is to make the main characters more distinguishable. Their appearance is quite similar, having only the hair style and color, which kinda change with lighting in the vid. Nothing a second play can't fix tho. Maybe that's the shot where I lost track of things: isn't the bullied at school dude supposed to be the one wanting to suicide? I know it work the other way around, but I think it would help make sense. A last one: half transitions to the next shot is too much information on screen for me, fade slowly, but I wouldn't let the last shot all the way in the next shot, if you know what I mean. It's like you're trying too hard to explain. Fading slowly can put a style on shots tho, so I wouldn't remove that.
Excellent work, looking forward to the next one!
Well worth front page!
Very nice job, you deserve that first place/front page.. !
So funny!! Can't stop watchin'
This is pure gold, thanks so much! It's true tho that the voice acting is amazing, even more so that this flash... but still well done! Fits really well! Thanks also to Axman13, for his obvious talent in NG comments... ^_^
