I'm glad to see that there are some new animators, but unfortunately there are a number of issues with some of the animations I've seen in this flash. First and foremost, however, I'd like to give kudos to liuzirui1122 for his fluid movement and attempts at trying something different, as seen in part 17, rather than just sticking to the "point A to point B while rushing through X enemies". Aside from him, however, the rest of you have the potential to hone your skills and do something great with Madness, and hopefully you'll be able to use this as a stepping stone to move onto bigger and better things. However, there are two general problems that I've seen not only here but in a number of collaborations, supported by the fact that certain animators are simply stuck at their current level of skill. Fear and ego are two dangerous factors to have and will either slow down your progress completely or even lead to worse displays of animation. For example, Juanford66 has changed, let alone improved, his style very little since I first noticed him. The gun movement is extremely unrealistic, he rarely decides to flip his characters' perspective (from viewing left to right, vice versa, this is a problem with others too as it leads to rushing through a scene and an ultimately boring fight), and it's not satisfying to watch his parts. He can improve, everyone can, but the biggest factor holding you back is the fear to try something new, to scrap everything you know and start fresh. Secondly, if anyone were to hypothetically respond with something like "My style is amazing, it's my own and that's why it's good! There's nothing wrong with it because it's my style!", they deserve a swift slap to the head. You may develop your own style of art and animation, but it's not "good" because you say it is, a style is good because it is visually appealing to the viewers of your animation or art. Sure, opinions may differ, but it's important to avoid the "this is epicz/awesums!" comments, suck up your ego when someone tells you that you're shit and put in every bit of your effort if you want to improve. From my experience, the only way I've been able to improve is constantly say to myself "This isn't good enough, I'm shit, I need to try harder and IMPROVE", accept the harsher criticism full hearted and thank away the nicer comments. In the end, I've encountered two types of animators; ones who are open to criticism and changing what they do, and others who will retaliate defensively and almost instantaneously at the first sight of criticism. Unless you've have some God-given gift at animating, ego is your worst enemy, and even then it can lead to a very negative reputation. So to wrap it up, drop your fear, don't let your ego build up, accept criticism and act as if it's right even though you don't 100% agree with it, otherwise you'll be stuck in your ways for the rest of your time as an animator. Good luck on improving, you all have quite a bit of potential, but you just need to get over a few bumps in the road. Afterwards, you'll be able to fine tune your style, art and animation, but patience is truly a virtue.
Holy shit, what a nice writer.
Well, you speak the truth, and yes i never say that i don't accept any negative critism, i was just wanted a comment... if it was dissapointing or something like that, to explain how and why they rate lower to maybe a another day to improve better on it, and i know that im a bad animation because delamortes is one i like the best at animation, and im conparing mine to their... and yea, this collab was unoriginal like others who existed staring 2009 probably. but i tryed, i accept critism, but i dont tolerate without reason, or yes maybe a simple madness haters. it now 1 year im animating and i see that i have improved, sadly not enough but maybe i will probably be better, maybe not? liuzirui1122 was the best, everyone know... and about others collaborators... such as... em well you dosen't say who dosent approuved at animation and they rested the same but im not in the cause of it, so tell them yourself... well i think your reviews this will be useful for certains, thank you for your descripted critism. once again i will try to improve more and gettin' better and better. well, that what i hope, i have somem difficulty with walking.
A heartwarming tale
The way you integrated their lives into sex and drugs was absolutely incredible. The effects made me feel as if I were actually there, too! And the ending was an extreme plot twist, I never saw it coming. By then, I was already in tears.
Amazing work, bravo, it should be shown in theaters!
I'm sorry, but it was way too short. The voice acting was well done, but my biggest issue is that you didn't have them as authors. That's kinda bullshit on your part.
Not very well animated and overall just not that good.
for the last time...... read the fucking description. i couldnt credit them because it say i needed to be flash buddies with them, i took down all their names and put them in the description until i get them to be my flash buddies
You can figure out that due to your shitty grammar and absolutely horrible tutorial that people WILL NOT or SHOULD NOT follow, you can just easily make a weapon from scratch! Right? Isn't that easy enough?
And for you idiots who can't figure out how to draw a straight line in flash, you can just as easily TRACE A RANDOM PICTURE! Right?
Now, here is where YOU went wrong.
First off, you appear to have absolute horrible grammar. Bad quality for an "animator".
Secondly, you can't be submitting animations, let alone TUTORIALS this early on. You should at least attempt to become decent in animation. Also, try not to rush on your work. After reviewing your profile, you really need help. In fact, as a personal recommendation, get rid of the profile and name, start anew. This time, try to take your time and make GOOD decisions.
That would be the hard, cold truth.
I liked it.
Fun little game with a different art direction. Nice job.
Fun little game
Cute little minigame. Also, beat ya you smug little fuck ^_^
This truly fooled me into believing it was a Pendulum song. Well made.
I love it. I just love it... Hysterical plot and ending!
Pretty damn good!
Y'know, it's bout time someone used this in an animation.
Seems to fit perfectly with mine ^_^
Cool, feel free to use this song :D, I'm glad u liked it :D
You need a bit more than simple two color shading. It also seems a bit shaky, so try to polish your art a bit.
The blurriness was intentional. And I'll try to use more colors, thanks.
A different twist on the original Bacon n' Eggs. I personally love it.
It's a unique design, and I hope it works out in an animation. Possibly work it into some sort of short animation? Either way, very nice.
it will work on a collab part and in madness streak 6
