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
First off, there was absolutely no script or storyboard, was there? After that, I noticed that your voice was not comforting to say the least. It was horribly animated, dry of any humor what so ever, and overall this was something that I WISH I could have never seen. The "art" and "animation" was horrible, and it looks like you put a single day's effort.
Objection! I did in fact put TWO days worth of effort, not including the time it took to write the horrible script.
That was quite unexpected... Well animated, yet very much unexpected.
Enjoyable, yet I felt something was missing.
Still, good job.
Well worth the wait
I must say, I do appreciate the frame by frame effort you put into the Auditor. Good job Krinkels!
For the love of god...
First off, nobody uses pivot on newgrounds. Secondly, this is not the place to be posting tutorials.
Now onto YOU. Your voice is horrible, you use absolutely no correct grammar. Your commentary is so dry it makes YOU cough. The camera was horribly placed and that is not how you animate correctly. Even for pivot, you need to smooth your frames.
Overall, this made my mine full of fuck. Thing is, if you don't have flash, get the trial. I won't suggest anything else. As for your reasons or excuses, being sick and bored and having background noises are your fault. It does not lag, it is not a good program and it is YOU who is making the animation horrible, not anything else. It is not the lag, it is you.
Truthfully, I suggest deleting this submissions, getting flash, NEVER doing tutorials as of now, and try to improve. From what I can see, you are most likely under-aged and you really need to stop the pivot tutorials. This is being lazy. Oh, and you barely used a decent amount of frames. The frame rate at default is a horrible idea, and you are not funny at all.
ass hole I was sick that day you fucking troll
It was ok...
Truthfully, horribly animated, but it was a good try.
Made me laugh just a bit, but you need to improve.
Eh, its my first try. I'm learning.
You could have done better, but it was enjoyable at least.
Next time, try not to make your shorts so short.
it's for a colab so i had to keep it under 25 seconds. im working on something bigger that ill put up in te future.
