Voice acting, a cringe worthy 2
Total average: 3 Stars
Anything that's worth doing, is worth doing right, and your length is not right at all.
Many new animators make the mistake of wanting to "put something out there" as quickly as possible, so they rush to finish their projects, and we get things like this very short animation.
I don't know how long it actually was(I didn't count) but it felt to be around 30 seconds.
Now, I'm not saying all animation NEED to be long to be good, but I'm saying that in your particular case, a lengthier animation was necessary.
There was no exposition, no plot, no resolution, no climax, and no punchline.
The only characters that seemed likable in this case, where the seals.
If you plan on making more of these, here's a couple goals you can work towards.
2-4 Minute animation. This will give you enough time to provide an actual story, and an actual climax/punchline.
Find, and colab with, another voice actor. I'm not saying the voice acting here was particularly bad, but both wizards sound the same, that's a big no-no. You could at-least try to use a difference voice register for each one.
Your animation is fluid, and your art style is... well... your own. Not particularly good, but also not bad. Keep practicing.
I won't criticize your comedy, because that's a matter of personal taste. However, seals slapping men is under no circumstance, 'a good punch line'.
TL;DR: Don't rush to upload an animation within a month of starting. A good animation can take more than 6 months to make! Don't publish something, until you are absolutely SURE that it is done.
Show it to your friends and family before you finish, and listen to their opinions, and make edits accordingly.
Anyway, hope to see more of you in the future.
Is this in any way inspired by Dr. Goku's show(consultorio del Dr. Goku), by Raul Barrera? Or is there more than 1 person who would like Vegeta to be a proctologist.
I remember when people would freak out over a 3000kb submision. I wonder how many brix would be shat over THIS entry. Haha.
But anyway, a very nice, fluid, animation.
I don't know you, but the entire thing felt really intimate, if you where going for something a bit more "you", you've succeeded.
The music was perfect as-well, thank you for showing it to me, I've hadn't heard it before.
OK, for some reason this is 5MB large haha...
Just a few tips, don't make your animation have a large resolution, 640x480 is pretty much the maximum you should aim for, remember newgrounds can re-size your animation to enlarge it, and you wont loose any quality because flash uses vector graphics.
Secondly, you just used the 12 frames per second default setting on your flash program, try increasing it.
24 frames per second(FPS) renders a fluid enough animation, however you should always aim for something like 60FPS.
I see you used Tween, and did some frame-by-frame animation, no opinions there, we all have our art styles, it was nice, but really, increase the frame-rate or it just ends up looking like a picture slideshow.
I knew the optimum is 24/fps but I totally forgot about changing the default when I started making it! I'll definetely change it in the future. Also, I drew all the frames in an external program at 1024x720p since I dislike the 'smoothness' of vector art.
I'll be sure to keep these in mind for next time, so thanks a lot for the advice!
Not bad at all, good enough to give it a 5/5 a 10/10 and add to favorites.
No, not bad indeed.
However, i would love to see what you can do to the FMA OST "Lapis Philosophorum". No one seems to be able to get the translation quite right :/
404, Title Missing
You really put the bass in my headphones to the test here, they passed, and so did you btw.
Funny, my first flash was an animation of a dancing cactus and a jumping bean dressed as mariachis dancing and jumping to "Taco-bell dog" by S.P.M.
Why must first animations be racist? xD
My mind is completely, absolutely, and without a doubt blown beyond repair.
I simply cannot believe that i had neglected to watch this fantastic film for almost 3 years.
This is by far the best animation i have seen on this, or any other site, and dare i say, it is the very best animated short period.
This flash does not 'rank with the Elite', this flash SETS THE BOUNDARIES between Eliteness and Godliness.
I must thank you both, James Lee and Hania. For you, with your amazing creation have blessed all that constitutes my eyes, my ears, and my, now blown, mind and very existence.
I really honestly hope for the good of all humanity that trough the years this flash has been awe-ing us, you and yours have been working hard on a feature length presentation!
No! Even the Silver Screen is not worthy of such as This!
I AM NOT WORTHY!
Manly tears have been shed,
no further review is necessary.
I honestly was not expecting 'El Canaca' to show up in the middle of the flash.
I had allready given it a five, but after hearing those famous "Me amarraron como puerco!" words i couldn't help but to add it to my favorites.
Amazing flash, one of my favorite Zelda series.
Let me see if i got this straight...
You mean to tell me the world ends because Tetris?!
