You have an nice art direction going but I think you're a bit too influenced by Egoraptor. I hate to say it, cause people always say it. I feel it's obvious in this case, though. Because the puns, the style of voice acting and animation has a really close resemblance to Egoraptor.
I would also suggest that you put some more effort into the actual animation than just doing keyframes.
Good point made though. I can relate to that. The flash just wasn't coming from a genuine place.
I remember when this stuff used to be funny.
Well, I see what you're trying to say here. However, you make some very weak arguments which makes this animation fall very flat, because that's the entire core of the animation.
The only valid points that you brought up is that it has been running for too long and that they are squeezing the very last drop out of the thing, which I kinda found at least bit funny. Apart from that, all the stuff about it being "just a sponge" makes no sense. Animated characters does not have to be animals, there's been a heap of amazing animations with a list of different objects.
Apart from the message, the animation wasn't very strong either. I kind of wish it was since you seem to have strong opinions about animation today, which makes me think that you'd be eager to show off a lot of effort.
I guess I had higher hopes for this. Try a bit harder next time.
Great storytelling, outstanding animation and a very much flawless piece overall. I don't have anything else to add to this.
This was really good. Very nice animation and the joke wasn't predictable, it made me laugh.
You should probably consider working on the background elements in your work because I feel like you could push the depth quite a bit. By adding overlapping layers of objects (foreground, mid-ground and background being the main three) you could boost up the animation a lot. You might think that these things are such small things, that people wouldn't even notice them but they actually make more of a difference than expected.
Thanks! I understand what you mean with the backgrounds and stuff, and at first, I wanted to incorporate a lot more detailed and complex backgrounds. Unfortunately I let most of the background work go until near the end of the deadline, so I didn't get to do a lot of what I wanted to do with them. Thanks for the tipzzzzzz!
I've always liked your animations, it's certainly nothing to point out there. However, I do think you need to work on your storytelling. I understand that you have a thing for goldenage cartoons but I feel like you have borrowed too many jokes and ideas from that time. It gets a bit too predictable.
Also, don't you think your character would work better mute? I think you'd achieve more personality with that character by just using body language and it'd create that sort of feel that I've been seeing you trying to pull off.
Just my two cents. Please keep making projects, man.
So is Paul going to be the main animator now?
I think that's a marvelous choice, I haven't seen anything by him in a really long time and his skills does the series justice for sure.
Gonzo, I love your work, a lot. But rape is a really touchy subject. Personally it did throw me off quite a bit myself. Looking passed that aspect, it's really good.
But you know, it's all up to you. Maybe a warning would be suited?
Nice flash you've got there.
