Bunnies on coffee
Ok, I'll have to admit- I'm not too sure where to start with this....
Firstly I admire the detail of your work- it's the airliner in the background during the 1st scene which shows your level of dedication to this project. Also the bullet holes come with a puff of dust, and change according to material, perspective and ammunition...
I could go on to fill this whole space with all the bits I like, but the moments I love which are truly awesome:
Rifles with a bayonet [knife] attached have been around a while- but seeing that sword with that gun on it, well congrats on designing one of the best weapons I've seen.
The shield play with the riot police added a new level to the violence, along with the comedic moment where Snowball pulls the shield back so it slaps a grunt in the face. Genius.
But the one moment that will always be remembered- because in that moment you made your audience feel true empathy for the character - was Smoke's cry
of pain as the coffee wore off.
So thank you for producing this violently awesome piece of art. It may of been two years, but it was two years well spend on your behalf, and well worth us waiting for.
[oh yeah, I showed this to a mate; he says that his rabbit does this when it drinks coffee, I don't know if its true - but the name kinda stuck, sorry]
Haha thanks. Btw that was Dust screaming, not Smoke ;)
Just one question...
How come we see the Saviour re-attach his head and hand in his leaving notice [part 6.5] when in part 6 we see him with head fully attached sweeping leaves by the train tracks?
I can see 3 main points that'll greatly improve your work;
1) Speed up the framerate; 20-30fps (frames per second) is a good speed for a flash animation. Your current speed is a bit to slow, and makes it look 'choppy'.
2) Use separate layers for the people walking, and the background- that way you don't have to keep redrawing the background for each frame! (There's a button to create new layers on the bottom of the timeline)
3) Don't use the brush tool for backgrounds- the line tool makes for easier adjustment and looks less sloppy.
That being said- the best thing to do is take your time- never rush it, and practice.
PM me if you want any more help- or use at the flash tutorials on here.
Thanks for the tips, and the tutorials I watched on Newgrounds never really went into depth with backgrounds so I just had to kinda wing it on this one.
Wow. Just wow!
As with the fist one, the graphics alone just blew my mind. The sheet amount of detail combined with the music creates a very deep atmosphere. Not to mention the animation is very natural and fluid. The whole game -though a challenge- does flow very well, especially as Sly powers up with magic.
The lack of a boss at the end was disappointing, but overall doesn't subtract from the game.
And guys- it is possible to get all the mushrooms and keys, some are very well hidden, and even with the blue sparks it's difficult to find them. Move slowly and you'll see an occasional spark rise from the floor of a cave.
It's a tower defence version of Guitar Hero!
You're almost there, but a game like this needs an option to use your own songs, or plug it into the audio portal like 'Newgrounds Desktop Radio' by PoderOdunk.
Apart from that everything else is brilliant- still earns itself a 10/10
What you have is a brilliant concept, and graphically the game is pleasing.
The sound fx are ok, but the bleeping can be a bit irritating after a while- thanks for providing a mute button.
There is room for improvement- hence 9 and not 10;
Put the instructions screen at the start- before the 1st play.
Adjust the controls so the game is mouse only (Right click for flag, double click to reveal adjacent squares.)
Some music would be nice too.
If you really want to go all out; the score should increase with difficulty, and some temporary upgrades wont go amiss either (X-ray mouse let's you see mines, pause the scrolling, 2X points ect...).
Integrate this with the medal system and you'll be on the front page for weeks!
what happened at the end?
The song was perfect (i mean perfect as in perfect- not perfect as in imperfect-but-a-hell-of-a-lot-better-
than-awesome)- right up to the last second- where it just randomly cuts out.
Apart from that- the rest was spot on, and very inspiring to listen too.
8/10 - it just that last second- what happened?
yeah i know. it was an error with the upload or something. i hadn't noticed it till just recently. i honestly couldn't tell you what had happened. but i'll re upload it and make sure it doesnt have the same problem. im really glad you liked it man. it's good to hear people in the states can appreciate good folk-metal. cheers!
Very Relaxing...brings life into focus
As a metalhead- i usually don't listen to this genre, and i have to say that I am pleasantly suprised by how much i liked this track. It made me take a step back and relax (for once). I'm not sure if i can repear my sky in one listening, but it repaired my headache in a few minutes!!
(btw a metalhead is someone who turns their stereo up full whack whenever they listen to any rock/metal.)
i am completly speechless because this is so amazing!!!
Well thank you sir.
This is different...
Most (dare I say all?) the art on NG is too similar- in the sense that it's always looks like it's drawn from an observer, I always feels like a '3rd person' who's just 'watching' it.
This is different, maybe it's just the slanted angle of the image- but looking at this I feel immersed, I feel like I'm standing on the bridge (or cockpit even?) of my skyship- hurtling towards the sunset, chasing that storm system.
This is different, this makes me feel a part of it, not sat on a bench watching it.
This is different. This is why I like it.
thank you! It's the best thing I've heard in my (short) drawing career :)
I can not be the only one who wants to try this
awesome. just plain awesome.
Need. Eye. Bleach.
As a piece of art- I rate this highly. You have a great talent, and expert brush control.
I cannot fault the actual quality of this piece. I just have to ask 'What on Earth possessed you to draw such a thing??'
Graphically- this is an epic piece, but contents wise- I feel sick.
