For all of those who have doubted me and my work and told me to post a preview and stuff. I decided i'd post a thread that would host my animations (or links to my animation)
This one is relatively old, and i'm sorta a noob at flash:

(i'm remaking it, and it isn't finished)

But tell me what you think of it :D

(yes i know they suck, i need constructive criticism)

kk, first things first.
i assume you got the idea for the changings of colours from black vs white.
dont use it. it doesnt look good. it makes it confusing. i couldnt remember who was who. When jc did it he made it very clear who was who still.

Second- that took ages to load... probably due to the site? Not sure, but use trupload.

I reckon it was ok animating. I bit small- zoom in and use a bigger brush size to get the sticks more accurate.

When you add the sound to your library, right click the sound and do some stuff that I forgot.

but orang bg + orange guy = fail

also what's the music?

Yeah, i tried v-cam, but the first and like 9th line are apparently screwed up even though i took it from a tutorial...
so if someone could send me a v-cam, then that would be awesome :D



and as i said, this is an old project which i have left for ages, but when i get my wacom tablet, i'll get on it... cos i don't wanna do any more work with the mouse, i hate it.



I watched it and I couldn't find the skills.....

yeah, that's what i call being a jackass, this is twice as good as any noob ass flash out there and you know it... so if you can tell them there's is good, why can't you find anything in mine?

no, i actually wasn't on this site when i made this, i've always liked the colours blue and orange, i got the idea from my halo 3 character called Orange Blob, he was orange and blue... i then found out via using paint that blue is the alternate colour of orange, so it just worked out.... i then alternated the colour of black, but i didn't think it would be enough, so i'm making a red guy too.....
i haven't even seen a white vs black
sounds tempting though :D

No, that is a noob animation, first of all, you used the NG preloader, meaning you didnt even make a button for your animation...

Two, the begining is all just tweens, nuff' said yo.

Three, the movments have no gravity or easing so it looks like crap.

Happy now? That IS a noob animation.

yes and you're a complete asshole...
did you not ****ing read the first part, it said i was a noob when i made it, but it is a hell of a lot better than those pieces of shit you see in the stick page portal everyday
happy faggot? :D

I bet you were completely crap when you started, well i've just started, now think about that instance when everyone gave you shit cos you sucked, much more than this, now try to be nice, and actually try to have a heart... and you're crap! you're crap at communication skills and you can't even give constructive criticism, so quite frankly you're the person who sucks now :D

and i am going to change the beginning, this wasn't a proper animation anyway, when i made it, i wanted to get better at flash, it was merely practice, unlike the shit you are! :D
ha :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

and i'm making a proper button and menu, don't suppose you ever got bothered with that, i guess you're just lazy :)

yeah i know, i'm making a different loader (i don't like using the ng preloader, just ng states that it likes to have it's logo, so i'll probably recreate it or something, but you should hop on down to my Blobmania thread and signup, it's free :D lol
And you know i kind of did it with a mouse which really frustrates me... so i'm waiting on my wacom tablet so i can kickass, and i didn't really bother with easing and stuff like that (yes i know that there's like no gravity) but i was making this animation solely as a small practice for fluidity in my movements (but it's slow cos it's on the internet)
Maybe one day after i have finished my current two or three projects i'll actually make this, but people have to realise (especially socks, like what's up with him, is he always a pain in the ass?) that this is not practice for easing or anything else except for just plain frame by frame movement practice :p lol
what a wordful :o ?

Orange Blob, I apologize for my preteen bitching it was uncalled for. However I feel that the animation could use more gravity and easing in the movments. Although I do know what you were going for.

If you do end up submitting it to newgrounds, it wont be front page material, but I undoubtebly know it wont be blammed because although it is not great it is better than decent.

I hope with my new found maturity you and I can find a common ground and have a prosperous relationship.

yeah, i was bit overreactive, (lol like a lot) but you're a nice guy, and now it makes more sense to me (although with easing i'm like wtf, and i didn't (honestly and i swear to god) did not think about easing or any of that stuff with this, i mean it's obviously not a serious flash), currently i'm creating a world that is as much thought through and detailed as the castle series, and as good of quality as that, and i would never in my life submit trash like this to newgrounds let alone here... that would just be uncalled for, and seeing as this is my least favourite flash i've ever made, i didn't mind submitting it like not done.
But honestly i wouldn't even be proud of this if it was twice as good as it is, the frame rates horrible, (the easing and gravity, as everyone's told me) it all just doesn't mold into a perfect little world...
:b
so, whilst i may get a bit defensive over this from now on, it's still kind of shit in my eyes :D

Sounds like it must be really good if you can say it in the same sentence with Castle, haha. (Although I never was much of a fan of stick fights)

But this anim reminded me of Sloppy Fight 2 or whatever it is called, so it wasn't an awful anim, just not ma very good one.

God, I am so ****ing Bipolar....>_>

Oh and I don't blame you for defending your stuff, if somebody bashed my stuff I'd be pissed off too. So no worries.

I kinda liked it lol :P. Isn't it rather obvious though.. that most people are going for "pro" animations.. rather than enjoyable, storyline animations.. which may not ALL be animated to the best of their ability, but hey, it could be funny, cheesy, emotional.. you know... I was wondering why people are focusing so much on these fight-out short movies, when they could really do something awesome if they put their mind to it.

And the eyes i've done are fricken amazing, oh i just feel so weird.
But it's looking awesome, i just have to get my wacom tablet and flahs cs3 or 4 (i'm getting a paycheck soon, $500 american dollars) so i'll have enough to buy that and another (xbox) 360 game (LEFT4DEAD :D) blow the shit outta them :D

But i've got the demo and it is so awesome, but it gets boring if you don't have variety, and LOTR Conquest is kinda boring (the demo)
But i have to pay my rent so i think i should lay low on the spending, but it was awesome cos it was my friends birthday, so everyone came over to my house and was hiding, and he had no clue and they were like hi (and one was like **** you wanker, it was hilarious :D)

wat is the all ranting about errrrgh it hurts


Anyway, the animation was okay. There wasn't much force or easing, and movements were moderately smooth.
To me, it's just another typical animation with a background, effects, fighting, etc. You should heavily improve in one area in order to make your future animations look better. For example, work hard on perfecting movements. That way, even if the effects and art are bad, at least the choreography will be nicer.

What I'm trying to say is, try making an animation where it solely tests one aspect of what you want to improve on.

keeeeep on animating.

you sir are a complete and utter idiot, what you have said is nothing new, and this was based solely on one thing, i didn't make it on a serious note, it was more like, hey i'm bored, but i can't be bothered to do anything else!
And i'm better than this, this is like so old. and currently i'm doing an animation which is done like the castle series (the quality and stuff)!
And another animation is my mania which is another serious project... so don't tell me that in future animations *blah blah blah*, because quite honestly i don't care what you think sir, you have completely and utterly wasted my time with babble about things i already know and have addressed :D

The anim was good. A few points (probably already been posted but too bad):


The colour change, assuming it represented them powering up, could have been done with some effects, and is confusing (the orange and blue switch colours, should've given the blue guy a different colour set like red to green?)
Easing. Easing is everything. If you don't know what I mean, I'll explain in a sec.
Zoom in a bit.
Get a v-cam, they're awesome.

Easing:
Basically, it's just to make it more realistic. Instead of just the moment of impact, then instantly pull back, have the moment of impact, then a few frames of moving forward, gradually slowing down, then at least two frames where the limb is completely still, then pull back. Get it?
