Dark and enjoyable
Though I enjoyed the 3-box comic and animation more than the main animation... the black and white style is more fitting to the dark thoughts Charlie is having, and overal it felt more creative than the style of the main animation. I would love to see you do a complete animation like that! Overal lovely dark and good animation! Great choice in music as well.
I thought it was a complete RIP-OFF ^^' .......no? too soon?
Glad you didn´t reverse the audio ^^
One question... did you animate it in this order or did you first animate it FWD and then reverse the whole thing? Because I had the feeling that some things wheren't RWD, like the part where he smiles at the girl. But it was a real soothing experience, except for the fact that you know he's gonna die right from the start hehe! Shame you didn't show that part though... ^^ But it wouldn't fit in the whole look and feel of it, i know... Still a Newgrounder, can't blame me! Thumbs up for this movie, really creative and fresh!
Last thing (even if I said 'one question' hehe) The girl in the preloader is really well drawn, but I found the facial features of your characters quite lacking, even for anime style drawing. Do you think you could incorperate the style of the preloader a bit more in your animations? You've got drawing skills you know, shame to kinda not see that in the actual animations. But it might be a personal opinion.
Good stuff anyway!
Lunar Link... :D
i'd like a phone like that! Hahah, never out of range. Great movie, he's a great character, and people at school are impersonating prawnboy already :D haha! Thanks for the good laugh.... but one thing, why would anyone want a fridge in space? Since it's a vacuum and zero Kalvin degrees, items tend to remain cold in it already! ^^
Great story and visuals!
To see something ever so fresh as waterpaint in an age of digital lack of physical labor blows a reluctant air trough my muffled lungs. Regardless of the high quality art- and voicework, the technical aspect of your presentation was a bit lacking. So as a Flash developer i'dd like to make a few pointers and tips:
1. Use the code " mcInstance.forceSmoothing = true " where you want to load the dynamic images, or rather rightclick the imported bitmaps in the library, select "properties" and check " allow smoothing " for a much better image quality when you're displaying a scaled image resolution. Use that, or display the images at a crisp 100%, no more, no less
2. There are quite some excellent open source pageflippers available on the net, with the functionality of using the arrow keys, navigation buttons or click about anywhere on a page to flip it. That would really make it a better viewing experience.

3. You might want to increase the size of the book to the full extend of the window, using as much of the space as possible for displaying the lovely imagery. The surrounding table didn't add anything to the experience, so you might want to keep that at a minimum
Well, there you have it. I hope this will help you in future endevors, which I eagerly await! For making my day and evening, I bid you goodnight!
Weekly 2nd place???
How can that be? This is in my opinion the greatest Flashy ever created! I didn't notice the cross-over of the stories until he grabbed her boob, great writing dude! It was emotional in some bits, only to find out that she is icecold and only thinks of herself haha... Great story, nice little animation and great humor! Only you could pull it of to make a Flash this long and keep me interested from begin to end.
Thanks for making my day!
Sure that was fun!
But you did create this in Flash right? Why the hell did you render it as a bitmap movie? The filesize could be close to non-exsistant with this movie, but it was quite big! For youtube I understand because it doesn't allow Flash movies, but for Newgrounds you should seriously use just Flash for this kinda thing.
For the rest, thumbs up! Nice little character you've put up, he looks like your everage enoying teenage whiner, like my WoW addicted little brother :D Going to watch your other submissions, later!
Nicely done, didn't saw that coming! The modelling was nicely done aswel, only I find it hard to believe that you've spent 300 hours on the project...seriously, what computer did you use for rendering? A PentiumII? Sure the softlighting take a lot of computing power, that was nicely done. But did you use a skylight? In future endevors you might try and use Mentalray® Renderer and photometric lighting, that gives the same effect and is really much much faster than Scanline with a Skylight.
Keep the great animations coming, thanks!
Actually I didn't use a skylight. Skylights don't exist in maya, only in 3dsmax.
I did actually use mental ray to render, with a custom ambient occlusion pass. The reason it took so long to render I think is that I had the quality on the soft shadows very high, which took a long time to render the beauty pass on closeups of the face, especially areas like the eyes where there is a lot of intersecting geometry and transparent surfaces that cause soft shadows to take a long time to render.
Don't watch this at work!
I hate you for being too goddamn funny :P Almost lost my job laughing out loud, didn't expect that! What the **** was that all about anyway? Great job making me laugh though.
Wow, that was really saddening! To see how the king has fallen to the hands of the bloodthirsty annoying new shows on TV like that Digimon crap and stuff... I miss Mickey and his Steamboat Willy! Actually got the PSX game of him on my shelves, go Mickey...you'll earn enough money to get back on top! And Pluto can have my kidney, if only I was a dog ;)
