The animation is good, especially the 3D-ish rotation. Seeing as how this is practice, I can forgive the lack of a story or smoother art or anything, but do try to use higher-quality sound effects in the future. The music is all right, but the sounds literally hurt my ears. You can record your own sounds or just search Google till you find something you like.
Also, you may want to select a song that matches the length of the animation. Either that or cut the song when the animation ends. It's a fun song, but letting it carry on after the apparent end just seems unprofessional to me.
Thanks for the review.
I'm trying these days to put in rotating camera movements, although at times it does get tricky and confusing, I'm sure I'll get it eventually.
I'm planning to start recording my own sounds as soon as I can get a decent sound recorder.
As for the song I did what you said and faded it out near the end.
I love constructive criticism it's what it's all about, thanks.
I just finished watching another "under judgement" movie that was exactly like this, and it makes me wonder if people are posting low-quality content as some kind of elaborate joke that actually isn't very funny.
Forgive me for sounding pretentious, but is there any reason for this to exist? I'd be perfectly fine with a practice animation, but you go and submit a title that leads me to believe that it'll be some kind of parody of Newgrounds in general--something that would be worth my time.
I said this to the other person who posted, but you only make yourself look bad by posting this. It makes people less likely to click on an animation with your name on it in the future. Is it worth the loss of respect and traffic just to pull an unfunny joke like this?
I don't understand people like you. This new wave of web users who seem to think that everything is serious business all the time. Newgrounds has been around since the late 90s. The Clock Crew has been around since 2001. Acquaint yourself with them at some time or another.
Honestly, I hate blamming things because I believe all creators deserve to have their content seen, but this animation is completely pointless. I detect a heavy dose of sarcasm in your description, and, well, I have to wonder what you expected to happen.
The animation is the same few frames repeated endlessly to extremely loud music that ends while the blobs keep on running. The art could have have a simple charm to it if anything else was substantial enough to hold any kind of appeal, but honestly, I wouldn't have enjoyed this no matter how nice the art was.
A quick glance at your user page shows that you're capable of better things than this. If I may ask, what drove you to post this kind of thing? It's detrimental to your reputation, if nothing else. I'm paying for Internet by the megabyte on a horribly unethical 3G plan, so any animation I watch has to be worth what I pay. This wasn't, and it makes me not want to watch any of your other animations, which I'm sure are a lot better based on their ratings. But I won't watch them. I don't feel confident that it would be worth the money, this being my first impression of your work.
I like to assume the best of everyone, so I won't judge you based on this. Please, though, don't do this kind of thing to yourself. Posting a low-quality thing like this does more harm than good, even if you were trying to be funny.
Every time I hear a cello played in this style, I think of Game of Thrones. I take it that was an influence?
Regardless, despite this just being 34 seconds, it's promising. It's easy to listen to and I could easily imagine it with ambient sounds of blacksmiths' hammers clanging on swords, ring mail shaking as soldiers marched, kings and generals shouting orders, etc.
Finish this. This is good. I can't go 5 stars now, but once this is finished, it's a high probability.
Great. Of cource i will finish this!
Thank you for the review.
I love the vocals. They're soft and human, talented, but not making a show of it like an opera singer. I love that kind of voice to death and I wish there was more of it.
I love the melody. Bard music has always been a favorite of mine. It somehow always produces some of the prettiest melodies.
I love the lyrics. They fit the melody perfectly and are poetic to read on their own, though they sound even better in the song.
This is my favorite song on Newgrounds, and I don't see that changing any time soon.
I don't often critique music, so forgive me if I miss something obvious.
The additional instrument at 0:50 sounds really forced and abrupt, and its melody just doesn't sound right in comparison to the rest of the song. Nearly the same thing again at 1:33, but a little better. Still, it sounds out of place and I think you'd do better adding variation with instruments closer to what you're already using.
Those two bits aside, it's a solid track. It's nothing new and honestly pretty forgettable in the dubstep genre, but it's dubstep nonetheless.
The flat colors work well in this picture--this is a simplicity that many people who draw flat fail to achieve. The line thickness is just right for the style, as is the mostly black-and-white feel. The light background helps Stikki, outlined in black, stand out more.
The composition is nice, too. It leads your eye up from the bottom of the page and focuses not on her breasts, but her face. That, combined with a neutral pose, presents her nudity as non-pornographic. This ensures that you won't get as many views on this as many of your other works, but I find it appealing all the same.
I haven't seen your art in awhile, but I like the coloring style you've taken on in recent pictures. I find it much more vibrant than before.
The shading on her right armpit is awkward, though, like her upper arm is twisted around. Also, with her arm over her head like that, her right breast should be pulled up and thinned out a little. Lastly, the simplicity of her bellybutton looks strange compared to the depth of the shading--like it's second clitoris, actually.
Away from the complaints now. I like how you're always been willing to add a bit more meat to your girls, while most anime-influenced artists keep them thin enough that a nice whack with a roll of toilet paper would break a bone or two.
I suggest opening paid commissions and posting these pre-paid pictures on Newgrounds, while keeping your un-commissioned work behind Hentai United if you wish. That way, you would still get paid for your work, the buyer would get a custom picture, and the general population would get to see it.
On the picture itself, what I can see of it is good. As always, I like your style, even among other anime styles. Your facial expressions are intense and your shading is basic and charming. However, when everything else is shaded, why isn't her flower? The petals, plus the light source, would cast shadows on it, and none are there.
