I love how much emotion you were able to get from a simple story! Did you just come up with the poses in your head or did you take time figuring out every part of the man's reaction? It flowed really well!
There's so many questions I have about the story, but I'm just going to set them aside and say that I loved this! You did a nice job at keeping a consistent style all throughout the video. What I will say is that this just seemed like a trailer. It doesn't show the actual fight or any background as to why she has an arm. You took the time to show her fixing up her arm, but you didn't explain why. That bothered me. Your colors did improve from your last video though. You're getting better!
I think the other people here pretty much said what I was thinking. I just want to stress that I really liked how this one felt, like it was full of heart. The art style along with the voices made this piece really pop out for me. Great stuff!
Ahh, I hate myself for not being able to understand this. I feel like there WAS a story to this, but I just can't find it. Does she fight a demon from hell to come back to life? Or was she fighting her 'inner demon' so she could find a reason to live? I didn't know what the thing was at 1:01 either. Besides the story, I liked the music and colors the most from this. They just blended really well together.
Congratulations on making it to the open round! It must suck though to not have had anyone to compete against haha. I liked this animation, but the shift in tone at the end just didn't work for me. I think you spent too much time on the sad part. I was starting to believe in this sad story you were telling when it ended up just being made fun of at the end. I felt betrayed haha. The artstyle is good though. Although I agree with the other reviewers that say it looks like you copied the faces from other people. But if that's how you like doing it, it's fine with me.
Yeah I don't know if I deserved to advance honestly, but It wasn't my choice haha. Thanks for the review man! I tried to bridge the shift in tone you were talking about with the weird dog scene, but if It didn't work for you it didn't work so I understand. The faces has been something I've been getting and its something I guess I need to work on changing more in the future so thanks for stressing that in a nice way and I'm glad it didn't take away too much from the experience.
Dude, we're the only ones who posted something for our bracket! More chance we'll move on right? Haha, I don't know how I'll be able to stay in this tournament with school coming up next month. I'm secretly hoping you win for that reason :P
But anyway, I thought this was awesome! It was so ambitious, it's crazy! I think that's what made it look a little bad though. You tried to jam too much awesomeness in it that you didn't consider the time constraint. I really liked the camera shots you chose. It makes the movement really easy to follow (eg. you show the whole building falling apart and slanting after showing the guy sliding down a piece of rock. I was thinking "how is he sliding down?" And then you show how in the next shot. Stuff like that. It's good.) Good luck on moving to the next round!
Wow thanks I had no idea because I was just about to start watching the rest of the other entrys. I'm surprised I got this to a finished point it needs more touching up but I was out of time. I think your entry has a good chance of moving to the next round
I completely agree with iWalker's review below me. I just wanted to add that this is video definitely has one of the better action sequences I've seen throughout this tournament. So a tip of my hat to you good sir. It was a jolly good animation.
Thanks! And yeah I really focused more on the fight animation on this one.
UUuuggghhh, this was so gooooddd. It's such an original idea! I'm rating highly for the story, but I have to say the artwork was meh (for what little artwork you did haha). That imagination scene was really cool too. I'd suggest learning some color theory, because it felt like you don't really have a good grasp on it. In case you don't know, color theory just describes what colors look good with what. It took me like a few months to learn what the basic definition was for it haha.
I'm in love with the way you lip sync. Those lips move soooo nicely, I thought I was in lip sync heaven. Anyway, this was a really good story. I thought the ending came out of nowhere, but after rewatching it, I noticed the hints you dropped throughout the video that pointed towards what was about to happen. It was really creepy, I got goosebumps! For improvements, I'd say to just practise drawing people more often. This is going to sound mean, but the proportions of the different people in some of the shots were pretty bad.
Thank you :3 Ill make sure to do more figure drawings to improve my proportions. Practicing that should also improve my drawing speed as well. I'm glad someone noticed the hints I dropped through out the video.
The colors in this are amaaaaziiinnnng. The beginning seemed to have this really professional quality, but as the video progressed, like during the night, I don't feel like the same quality was there. Maybe you noticed you were running out of time and started rushing? Nevertheless, you seem to know your stuff. The end felt weird. I think it was the song that made me feel this way. Like when the song started at the end, and the title "Wilderness" popped up, I thought the story was barely about to begin. It didn't really feel like the end, you know? Anyway, I like it. I feel like it's going to be a close call between you and GlassesX7.
