TDS III: Shadow's End TDS III: Shadow's End

Rated 1 / 5 stars

This really wasn't too interesting too me, for a number of reasons.
Firstly the animation wasn't all that great and could have used some more time and effort to improve it. Clearly the skills are there, but it could be so much better and I see the potential for it to be so.
The art style seemed too simplistic and as a result it didn't feel especially visually pleasing. I feel that it was limited by the animation, which is further proof that you could use more practice.
The voices were just awful; the script was embarrassing, the acting was dull and the recording quality was nothing short of lousy. I recommend researching proper recording equipment or at least looking for way to improve your technique with the equipment available.
Perhaps it's because I'm coming in at the 3rd episode, but regardless I wasn't really invested in the story. I didn't feel like anything for happening and most of the run time was exposition. Planning out the script around including some action wouldn't go amiss, though you left the episode on a decent enough cliffhanger. The problem is pacing; if your going to have an exposition episode, at least try to make it interesting.

I apologise if I seem like I'm just bashing this, but I feel that it deserves my honesty.
A little more time spent and this could be awesome; the artistic process is a long and tiring one, but the final product is so much sweeter when you give it the time it deserves.
Could be lack of practice for all I know, but wether your doing this for fun, or you want to take animation seriously you deserve to know what people think.
It did make the daily 3rd and it's reception seems to be somewhat positive judging by the star rating, but sadly I can not consider myself part of that apparent majority.

Awesome animation with some impressive choriography.
The effects could have been more impressive, however I guess the simplistic nature of your style sort of compliments it well.
Too simplistic to be perfect but damn worth of the daily first place.

Cool animation and interesting visuals.

On a side note however, I'm not sure what you're on, but please cut back.
It can't be good for you.

Haha thanks for the concern

SMB: The Mushroom Hero 11 SMB: The Mushroom Hero 11

Rated 3 / 5 stars

The script is riddled with cleches and the characters can be had to make out, but I can see that a lot of work has gone into this and the fight scenes were more than enougth to keep me entertained.

In spite of it's flaws, I can't bring myself to say that I didn't enjoy watching it.

Very awesome! It was funny and well animated. I feel that I could have benefited from musical accompaniment, but as it is I enjoyed it.

The Internet You Need The Internet You Need

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

A fresh look on an old animation format.

Just as cheesy as the old style informative films, but with better audio quality and some updated humour.
My only real issue with this the fact that it loads automatically, then repeats itself once the film is finished.

Also I noticed that tpm has some strong feelings about this topic. However the whole one sided opinion of these informative cartoons is one of their defining attributes, making it that much more authentic.
Just a side note.

Not as it once was

While I respect character development, even in a comedic series like this, this section is for picking at what's wrong or right about this particular entry.
These transition episodes just seem to be quite dull, but I like that your doing this, rather than just rebooting the character. At least your trying to get it over with, but at the same time it would be a mistake to rush this story arc.

Rated 4 / 5 stars

Successful flight.

Considering the apparent time restraints you were under, I think that you did a pretty good job. The punchline wasn't that funny, however the animation and quality were awesome.
A little more practice writing under pressure could do you wonders. Hope to see you on the front page again soon.

Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Excellent delivery

The animation style is somewhat sloppy, but the comedic timing was excellent. I could see it coming, however I wasn't prepared for how much of an impact it would have. And that final punchline again, just classic.

Awaiting the return of the cult

Funny, but unfortunately I feel that without the squirrel's the comedy suffers.
Still I hope that she does improve from this experience. Just stay away from the tacos and she'll be fine.
