I loved the speed and power that was demonstrated in this collab's stickmen. Mismay's ownage was one of the best on there.
This is probably the most well-animated action/fighting movie and it is obvious that you didn't hold back. I think that nobody is too good for simple figures or sticks, as made evident by this brilliant animation. A brilliant animator without the restraints of character detailing allows for more emphasis on the movement and that s what impresses me the most.
However, if you try and animate fully before you're absolutely proficient with sticks or animating in general, the pretty-looking characters will probably move stiffly, which is why I enjoy super-smooth stick movies over highly detailed motion tweens. This flash is a great success and I loved the twist at the end. I'm certainly looking forward to Solid Sticks 6.
Awesome job, xarugas03.
Great simplicity and animation
I loved the sticks as they were greatly animated and were quite humorous and violent. Also, most people didn't overuse blood too much. However, I didn't really like the song at all but that's just my opinion.
The lines are kind of too thick and when they formed pictures, they weren't all that impressive and didn't stay long enough for me to get a good look. Try animating sticks or basic characters instead of spending 4 seconds per frame, drawing a little line. No offense. You'll improve alot more by experimenting with sticks and such. And if you're going to draw lines, at least bump the frames per second up to like 25 fps or 30 fps. If you look at the onion skin, the lines should overlap quite a bit or at least in contact with eachother depending on how fast the thing is moving, especially for lines.
The action scenes were pretty fluid but it was too close up most of the time and it started getting choppy in the slower parts.
Also, TENTACLE RAEP
I loved how you animated the cat and it was really cute to see him raving on about how awesome the professor was and how he spoiled him. Very nice drawing with the tables and such. All my five r belong to this. (or ten)
That was barely worth watching. I say work on simpler animations until you become more comfortable with Flash 8 or whatever you have. Also, turn up the FPS or frames per second to around 20 for reasonably smoother animation. Also, leave madness to krinkles. He's about the only one that can do it properly. Even some of the more spirited tributes had nothing on the original madness episodes. Try to come up with your own design instead of copying someone else's and make your own design popular instead of a rehash of the old crap that we've all seen before.
BEST SONG EVAR
Oh my god, this song has been stuck in my head all day. The graphics were superb as well and the lyrics fit the video nicely. BTW what was the conductor dude that was flying blimp?
And twisted.... this completely caught me off guard although I was expecting something weird. Nice job on the animation. It was smooth and the animals were detailed nicely. Also, the trails of poop loked detailed as well.
