This is just absolutely beautiful.
The plot of this is very good. It is. My biggest problem though with this is the character animation, as some parts felt jankey like when the robots were twitching for example. Proportion also, really bugged me, I.E. The Wolf's head was a bit small and its neck was far to long, and how it all felt like it was done with a baseline black with what looks like a pen tool. Baseline Gradients too.
To put it simply, great plot and all that, more work on the animation / drawing in general.
I do like this otherwise.
Ok, The animation style for this is just simply lovely. I loved how it was done, epecially when the man drops his diary on the table, it was sudden and just made me go "Whoa!". The animation was fantastic, especially from an artistic perspective.
Sound is very well done and suits nearly every part of this. Theres a great use of ambients to this.
However plot-wise, the ending was such a huge letdown at the end and it felt somewhat generic. It just doesn't make me go "Whoa" similar to when the diary drops. I really like the movement of everything in this, I just loved how everything moved. I felt like a better ending could have been achieved though, it started off strong and felt really weak at the end.
I really do like the musical touch, I even feel like theres a touch of Binding of Issac in this too.
Stick figures though, next goal you need to set for yourself is to get rid of 'em and get actual "People" in. Also try and get rid of any white space you have. Less of it the better.
Thanks for the review bud, I'll give all that in mind :) I like how you compared it with Binding Of Issac, been playing that during breaks haha :) But anyway thanks ^.^
A very well animated piece, however some frames just didn't appeal to me from an artsy perspective and I just don't think the voicing suited this, not that the voicing was bad, it just didn't seem to suit it.
Some of the Animations felt a little choppy... Just here and there, and I don't think there was any regular blinking... Which felt really wierd after a while. I really liked the 2D animation in the nightmare scenes and especially when he trips, etc. I've barely seen any 3D Animation on Newgrounds, so that itself is quite an accomplish! Just fix up those 3D animations, get some bllnking and some more tones where needed along with some shadows and this would be even better!
Its rare to see dramatic pieces of animation on NG, well... Good ones. I would like to see this with more animation, which currently felt really lazy. And this does not need money or a kickstarter, "LUCKY DAY FOREVER" NEVER Asked for a kickstarter, and was nearly 2 and a half times longer, WITH Better Animation, Backgrounds, and visuals in general! Don't ask for money if your looking to create a 7'min animation! Make this for your passion!
Compared to the first, Better ACTION! IT LOOKS HAND DRAWN! A lot of DETAIL IN THE SURROUNDINGS, MUSIC, But the Gradient's! They are kllling me! You really did improve though! Just a bit more color next time....
Yah, I got carried away with gradients... ha ha...
This was VERY well done, The stunt's and character animation's, ALONG with the bit of gun on a string was ingenious! What you could have done better however, Gradient's were killing me, Should have packed some more color into this with out gradients. And there was a bit too much "Preset Shapes" as in some of the animations looked like they were made with pure circles, etc. And maybe some more sound effect's too. Just pack more detail, Color, and Background and this would be perfect! 9.5/10!
Yes. Too much gradient... sorry... :P
You got a good idea of what youtube is. And Adobe Flash, and High quality animation. And voicing.
